    Cottman Transmission and Total Auto Care
    I went and got estimates at three different transmission shops and Cottman came in nearly $800 less than the nearest competitor and none of them inspected the U-joints. Had it not been for Angie's List we we would have been soaked for an additional $1200 or so. Cottman's staff were professional, accurate and timely. We won't have anyone touch our vehicles transmission but them!

    Cottman Transmission and Total Auto Care
    They did a wonderful job fixing my transmission seals that were leaking between transmission and transfer case. Even better than I would have done myself. They even cleaned a lot of the transmission oil that had leaked on the underside of my pickup. They were great when my son delivered the truck a few minutes late for the appointment and were very punctual when I went to pick it up the next day. They are so reasonably priced. I was think it would be a $400.00 + - cost but was $260. Id refer everyone to them. They did not try to sell me something I didn't need. They will get all my business in the future.

    Knudson Transmission Service
    My son's transmission died as he was driving from Ames to Des Moines. The first service station he made it to gave us an estimate of $3,300. A Knudson Transmission representative said it would cost $2,300 to $2,500. They towed the car for free, and the final bill was $2,500. I was very happy with the professionalism of Knudson Transmission, especially since I am in Illinois and this was a long-distance transaction.

    When I make an appointment I wait all day till they perform the service.  I get there at my point of time and they get me in. They get the work done quickly.  I would use them again in the future.

    Shade Tree Auto
    I'd never used Shade Tree before. Clint was recommended to me by a coworker. Since it was close to work, I stopped at the shop over lunch without calling ahead. The front desk displayed a very prominent sign saying there would be a $65 diagnostic charge for any repair work. Matt and Clint explained that this was a flat charge covering the diagnosis of the complaint (malfunctioning transmission in my case) plus checking for other potential problems or maintenance needs. I briefly described my transmission problem and asked what it sounded like. They said it could be a broken or bent linkage, but I'd have to leave it or bring it back and pay the diagnostic charge. I said I'd think about it. As I was leaving, they asked if I needed a push back out of the parking space. Nice guys! And frankly, I was impressed that they immediately made that connection from my original brief mention of not having the reverse gear. When they came out to the car, I guess Clint figured he might as well take a minute to see/feel first hand what was going on. Within two minutes, he had opened the hood and found the detached bracket. At the time, he thought the shifter cable had broken and that's what allowed the bracket to come loose. So they called me that afternoon with an estimate of $338 to replace the shifter cables, including a $32 diagnostic charge. After I dropped off the car a few days later (had to wait for parts), Clint called and said they discovered the cables (the aforementioned parts ;-))were fine and they were able to just weld the two parts of the bracket together, saving me $188. When I picked up the car, Clint didn't mention any other problems or recommendations. When I asked, he said there was nothing obvious and they test drove the car and it was running great. Clint and Matt were very nice and seemed very competent and honest. Based on this first experience with them, I would not expect the stereotypical "hard-sell"/"up-sell"/scare tactics that you get at so many shops. I based my "B" grade for price on this repair plus an estimate I requested for replacing the timing belt. The facility, including what I could see of the shop, was very clean with a comfortable, well-lit waiting area.

    Cottman Transmission and Total Auto Care
    Even though it was a small job, Dennis worked me in quickly and finished in time to let me pick up the car the same day. Cottman has a good, experienced welder that did a great job for a very reasonable charge. I have always been quite satisfied with a great variety of work done at Cottman's through the years and will continue to use them! Bill

    Knudson Transmission Service
    Knudson guys where great. I called them and explained I was tacking my truck on a trip and wanted to make sure it was going to be ok, they got me in the next day. when I got to the shop they got to my truck rite away, I had a few concernes about my truck and work I just had done at a local ford dealership two days before. I explained that I had a vibration coming from under the truck and that the ford dealership told me the vibration was coused by cupped tires and that I paid the dealer to replace the bad tires but I still had a vibration under my truck after paying the ford dealer over 400.00 in shop labor and tires. Knudsons took my truck for a test ride with me so I could explain what noise was bothersome to me. Knudson listen to every concern I had and when we got back to the shop they put it in one of the shop bays rite away and started working on it. I was told it would take a good half day for them to get all the work done on it, I wanted the vibration checked out and have all the fluids changed. I left and about 20 min after I left Knudson called me to let me know the vibration was caused because of a bad u-joint in the drive shaft and not because of cupped tires like the dealership told me and Knudsons went as far as to provide me the proof to take back to the ford dealership to get some of my money returned for services I didnt need. Knudsons not only went above but beyond what I expected, there price was just as they had told me and the work was done on time as well. I cant say enough about Knudson and would recommend them to anyone that wants their vehicle fixed rite the first time and at the price your told.
