"This was the most painless major auto repair I can imagine.
, the owner, was very professional and up front with me from start to finish. When he quoted on the phone, he insisted on doing a complete rebuild or nothing at all. ...more He did the job for what he quoted it, even after (no fault of his) encountering unexpected problems resulting in him spending 3x the time he expected. I gave him several obvious opportunities to
the price up and he did not take advantage of them. He would not release the vehicle until he was confident that it was right. I talked to several friends before choosing his shop and with one recommendation and his A+ from the BBB I called him. I checked first with two reputable Chevy dealers who (I thought marginally reasonable due to nationwide warranty) wanted over $1,200 more to rebuild or replace my transmission. SW Gear's warranty is local only, as opposed to that of a dealership, however, for the difference in cost, I accepted the risk. So far I am glad I did. The pickup is shifting smoothly and driving great."

"I called for an appointment.
greeted me and explained what he would do to diagnose the trouble. I received a call within two days and returned to the shop to examine the transmission the other transmission shop allegedly "rebuilt". ...more
showed me all of the components and showed me where some were missing and a crappy repair to the transmission where a bolt was stripped and repaired with epoxy.
Since the transmission case was ruined and not usable, he advised me he would
for a used transmission to rebuild and install. Remember this vehicle is over 30 years old and parts are not always easily available.
found the transmission, disassembled it for inspection and found it was rebuildable. He called me with an estimate and the truck was ready when he told me it would be.
I am very happy with his job and professionalism.
Highly Recommend!!!!! "
