I, personally, would recommend Gene's Transmissions to anyone having car issues! I have taken all my vehicles to them since 1996, when I first moved to VA. I have never had issues with any of their work. The owner or manager, Charles, has always been able to repair any problems I have had with my vehicles, not just transmission issues!! If I have to go out of town, I can stop by there and he has no problem checking all my fluids and tires at no charge. Anytime I have been there, Charles has always stood behind his work, and that is why I continue to take my vehicles to him.

I took my car in for minor routine maintenance. I was getting my oil filter & fluid changed, transmission fluid & filter changed, the rear end fluid changed, and spark plugs and wires changed. There was nothing mechanically wrong with my car prior to taking it to this business. When I got my car back when driving it, it slammed hard into gear when shifting the transmission. I called Charles, at Genes transmission and asked him why it was doing this, he said that he changed some sort of spring in the transmission. I did not authorize or ask him to do this. He said he would put it back to normal if I brought it back to him. I didn??t drive the car much at all because of the feel. I don??t understand why he would change something like that and make it clearly drive horribly. On my first free day I planned to take it down there to be fixed. I had a Dr??s appointment one morning less than a week after getting the car back, I had to have my car to drive specifically because I am in a wheelchair and on oxygen and it is adapted with hand controls. I was taking the car to Charles at Genes Transmission the next day. On the way to the Dr??s appointment, my rear end started making a horrible clunking sound. I took it to a nearby Chevrolet dealership and hand a service manager come out and check the car. They could clearly hear the noise and it wasn??t something minor. So I had to leave the car with them and get a ride to my appointment. The dealership called me and told me the rear end had severe damage. Another mechanic from a different reputable transmission shop said it was clearly damaged by the slamming of the shifting transmission. I called Charles to see about getting this fixed and also fix what he originally said he would which he wasn??t authorized to change in the first place, as well as what he was going to do about the now newly damaged rear end which I had no problems with prior to him touching my car. He said it was my problem and said he wouldn??t do anything.
