My family has been going to Smith Brothers for years for all of our transmission needs, from having my 2005 maxima transmission rebuilt 2 years ago to having our fluid and filter changed yearly. My brother in law for some reason ignored my advice and took his car to another transmission shop to have his cluch put in his kia. When they got their car back they foud the other shop had bent the struts and come to find out had put a cheap aftermarket clutch in it. I went with him and we tried to get the other place to repair what they had damaged, but they said it was not their fault and they had not even touched the struts. Well we took the car then to smith brothers, and come to find out the other shop was lieing and Rick at Smith brothers showed us that there was no way they were able to do the work they said they did without messing with the suspension. Rick and the guys helped us get the car back on the road and come to find out, they would have been almost 200 dollars cheaper on the repair, and they would have used an actual OEM Luke clutch that comes factory with the car. Lesson learned for my brother in law. The guys at smith brothers are honest, and have been rebuilding transmissions for like 30 years so they know what they are doing. When I had my maxima transmission rebuilt they were also 1500 dollars cheaper than any other shop around

Today I took my 2008 Volkswagen Rabbit in to have the transmission fluid and filter changed. They not only did a prompt thorough service, but upon calling them for an estimate, advised me not to have a transmission flush done no matter where I decided to take my car to have it serviced. They said that during a transmission flush, the service person doesn't drop the transmission pan to clean any debris that may have collected in the pan or change the transmission filter. They just hook up to the transmission lines and flush the new fluid in til all the old fluid comes out, which stirs up any debris in the pan and circulates it through your transmission which can clog the tiny screen filters in your transmission, which can ruin a transmission. Topeka Transmission does not do transmission flushes, they drop and clean the transmission pan of any gunk and debris, drain the fluid, replace the filter, and fill the transmission to factory specs with OEM transmission fluid. So needless to say, I was very appreciative of the great advice, and their prices were very competative and cheaper than the competition. I felt very confident that my car was in great hands at Topeka Transmission.
While no one wants to have to do transmission work, but Topeka Transmission did the work quickly and the cost was competitive. They compared options and gave me the information in a straightforward manner. Once decided, the work took less than a week. I then had an issue that I thought was connected with the transmission work. I asked them to take a look and they found a dirty O2 sensor - no where near the transmission - and fixed it for me. The car runs great. They are busy but seem to really care about customer service.
