Comment: This guy is a crook!!! I'd never had any excavation work done and he took advantage of my ignorance. He quoted me $4500, and as far as I knew he had given me a fair price for the work I wanted done. It turned out to be triple the price. A half (1/2) days work for an excavator and dump truck, and he didn't have to haul anything away. Gone by noon.
Pros: Cheap prices
Cons: Dishonest, rude, lazy (had my car 6 months still not fixed and it took him 5 months and a lot of nagging before he looked at it at all
Comment: Friends. I want to warn people about my experience at Jimmy's Automotive. His shop is located in Winslow Maine on the Augusta road. I took my wife's car there in March for electrical work. It worked fine for a week but the same problem came back right off. Right now the ABS and AWD do not function, which is what he was paid 1000.00 to fix. He half assed it and it does not work. My car died about the same time. We bartered a brand new custom built computer system for the repairs. It sat in the same spot in his yard for FIVE DAMN MONTHS. Untouched. Now we are at six months and he has actually finally touched it and cannot figure it out. He is rude!!!! Told me I cannot ask him any questions about the car. WTF. It is my car and has sat there six months and I cannot ask anything about it?" Give me a break!!! When I pursued it he yells and kicks me out of his shop. Unprofessional. I did not have the means to tow it way back when. Of course he kept saying call me at such and such a time and it will be worked on. Each time it was the run around. Then he tells my wife he told me what I wanted to hear each time to get me to leave the shop. Nice huh?? He seems to be a bullshit artist. I would hate anyone I know to go through this same situation. Avoid this shop like the plague. Last time I posted he called and asked me to take down the post and I did to be nice. It dawns on me to stop being nice to people like this. Unless he makes good on this this post is STAYING. Be warned do not take your vehicles there. You would be better off paying triple than to go through what I am going through.
