I took my Jeep wrangler in to fix a small oil and transmission fluid leak. After Downtown worked on my Jeep, the transmission fluid leak worsened from one or two drops to huge puddle that ran the length of the car down the garage. I returned 3 additional times to fix the leak without success. Had to take jeep to other garage to fix.

I went in convinced I had a transmission problem. Was actually ready to have the tranny rebuilt but the owner of the shop told me it was just a simple problem that an engine mechanic could fix. And we was not only right but the repair only cost a few hundred dollars. Many other shops would have just rebuilt a perfectly working transmission since most of us non mechanically able people would not kn...

Our 1991 Mercedes 560 SEC was towed to Downtown Transmissions and Ross Kempes handled everything for us. He was substantially less money for a transmission plus installation then anyone near us. Finished the job quickly and the car has been cruising along since. Great people to have service your automobiles.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BUSINESS!!!  They were a lifesaver.  I had my van towed to a repair shop that I had been to a few times and they gave me an estimate for $1800 - $2000 for my transmission.  Well, I just didn't have it so I was planning on just towing it back home when my dad said, "didn't you just join Angie's list? Why don't you see if they have any tranmission places.  So, I did!!!  It tu...

The service was performed on time, and at a reasonable cost.  The two owners were professional as were their staff.  After a day of use, a leak around the filter gasket was detected.  The leak was corrected by tightening bolts around the filter gasket.  All is well since then.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Leaks were repaired in the transmission of a 25 year old Dodge SUV.  Inspection was made, and adjustments were performed.  Fluid and filter were replaced.

I was a little paranoid about my Camry. It felt like there were times when it might have slipped a gear while I was driving at low speed, but it was hard to tell and I'm no mechanic. I just know shifting problem=transmission=an expensive fix. Ross at Downtown Transmissions took it in without an appointment, drove it around and scanned it right away. He came back and said he couldn't find anything ...
