As a family-owned business, Tri-City Transmission has been providing complete transmission service and repair in the Phoenix, Arizona, area since 1972. They truly are the transmission experts in Arizona. They repair or replace over 200 transmissions per month, or 2400 transmissions per year. Transmissions are all they do and the do them well.
Dave Riccio, an Arizona native, and co-host of Bumper to Bumper Radio, is the owner of Tri-City Transmission. A self-professed gearhead, he began his career over 20 years ago selling tires and has remained involved and active in the auto repair industry ever since. Dave’s talent with people as well as cars is a business combination that has served him and his clients well.
“What do you mean I don’t need a new transmission? Everyone else says I do!” That is a phrase that is heard around Tri-City Transmission on a regular basis and it’s one of the reasons behind Dave spending time on the radio. He says he goes on the air to get the message out that, “Car owners who are educated about their vehicles can make better decisions about their repair and maintenance,” says Riccio.
The technicians at Tri-City are some of the best in the industry, having been factory trained, and having extensive experience. They are often asked to train other automotive technicians on transmission service and repair.
One of the things that sets Tri-City Transmission apart from others is that they will try to repair a transmission instead of fixing it without a costly overhaul when possible. This philosophy of “Repair First, Replace Second” has saved Tri-City Transmission customers thousands of dollars. In fact, for more than 40 years, over 70 percent of vehicle owners who have come to Tri-City Transmission for transmission repair, came in anticipating the worst, but left leaving with the good news that the bill will be significantly lower than they’d imagined it would be.
In addition to running Tri-City Transmission, Dave serves on the Better Business Bureau of Central Arizona’s Automotive Advisory Committee and was past chairman.
Tri-City Transmission is an A+ Accredited Business, a designation awarded by the Better Business Bureau (BBB). The business is also a member of the Automatic Transmission Rebuilders Association (ATRA).
