DO NOT GO HERE. Worst mechanic shop I'VE EVER BEEN TO. Does not stand by their work. Warranty will not be honored. Spent thousands on a transmission that gave out in less than 30,000 miles.

Worst Manager Ever

I used to know the guys that worked at the Cottsman shop which is now Mr. Transmission, so I went there asking one of the employees for Manny at about 11:00 am this morning. He said that there was nobody there by that name. Then, A man came out of the office yelling at me not to stop his guy from working, he said that I should get into the office and talk to him instead, which I did. He continued yelling and looking at me in a very unfriendly way, without answering my simple question. He quickly said that he didn?t want me there and to go away, shaking his hand as if he was scaring a dog away. This man was acting erratically crazy so I told him that I didn?t like his attitude and that he would not get any clients with that kind of behavior. Customers beware of this madman and stay away from that place.

dont be fooled by nationally recognized name

Cottman transmission Holland rd virginia beach is the worst transmission shop . Took my car back just 8 months after initial repair and they did not honor the 1 year warranty. Had my car for 8 days and the Manager Manny called me up and told me the warranty was void because they found about a gallon of water in my transmission.Thats the same thing they told me 8 months ago before i paid them paid over $2000.00 to resolve water problem and repair transmission. I talked to Frank the shop owner and he said that they couldn't do anything about it since they can't find the source of the water( for the second time). They took the money knowing that if the problem came back they wouldn't have to honor the warranty because of the water.. Now i have to take my car somewhere else and pay a ridiculous amount of money so they do the job the right way because this shop didn't, which is what i should have done from the beginning. I finally got a hold of someone from the corporate offices named Carroll who initially told me that the shop would do what they could at a price consideration, but she later told me they can't do anything now. I will be taking this to court. Don't be fooled by the Nationally recognized name above the door....Beware......

Unproffesional. No pride in workmanship.

The only reason I am giving Cottman Transmissions any stars in the ratings is because this site says I have to give them something. My warranty company told me to take it to cottman transmission to get a bearing in my 5 speed fixed. I left my car there for 8 days. 5 miles down the road after I picked it up, I lost 5th gear and reverse. Took it back to Cottmans and they told me for $700 they could fix it. I then took it to Napa Automotive in Moyock. They showed me where the freshly rebuilt transmission was leaking as well as the busted shift linkage. The heat shield had also not been properly installed. The mechanic explained to me how the linkage was broken either during removal of the transmission or reinstallation. Not sure how a transmission overhaul facility could let a leaking transmission go out the door, just as I am not sure how exactly they broke my transmission shift cables. I do know that the car worked great before they worked on it and now it doesnt go forward or backwards. I will never take another one of my vehicles to this shop, and Id advise anyone that asks me about them to stay away and find a more reputable place to get their car fixed.

auto repair

I had my truck towed to cottman on blvd.I had the engine replaced there and it took them 2 and half weeks to do it.I would not recommend this company to anyone for auto truck was done and drove it home and it would not start back up/they told me to jump start the truck and nothing and they are trying to charge me again for there mistakes. so i seek an attorney and let them handle this issue..
