Clear guidance from sales manager. I didn't need an expensive repair!

Verified CustomerOctober 24, 2013

I have used Certified Transmission for two different vehicles. On both occasions, the service was excellent, reasonably priced and the people were very courteous and up-front. They also appear very knowledgeable and are able to explain things in a very understandable manner.

At Certified they are always willing to help and give you an affordable route. I forgot to get mine maintenance in order to keep my 5 year warranty. They allowed it to slide as long as I did the maintenance needed Great Company!

October 17, 2013

They researched the problem and referred me to Dodge Dealer for a transmission re-flash. That solved the rough shifting problem. They were honest and did not use fear tactic to make me feel that I needed expensive repairs.

We felt that the people we spoke with were honest and upfront in dealing with us and explaining things to us.

Verified CustomerAugust 29, 2013

I trusted them to make an accurate diagnosis of my problem and paid several thousand dollars to fix the problem and the problem was not fixed. They rebuilt my transmission and i twas not what the problem was. My truck needed a tune up $700.00

Verified CustomerAugust 28, 2013

Had a follow up visit was told needed more repair they would get me a quote I called twice they said they would get back to me never did and said I needed trans mounts 6 months after they installed a new trans why not do it then and can not call me back to get a quote

We brought our truck in for a service and to check out our transmission. They never did the service and wanted to do hundreds of dollars of work for something that wasn't even wrong. When we took it to another tranmission place there was nothing wrong. They were just trying to get us to spend a lot of money because they knew that we needed our truck over the weekend and had boiled over the tranmission fluid recently so they just wanted to make up some excuse to have us spend money. Luckily my brother is a mechanic and when I called and told him the problem he said that it was baloney and to go somewhere else. So we still ended up paying around $200 for them to not even service the transmission but to just diagnos something that wasn't even wrong!!!!

Reliable, honest.

They held my car until I could arrange payment.

Verified CustomerAugust 05, 2013

I've never been to any kind of a repair shop where the owners try so hard to make things perfect; sometimes at their own expense.

Verified CustomerAugust 05, 2013

Good communication, good service, great warranty

August 01, 2013

They are a complete rip off. If your tranny fails you might as well plan on replacing it completely because these guys will take it apart and then if you change your mind charge you to reinstall broken tranny. Your left with only one option and they know it. Complete Overhaul. So be smart, take your tranny problem stright to your dealer. They will save you money.

They took a little extra time to fix the problem

They are thorough and did a great job on transmission.

Verified CustomerJuly 03, 2013

I feel that we were falsely misguided to believe that we were getting a detailed to the penny diagnoses for $50 to get my vehicle there to the shop. Once it was there they said it was going to be around $500 for the to the penny detailed diagnoses. That if we didn't use them we had to pay for the diagnoses and tow. That is was only 50 if we used them. I was pretty much told that if we didn't use them it was going to use Certified that we would have to take it out in pieces. I feel that it was a total scam!!! To put a person between a rock and hard spot so they had to use Certified. We had to pay over $250 to get my vehicle back and we still had no idea what was wrong with our transmission. I think The Ghephart approval, triple A approval and BBB is Bull....!!! I have never been treated to badly and lied to by a business. I will never recommend this company to anyone!!!..I will make sure to deter them in another direction. This company is nothing but a scam and fraudulent. I would really like my money back!!!

I like the way they do business. transmission problems are terrible to deal with. I went to them and found out that my transmission was ok and they didn't try to cheat me.

Verified CustomerMay 23, 2013

I had a good experience. I just felt presure to have to remember the checkup each year that I would forget as there is no reminder.
