About two weeks ago I got the call no LSU dad ever wants to get: “Dad, the car is making a funny noise and it won’t go. Could it be the transmission? What should I do?” My wife and I do our best to supply our daughter with the safest, most reliable transportation we can afford, “afford” meaning we couldn’t send her to Baton Rouge in a car as new as we’d have liked. Her 2003 Mercury Mountaineer was in good condition, however, with good tires, functioning air conditioning, etc. The issue of the failed transmission, however, forced us to question whether we should junk the car or repair it. We live in Louisiana, but I could not get to Baton Rouge to check on the car myself, much less personally scope out a mechanic to check the car and give us advice. We were in a jam. Relying on very positive on–line reviews, along with some prayers and a hunch, I called Mike’s Transmission. Stephanie took my call. I explained our situation and that the most important factors were our daughter’s safety and reasonable economy, in that order. Stephanie took charge and arranged to have the car towed to their shop. She called me the next day with a diagnosis and a solid price. Knowing what I do after working on cars myself for over 30 years, I know we received excellent advice and wonderful service from Mike and Stephanie. Mike rebuilt the transmission and took care of another repair that the stealership had never been able to fix, all for a very fair price and in record time. I paid the bill over the phone and felt safe sending my daughter to Mike’s shop to pick up the car when it was finished. I have since collected the car to drive it myself and I find the transmission to be operating perfectly. I’m particularly pleased that Mike provides a written 2 year/24,000 mile warranty on the transmission. Mike and Stephanie run a first-class, professional operation and my wife and I could not be more pleased. Thank you Mike’s Transmission for providing honest, reliable service to a hard-working LSU family! Go Tigers and call Mike’s Transmission and Automotive! PEM Covington
I liked the free check out of my transmission that they offer. Found out that my problem wasn't transmission at all. I'm happy with their service.

My taxi cab was making a horrible squealing sound. I took it to a transmission mechanic who drove it around the block and claimed the planetary gears were bad and that the transmission would have to be rebuilt, $1,500.00 !!! Another cab owner suggested I take it to Mike because he is honest. Mike drove my taxi long enough to hear the noise. He said he would have to drop the transmission pan to investigate more. He called me 2 days later to tell me that the transmission was fine and that the filter was somehow being sucked up into the transmission pump, impeding the flow of fluid. What one mechanic told me would cost $1,500.00 only cost me $89.00 + tax. Thank you Mike for being honest!! He has gained a loyal customer and I will never take my taxi cab to another mechanic!! You want honesty? Take your vehicle to Mikes! They also do all other auto repair.
Rusty was so thorough and professional from the very first phone conversation I had with him. And extremely patient while I explained the problem I was having with my land cruiser (which probably took a lot coming from a clueless woman!) I brought my car in for a diagnostic test and it turned out that my problem wasn't even my transmission! They found out what was going on and recommended three great places to have the repair done. Very honest, enjoyable service. I would go back there in a second! Thanks!
