THIS IS THE LAST PLACE ON EARTH TO EVER TAKE ANY TRANSMISSION.
I paid over $2600 to have an automatic transmission repaired. It worked for a little over a year, just past the warranty period. Then, in order to have a car for my work, I was forced to pay another $1300 to have it repaired again- only to have it fail in a few days. Then, Budget Transmissions (on Northshore Drive Knoxville, TN) DENIED there was a problem. Even confronted with photos of red fluid on the ground spewing out of my overheated transmission, they had the nerve to imply I was lying. They said the burnt red fluid in the photo wasnt transmission fluid. Right- the red fluid I and other witnesses saw spew from the tranny case wasnt transmission fluid? The owner and head mechanic were extremely rude and tried to pass blame for their awful work onto other parts (which were replaced and still did not fix the problem) or my oil being too low (I did have an oil leak but it was minimal). Also, the oil leaked from the rear main seal- which should have been replaced the first time they repaired the transmission. They continued to be belligerent and pass blame- meanwhile I had no car (necessary for me to work). On one visit, they offered to put my car up on the "big lift" in order to check it out again. It stayed there for days with no work done. After getting it "fixed" and driving it an hour, the transmission overheated for a fourth time. Upon returning to the shop, the owner responded by asking "Do you want me to put it up on the big lift again?" After the 5th time they "fixed" it, I sold the car. By this time, I had spend over half of the cars value on their transmission "repairs".
Budget Transmissions on Northshore Drive gave me the worst experience Ive ever had dealing with any business. Take your transmission ANYWHERE but here. I have no idea how the owner of this shop sleeps at night or is able to look at himself in the mirror.
Don't go here unless you want ripped off! I don't even think they took my transmission out of the car but they still charged me over $2,000. to "fix" the transmission. What a joke!! The transmission still doesn;t work and now they won't honor their warranty!!! Go anywhere but here for transmission or any kind of auto repairs!
Please note this is a fake, planted by a dishonest repair facility. Just check other reviews and the names posted on them. Kelly Wright is really the management of Transmission corporation of America, The biggest crooks in knoxville ! Just ask Don Dare from 6 on your side.
