Transmission Service reviews in Washington DC

    SUBURBAN TRANSMISSIONS
    I talked to Jason about replacing our transmission. He gave me a good price and was honest in his opinion about if we should proceed with the replacement or not. What a breath of fresh air to deal with an owner who wanted to help you rather than take advantage of you.

    Preferred Automotive Associates Inc
    My experience at Preferred Automotive was fantastic. Not only was the team friendly and responsive, they were able to clearly explain to me everything they found wrong with my vehicle and give me advice on pursuing my dealership for warranty issues. They followed up the next day, making sure the dealership wasn't giving me a hard time or false information. They even offered to talk to the service manager at the dealership as my "fake dad" in order to ensure I was not being taken advantage of! Their level of customer service is beyond anything I've every experienced and I'm so grateful for their help! I will be recommending their shop to everyone I know with full confidence.

    EPR Automotive
    I have trusted Eric with my car for the past 4 years. He has never recommended service I did not need and frequently found problems I was unaware of. This time he heard the alternator overworking and found the battery was only holding 1/2 the charge it should have. Alternator is ok, the battery (I looked it up - over 6 years old) was due for replacement. To troubleshoot the shifting problem I described, after finding the transmission fluid level was full as it should be, he drove the car to feel/hear for himself what I was describing and how it was shifting gears. He noticed a series of hesitations that I had not, checked the plug leads, and found they were as old as the car ( 13 years old). Although they looked fine, they were the cause of the shifting problem, not the transmission. So all I needed was a tune up - new spark plugs and leads - not a new transmission. As for the battery catch - that saved me from probably getting stuck at work 25 miles from home with a dead battery because there was no warning for me that the battery was at end-of-life. Eric is the most honest car mechanic I have ever dealt with. He talks to me (76 year-old woman) with respect for my intelligence, shows me what I need to see when the car is on the lift, advises solutions that make sense financially for me, depending on how long I plan to keep the car. I will never take my car anywhere else.

    PRECISION AUTO
    Exceptional service; excellent reporting on issues with the car (including pictures); a bit on the pricey side ($50 for a regular oil change?). My services were extensive and I feel I received excellent diagnosis and service with the BEST warranty in the business! Highly recommend

    County Transmissions Inc.
    County Transmission is the only shop that I will go to when I have transmission problems. Another shop had replaced the transmission in my Acura TL, but I was still having problems with the transmission, and they would not take any further actions. I brought my TL to Hampton, who did a thorough inspection, and showed me why I was still having problems - the other shop only did a "partial" replacement. Hampton was able to complete the job in only 3 days, and my TL was running as good as new. I was also able to obtain a 3 year warranty on the transmission, which closed the deal when I was ready to sell the TL. Last month, when my Cadillac Deville started shifting rough, I brought it to Hampton, and within one day he diagnosed the problem, repaired the problem, and my Caddy is running smooth again! I cannot recommend County Transmission highly enough! I trust them completely with my vehicles!

    Yates Automotive Inc
    For the past two years I have been taking my Jeep to Yates Automotive. I took the truck in for its 120,000 mile maintenance and the service I received was incredible. The front desk team is very friendly and professional, but the best part of my experience was Mike V., the mechanic who worked on my car. I had a long list of services (a dozen) that I needed to have done, from an oil change, transmission flush, replacing the serpentine belt, replacing the tires, a complete detailing, and a bunch of other maintenance items. When I picked up the car, I noted that several services on my repair order had not been done. I was a little miffed. They didn’t do the engine flush; replace two transmission filters; and replace the radiator hoses! I spoke with Mike and he told me that because I have always used synthetic oil, it was a waste of time to do an engine flush--the engine is so clean that if we opened it up, it would look like a new engine (an excellent reason to use synthetic oil!). The T-Tech transmission flush equipment they use literally washes the inside of the transmission, it's not just a drain and fill service they provide. The two filters I asked to have removed are metal screens, not filters with some kind of element. Because the T-Tech service does such a thorough good job, those screen were well cleaned. Mike told me that opening a transmission to get to the filters means breaking the gasket, and when the gasket is replaced, it doesn't always seal as well as hoped. If it isn't leaking after 120,000 miles, he highly recommended not touching it. Finally, the radiator hoses I wanted replaced had been replaced when the radiator was replaced several months ago and didn't need to be replaced. I had forgotten! Mike and the team could have charged me for the those services, and I would have been very happy, but not as happy as I was when Mike educated me and saved me a bunch of money. My Jeep is 12 years old, and it gets compliments from everyone on how good it looks and how well maintained it is. I give my enthusiastic thanks to Yates Automotive for saving me money on unnecessary services and keeping my Jeep running so well that I don't have to buy a new one! That is saving me tens of thousands of dollars every year!

    They took the car immediately and I had it back the next day. They found a few other maintenance items to be performed. Could not have been happier with work performed and everything they did. Class A work.

    HERNDON RESTON TRANSMISSION
    They saved me a ton of money. The dealer had recommended a new transmission. These guys carefully checked and determined what the problem was and fixed it quickly. Plus, they were there to answer my many phone calls and walked me through the process.

    AutoScandia Automotive Services
    I could not be happier with the service I received from AutoScandia. It is not the easiest place to reach from where I live in McLean but it is worth it and I will do it again. It is very rare to find an auto service facility that works as hard on customer relations as they do on the technical aspects of their business but these guys are good. I had a major problem that led to a rebuild of my Volvo S80 transmission and I am very pleased with the result. AutoScandia were very fair with pricing as well so I recommend them to anyone who is looking for honest, conscientious and competent auto service on European cars. I have had both my cars serviced there and will always go back to them now.
