I came here with a strong recommendation that they will take care of me. I haven't had the best luck choosing mechanics, but I was assured these guys are good. They took care of my car, and while I had some issues still afterwards, they took it back again and now it's running perfectly.
There were a couple places I got estimates from, most of them telling me I should buy a new transmission. I was not going to do that because I didnt think the problem could be that serious. Central Transmission had a great price and the person I dealt with was a pleasure to deal with. I was extremely happy with the services provided.
They were nice over the phone and gave us a quote for the rebuild. that price was the same when wee arrived there to drop of the car and the same when we picked it up. We were glad to find an upfront, honest mechanic. The car is running good with no problems so I can vouch for their work as well.
I took my Saturn Sky here for a new clutch because the place was so close to my house. They turned out to do very good work and at a price much less than the dealer was going to be. The location made it a no brainer but I was glad to see they were really a great shop.
I have an old Caddy that is kind of a sentimental project. When I brought the tranny there for a rebuild they seemed very interested in the car and working on it. Many shops shun old cars, I don??t know why, they should be easier to work on? But they took good care of me and the old caddy.
I brought my car in because it wouldn??t shift out of park. I moved the lever and nothing would happen. I had it towed to the shop and they figured out the problem pretty quick and I was outta there for under a $100. I figured it was a transmission problem that would cost a lot more.
A friend of mine referred me to Central Transmission and I sure am glad he did. They did a great job and charged a fair price. Although it took a little longer than I thought it would... it was worth the wait. My car is running better than ever and the service was top notch.
My trusted mechanic found a rebuilt trans w/30K/3Y warranty for $5300, total estimate $6200(incl tax), installed. I looked around and was skeptical when Central quoted me $2400, installed (+ tax). It's been 4 or 5 weeks and the car is running and shifting fine, no leaks or other problems. The "lifetime" fluid specified by BMW was an additional $80, and they took 4 days instead of the promised 3, but no other disappintments or surprises. I am a satisfied customer.
Pros: Less expensive than all other shops based on my research.
Cons: Had to drive a car with a bad trans 30 miles to Kent
Very unprofessional. The shop had my vehicle for two days and no work was ever done on it. Took my car in early in the morning for an estimate, but never got a call back. I called half an hour before they closed and this is when they probably scrambled and gave me a random estimate. The estimate was very low to get your business as I later found out the part alone cost more than the estimate. They said they will work on it first thing in the morning and will have it done by the afternoon tomorrow. Never got a call back until I called them during closing time and they said they did not have time to work on it. There was never an apology or anything and this is conducting directly with the owner.
