I guess a good rating from the Better Business Bureau does not mean much to Sal's. I am sorry but in my case, Sal's FAILED me. When leaving my car with Sal's for a transmission rebuild at the cost of $2500 I would expect the torque converter, which is part of the tranny, to be replaced. It was not, leading to my transmission failing a 2nd time!! I took it to another shop and they told me that Sal should have replaced the torque converter as part of the rebuild job and that it was just bad business and shoddy business on Sal's part that they did not. When I felt it was not running right, i went by Sal's and he told me all was well with the tranny. I guess not Sal. If you do not want to risk a transmission failure on a busy highway with your small children and baby in the car, do not use Sal's. Believe me, I am not a complainer. Nor do i write reviews. But this annoyed me so much, being out $2500+$2200, and being put in a bad situation on the highway that I was compelled to write this review. I was so worried about getting ripped off, because of transmission shops' reputations, and I got ripped off! Note: This is not a hate rant, just an honest, trusting customers review.

In business for many years, the owner Sal is the consummate professional at diagnosing a bad transmission and knowing how to fix or repair it. He and his competent mechanics will try first to fix the problem before just automatically saying you need a new transmission. Many shops in this field will lie to and cheat a customer, and do a simple job and charge for a full transmission replacement, but not Sal's shop. He is very busy and does not maintain his good reputation by cheating his customers. He has many customers who have worked with him for years, both retail customers and those in the trade, who all send their transmission work to him, because he is honest, reliable and fair.

PROS: An honest transmission repair shop
CONS: They are very busy, and you may have to wait an extra day or so for service
