Wiwi Auto transmission icn
I've been a Wiwi Transmissions customer for decades and have had nothing but positive experiences. And my last visit was no different. The reverse gear on my '95 Mustang GT did not work. Had to put it in neutral, push it backwards out of my parking space and then drive to Wiwi just before closing time. I was fully expecting to have to buy another transmission. And I told them so. First thing in the morning Mr. Luis Zabala had my car checked. Within an hour he called me and said my transmission was fine. It was simply a loose bolt in a wheel obstructing a rotor. He tightened the bolt and I was ready to go. No charge. And in my experience, this was typical Wiwi service, honest and professional. They won't sell you a transmission that you don't need. If you have a problem, I recommend you see Luis Zabala at Wiwi Transmissions.
No. 1, the man behind the counter (one of the owners, it seemed) was very rude to my wife and I from the time we dropped off our vehicle to when we picked it up, even though we were very polite. No. 2, they waited 24 hours before telling us they wouldn't even attempt the simple transmission repair we clearly explained was needed when we dropped it off. We had to tow it to the dealer instead for what was a pretty straightforward repair.
Bottom Line: Rude + Useless = Don't Waste Your Time With WiWi.
I'm a lifelong Miami native and heard about Wiwi more than 25 years ago. Louis, the owner, is the most honest auto mechanic I've ever known. I've needed several big transmission repairs over the years. The work at Wiwi has always been excellent and the price fair. But, there have also been several times when I THOUGHT I'd need a new transmission but DIDN'T. This week, my 2004 Dodge Caravan would not shift out of first gear. I took it to Louis and he hooked it up to Wiwi's computer scanner. He lifted the hood, and two minutes later asked me to test drive the car. Turns out I had a bad transmission relay, which Louis replaced with a good relay from my car's fog lights. Result: Transmission FIXED. No big dollar repair, no hassle, no pressure. Just a good man doing his job with honesty and professionalism. It doesn't get any better than this.
