Too many people make false accusations and inflamatory reviews, because they know they cannot be held liable. Any person that wants to review the truth about a busines and their history, should first consider the Better Business Bureau, AAA of Washington, or Angie's List, as these places hold the reviewers responsible before they allow a rating to be done.

I brought my car there. They asked me to sign the work order or invoice before they wrote on it. I said that doesn't sound right to me. Ken Armstrong said don't worry we have been in business a long time. We are trustworthy. I believed him. They took my transmission system apart without my authorization. I ended up having to pay them $485 in cash to get my car and my transmission parts out of their shop. I took them to small claims court but Mark Shaw lied on the stand. The burden of proof was on me. The judge ruled in favor of them. DON'T TAKE YOUR CAR HERE!!!!! READ ALL OF THE THE REVIEWS ON YELP, CITY SEARCH AND JUDY'S BOOK. THEY HAVE MORE THAN ONE ACCOUNT ON YELP. READ THEM ALL. I WISH I HAD BEFORE I DECIDED TO TAKE MY CAR THERE.

these people that respond to disagreements by swearing and name calling! are simply folks who have no respect for the companies position.

I can tell you from experience Allen is a complete
cave man who will swear at you and curse you if you
dare challenge him or their work.
I have learned to heed reviews - why take the risk?
it's simply not worth it and you will likely regret it.

I would simply not take the RISK it's not worth it!

I bet these high ratings come from them and not most customers based on my experience.

like this other person said tge manager Al was very rude after I was
upset because they trashed my 2001 Cherokee -put in a bad engine from a junk yard into my car and it even had a engine light on. al said oh I don't know what's wrong but this is what you get.he seemed nice and so I accepted that and took my range rover in to get it's transmission tested. I paid about $60.00 for it and Al gave me the results saying it was good with no issues. two months later it went out!

I took it to Al and of course he denied everything and this type of horrid service continued. they were broken into and my car was trashed and they did not even call me! I reported it to the police and they had not even reported the break in!

I gave them a bad review after my wife had just died and al called me a bast??d plus other names. I can't believe they are even in business treati g people like they do with such bad service.

I was on a vacation for thanksgiving when my car stopped shifting gears. I was 250 miles away from my parents house the day before thanksgiving late in the afternoon when I called King's and spoke to Allen. Allen explained that the problem I was having may not be as bad as I thought and that made me feel better even though I've never had good luck when it comes to car repairs. Allen had his mechanic road test and check out my car in about 10 minutes after I arrived. What happened next I will never forget, Allen explained that there was a sensor on the transamission that needed to be replaced , he had it in stock, and the cost of the repair was only $123.00 plus tax!!! You could've knocked me over with a feather. To have my car act up at this time of this day so close to my destination I just expected to spend alot of money,in fact Allen could've told me my transmission needed to be rebuilt and I would'nt have known the difference. The speed of service, the honesty of the employees and the most pleasent attitude of the manager of the shop cannot be regarded high enough. Thank you King's Transmission I will always tell this story at thanksgiving as you guy's made my holiday.

Kings is a old school kind of shop where they not all about the money. Before i took my car in, me and my dad tryed fixing it and made the problem worse. Then when i took my transmission all apart and couldnt get it back to together right, Eric at King's showed me and my dad what we were doing wrong and helped us fix it. Not only did i get my car working but it was also a learning experience. Really good place to go.

King's Transmission is a very good place to take your car, i was coming down to see my parents for the weekend and my car broke down and they took very good care of me. Not only do they provide good services but they work and comunicate very well with there customers. You will not be sorry if you take your car into King's.

I had our transmission rebuilt there over 3 years ago and still works great. Has over 40k miles since.Their repair price was very competitive to other transmission shops.They also do other work on cars besides transmissions.Allan is a great guy to work with.

Roger H and Ken T and Bruce A have never been a customer @ Kings Transmission in Kent Wa.and Mr. Dwayde F does not explain that he refused to let us examine the burned clutch disc in his Corvette that he abused and was responsible for.There is no accountability in the people that write these false reviews and I believe something needs to be done about it.

I wrote a highly uncomplimentary "review" about King's business practices a couple years ago. My bad review was specifically for and only for the KING'S TRANSMISSION ON 4th Ave. in the SODO DISTRICT... but I see it unintentionally ended up here.

I've NOT been a customer at the King's in Kent and I have no reason to question their business or operation. I apologize sincerely for the confusion.

I had the Transmission in my Chevy truck repaired here after it was damaged during a rebuild at another shop. They repaired it in 2003 and it has been working flawlessly ever since.

I spent over three thousand dollars on a clutch with a lifetime warranty...and now...they will not honor it.
I had only gone 30,000 miles. I would say this is unfair as there were no exclusions in the contract.

I had my transmission rebuilt by King's transmission and after 4 months it started acting up. I took it back to them and they told me it was an engine problem. I took it to get another mechanics opinion and he told me that it was for sure the transmission. I brought it back to King's and once again they told me it wasn't a transmission issue. I took it to the dealer ($105 of my money) and they have told me it was without a doubt a bad transmission. I feel King's has been VERY dishonest and is trying to lead me on until the 12 mo 12k warranty runs out. Problem still not resolved. I will go out of my way to tell everyone to stay away.

I took my classic Mustang to Kings and left knowing that the carwas more than ready for the road. Kings took very good care of me. Their transmission knowledge was superb. The price was right on the money. I have recommend Kings to my friends and family.R.C. JonesAuburn, WA

These guys gave me an awesome deal on a transmission for my van. They got it in installed promptly and the van was out the next day and ready to go. The salesmen are friendly as are the mechanics. Their prices are excellent! They wont rip you off for sure, their work is high quality, and they wont give you the run around on when your car will be done. I recommend them highly!
