"Eagles Transmission told me my car would be hooked up to there computer for dionostic test to be performed and that is not what has happened. Instead they informed me that they drove my car all day and there was nothing wrong with it. That infact the checked my transmission fluid and that it was brown and low nut that was ok and normal. But the light on my dashboard is still on and my car is still acting up. That is not normal for a car that I just got 7 months ago. they also demanded a $50 diagnostic that they did not perform.

"After suspecting transmission problems and taking it to my car's dealer to be checked out, I was told that the transmission would need to be worked on, and the Honda dealer quoted me a price around $4000. This seemed pretty steep to me, so I took it to Eagle. It turns out that the transmission was fine, but the "catch" I was feeling was due to a broken engine block, which they fixed for about $500. Everyone at Eagle was very nice and professional. I would definitely trust them to do honest, quality work. My car is running fine now.

"I want to take this opportunity to talk about a positive experience I had with the management of

on Manchaca. My husband and I own a 2004 Lincoln Aviator SUV. It has been very dependable and we made sure it was maintained on schedule over the years. Recently, the transmission started slipping, so we took it to the dealership for servicing and repairs. The dealer was unable to fix the problems even after several different attempts and $1100 in repairs. We were on the verge of buying a new car, when I decided to look on Angie’s List to see if there were any recommendations regarding transmission repair experts. Angie’s List indicated that
Austin Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
on Manchaca had an excellent reputation. I gave them a call and spoke with
Austin Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
and described the issue. He promised they would find the cause of our problems. They were able to re-create the transmission slippage problems I was having and determined that the transmission cable had broken which was causing the sporadic slippage! Our car drives like a new car now. From this point forward anytime we have a transmission issue we intend to use
Austin Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
and recommend that our friends do so as well. It is absolutely wonderful to find that this kind of expertise and commitment to customer service still exists. We can’t say enough good things about these people.

"11/3/12 Took it in and they determined it was in need of an overhaul. Water had entered the transmission. They overhauled the transmission and made one of the radiators just for the transmission. Transmission had failed on the road and would only drive in low. Transmission fluid was pink. I have a Ford ranger truck that had a 2ndary radiator. So they made the cooling of the transmission separate from any water filled radiator. This would prevent water from getting to my radiator as it had before but the transmission would still have a cooling method. They kept me informed of the progress and delivered it repaired very quickly. The price was as estimated which was cheaper than other near by locations that I checked on."

"The initial work was completed on time. However, the same evening I picked up my vehicle, the check engine light came on. I returned the vehicle the next business day and was told they must have forgotten to reset the computer memory. They reset the computer but, the next day the check engine light came on again and I could smell transmission fluid overheating.

I returned the vehicle and, upon inspection, they found a faulty O-ring. That item was replaced and the transmission has been working fine with no issues.

While I would have liked to avoid the O-ring issues,
Austin Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
willingly performed all the necessary repairs until the vehicle was working properly (all covered under their warranty). They were professional throughout the process and I would definitely use them again.

"Going down the highway my clutch went out without warning! I'm a bit of a car guy so I did some of the diagnostics myself, but it soon became clear I didn't have all the tools I needed. (Or the knowledge. ; ) I called up
Austin Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
and made an appointment. They are a smaller shop, so sometimes you can't get an appointment immediately. They were going to try and squeeze me in quickly, but I said it wasn't necessary as I had another car to drive. They were able to do the initial diagnostic a day or two early, and the repair was completed right on schedule! They were upfront about the costs and quoted book time. (I have a suspicion that they may have spent more time on it than that since I asked them to do some separate but related things that they didn't charge me separately for.) I had spent time researching the various parts available and decided to with aftermarket parts. They weren't a suppler for the exact ones I wanted, but they allowed me to supply them myself. (Typically there is an upcharge on labor when customer-supplied parts are used, but they worked with me on that since they didn't carry the parts I wanted, it was a larger job, there were some parts they supplied, etc.) The part they did supply cost way less than the dealer, and 10-15% more than the cheapest places online that I found. They have bee very competitive on of the incidental items I have purchased from them in the past (filters, 5 liters of oil, etc.); sometimes they are even cheaper than the online vendor I typically use! They didn't try to push unneeded things along with the replacement. In fact, they advised that some of the parts I wanted replaced still looked to be in good working order and could go back in. (I wanted them replaced because my research found the originals had relatively high failure rates and everything was already torn apart so it would be much cheaper to replace them now than if they failed later.) Overall, I was much more involved with this repair than I'd assume 'normal' people are. But they are more of a specialty performance shop rather than a general mechanic, so I'm sure their typical customer is similar to me--if not more knowledgeable/involved. My, perhaps misguided, feeling is that everybody that works at a performance or "tuning" shop are going to be enthusiasts and more likely to live their work rather than just come for a pay check. Therefore providing a higher level of care and skill to the work they do. Going into the repair I felt like I was going to pay a bit of a premium to have this shop work on my car. After it was all said and done I felt like I got a great deal on the work they did and it might have turned out to be cheaper than it would have been at a standard Audi or German car specialist shop. I've only had the car back for a copule days, but so far everything seems great and I haven't found any problems!"

"My mother's car overheated west of Dripping Springs on her way to visit my family in
Austin Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
. She got her car to
Austin Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
and asked for them to take a look at it on the next business day. The shop said she needed a new thermostat & housing, fan assembly, hoses & manifold set. She didn't want to tow the car for a second opinion and this seemed a totally reasonable repair, so she agreed. Two days later, she picked up the car, paid the $1,007, and on her way back home, it overheated... again. The garage came and towed the car back to their shop. Next day, they indicated that the problem was REALLY a blown head-gasket but couldn't be too sure until it was machined. Estimate was minimum of $1,500 for machining. (This is on top of already paying for the thermostat, new housing, fan assembly, hoses, and manifold set.) We had the car towed to where I take my car for maintenance (Southwest Automotive) and the root cause is that the water pump is cracked. NOTHING about a blown head gasket, cracked engine block, etc. I would be extraordinarily reluctant to even remotely recommend them to anyone even if they are stuck out of town. I feel that they took advantage of someone stranded out of town."

"Check transmission light came on in 2001 Honda Passport which requires some disassembly to assess. Auto service could not determine cause & sent to Eagle. Within 4 hours Eagle checked transmission & determined no cause for light. Besides not being without work vehicle for more than a day, Eagle did not charge for the diagnosis & advised me what to do if it comes back on. This is very good customer service & relations. I would not hesitate to bring my vehicles (3) for service."

"I took my vehicle to
Austin Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
who I heard about through word or mouth. I couldn't believe he wasn't on Angie's List. He has a reputation for being very honest, skilled and fair with his prices, and also has excellent customer service. I called in the morning and figured I would have to wait a few days, but he worked me in for that day and finished by the afternoon. I had started using a quickie oil change service closer to our house since we had moved, but
Austin Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
showed me a variety of things they had neglected to tell us about or tend to that were pretty significant. I was lucky nothing else major happened since many things were dirty, old, corroding and leaking that should have been changed long ago.
Austin Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
was great to show me every single thing that he saw was a problem before he did any work, and then afterward showed me some of the damage as well. He is really great at educating you if you want to understand more about your vehicle and what's gone wrong, I really appreciate that about him. His invoice was well itemized so I could easily see how much each item/labor for it cost. His estimate before the work was right on. He also offered to only do partial work on it if I couldn't afford it, and didn't push me to pay more than I was able.

"Took a 2000 AWD Explorer in after periodically feeling like I was driving over
Austin Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
strips. I wasn't able to describe the problem or how to reproduce it very well, though, and I didn't insist on going on the initial drive with the mechanic. In the process of trying to find what I was talking about, he found that my front differential was chewing up the end of the axle and needed to be rebuilt. Upon getting the car back, I was able to trigger the "shudder" again and when I got back to
Austin Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
the mechanic jumped right in with me to see what I was talking about. Fortunately I was able to get the shudder to happen again and he knew immediately that it was coming from in the transmission. When we got back,
Austin Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
gave me a very reasonable estimate for rebuilding the transmission and discounted down to that $ amount when the actual work came to a little more. So, yes, I did pay for both repairs when I was expecting one, but the prices were very reasonable, the repairs needed to be performed and they were great folks to work with. The only thing I would do differently would be to insist on going on the initial test drive since the main shudder issue was hard to reproduce and I knew I wasn't describing it very well to them.
