My father was a garage mechanic (in private practice) for a number of years. He always referred all of his transmissions to Ron (most of the time Dad would take them out and take them to Ron for a rebuild.) I have a Widco rebuilt in my 1985 GMC pickup. It's been there for 6 years without a problem. Ron has always been straightforward with his customers. He tells them when something can or cannot be fixed, and is smart enough to tell someone if he is out of his league, which is not very often. I recently got a quote for a rebuilt transmission (installed) for my minivan. He quoted a price of $895, and all of the places I called in my town quoted $1250-$1295. My only regrets in regards to Ron Widing are that I moved to a town 5 and 1/2 hours away from Ron's shop. I would have no second thoughts about taking any vehicle with transmission problems to Widco; you'll always get a fair shake.

Walt is especially good. I drove in with an unknown problem on my dodge van and he had it fixed within 15 minutes and did not want anything since the repair was fairly simple. I was prepared for anything in the way of a a transmission replacement or repair, but i left with a minor cleaning of the linkage mechanism to the carburator. Honest people.
