The transmission in my 14 year old Dodge Caravan was acting up so I located Catonsville Engine and Repair on Car Talk's Mechanics Files database. Due to the age of the car (112,000 miles) they recommended that I replace the transmission with a rebuilt unit. Their price ($2280) was about $700 cheaper than another estimate I had been given. Everyone I spoke with seemed competent and honest and I would definitely recommend them. Thanks Mechanics Files!

I live one block down from the shop and took my car there out of convenience when I first moved to Catonsville. Jim fixed my car quickly, honestly, and for a great price. We will not take our cars anywhere else. Recently, my old Buick's brake system gave out on me. When I got the car to the shop, they examined it (for free) and declared it dead (the frame was rusted through as well). They offered to fix it, but said it would be cheaper to buy another used car. They even held it in their lot for free until I bought a new used car and had the tags transferred. They also offered to strip the car of sellable parts for me and dispose of the remains of the Buick as well. When I was buying my new car, they also looked it over for free to make sure I wasn't buying a lemon. These guys are honest, reliable, hardworking people who we trust completely with the care and feeding of our cars.

WRITTEN BY A GOVERNMENT BUSINESS PRACTICES INVESTIGATOR The areas left blank did not apply or I was not able to tell. Jim Tony, the owner, and his son, Jon, run the shop. Jim came very highly reccommended to me by a friend (who is a master mechanic) who services our fleet of government cars. I do most minor repairs to my two family cars myself, and Jim and his guys do the rest. I know my way around an engine, and do occasional engine research, and I have found them to be right on every problem. I will not take my cars anywhere else. Jim takes all the time necessary to explain everything, and has reccommended against some things which he found to be unnecessary. And, I have checked the shop out with all of the local and state regulatory agencies, finding NOTHING bad about it.

Jim came across very knowledgable and friendly, obviously enjoys what he does. Work was done on time at about the price I expected. Will be my first choice for other repairs

I only have had a few car experiences with Jim Tony but he appears to be a competent mechanic of the old school (in business for 30 years in the same area). His diagnosis of our old car was free. I tried to pay him a couple of times but no luck. His shop is tucked away down a driveway off Edmondson Ave. (6159 C Edmondson Ave.) The 23 Rolling Road bus stops just near his shop. He takes the time to explain the problem and did not suggest or do unnecessary work (like a tune up or a valve job) for a problem which those would not fix.

When our company minivan would no longer use any gear but first and the speedometer would only read 0 we took it to a local Firestone who replaced the speed sensor twice with no luck. They sent it to a transmission shop that told us that it needed a complete transmission rebuild but did offer to buy it from us for $600.00. I found Jim's shop on the Mechan-X Files, we brought the van and by that afternoon they had diagnosed the problem as a chafed wire coming through the fire wall, the downside it fried the computer and he would not get the part until the next day. Next day truck was ready $298 dollars just as he said.

The folks here are terrific. I had an appointment for fluid changes, they get me in the shop on time and finished earlier then they promised. They recommended some other work (brakes) but my brakes were covered under a warranty. No hard sell but they did give me an estimate.

I can't recommend these guys enough. They're the real deal: honest, competent, covered in grease and net-savvy. I took my car in yesterday and, to diagnose the problem, they did everything from sniffing the tailpipes to running diagnostics to hitting up Google. They always take the time to explain what's going on with my car, they answer all of my questions to the best extent of my ability to understand car speak, and if anything they undercharge. Great, great shop!

Catonsville Transmission was very fair and honest every time I have done business with them. They have very skilled tech's and have a great office staff. They have even gone out of their way to give me a ride to work when I dropped my car off for the day. They fix any problem the first time and I have never had to take it back for the same problem. They are very fair with all prices as well. But most of all, I feel safe driving my car knowing that they have serviced it and done a great job. I recommed them to everyone I know.
