Very HONEST, professional and knowledgeable staff. Extremely good experience with them. Would recommend any transmission problem to these people.

Very, very reputable! Some places I have known might have tried to get me to get a whole new transmission when mine was acting rough two years ago; I've had bad experiences with some shops where they assume women know nothing about cars. However, Terry told me, "Relax! Your transmission is fine. All you need is an input speed sensor." Thus, I paid less than $200 instead of $2000 or more, and the car has been running fine ever since.

These people offered a price nearly $450 less than dealer cost on replacing a torque converter. The estimate was free and confirmed there was no urgency in the repair. The next day they located parts for $200 less. Honest & competent, I don't think I'll need a second opinion if I have another tranny problem.

They are strictly transmissions but fixed something else on my vehicle after I had it towed there in a bit of a panic thinking lack of power to wheels must be transmission failure. It took a little arm twisting on my part - new in town, vehicle was difficult tow, etc. There's an air of competence around the place and a vibe of good business sense. While my vehicle was being loaded off the tow truck, I noticed a large power boat in the yard, so cringed at the thought of pricing, but with a posted labor rate of $85 an hour and 1.5 hours for my job, it seemed quite fair to both of us. The odd thing is the eponymous Terry has written an autobiography and it's lying around the waiting room. It's the oddest thing. It chronicles his life threaded with discovering Jesus and is utterly dull and typical - I drank a lot and didn't really concern myself with the feelings of others around me until I found god. There's a fair number of Christ tchotchkes around the place. As a non-straight atheist, people like this tend to be my enemy because they can't live and let live, but they were competent and indeed kind, so I might go back if I need transmission work.
