I had my transmission rebuilt here over a year ago, I intended to write a review at the time but creating a yp.com login was a pain!! So sorry for the delay :-) When the transmission went on my car I was horrified. I researched the problem and found that it was a very common failure in my make and model, and most owners had to replace the transmission costing between $3000 - $4000. Given I still had over a year worth of payments left, I was NOT willing to accept this financial burden. I researched reviews, and felt most comfortable with Affordable Transmissions. The only negative reviews seemed written by people I couldn't really relate to (one was whining that the office was dirty... who cares? I wouldn't trust a CLEAN mechanic!!). I was quoted $1700 for a rebuilt transmission. They assured me that a rebuilt transmission would serve as well for my purposes as a brand new, and this was an acceptable risk given the huge savings. The work was done quickly, and the owner was very generous about being flexible with me in repaying him. I didn't have the money at first, so he ended up having to store my car for three weeks while I got it together. I called him with updates constantly, he seemed to genuinely not mind keeping it for me!The car has not given me problems since!! I was very concerned that this would be a case of getting a few months out of it before having to replace the transmission altogether, but this wasn't the case. I would recommend anyone to take their car here for a transmission issue!THANKS GUYS!!!

The best total car service I've ever been to! They're very professional, quick, and efficient. The manager tries to accommodate you with updates about your cars progress, explaining the problem with your car in full detail so you don't walk away confused, and always attending to the customer needs putting them first. The staff are professional car specialists. I would recommend this location to anybody and have done it before with a few friends I know and they now use aamco as their main car care service.
Driving a tow truck in Phila since 1976 until 2010 I dealt with a lot of transmission shops and I learned quickly the place to have my transmissions repaired was Chuck's! I have had several rebuilt with no issues and I never towed any back for problems from being rebuilt here. I now live in DE and still only use and HIGHLY recommend Chuck's! Tell them "Marty the Towman" recommended you! You won't be disappointed.
my car broke down coming back from boston in new york had a shop there tow and check the car and charged me $700 and they said i needed an engine price $4700 so i called affortable transmission to come tow and do the repair and after they checked my car told me it wasn't the engine got it fixed towing from new york to philly and repair total cost $1050 very honest does great work i highly recommend this place .
I would highly recommend this business. I recently had to have my transmission rebuilt and everyone there was honest and nice. They took the time to show me the problem and answer my questions. They did the work for a very reasonable price and finished the work promptly. My husband and I were extremely pleased with the whole experience. Anyone with a transmission issue should definitely go here.
Ernie the proprietor is an honest and generally all around good guy. The placed does not look like much but the guys working there are good mechanics that actually care about the person and the car. I have been a customer there for over 15 years and will be devastated if they ever decide to retire.
Vince over the years has done several transmissions for me and now I have another vehicle that needs his help. I recommend this place only to friends. I send enemy's and fools elsewhere :o)Fred Dorman
Had two old cars done at Affordable, since last summer. For serious and expensive repairs, I would not recommend anywhere else. Great work, saved me thousands, and I'm still rolling!
After moving from north jersey I had to find a new mechanic.....these are the ones i can call mechanics......they really look out and make sure you understand what is going on.
They are very professional, courteous, inexpensive, prompt and knowledgable
