I need to head up there to see him soon for my annual, new tires, and brakes.

I know he had thought about putting a drive together so when I am up there, I'll see if he has made any headway on that.
I would love a drive up to the hills.

In for a drive as well. Gotta get my "new" car to Jason for a once-over! So far, so good, however.

Jason will be adding the VAP powerpack and dual clutch to my 09 V8VR this month :-)

reached out to Jason this yr but due to scheduling and his location simply was unable to get in for the annual service and a couple other small things. with that said this makes the 2nd year I've been to Select and no complaints there. Jay is a nice guy and will talk about the car at length with you. with their new facility and additional covered storage, I had no hesitation leaving it for a couple wks while I sourced parts (which they also have no issues with).

Long overdue but wanted to give a shoutout to Jason for his incredible breadth of knowledge, industry contacts, and willingness to help in any capacity for Aston owners.

I recently purchased a 2010 Vantage, did all my due diligence before buying the car, only to realize a week after the purchase that I was fraudulently sold a vehicle that needed a complete transmission replacement/rebuild. Long story short, before I knew the nature of the sale, I thought I was on the hook for a $37,000 complete replacement as quoted by the local dealer. Luckily I had seen this thread and reached out to Jason for advice - who spoke with me at length a number of times, provided all technical guidance, and offered to help in any way he could. The fact that he shared multiple hours of his valuable time with someone in a different state, without a car to charge on, speaks a lot about this guy IMO. Had the sale not been legally revoked, I would've shipped the car to Jason to have the transmission rebuilt.

Side note, not sure if the owner plans on selling this as-is or getting it fixed but BUYER BEWARE - this car needs a transmission rebuilt/replaced and is also towards the end of its clutch life. MAYBE a good buy at $30-35K if someone wants to put in the work:

Looks like a clean car in the picture and no mention even now on that in the ad. Wow.

Raza - great to hear the positive review and glad you weren't stuck with the car!

Replacement transmissions can be had for far less than what you were quoted. Please keep us in mind if that's ever an avenue you opt to pursue!
Best,
John

The first two pictures are a different car. A newer car with the different front bumper and rear valence along with different wheels. Even a different color black.

Did you let AutoTrader know that the car had major problems not described in the ad? I don't know if they care, but they might make the person removed the ad if he is misrepresenting the car.

Correct. Crappy photos. The actual black is the shade that has gold colored flakes in it. Pictures also show two keys, which I had confirmed originally but after signing the check over, I was told it "broke" at a valet service.

Did not contact Autotrader. Simply wanted to share my experience with Jason, great guy!

Great to hear all the wonderful reviews on Jason and Pannell. I am in ATL and will certainly pay him a visit. As an FYI, Stuart from VelocityAP (VAP) recommended Jason, as he is also a VAP dealer, and as such is intimately familiar with their new dual-clutch setup, which I expect I will be due for shortly.

Jason is awesome. Highly, highly recommended if you are in ATL (or nearby). He quickly (and for a reasonable price) replaced my thermostat and fixed a tire pressure monitor issue I was having. We also talked through future service options. He has Saturday hours, which makes the drive to Alpharetta a little easier.

One more good review for Jason. Had him do an inspection on a car I might pick up and to say that he's extremely knowledgeable is an understatement. I honestly am really bummed we don't have anyone like him in LA, at least as far as I know. His inspection was extremely thorough and he spent another 45 minutes on the phone with me. If I end up buying the car I'll have him do the work before I fly to Atlanta to drive it back.

Consider yourselves extremely lucky if you live close to his shop!
