I brought my ’98 Ford Contour to Clint after I had went to another shop, where I paid $100 for a diagnostic fee and was told to junk it, or go to Carmax. Nice advice, huh? Feeling so discouraged, I sought to family to help me find another place that wouldn’t be so mindless to people who are in a really bad situation with a problem like this (transmission failure). I just bought the car in August and have the entire repair history (family car)! I wanted more opinions from trustworthy shops to see what would the best route be to handle this. I was certainly not entertained at the thought of financing. Mr Transmission was the last place I took my car to and here’s why.
The guys at Mr Transmission, Clint and I believe it was Ray, are wonderful.
They’re very knowledgeable, honest and will cut straight to the root with you…more importantly, their repair, parts & labor costs are very reasonable also.
Clint diagnosed my car for free in less than 30 minutes and happened to have a used transmission from the same car unclaimed by anyone else. Came from a guy whose engine blew and he didn’t want to fix it. Only 66k miles on it! That was just the first part! I also needed my front rotors & brake pads replaced, and the shop next door to Mr Transmission is owned by their brother, and does mainly maintenance repairs (Clint’s shop is for exactly what the name proclaims). Clint had them do my brakes & rotors, and give me an online coupon for it as well. I thought, how awesome is that, THEY (the shop guys) gave me the coupon! I didn’t have any clue about it!
I dropped my car off Thursday morning and picked it up Friday afternoon when I was off work. A replaced transmission (with warranty at no add’l cost), new brakes & rotors all new trans fluid and the like, my total bill was $1,600 and some change. Clint is also a double-check kinda guy. He said to bring the car back in 7-10 days and he’ll take it for a drive, check everything they did, fluids, etc… and make sure everything is going smoothly. Anything needing fixed because of their work, they’d do. I did just that, and everything is as it should be. I’m sure I can get another 3 maybe even 4 years out of the car. I am so grateful I found these guys, they definitely earn their 5 stars!
You want a trustworthy shop, go to Mr Transmission!
Thank you so much guys!
