The Best Transmission Shop EVER
I was in real trouble on the freeway when car started downshifting (auto transmission) on its own. It was frightening and potentially dangerous. When I finally made it home, I tried to get "bids" from a couple of places as to how to fix the problem. I was told I need a new transmission, which would cost about $2,200 + tax. I decided to get one more opinion, and what a gift that was. The workers at Peninsula Transmission in San Bruno were helpful, kind and professional. They told me to leave the car a half day, and they would diagnose the problem for free. When the half day was up, I was told that I did NOT need a new transmission. I was very grateful to Rico and the rest of the staff of Peninsula Trnasmission, as he told me that the problem was not the transmission, and for the time they spend "ruling out" needing a new transmission. Rico recommended me to a nearby foreign car specialist whom he has known for decades, and the problem was diagnosed as a celanoid/relay needing replacement. It cost $360.
It is difficult to find a reliable, experienced, honest repairperson, and I found them all at Peninsula Transmission. I would recommend them to everyone.
