rebuilt my automatic transmission on my 2002 Subaru
in late March 2015. The transmission was significantly slipping" intermittently and needed to be rebuilt. The vehicle did need to stay in shop longer than estimated. Only major issue with that was I was counting on car to drive over Easter weekend and was told late Friday afternoon that car did not pass final inspection and I would get car the following Monday or Tuesday latest. Car was ready early next week as promised. The car drove and shifted like a new car. Within a day or two the car threw a check engine light and it was a sensor that had likely been damaged while working on car. I took car back to
and they confirmed problem and replaced damaged sensor free of charge. About a month later I was driving my vehicle and smoke started pouring out from under the hood and the transmission went out completely. A transmission pressure line let go and sprayed transmission fluid everywhere in the engine compartment and under carriage. The car was a total mess inside engine compartment, under and outside the car. I contacted
and they promptly sent a truck out to pick up vehicle. I was called by end of day to let me know the hose was replaced and the car engine compartment was cleaned and ready to go. When I brought the car home it ran fine, but smelled terrible in vehicle cabin due to excessive transmission fluid burning off. I thoroughly washed my car exterior, and power washed and de-greased wheel wells, wheels, brakes, and under carriage the best I could. Even then the car still smelled terrible every time it was run due to residual transmission fluid burning off. Plus transmission fluid continued dripping onto my driveway from various areas on the under carriage of car.
did power wash the engine compartment a second time. I wish they could have sent me to someone that could have done a much more thorough cleaning of the engine compartment and undercarriage. The burn off smell continued for well over a month afterward. I either started getting used to it, or it finally ran its course or a combination of the two. However, each time I had to come in, the front desk people and service people I talked to were friendly, helpful and polite. They always tried to resolve the issues. While my own personal experience was not the best it could have been, I feel
did their best to fix my transmission and address related issues as they came up. I am going to take the car in for a follow up this month to make sure everything is still OK. I will definitely update this review, if any other issues come up. Overall I liked the people I dealt with at
. While my experience was not the best it could have been,
did a good job to make it right with me. It is for that reason; I would recommend them to anyone looking at having a transmission rebuilt.

"While making one of many return trips to my hometown of Detroit, my 1993 Cadillac started leaking transmission fluids. Due to the fact I have had the car for only" a month and the fact that she has only been driven about 2100 miles a year for 22 years, this problem was expected. The transmission was going to be inspected back home in
, NC upon my return - however, the leak forced the issue. Proceeded to Angie's list to find a rated Transmission shop on the east side of the Metro area close to where I was visiting.
appeared, were called, looked at the car immediately and diagnosed the issue.
, the man I dealt with was forthright and blunt about the issue. His 30+ years of experience convinced me to not go for the easy fix, which was to simply replace the front seal on the transmission. He noted to me the amount of debris in the trans
as well as the fact that the transmission was most likely not serviced during the life of the vehicle. I was irritated at first. However, when I calmed down and realized that the full rebuild being suggested would not leave me on the side of the road during any part of my 700 mile journey from the east side of Detroit back to
, I agreed to the full rebuild. To highlight the completeness of the service, the shop would NOT let me take the car back early. They stuck to their procedures and fully tested their work and the vehicle warm and cold. If I had my way - I would have left early - and potentially with issues. Bottom line: These guys are well known throughout the Metro Detroit area and with good reason. They do fantastic work and give you an honest assessment - whether it a pretty picture or not. I will be recommending
Transmissions to all of my co-workers and friends in the Detroit area for all of their transmission needs.

These guys are excellent. They enjoy what they do and he's been doing it all his life. I also understand he has hired one of the best transmission rebuilders in the

I had talked them about having my transmission repaired there and they said that the cost would be $80 for them to look at it. They said they would credit to the work if we had it done. I had called him first asking him questions and we had not committed to bringing it in. My husband decided to go to the junk yard to buy used transmission to put in our van.This is what made the most sense for us financially at the time. One of the sensors inside the used transmission gets stuck off and on. . I talked to the owner's son and he said I could have it towed there if I had an issue. I explained I had another one put in and and I would go back and get my old transmission and have them just work on it and swap it out. The sensor went out again today and I arranged for a tow truck. The owner of
Huntsville Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
called me and said he "wanted nothing to do with you and your mess." He told me to cancel my tow truck. What makes a difference? They still will have to fix my transmission either way it goes! I was willing to pay to have fixed!

I purchased a used truck from Truck Town without any warranty. I
was told that if something needed to be repaired for 30 days they would
take care of it. I explained that my reason for buying the truck was
primarily for pulling a small fishing boat and so the truck
would not get much use. It was verbally agreed that instead of 30 days then the first 2,000 miles would be a fair measure.
several months only a few hundred miles had been driven. During that
period I had problems with the brakes. They would seize and lock when
parked for a week or more. I took it back to Truck Town and they made
some kind of adjustment. The adjustment didn’t work. I took it back
again and this time they repaired a brake part by welding it. That
worked temporarily. Over the next few months the problem again occurred
from time to time, especially when I left the truck for a week or two
with the emergency
brake on.
Then I started having
trouble shifting gears. I talked with Truck Town’s Service Manager
Huntsville Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked

and he thought that servicing the transmission might help. I
agreed and paid a fee of approximately $100. The problem worsened over
the next several months until one day, 50 miles from home, I couldn’t
get it into first gear or reverse and it took significant effort to
force it into second. On the way home I called Truck Town and they told
me to drop it off that night for inspection. The next day the service
department inspected it and couldn’t find anything. They told me to
bring it back when I had the problem actually occurring. The problem
continued intermittently and since I drove it infrequently it took time
for it to get to the point where the problem became constant. In August
last year, I took it in again and was told it needed a new clutch. As
Truck Town’s service department was busy, Mr.
Huntsville Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
arranged to have
the replacement done by

. The work was completed
and I picked up the truck at Truck Town, paying Truck Town for the
entire amount that Mr.

I drove out of the Truck Town’s parking lot I noticed a strange
whirring sound followed by vibration at the end of each shift from gear
to gear. I called Mr.
Huntsville Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
the next day and asked if this was because
the parts were new. He said it could be the case and to drive it a while
and call him back if it didn’t go away. It didn’t go away. The
vibration consistently occurred at a specific engine RPM in every gear
and the truck vibrated significantly at speeds over 55 MPH.
this time the brake problem I described earlier was continuing and I
also discovered that I was losing engine coolant. It seemed that I
needed a second opinion on the brakes and I had lost my confidence in
Truck Town’s service department.
I talked with a local boat
mechanic whom I trusted and he referred me to a truck mechanic in Port
Huntsville Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
. I told him the history with the truck but purposely did not
mention Truck Town or
Huntsville Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
. He conducted a full
inspection of the
Huntsville Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
truck and found that the previous brake repair
had failed due to a faulty weld, and he repaired that.
then found the cause of an engine coolant leak. The issue was with the
screw in fitting where the coolant line enters the engine block which
had apparently been that way when I bought the truck. The fitting had
come loose and in the process also destroyed the screw threads. A new
threaded hole had to be tapped, a difficult and time consuming
procedure, and that fixed that
He test drove the
truck and immediately verified a vibration problem. He initially
couldn’t see anything wrong with the clutch assembly or installation. He
suspected the drive shaft might be the cause and removed it and had it
expertly checked. It was confirmed that it was properly balanced within
factory specifications.
With the transmission and the drive
shaft now removed, he ran the engine on the lift and at exactly the RPM
where vibration had been occurring the vibration repeated. With
everything else eliminated, this meant the vibration had to be caused by
something in the clutch assembly. He concluded it had to be either the
flywheel (the existing one appeared to have been resurfaced but he was
not certain of that) or the pressure plate being out of balance and so
to make sure every variable was addressed he replaced the entire clutch
assembly including a new flywheel with factory OEM parts. The vibration
was eliminated.
To put all of this into perspective, after
all of the problems I’d had, I had ample reasons to get a second opinion
on the clutch vibration. Since I noticed the problem while driving out
of the lot after the clutch replacement it does not seem possible the
truck was test driven by a qualified person from either Truck Town or
Huntsville Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
. The thorough inspection and evaluation by the
other mechanic proved that either the clutch installation and/or the
parts were faulty. Given the circumstances, with the truck essentially
disassembled, having the clutch replaced was the only way to verify it
was at fault. After all other variables were eliminated, replacing the
clutch assembly that was installed by
Huntsville Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
solved the problems.
Both Truck Town and
Huntsville Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked

Transmissions denied responsibility for the vibration problem. They had
Huntsville Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
to do the same thorough evaluation the other mechanic did to
find the problem and they did not do that. It took months…months to get
Huntsville Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
to discuss this with
Huntsville Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
and finally
decide to offer me an “accommodation” of $500 compared to the $1,300 I
had paid. I took them to small claims court and after two hours of
discussions with an arbitrator they both came up with the position that
if I had called when the problem had been discovered by the other
mechanic they would have covered the repair. Given my experiences with
them I have reason to doubt that would have happened.
bottom line is they agree there was a problem, they agree my mechanic
fixed it, and they
Huntsville Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
’t feel like they are accountable for repaying my
repair costs. I took the $500 to end all of this and will sell the truck
to get rid of the bad experience all together.

We took the car in due to a strange vibration. They found the issue to be a motor mount and repaired it. They also pointed out that there was a really bad oil leak that had caused the car to be nearly without oil. They filled up the engine with oil (for no charge) and provided a price to repair the oil leak, but did not pressure us in any way to make that repair. This is my son's car and he didn't have the money to do anything else. They recognized that he was serving in the Air Force and gave him a discount and were very supportive of him and his choice to serve our country. Fast forward a few months and the transmission went out. We brought it back to Builders and they quoted us a price to rebuild the transmission for around $2000. This is my son's car, which has 320,000 miles on it and is only worth $1500 (if we're lucky). So, it wasn't worth it to rebuild. Builders allowed us to leave the car on their property while we tried to find a replacement transmission from a salvage. After about 3 weeks of it being on their property they called us and told us that they found a transmission that was in good condition and would put it in. We had them do it and it's been great ever since. It is now a year later and we haven't had any issues with the replacement transmission or the motor mount. I would recommend Builders to anyone. They went above and beyond the call of duty to help my son get his car back on the road.

First he told me to get the bearings from the dealership (which is good because they're quality products), came back and did the job. Then he tells me they are not under warranty because I purchased the bearings from an outside dealership. The work was good but I didn't appreciate his suggestion which made excluded me from a warranty.

They took apart the transmission and found that it had a crack and due to overuse probably had some internal gears damaged.
Also a vibration I had identified came from a back bearing that was going south very fast.
It took a bit longer, in part because Mf. J.

seems to be a fanatic about checking things out, which makes me happy.
I think they did an excellent job, and the price was very close to the original estimate.
