Guys a thief. Half the time he cant figure out what is wrong, even something as simple as a tire leak. Other times, he cant fix it the first time, or the second, or the third. And dont be fooled, he doesn't do all his own work, he farms out the bigger or more complex jobs to others who are just as incompetent and could care just as little. He engages in both insurance and warranty fraud. he charges customers for replacing parts he never replaces and services he never performs. Having earned himself the title of "The Clamp King" for his belief he can fix any automotive issue by putting clamps on it and the customer will not notice, no repair he makes can be counted on to last or be done correctly. Complete A-hole. Although, maybe you could bring him something like a ford escort and he could figure out where the washer fluid goes.Maybe. But he'll probably just throw and bunch of clamps on it and say its fixed hoping you dont know it. Consistently screws customers and credit card companies by not touching cars that are brought back to him for his screwing up the repair the first time, hoping to not restart the clock on the claim. He has mastered the art of escaping liability for his malfeasance because he has faced every type of claim throughout the history of this business which should tell you all you need to know. The only way he stays in business is through police and organized crime connection in the sh*t bag state of rhode island.

I purchased my car from carmax and when I called to get warranty work done they referred me to J N S(glad they did). Brought my car down there with a ton of issues. Rick made the process as easy as possible. The guy honestly went out of his way to get my business. 1- Rick called my warranty company for me 2- He scheduled me a rental car that was covered by my warranty 3- Warranty company's are always a pain in the ass but Rick called em did all the leg work got them to pay without having me wait long. 4- I ended up paying less that what my original deductible was! 5- probably my favorite part of my experience was when I picked up my car it was WAXED AND DETAILED! Like I said these guys went above and beyond for my car. Thank you Rick. P.s if you have carmax extended warranty just skip the middle man and call rick they'll charge the same deductible, give you a better warranty that carmax does on their work 3year/36k! Jose C.

Not only is Jeff a great and enthusiastic person but so are his employees. They make a customer feel like they want to be there and comfortable about leaving their vehicle with them. Two other great selling points are 1. Pricing. Very fair which is huge in the mechanic's realm. 2. Video sent to you after inspection. Incredibly great service idea. Transparency is not a trait for mechanics. I highly recommend Primary Care Auto. John R. East Greenwich, RI
