Located in Granby, just past the high school and middle school at 349R Salmon Brook Street is Granby’s newest car repair shop: Jimmy’s Tire and Auto. This fast-growing company opened in January of 2019 and has been welcomed by this beautiful town. General manager and head mechanic, Jim Leitao, has been in the automotive industry since he was 15 and the amount of devotion he has to his work is exceptional. People refer to Jim as “honest,” “trustworthy,” and an “all around great guy.”
This car repair and maintenance garage does all you could imagine and more. Jimmy’s is known for brake services, oil changes, and A/C services. Jimmy’s provides services for all makes and models on site with state-of-the-art tools and equipment, and has been serving the Farmington Valley area for over 15 years.
When asked what makes him different from other repair garages, Jim responded, “We bond with our customers, vendors, and community on a personal/personable level. Everyone who walks into our shop is treated like friends and family, rather than “just another broken car.” A job is not completed to Jim until he hands over the keys to a satisfied customer who will return again knowing only the highest quality of parts were installed right — the first time.
With hard work and dedication, Jim strives to meet his goal of opening more locations throughout the Farmington Valley within the next few years. Knowing your mechanic is an important factor when it comes to maintenance on your car, and Jim encourages everyone to stop in and introduce yourself.
