We will provide you with short but important information about transmissions and their repair.  I know you will find these to be an invaluable time-saver as well as very helpful. The following material is from the Automatic Transmissions Rebuilders Association website at http://www.atra.com/faqs.

“There are a number of ways you can learn if a repair shop is trustworthy or not. One way is to ask for references from people who have been there before. Another is to check with your local consumer protection agency, to see whether they have any records of misconduct by the shop.  In the case of a transmission shop, you can also ask for recommendations from your general repair shop: They’ll usually know a nearby transmission shop they can recommend. But one of the best ways to make sure you’re trusting the right shop with your transmission repairs is to take your car to an ATRA-member repair center. Because the ATRA logo is the symbol of excellence and professionalism in the transmission repair industry.

ATRA members are required to maintain an ethical standard unsurpassed in any service industry. These standards require ATRA members to provide honest diagnoses and repairs at a fair price. And ATRA backs that up by providing an arbitration process, to assure you of the highest level of ethical treatment.

What’s more, when you have your transmission repaired in an ATRA-member repair center, your repairs are eligible for protection under ATRA’s “Golden Rule” warranty. With this warranty protection, your transmission is covered under the terms of the warranty up to three years or 50,000 miles (depending on the type of vehicle and transmission) from the date of original repair, at any participating ATRA-member repair center, anywhere in the U.S. or Canada.  And ATRA has nearly 1700 members, coast to coast — over three times the number of centers in the next largest organization. So wherever you go, anywhere in the U.S. or Canada, there’s an ATRA-member repair center nearby.

It’s always important to understand the details of any warranty. Ask your local ATRA member to explain the specific conditions of this warranty program and how it applies to the work you need on your automatic transmission.  Sure, transmission problems can cause a lot of anxiety. But now you can rest easy, because you know you’re going to receive fair, competent service when you take your automatic transmission repairs to an ATRA-member repair center.

Transmission FAQs You Should Know Before Choosing a Repair Shop

1. Why does it cost so much to repair a transmission?

It’s true that it can be an expensive repair.  But not when you consider all that’s involved. Automatic transmissions, for example, contain hundreds of parts. A major repair requires that each component be removed, cleaned and inspected. And, of course, worn or damaged components have to be replaced. Then all of the parts are reassembled into sub-assemblies before being completely reassembled. Each step of that process there is a testing procedure. A final test is done when everything has been installed. Today’s transmissions are computer controlled too. So, all things considered, a transmission repair is a great value once you understand all of this.

2. Can I get a quote over the phone?

No. There are so many different transmissions out there and most are computer controlled now. It could be that your transmission isn’t the real problem at all. Just as a doctor cannot properly determine what’s wrong with us over the phone, we cannot possibly know what’s wrong with your transmission without putting it through a series of rigorous test. We can diagnose the problem and see if it’s in the transmission or in the computer. After a thorough assessment we can give you an accurate estimate of repair costs.

3.  . How often does my transmission need to be serviced?

Check your service manual or give us a call. Service and maintenance is always less costly than repair.
