I will forever be a customer of Budget Transmission for a few reasons. This is my second time taking a vehicle to them because of my last experience with them. The diagnosis of the problem does not cost you a thing. They took my vehicle on a test drive, scanned it, checked the fluid, and removed the transmission pan to check for wear and tear all for free! They showed me why my transmission was not shifting properly and explained that it had to be replaced. Because they rebuilt the transmission on my other vehicle 70,000 miles ago, and its been running great ever since, I was confident in having them do another one for me. I handed my vehicle over to Jim on a Thursday, and I was able to pick it up that Saturday following around noon. The guys are extremely nice and have been rebuilding transmissions for the past 30 years. I would highly recommend stopping here if you have questions about your transmission, before agreeing to pay a dealership their insane prices. Dealership Service Advisors run off of commission, so the mark up is insane. My transmission rebuild only cost me 30% of what the dealership wanted.

great service, pricing, and amount of time was impressive! I will definitely be using them in the future for transmission needs.
I have had many of my vehicles serviced by TbL over the years and they are consistently honest and good to work with. I highly suggest John and team to anyone in need of automotive repair.
Do not take your vehicle here! My check engine light went on, transmission code. They had my jeep for 3 weeks, cut my brake line and broke a caliper. after a month, check engine is back on, it threw a transmission code, again. Took it back, they replaced a sensor, and now 2 weeks later, check engine is on and it is throwing another transmission code. I am having it towed to the dealer. Avoid this place like the plague! If I could give a negative star, I would.
Tim Jr. did an awesome job explaining the exact problem with our transmission, including showing us the defective parts. Quick, professional service, highly recommend Tim Jr. and his crew.
Great service. Took me in without an appointment. Thanks guys. Would recommend to friends and family.
Thank you Lucille, for being patient with me! Your reputation around the Pittsburgh area is great! In fact people know of you far and near. Thanks again for your work and being patient with me. I will recommend your business to my friends without hesitation.
My entire family has trusted them for years with all of our vehicles and could not be any happier with the results. My 2011 has been inspected there for 4 years and every year I expect to finally need something big repaired but since they are honest people I always only end up with the inspection and nothing else. I can't say that I've ever heard of a shop doing that for anyone. Even when my grandfather takes his car there if nothing needs inspected they don't try to fix anything just to make extra money. They are a good family and if I were you I would trust them with your vehicle. The costs are very reasonable and much lower than other estimates I've gotten in the past. Honest and fair, what more can you ask for from a garage?
To start , icwas nervous with them keeping my 95 dakota for the test drive , bob, who was very helpful thru the entire process , helped me get the best price for such high quality work. After the test drive the guys, told me every part that was bad and even offerd to show me once it was done . sure enough 4 days later and freshly rebuilt tranny they showed me each part that was bad amd what was replaced in detail , most shops dont do that because there shady. but not Gillece , there expertise have far more value than any other shop i could find . Most honest buisness i have ever been a customer for and im happy to say my 95 dakota tranny was rebuilt by them . i would highly recomend them personaly to any one who has a transmission issue .
Will never use again! We had been a loyal customer for years. Our latest experience is our last. We brought a car in that was shifting poorly. They said the transmission was bad so they put in a used one. They put it in and said that it was worse than the first one. So they put another transmission in and then said that this 3rd transmission was bad as well. Then they said they could not work on the car anymore because they were not making enough money on it (the labor was $1000 and the used transmission was $450). The car was at Budget Transmission for over 60 days. I took it to another transmission place and they replaced the transmission computer and it works fine (this cost $325). So Budget Transmission cost me $1775 for a $325 fix! and had me without a car for over 60 days.
