I had just moved back to the area and the transmission on dodge went out ( a large understatement ) they called me at each turn and offered several options and the ups and downs of each. They were very courteous and explained the job of each component that had to be replaced. They talked to me about the job of my truck and explained why I needed or did not need rebuilt or new parts. Being female I have a on going distrust of mechanics and they broke through that and even help point me to honest people in the area. By the way I said no answer on response to screwing things up because they did not but they did say to call if I thought anything at all was wrong and they would look at it at once.

I had transmission problems on a 2000 Impala. Ryan drove the vehicle with me, explained the problem, the options and quoted a fair price. The transmission has worked fine and they also fixed an oil leak and installed a trans cooler at a fair price. They encourage followup check ups. Recently, I heard a noice on accelleration and thought it was the transmission. Took it to them and Ryan drove it. He determined it was the power steering and put some fluid in it and it solved the problem. I was embarassed that I had never checked the fluid in 160,000 miles. (The resevoir is in a hard to get at place behind the engine.) He didn't want any money for his time or effort but I have him some anyway! I would recommend them to anyone.

I had a clutch go out and found this shop by looking at reviews on this site. I'm not disappointed that I did! I called 3 places, including a stealership. Two of the 3 said, well, we can't really give you a quote to fix that till we look, but we guess maybe $1,200-1,300. First Gear gave me a quote to the penny, much less than $1,200 by the way. Of course, they said if they found anything else, they would let me know. They did find something by the way, and it cost me a whopping additional $7. Hope to not have problems again, but if I do, that's where I'm going.
