    Fountain Transmission Specialists
    Everybody knows about Fountain Transmission Specialists Inc in town. If you ask anybody in town they say they are the best and they absolutely are. I had work done by them and everybody, when I had the problem arise, said go to Fountain Transmission and they were right. They were absolutely right. That guy is absolutely fantastic. What I have found with him is that you can walk in and he'd just go out and turn on the car and listen to it and tell you exactly what was wrong with the transmission. He's incredible. I guess all the people with the big fancy race cars, he's the guy they go to. I wrote a letter to this other company, what was then _Ford-Lincoln-Mercury. That company has been bought out by another one. I had to take it to them because I had got this part, a used front differential for my '95 Ford Explorer. I got that at a dealership, Charles Gabus Ford in Des Moine in mid-December. They told me when I got that, when you get back to Iowa City you should have your local dealer check it. So that guy checked it and there was still this weird sound coming from the transmission, so they said to me, oh the front differential that was put in by this dealership in Des Moine was no good. So they took it out and luckily, for some reason, I asked to have the part after they took it out and replaced it and charged me again for another used differential. There was still oil dripping and the noise I think was still there. At that point, I knew to go to Fountain Transmission because I've already dealt with him years before and everybody said he was the guy. I went to him and he told me right away that there was a problem with the one that the local dealership had put in. He looked at the differential that they had taken out and they had said was no good and he said it's absolutely fine. I wrote a letter to the local company and said this is the case and all of these repairs cost me an additional $600 and something dollars and he sent me a check back no questions asked. I know why he did that, it was because I said, I took my vehicle to Fountain Transmission and I took this differential that you took out and Fountain Transmission says that differential was fine and that wasn't the problem. And Boom, there was no questions asked and I got a check in the mail and I know that was because of Fountain Transmissions name. He didn't charge me anything, he looked at that differential and told me it was just fine, never charged me a cent and that's typical of him. He charges very fairly, very modestly I think by comparison to other places, and the work he does is impeccable.

    B & L Transmission Inc.
    We called and they got our vehicle in right away.  I called other places for estimates and they were the cheapest.  Joe did a great job explaining everything to us and got it done quick.  He went above and beyond out expectations.  Even told me of another thing that will need to be worked on when I had time.  It wasn't needed right away but just wanted me to know it will be needing to be changed in the future.  No pressure, just straight talk and explanation why, even showed the bad part and a new one.

    John's Automotive
    The mechanics at John's Automotive Svc are good. They diagnosed the problem and it turned out the cars battery was arching and would not connect. The other problem was that the dash lights came on when I put the glaze on during the day on so they traced that down to a defective tail light. I don't know how they got there but it took them only half hour to figure it out. The other big thing about them is that they are honest and they don't try to push things on me which I don't need. Their prices are competitive. They are not cheap but their work is good and the big thing with me is honesty.

    Hubbell's Auto Repair Inc
    I went to Hubbell's because my transmission was acting up. I was overdue on a transmission fluid and filter replacement and Hubbell's was the best price that I was able to find. The Check Engine light was also coming on. I explained the issue throughly to the guy at the desk. The car would stay in 1st gear until the engine heated up, then the automatic transmission would basically act as normal. He said he would pass that along to the mechanic and have him look at the transmission. They called and told me that the Check Engine light was coming on because a part had worn out. I authorized a replacement. When I picked up the car, the guy at the desk said that the mechanic had taken it out for a test drive and that everything was fine. To my surprise, the transmission was not acting any differently and the Check Engine light came back on before I got back home. I called and told them that the transmission was acting the same...and that I doubted the mechanic had taken it for a drive as they would have surely noticed. He apologized and offered to take another look at it when I was available to take it back. I never took it back, I dealt with it as-is for a month and sold it. I wouldn't take another vehicle to them again. As far as responsiveness to calls, professionalism, and price, they are decent...but their work is certainly suspect.

    Terrible customer service. Car was started on in May and finished in August. I was quoted $785 for rebuild but total ended up at $1792. Tore transmission out and then claimed it needed all new parts which were to be ordered. Waited all summer for parts to get in. Once car was finished It leaked fluid and still slipped and shifted slow when cold. Also owner told me about the front brakes needing repair as they were grinding loudly. I found the hub spindle nuts on both front axles very loose and close to the spindle nut falling off it was unscrewed so far. I repaired the pads and rotors myself and tighted up the spindles. I went back to discuss this with owner and he denied they ever touched the spindle nuts even though they had to remove them to pull out axle shafts to remove the transmission. He agreed to repair the transmission and reimburse me for the parts to the brakes. They then correctly repaired the trans. but when picking up they tell me they hve a problem with the idle being too high and it may need a new motor control (computer). When I picked it up the next day he tells me that they found a electrical connection next to the throttle that had a missing part. They had lost the throttle position sensor and claimed it was not there before they worked on it. I had had the motor tuned up 2 weeks before transmission went bad so I know that the sensor WAS there before they worked on it. CROOKS !! Do not trust these people.
