  • Thursday, March 30, 2017, 2:25 pm [EST] Subject: good experience Message: Check the AC problem and engine light. Jorge identified the problems quickly and gave me good advice. He did not charge me for the check at all although I did not do any repair this time. Before that I went to the car dealer and the quote for checking the AC itself is 100+. Really good experience!

    Subject: brake liners
    Message: I have a 1999 Ford Taurus which needed a replacement of brake liners, rear drums, master cylinder and wheel cylinder. I got a quote from Firestone for $1000+. I found out about Jorge and I have got everything fixed for 550$. Very good work
  • I would definitely advise you not to drive to Winston Salem to fix the car but take it to Jorge. He has a great reputation and I have been taking two cars to him the past three years.
  • I got quote from Meineke to fix my oil leaking problem for $340 but Jorge only asked $220. Decent price here and never had any problem. I guess the reason why his price is so low is the difference between privately owned garage and corporate garage. Firestone or Meineke they have workers and managers to pay so the cost will be on the customers. Jorge cut out a lot of unnecessary cost.
    In my point of view. I trust him.

    Subject: Nice painting
    Message: My car needed painting work after a minor accident. I got estimated price from several body shops. Jorge provided me the best one. It turned out that the painting made my car looked like new! Plus, Jorge responded to my inquiry very fast. I was satisfied with the painting job and the service of Jorge Garage. Thanks!

    Subject: Turbine Speed Sensor (TSS)
    Message: Great price, honest service, and thumb up! Jorge's would be the place to go if you have had enough bullshit from the dealership.
    I know this is a kind of rare problem, and it seems only Ford/Mazda use this so called TSS in their cars. My vehicle, a 2004 Mazda6, had its check engine light on, and I pulled the code from Autozone, which turns out to be P0715. I went to the dealer, they checked it for me, and said all I need to do is to replace this TSS. What was ridiculous was that, the dealer asked $140 for the TSS, and 2 hours of labor for the replacement, so that would come in total of $360. Thanks to google and a friend of me, I could tell that they are justing exaggerating about the price. In the end, I ordered the part online for $17, and had it installed at Jorge's for $50 (about 45 min of service). What Jorge did in addition was that he cleaned the exterior part of the engine, washed the battery, explained my concerns in great detail, and gave a suggestion of better maintenance. My thanks to Jorge, and he surely rocks.

    Subject: Jorge:Thank you and miss you guys!
    Message: I had been in Durham during the past year, and now I have been back in China. Thanks so much for Jorge and his crew, even though at that time my car usually works well. He is so nice and professional! He helps many Chinese friends out with the problems of their cars. We miss you guys!

    Subject: Water Pump
    Message: I am new to Raleigh. I traveled over 2,000 miles from the Southwest to relocate here. Weeks after I arrived, I decided to take the car to the Cadillac dealer to have my 2003 DeVille serviced. I paid the mechanic $200 to diagnose my problems. Was I ever surprised when the mechanic gave me a laundry list of items needing service. It amounted to over $5,000. OUCH! I was hurting big time because that was not a cheap fix. Just the waterpump, upper and lower hoses, radiator, coolant and gaskets came up to $2,500. My co-worker heard my plight and recommended Jorge. She said he was awesome. I had great respect for my co-worker and decided to give Jorge a call. I scheduled the appointment on a Friday and by Tuesday the job was completed. The cost? $910. WOW! I've had the car for some time now and I am S-A-T-I-S-F-I-E-D-! I have a new mechanic for life! He is excellent and his crew is too! THANKS JORGE!!!

    Subject:
    Message: I've been to Jorge's garage several times, and every time I have been thoroughly satisfied with the experience. He always fixes the car quickly, and the prices always seem more than reasonable. I was recommended his services by a friend, and I would gladly recommend him to anyone else.
    One example, I took my car to another shop, who informed me that I needed to replace a part for my engine, which would cost me close to a thousand dollars. I took it into Jorge, he said all that needed replacing was a faulty wire, which cost me only 30 dollars.

    Subject: Best Auto Repair in Town!
    Message: I need to get some parts replaced and repainted, and Jorge chagred me 40% of what other shops quoted me. They also encountered paint color code problem but solved the problem smoothly. They did an excellent job, and were very honest with the prices and such. Someone like me who knows barely anything about cars, I didn't get ripped off and got quality service. Highly recommended!
  • Friday, May 11, 2012, 6:04 pm [EST]
    Subject: You made it Jorge, thanks!
    Message: I have hit my rear bumper, and I brought my car to Jorge. It takes some time for them to fix it, and they also met some problem during the repaint. But they solved it, and finally they did great job on that. The price is reasonable. I think I have made a good decision. Thanks Jorge! You a honest and hard working man!
  • Saturday, April 28, 2012, 2:25 pm [EST]
    Subject: my several fix experience
    Message: I think Jorge is nice and honest person. I went to there to fix alternator, brake pads and shoes and oil change, the labor is reasonable (I bring the parts). the quality is perfect. I recommend him strongly.
  • 3/26/12:
    Hi Jorge,
    I will be posting a good review about your business on our blog. Right now, Duke students typically go to N-Tune, but I think your place is much better.
  • Monday, February 6, 2012, 4:11 pm [EST]
    Subject: Good job
    Message: Jorge's garage fixed my badly damaged car with a good quality and very reasonable price. I strongly suggest other to go there since I will go there next time.

    Subject: My experiences with Jorge
    Message: We heard a lot positive info about Jorge and last week our Honda Civic had acceleration problem and we just had our car repaired by Jorge today (Sep 18, 2011). He charged us about 1/3 - 1/2 of a regular dealer's service department. We serviced our car regularly in one of Honda's dealers. I would recommend Jorge to others.

    Subject: review
    Message: My friend recommended me to the garage to repair my car. Jorde is a nice person. He checked my car immediately, and found the problem soon. Because I can not afford too much money for the car. He kindly gave me some advice and repaired it quickly. And the price was reasonable. I am very satisfied about it.
  • Recommend a reliable auto repair shop - Jorge's Garage
    3/10/2011
    I've been to the garage twice and get extremely satisfied service at very very cheap price. Jorge is a nice person and offers considerate and honest service to first-time car owners / inexperienced drivers. His email address is jorgesgarage@gmail.com, and he is very responsive to Emails.
    He said he has a friend who can speak Chinese but I never tried this Chinese translation service.

    Subject: Good job and cheap
    Message: I only spend 120$ for changing two frontal brakes. Thanks Jorge. You really did a excellent job and save me a lot of money.

    Subject: great and honest service
    Message:
    Yesterday when I changed my oil, they told me that my stirring wheel pump is leaking and they need to change it for $500. For some reason, it did not feel right what they told me so I went to Jorge for a second opinion and he said my stirring wheel was fine. He was really nice and I really appreciate his honesty and integrity. I hate when people, like the people who changed my oil, assume I have $500 to throw away - they could not care less about me or my car but just want my money. From now on I will go to Jorge - I want my car to be in honest hands and give my money to somebody who earned it and not just tricked me. He is a very nice guy.

    Subject: Friendly, Honest, Cheap.
    Message:
    I went to Jorge's Garage several times since I have an old SUV, I was surprised every time by his techniques and very reasonable price. Several days ago, my starter didn't work well, Jorge found the problem and changed a new starter for me which only charged less than half price of other garage, and meanwhile, I bought a new alternator belt and asked him to replace it for me because the car kept making big noise when I started it, Jorge found the belt was a little misplaced, so he fixed it without charge anything and saved the new belt for me. Jorge is a very honest, warmhearted, friendly gentleman and hard worker. He is the best mechanic I ever met.
    Jorge, Thank you! Wish you all the best in 2011!

    Subject: nice and honest guy. great job done.
    Message: My old car had a problem on exhaust pipe and Jorge fix it today for only $60, plus a 6-month warranty on it. Jorge also help me check some other issues i concerned.
    one thing is about the driving belts. when I did oil change in Precision tune about half years ago, I was told that I had to change driving belts otherwise they may be broken anytime. they said it cost $120. I refused it at that time. Today Jorge help me check the driving belts and tell me that they are still ok. Even I want to change, it only cost $50!
    I think I will definetely be back to Jorge if any problems happened in the future.
  • Tuesday, December 21, 2010, 6:38 pm [EST]
    Subject: Saved the day!
    Message: Jorge is great! I had taken my car to the dealer for a routine check and they found something that needed repair. The dealer quoted almost $350 total for parts and labor. So I wanted to check some other options! I looked at another local repair shop and they quoted $280. I was thinking that was a pretty good deal, so I was going to take my car there. But then I said...why don't I get one more estimate. That's when I called Jorge. His estimate was only $160!!!! I could not believe it, I had to ask again and again to make sure he was quoting the right thing. So of course I brought it to him the next day and he had it ready for me at the end of the day like he promised. He even saved me the old parts and the boxes from the new parts so I could see what he used, and he has a 6 month warranty on his repairs! I was so impressed. I will definitely use Jorge again in the future.

    Subject: kind, cheap and best service
    Message: This is the second for my car having repaired at the Jorge's garage. Jorge is an earnest and skilled man. He checked the carís brake system carefully and spent me lesser money to repair the brake system. Highly recommended!
  • Saturday, December 4, 2010, 11:46 am [EST]
    Subject: Kind, honest and cheap; Best service!
    Message: My Honda Civic has problems with the Visor and left door handle. Jorge helped me find the cheapest parts and charged a reasonable price for the labor fee. After he realized that it was not to change a new handle, he told me honestly and returned the handle he ordered from somewhere else. In total, I saved almost half money compared with other auto stores (I went to more than one auto stores to ask price before I took my car to Jorge.). He was very patient and careful when he repaired my car. When I was waiting there for 1 hour, I could tell how hard these Mexican buddies were working. I believe they deserve a prosperous business.

    He did good job replacing rear brake shoes for my car. I will ask him to do transmission flush later. His quotes are significantly lower than dealer's.

    Subject: The most helpful, kind, responsible, and honest mechanic I have ever met -- Thank you, Jorge!
    Message: I brought my Saturn SL2 to Jorge a while ago to fix the service engine light problem. At first we thought it was a simpler emissions problem (faulty solenoid), not knowing that the problem had to do with a much more complex problam: the PCM that gives off the service engine light faultily. As far as I know it would cost probably close to $1000 to get the PCM changed and reprogrammed at another car garage. Being a very kind and responsible mechanic Jorge was able to get a used, working PCM from his friend for free, and went all the way to get it programmed for me by going to the car dealer directly (despite the dealer's initial unwillingness to program the PCM without us buying a new one from them [which would cost at least $600]). Throughout the whole process Jorge did not charge me anything above the small amount of money that he charged me for fixing the solenoid, out of a belief and strong sense of responsibility that he should help his customer resolve their problems completely and fully. I am impressed by Jorge's honesty, kindness, and sense of responsibility, and can tell that he's is really genuine in helping his customer and always thinking in terms of his customers' best interest. I would highly recommend Jorge to anyone and everyone!

    Subject: Great Job!
    Message: The power outlet of our car(SUZUKI VERONA 2005) didn't work on Nov 13th. I drove it to Jorge's, he just spend 3 minutes to spot and fix the problem, and for free! I recommend his garage, he is really a reliable mechanic.
  • Wednesday, November 10, 2010, 4:25 pm [EST]
    Subject: Muchas Gracias
    Message: If you are looking for quality and affordable price auto repair, this is the best place for you. Honestly I do not know much about car/engine/parts, so I got an oil changed recently and technician noted problems of my rear struts, I was given a very expensive quote which is out of mind for many of us especially me. I'm glad I found Jorge's Garage and at his best profession he solved my car's problem with a very reasonable price with six month warranty for the auto parts. I strongly recommend this place for his excellent service from many years experience ! Thank you so much Jorge's Garage, appreciate it! My car can now travel better and safer again ~

    Subject: Super Job with Low Charge
    Message: I love my old car and wanna keep it for longer, Jorge makes it possible. My speed sensor stop working for a few months. I went to the dealer, AAA and other car care services, I was told to be charged at least $500 or even more for changing parts. Furthermore, some suggested to change this or that parts, (which was honestly told by Jorge later that was not necessary at all), totally up to $1500. I was upset and even considered to sell this car instead of spending so much on repairing. Jorge is the last one that I gave a try. He provided clear explanation, ordered parts immediately, and have the new sensor replaced skillfully. He only charges me $250 including new speed sensor and other 2 minor changes. For years after we moved to NC, we haven't found a perfect car-care-service until we luckily met Jorge. Jorge is proved to be a great mechanic by his great work, low charge and respectable honesty. From now on, we'll stay with this reliable mechanic Jorge.
  • Monday, November 1, 2010, 3:00 pm [EST]
    Message: Jorge has worked on three of my family's cars--brakes, bushings, power steering pump, AC, and timing belt--and I'll continue to go to him any time I have a problem. He is honest, explains things clearly, does as much as is needed but not more, and charges much less for service than he could. Highly recommended.
  • 10/20/2010
    Just want to say Kudos to Jorge who took time to trouble shoot my V70 XC without throwing unnecessary parts at the problem like the Cary Volvo dealer who also would not reveal trouble codes which I had pulled anyway. Jorge is a very honest mechanic. Enjoy doing business with him.

    Subject: Oil change
    Message: I had a service of oil change for my Toyota 2003 on a Sunday afternoon. Jorge's service was great, economic and quickly. I know a little bit of that stuff since I used to do by myself, however, since I did not have gears with me now, then I turned to his shop. I asked him to use my oil filter (purchased months ago with a coupon) and he reduced the fee for my own part.
  • Tuesday, September 21, 2010, 10:34 pm [EST]
    Subject: Emissions issue
    Message: I went to Jorge few days back and had an excellent experience! He is an expert at his work and is able to detect the issues very quickly. Furthermore, he understands the difficulties students face and tries to keep the expenses involved as low as possible. There was a faulty sensor in my Sonata, because of which I wasn't able to clear my emissions test. Jorge invested a lot of time in looking for this sensor and got my car in good shape! I was highly impressed with the amount of dedication he puts in his work. Lastly, I would say he is a very helpful, honest and down-to-earth person. Highly recommended!

    Message: I brought in my Jeep Grand Cherokee that had been having problems. I had numerous quotes on the car for a part I did not even need. Jorge fixed it for a fraction of the cost. Best shop in town, and I have been to them all!!

    Subject: Cheap, friendly, fast service
    Message: We wanted to sell our car but didn't have the time to advertize and communicate with potential buyers. Jorge sold our car within a week, hassle free, and we gave him a percentage of the price. Very quick, easy and affordable.

    Subject: Good place to check out!
    Message: I changed my front brake rotors and pads last week. Jorge did a great job and only charged me $40 for the labor. I will have my timing belt change there some time soon. Will write more reviews then.
  • Tuesday, August 31, 2010, 4:30 pm [EST]
    Subject: Nice service, much cheaper
    Message: I got the drive belt changed by Jorge at his garage. Jorge was very nice and finished it in an hour. He charged me only $55, and the quotes I got from other places vary from $120 to $220. Very impressive.
  • Saturday, August 28, 2010, 8:32 am [EST]
    Subject: Compliment
    Message: I got the CV shaft, brake, belt and tires changed on my VW in Jorge's workshop just two days ago. Jorge is a big heart, warm and honest mechanic I have ever met. He charged me $130 for the labor whereas it should be more than $500 in other work shop, no to metion the VW dealer. More interestingly, Jorge let me watch the whole procedure and taught me the basic knowledge. I like that. Strongly recommend!

    Subject: Friendly, reliable, and cheap service
    Message: I couldn't start the engine of my Honda Accord 2000 so I called Jorge and he rushed to where I was. Then he told me to drive to his garage to fix the problem. He explained what he was doing and taught me many things about the car. I and my friend enjoyed his professional service and friendliness so much. I know it's really hard to find a good mechanic who you can trust and rely on, especially when you are not a local people, but here you have Jorge. We will definitely go to him if we have any problem or whatever with the car! Strongly recommend!
  • Friday, August 27, 2010, 8:28 pm [EST]
    Subject: Car broke down and he came in 20 mins
    Message: I can't start a car and I called Jorge. He came in the next 20 mins and inspected it. Only the problem was the connector to the battery. Then he jumped the battery and I drove following him to his garage with my friend, the car's owner. He fixed that and it costed 25 USD. He is really sincere and transparent. I'm impressed.
  • If somebody has his car fixed at Jorgeís garage, please share the experience.--Jun Yes, I did. He is pretty good one I have to say. ---Yu
  • August, 2010, My 97 Honda Passport "Check Engine Light" was on.I went to a shop in Chapel Hill, they told me the code for the engine light is p0401/exhaust gas recirculation slow or insufficient. They replaced my EGR valve, which cost me $380, but it didn't fix the problem. I had to put the old EGR back. After I came to Jorge's Garage, Jorge used a scanner (Jorge said it is a cutting edge scanner) hook up with OBD2 sofware system on the car, and he fixed it for $60 without changing EGR valve.
  • Jorge said, a guy came to the shop and ask him to turn off the "Check Engine" light without fixing the cause, because the guy wants to sell the car, as long as the light can be off before the car is sold, he doesn't want to invest on fixing the problem. Jorge refused the job.
  • My car's service engine light just went on and I am looking for a reliable, cheap car/ auto service center to fix the problem for me. Does anyone have a place to recommend?
    I had very good experience with Jorge's Garage. My car had same problem as yours and I fixed it over there and passed the state inspection after.
  • Speed Sensor on my 99 Ford Taurus stop working, I went to one shop, they wanted to charge me $200 for it. Then, I went to Jorge's Garage, Jorge said the part is $55 and labor is $50, so Jorge fixed it for $105-->half the price of the other shop.
  • I participated in a workshop that was led by Jorge at his garage today (August 21, 2010). He went over many details on what to look at when shopping for used car. Details such as paint shade and how to tell the different shade to identify if the car was in an accident before. He also went over prices, engine and oil problems. I found the workshop to be helpful as i am looking to buy a car. I definitely will bring my car to Jorge's shop. He seem like a nice and honest person.
  • Check engine light went on on my 2002 Saturn SL2: P0446/Gas evaporative control malfunctioning, I went to 2 shops, and they couldn't figure out which part caused the problem. After I went to Jorge's, Jorge showed me how fuel is sent to engine, and how evaporated gas is re-circulated back to engine, and he fixed the problem in 5 minutes.
