They told me I needed a new transmission, which is what my local mechanic said. They charged me a fair price ($1500) for a new transmission, fixed it in a timely manner, treated me with respect and I have had no problems since. As a single lady in the deep South, I would have picked up on any patronizing attitudes, but there were none. These guys are great.

My daughter is a freshman at Savannah College of Art and Design. She drives a 2002 Ford Focus. This past January she called me and told me that her engine was revving up, but the car was slowing down. This was happening at about 25 MPH. Being four hours drive away, I couldn't do much troubleshooting, so I checked your Car Talk web site and found a transmission shop close to SCAD. Westside Transmission was listed, and when I contacted them, they were very understanding and offered to fetch the car and diagnose the problem. They said that if the tranny was the problem it didn't automatically mean overhaul, as that particular tranny has solenoids that have a bad reputation. Stevie's "don't hold me to it estimate" was $250. We used AAA to tow the car on Friday, and, on Monday, they called me here and said the car was ready and that the solenoid was in fact the culprit. My daughter caught a ride with a friend, paid the $250, and with a month now past, says that it hasn't acted up again. My experience with transmissions is that if you take a car with over 100k miles to the transmission shop, it WILL need to be overhauled. That wasn't the case this time as this disadvantaged customer's situation was rewarded with honesty, courtesy and willingness to do whatever they could to help. Thank you Car Talk from Dad and Mom (Mount Holly, NC)
