"I called
and spoke with the person who turned out to be the owner. He is the son of the former owner. Wish I could member his name.
" I think. I gave him the details of the symptoms leading up to what we perceived as a transmission failure. I asked him pointed questions on what procedures would come standard with the swap out and he patiently explained his establishments level of quality commitment. They would put the vehicle up on the lift and confirm the diagnosis. Then they would call me back within 24 hours. I explained that my car was sitting in my driveway with no AAA. They gave me a complimentary tow service . I cannot confirm that this is their standard procedure but I truly did appreciate it. So I receive their phone call and come to find out that the axle had shattered and that my transmission was not the actual issue . Since we had been having 2nd gear clutch pack slippage issues on the automatic tranny for about 2 years we elected to have the business continue with the transmission replacement. They replaced the half shaft basically at parts cost. My wife and I sincerely appreciated that a business would be honest and offer us the option of not proceeding with the transmission replacement. Integrity . 3 business days after that phone call we are told the car is ready. We come down. He shows us the transmission that was pulled. 3 year warranty, one hundred thousand miles and we paid 3300 including taxes out the door for the tranny and torque converter replacement along with the passenger side cv axle and a busted motor mount. Cooler was flushed as is their policy. Rate was 88 per hour at time of service and 8 hours went into service overall. I never felt a lack of confidence with the staff or with their competence. We returned like a week or so afterwards and they did a spot check for any seepage etc. This company exceeded expectations as to punctuality and cost. The warranty itself speaks volumes .And again their honesty and integrity. Worthy of Angie's List! PS they do have a website however Angie's list said that the link I pasted into the first page of this write up had issues.

"We had taken our work vehicle to another transmission shop, lured by the free towing offer. They then told us that it would cost $450 to open up the transmission" just to provide us an estimate. We paid them $70 for the tow and promptly took our vehicle to
, based on his reviews here. The owner took our vehicle for a test drive and told us that the gears were fine but something was wrong so that you had to shift manually. He fixed the problem and told us that it should be fine but of course the transmission was old and would eventually need to be overhauled. These guys understood that we wanted to have a minimum spend option as well as a full option In the end, we took the short term fix just to get back on the road but should anything happen we will definitely take it back to these guys.

The old truck is back on the road and runs like new.
Escondido Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
was great to deal with and gave me several options for repair or replacement. No one likes to pay for big repairs but I think they were honest people to deal with and the price was fair. I had looked at their website and was impressed with the great customer comments.

My 1995 Honda Civic has 179,000 on it and Binh at
Escondido Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
keeps it in top notch running condition. This time I thought something might have been acting up so I brought it in just to be sure. I don't like to take chances on a 20 year old vehicle. Binh looked it over and took it for a test drive and assured me that it had no problems at this time. He wasn't going to charge me anything BUT I insisted that my peace of mind was worth an hour of his time to me. So he charged me for 1 hour, $50. A much better labor rate than most other shops charge. I have been taking my car to him for years now. He always fixes it on time and sometimes for less than the quoted estimate. He is an expert mechanic. I would recommend him to anyone with car troubles.

The vehicle had to be towed into the repair shop. I did not have an appointment, but the shop fit my vehicle into their schedule and I was able to pick it up the next day. The engine and entire underbody was coated with leaking transmission fluid where the line broke off from the radiator. They completed the repairs and completely cleaned the engine and frame. They also did not perform any unnecessary repairs to inflate the bill. Pricing for the parts and labor performed was excellent.

My automatic 1989 corvette lost 3rd and 4th gears (103k miles) - and I wanted to find a place close by for a check-out and possibly a rebuild. I found about 8 places – turns out
Escondido Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
was the closest.















When I bicycled over looking for estimates, the asian owner ‘
Escondido Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
’ provided an honest assessment and a very fair estimate of $1250 plus tax and fluid and extras if needed. I was immediately impressed by his knowledge and experience – he’s been there for over 30 years.















Within a week, they did a complete rebuild including the clutch packs and front bands. He also replaced the rear seal at no extra charge – the entire job with no surprises turned out right on the estimate. He saved the used parts and took time to show me the wear. They provided a 12k/1 year warranty – and to stop by if there are any issues.















I also popped in when the car was up and they let me examine my cars underside – also showing the care they’ve taken in removing the transmission.















I am very pleased with their honest work and great price. They did not charge more simply because of I have a corvette as other places seem to inflate their quotes.















I was surprised that there were so no reviews on angie's list– these guys are great and I hope they stay around for my next rebuild ten years down the road. I definitely recommend them – their experience and honesty are unmatched.

OK, so when you have a serious mechanical malfunction, you hope its not that serious and you hope you don't get ripped off.
When your auto has body damage, you can see it and have a sense of the issue and see results of the repair. Engine and transmission issues...not so measurable...Except when fixed properly, then the vehicle runs properly again...But, was it really a major fix or a
Escondido Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
fix? Typical people just don't know.
I believe that
Escondido Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
fixed my transmission properly and fairly. Why do I think this? Well, I took the time to review my specific issue and what might be the problem(s) and what might be the cost to fix it. Then I read reviews of several service companies in my area. I then selected a few and visited them for a personal interview or Q&A.
Long analysis short....
Escondido Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
representative
Escondido Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
was straight forward and explained how they would perform the diagnosis and what the next steps would be after that, and potential initial diagnosis costs and possible other costs, depending on what may be the problem, and how they go about problem diagnosis. Based on other reviews for this
Escondido Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
location and my personal interaction with Mr.
Escondido Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
, I selected
Escondido Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
to do the initial diagnosis, and then ultimately the repair work.
Unfortunately, my problem was somewhat severe, but I already knew that. The repair cost quoted was within the range that I was already expecting and so I thought the price to be fair.
I just returned a couple of weeks later after driving repaired, to have the work inspected as a follow up, which is part of their service process to ensure that their work has been performed properly. The owner of the Company,
Escondido Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
, was filling in for Mr.
Escondido Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
during this follow up inspection visit.
Escondido Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
was just as professional and considerate as Mr
Escondido Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
, and obviously was a hands on owner who is concerned that his business operates properly. They have several letters of thanks from other customers that are displayed on their waiting area wall. They also seem to be a community oriented business. All of these factors indicate a company that will ensure that their integrity is intact and will treat people as they would want to be treated.
So...I recommend

at this Colleyville Blvd Location and, although I hope I do not have to use them again...I will if the need arises.

Although the website didn't show availability for the tires I needed, there aren't so many Pirelli dealers in Nashville, so I stopped in.
Escondido Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
investigated on their own warehouse inventory system and located the Pirelli P7 touring tires in the size I needed for my Jaguar. The car is 15 years old and has 100K+ miles, so it was time for new spark plugs. I asked for an estimate and was pleasantly surprised ($175). So I requested them and also a throttle-body cleaning ($75).
Escondido Transmission Shops Provider Name Locked
gave me a ride to my office. By mid-afternoon the tires and spark plugs were installed, and with the clean throttle body delivered an incredible 25% improvement in mileage (and a much better ride). Also got a 4-wheel alignment ($79). The service was perfect, the price unbeatable, and the results even better than imagined.
