WELCOME TO JIM JENNINGS TRANSMISSIONS
The Jennings family team knows our reputation and our customers are our most valuable assets and protect them with everything we do. We strive to rate a 5 star review every time we have the opportunity to help someone. That means our shop promises to diagnose transmission and driveline problems accurately, honestly and efficiently. Every repair recommendation is based on "cost versus benefit" with the goal of insuring our customers have an informed.. opinion as to whether they should proceed with a repair.
