Many neighborhood shops would rather replace a transmission than fix it. It’s not because they’re dishonest – they just don’t know how! At Tri-City Transmission, if we can fix your car without a costly overhaul or replacement, we will. Take a look at what these customers had to say on third-party review web sites:

“I took my car to AAMCO for transmission problems and of course they said I needed a new transmission at $4,000. I took my car in to Tri-City for a second opinion and after a free diagnosis they said what i needed was a solenoid pack at about $500.00”.

“My car I was told had to have my transmission replaced the first quote I received was $6000. I almost had a heart attack. I did not have to have a new transmission -- it was a computer problem. Call them they are #1”.

“…another provider wanted to just sell us a new transmission. These guys diagnosed minor problems, fixed them promptly, saving us thousand of dollars. I would never go anywhere else for a transmission issue”.

“My regular shop gave me the devastating news that the transmission needed to be replaced, at a cost of $2900. However, I came across Tri-City Transmission and decided to let them look at my car for a second opinion. By the end of the day Tri-City called me with the news. ‘We completed the courtesy check, tightened up the radiator fitting, cleaned up a coolant leak, and filled the transmission fluid that was 2 qts low. The codes are gone. That's right... I was low on transmission fluid”.

I was quoted $5000 at another shop and walked out of Tri-city paying for a repair bill of $450”.

“Expecting to pay several thousand dollars, I was pleasantly surprised when I was told that the tranny was fine and the source of the problem was a plugged catalytic converter. I shudder to think that a not-so-reputable shop could have discovered the problem, slap an after-market cat on it and then charge me thousands for a "rebuilt" tranny pocketing a hefty profit”.

“After getting a quote from another shop, I decided to get a second one at Tri-City Transmissions. They figured out it was really only a small problem and fixed it for thousands less than I was quoted from the other shop. They could have taken me to the cleaners and I wouldn't have known the difference”.

“A local repair shop told me my daughter's transmission was trashed. The owner said he could put in a rebuild for $2,200 or he would buy it for $500. I took it to Tri-city for a second opinion. It turned out to be a bad sensor -- $50 part”.

“After visiting the dealer and a Honda specialist, both informed me that I needed a new transmission in my Odyssey at around $3,300. Tri-City Trans informed me about a class action lawsuit against Honda specific to the problem I was having. Tri-City Trans and their recommended dealer went to bat for me with Honda Cars of America. The result was a new transmission with Honda picking up 55% of the bill - a savings to me of over $1,600. Tri-City Trans proved that doing the right thing to take care of the customer - despite losing the sale - is the ultimate payoff.”
