About Us

Jim’s Automotive Shop

Jim’s Automotive was founded in 1997 by Jim and Joann Molek with the original location in Hudson, Ohio.  In 2001 we moved to the larger and current facility at 4646 Darrow Road in Stow.  In 2011 we unexpectedly lost Jim to a heart issue.  Joann continued to operate the business with the same honest philosophy that she and Jim started the business with.  In 2013 Eric Davis was promoted to General Manager and a great team was formed.  We hope to continue to serve the community for a long time to come.



Major & Minor Engine Repair

We pride ourselves in providing expert engine maintenance techniques while utilizing cutting edge technology and hassle free customer service paired with upfront, honest, and fair by the hour pricing.


Today's vehicles are equipped with very complicated braking systems. All late model vehicles have computerized anti-lock braking systems that should always be serviced by a qualified experienced technician. Age, mileage, the type of driving you do, and wear and tear on your vehicle all contribute to brake inefficiency. Jim's Automotive Shop and our certified mechanics will evaluate the entire braking system and will restore your vehicle's system and braking performance to factory specifications.


A tire and wheel alignment every 6,000 miles can greatly extend the life of your tires. At Jim's Automotive Shop, we provide a wide range of alignment services performed by our certified technicians.


If your car’s steering and suspension aren’t performing, you’re in for a bumpy ride...literally. At the first sign of noise when driving over bumps, trouble turning, uneven tire wear, or wandering wheels, stop by your Jim's Automotive Shop. We will get you back on the road smoothly.


Unfortunately, many people neglect to perform routine maintenance services on their vehicles. Getting scheduled oil changes, tire rotations and alignments will keep your car running optimally and prevent the need to get costly repairs done later. Simply put, maintenance can help keep your car running for many trouble-free miles. From monthly visual inspections to comprehensive service checks, keeping an eye on everyday wear and tear can stop small problems from becoming expensive headaches.

“We are new in the Stow area and my husband said go to Jim's, after calling around other shops. He spoke to Eric Davis, the manager, and found him to be knowledgeable and reasonably priced. Thought I had an oil leak and called Jim's; Eric said "come out and we'll take a look". Found out my car's OK. Billy Denham checked the car, and didnt find an oil leak. I was not charged for Billy's expertise time. Very good customer service from both Eric and Billy. So glad we found an automotive shop that is honest and close by.”

“Great place in the Stow/ Hudson area for auto work. They shoot it straight and don't try to B.S. you. They quoted us a price..found out that it required a little more work, and still stuck to the original quote while fixing all the issues. No need to look anywhere else...this is the place you need to work on you vehicle! Customer for life!”
