Transmission Service reviews in Van Nuys

    Russ's Transmission Inc
    I have a 1968 Mustang in need of a complete transmission overhaul: leaking from all possible locations...no 3rd gear. This car also had a badly grinding rear end (axle). I needed to find a trustworthy shop to do excellent work. I know a few excellent places on the west side but needed to find transmission services in the valley.  
    First of all, I should mention what kind of consumer I am and this will inform you how I came to choose Russ's Transmission.  I know that a vintage mustang shares many mechanical parts with a lot of other Ford vehicles so I wasn't looking for a vintage/specialty service station and the prices that come with those places.  I am not rich and would rather find a trustworthy shop that does good work.  I will spend a little more for better work and good service. 
    I found Russ's Transmission on Angie's List and called them and got in contact with Mike.  Mike is very friendly and knowledgeable but he's also a good listener and very professional.  He also explained that he does work for the Mustang Club of America.  This is a huge bonus as the reason to join a club like this is to find the best places to service your Mustang.
    Mike called within a day and said he got the transmission going: there was a simple thing that was causing the 3rd gear to not work but he found it and said that I could pick it up at no charge but everything else (leaking and slipping) would still need to be addressed and that it would need a proper overhaul at about $1500.00.  Since my intention from the beginning was to go through the entire transmission,  I had him start work. 
    When work was completed, Mike securely stored the car for me while I was traveling for work. He also washed the car and put in a fresh battery.  I was happy with the work so I had him rebuild the rear end too (Russ's transmission also does rear ends) I wanted to lower the gearing from 2.79:1 to 3.55:1 for better acceleration.  He did a great job and the car runs like it's never run before. 
    Since rear ends are a specialty, I will update my review on the quality of this service after some miles but so far everything performs very well.
    The rear end work cost 1200.00 and included new gears, yoke/U-joints, pilot and axle bearings.  
    All in all, I am happy with the experience.  It's tough to have a good experience with service shops.  Dealing with Mike was a pleasure...I highly recommend this shop for transmission service.

    Leon's Transmission Service Inc.
    It was extremely easy to make an appointment and they were able to take me right away.  It took around 45 minutes for them to make the diagnosis, and two days to replace the transmission.  I liked the customer service, cleanliness, and speediness. I was stunned that they were so polite, well trained and customer-centric. They also got me a great deal on a rental car.

    Russ's Transmission Inc
    called the transmission shop and Cruiz got on the phone and offered to tow in our truck, but we drove it in.  He told me that he would call me the next morning and let me know what was up.  He called as soon as they opened and told me that he had to tear-down the transmission to see exactly how bad it was.  He explained all the other work that it needed. He told me that the cost of the tear-down would be credited with the rebuild if it needed a rebuild.  I approved the tear-down.  He called me that afternoon and told me it was in bad shape.  He told me everything that he could do and that he would give me a call the next day.  To make a long story short, the parts were in on Monday and the truck was finished by Tuesday.  A complete Transmission rebuild in 1.5 days. Plus all of the other things that he needed to do.  Thank you to the entire family at the transmission shop. I recommend them highly.....A+++++++

    AutoAid & Rescue
    I have been satisfied with all service on my 1992 Cutless Sierra Station Wagon for over 16 years. AutoAid & rescue has been a fair and reliable mechanic shop and efficient. This is a combination that is hard to beat. My sta.wag. will soon be a working classic.

    LEON'S TRANSMISSION
    Leon's is the best. They have been in the same location since 1952 and all of the local car dealers use them as well. They are friendly, honest and reliable. They definitely have the best customer service around!

    Classic Car of Sweden
    TONY DOES ALL OUR WORK ON OUR VOLVO. HE SPECIALIZES IN FOREIGN CARS. HE'S FAST AND VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND ALTHOUGH HIS SHOP IS SMALL AND NOT SET UP TO IMPRESS CUSTOMERS, HIS ATTENTION TO THE DETAILS WHEN IT COMES TO FOREIGN CARS MAKES UP FOR THE NOT SO PLUSH SETTING.
