Corona Transmission is by far the best shop for automotive repair within 50 miles of Corona. Jesse, the owner, is a conscientious, honest, and knowledgeable mechanic who finds and fixes auto problems the first time around. He also knows quality parts and which third party parts are better than factory parts. And he keeps track of factory updates and revisions to factory parts so he always installs the updated and improved parts. Also, he keeps track of all automobile recalls and the specific problems so he knows which corrected updated parts to use. My car had oil leaks, differential problems, and brake problems that several other mechanics couldn't fix. After spending way too much money with those others I found Corona Transmission and thought I'd found nurvana(sp?). Voila, an honest mechanic with a penchant for doing things right the first time. And, his prices are great. But if your expecting cheapskate work, go back to the cheapskate and pay several times over. To top it off, his Office Manager, Melissa, is extremely knowledgeable and works with Jesse in the shop sometimes and really knows her car repair. You can actually talk with her on the phone about car stuff and she knows what she's talking about. (She does all the computer research for recalls and parts updates for Jesse.)

On July 17, 2015 I took my 92 Toyota Paseo into Corona Transmission to have a lower speedometer cable replaced. I was charged over $140.00 to have it fixed, a couple months later it wasn't working again. I was told I needed a special order speedo cable that would cost over $160.00. After a long conversation with Jesse he was to order the special cable. Once I was to pic it up he would not show me any proof he paid that much for a cable that would normally cost $40.00 at most. Then it turns out after asking to look at the completed work the cable turned out to be not the special order cable. After asking why I was paying over $300.00 for a speedo cable repair on a $1400.00 car, he told me to leave his business and handed me my key. I offered $20.00 to pay for the lower cable her replaced again but he didn't take it. Somehow this didn't seem right so I put it on here. Plus a business been around this long should have more reviews.
I found A1 transmission/ Automotive through the yellow pages because i was sick of going to the local repair shops that were giving me huge estimates and even worse charging for diagnostics. A1 took my car found out exactly what was wrong with for free and started on my repair (serpentine belt) right away. Their service is guaranteed and so are the parts they put in. The manager is friendly and the staff is very knowlegable and most importanlty honest and "upfront". They give a personal feel to the work service they provide similar to the mom and pop shops of old. Yet, their equipped to handle all types of vehicles and repairs. Until i can no longer drive A1 has earned my business.
I have a 91' Corolla. My car felt like it wanted to turn of at a stop light or just being parked. So I took it to Corona Transmissions. Just from hearing and seeing what it was doing Jesse told me it was an intermedite misfire. I was recommended a tuneup. So I did that and now my car is running strong. :D The people there are very nice. They know what they are doing. (@Gra8choice, I doubt there is anyone who would do a transmission for $700 dude. Your story sounds fishy.)
These guys rock! I waited until the last minute to renew the registration on my H2 and of course it needed a smog check. Started her up and the check engine light came on - the smog tech said no way I'd pass until I fixed it so I ran straight to Hubbe's. Hubbe diagnosed the problem on the spot and ordered the part and installed it the next morning! Passed my smog check and registered in time!
I would highly recommend this shop they are very friendly and honest, i do not agree with gr8choice review, ihave alway been told the truth . They go out of there way to help their customers. and there is no way someone can do a transmission for $700 huge lie, ive called around and it is impossible.
The Gentleman that helped me and my brother out was very helpful. My brother put Diesel in our car, the gentleman helped us immediately and charged us reasonably. Very kind man, will definitely try his best to find and fix any problem you may have. Thanks - Brother from London

It is refreshing to know there are still repair shops out there that are honest, straight forward fair in repair of auto mobile transmissions. This shop is not the best looking one but their work is outstanding, fair and honest.
