Great place for an honest evaluation and repair of your transmission. They will tell you what is wrong and how to repair it....no games or dishonest tactics.



I had a complete diagnostic test drive done for FREE and thy were honest about the fact that the transmission was not in need of repair, just routine maintenance. One of the owners drove my car for 20 minutes and had a computer hooked up the whole time. Very thorough and these guy really know their stuff!

Good, honest, mechanics

These guys are great. They know their stuff and are very fair with pricing. I had them put in a neutral safety switch on my audi a4 and the only charged me half what other shops were asking and had me in and out in an hour. I had also been to their shop for other issues and they weree always couteous and would hook the computer up to my car and explain to me the codes it was reading and what my options were FOR FREE.
I don't know the deal with the other reviewer, but Steve is a very nice and honest guy,, there's something else going on with his story.........

DO NOT USE THIS SHOP

I paid over $2,000 for my transmission to be rebuilt at downtown transmission and they NEVER fixed the problem! I had to bring it back to them over 7 times because they took all my money and it was in warranty for a year. Through that year I had to bring it back at least 5, when the warranty ran out they charged me another $600 to fix the same problem they never fixed in the first place. After they "fixed" it again I had a one money warranty and had to bring it back in less than a month. They "fixed" it again and it didn't even last one month last time. They tried to charged me another $2,000 14 months later so I just took my car elsewhere. DO NOT USE THIS SHOP THEY WILL SCREW YOU OVER BIG TIME. As you can see I am not the only person that has had problems here and I do plan on reporting them to the Better Business Bureau....

Amazing!!

Beware of this company. The owner, offered to buy my car for $1500. Getting the title took several months because the bank that is now out of business did not release the original lien. When the paperwork was finally completed and submitted for transfer, I found out that Downtown Transmission had already transferred the title claiming the vehicle was abandoned on their property and now refuses to pay for the car. It seems that in Florida if you leave a car at a repair shop for more than 30 days they can claim it's abandoned and take possession. I was in constant contact with the owner and he assured me it was OK to leave the car on the property until I get the title. I called the police, but they say it's a civil matter and I need to file a lawsuit. Amazing!!!

claimed iconBusiness Response01/08/2009

We, at Downtown Transmissions, believe that we acted fairly and well within our legal rights. On April 4, 2008, this individual called our shop about a 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse that needed repair. We paid to tow the car to our shop, and estimated the transmission repair price at approximately $1,800. The individual said she couldn’t afford the repair. We told her that we could offer her up to $1,500 to buy the car, depending on the condition of the car and whether she could get a clear title to the car. Since the car had been towed in and it didn’t move, she left it here while she worked on getting the title. The car's registration and tag epired Sept 2007, and the car registered under a different name, who we were told was this individual's ex-step-mother, who was now out of the country. Our experience has been that it usually takes about a month or so to obtain a duplicate title, so we allowed her to leave the car here for that period of time. We called her several times and left messages, but to no avail. We hadn’t heard from her through June, July, and August. Our phone calls were not answered, and it appeared that she had disappeared. In our combined 60 years of experience in the transmission business, this typically means that the car has been abandoned. She was not in regular contact with us, as she stated, and the car was left here for 145 days as of September 1st. In September, after 5 months, we filed a lien against the car through a title agency, and received a clear title. At that point, we repaired the transmission, and found many, many other problems with the car that we also repaired in order to make it saleable. This included a new battery, new brakes and major repairs to the turbo, as well as extensive interior cleaning and paint restoration. We finally got a call from this individual, demanding that we pay her $1,500 for the car. We explained that at the onset, the $1,500 figure was a maximum, and was based on the car being in otherwise good mechanical shape. We found that the car was not in running codition and needed much more than the transmission. Again, a car in this shape, left for almost half a year, is typically considered abandoned, and we filed a lien for the title. She should have had ample time from the first lien notice to respond prior to the actual title transfer.

This listing has been claimed by a business representative.

Beware of doing business with this company

The owner, offered to buy my car for $1500. Transferring the title took several months because the original loan (and lien)was with a bank no longer in existence. When the paperwork was finally completed we found that they had already transferred the title claiming the vehicle was abondoned on their property and now refusses to pay for the car.
