I took my Corolla to this guy back in Nov 2006. The guy was interacting good. But he scared me to death. I wanted to write a review since then.
My second hand corolla's transmission fluid was really bad (which I forgot to checkup when I bought from a private party in Oct 2006). I took it to a service center and they told that transmission fluid is bad and I need to fix that. I took it to a local mechanic and he drained it and filled it again. But after one month I checked the transmission fluid and found that again it is blackish. So I thought of going to the so called 'transmission expert' in my city (Trans-Care).
He just checked it for free and told me that my transmission has a very serious problem. He wanted to takeout and study my complete transmission internals and find the problem. He tried to convince me with his system, showing all the tiny parts of the transmission with his computer. He told that it would cost me $3800 for that. I told him that the car itself cost me just $5000. Then he said that he would take my vehicle for $1500. Then he asked me not to drive the car anymore in free ways. It was too hard for me to realize that my vehicle was so bad as I was just on debt for the $5000 I spent for the vehicle.
I immediately got advice from one of my fried who was more experienced here asked me to take it to the Thousand Oaks Toyota. I took it there and they said there is nothing to worry and its just a matter of a transmission flush. Since then I don't have any problem.
Today after almost THREE YEARS, my car is running GOOD and my transmission fluid is still in good (reddish) color.
THIS GUY IS FRAUD. KEEP AWAY.
(One more thing I found from two other folks who had similar experience from same guy. He it seems told them to dump their vehicle from a cliff. They believed his words and had to sell away their vehicle which they just bought!!!)
Steve at Trans Care is awesome! I took in my 300ZX for a new clutch and the folks at Camarillo Trans Care took care of me in one day, plus fixed several items that needed attention. Steve called me for approval when they found my shifter bushings gone and my exhaust mounting loose. This was fixed at no additional charge. My rear main oil seal had 100K miles so they replaced that but didn’t charge extra labor. Again, he called me for my ok before they did any work. They only use OEM parts and stand behind their work.
I’ve got a one year warranty and the repair work cost a few hundred $$ less than some of the other estimates I had. Steve is very friendly and I liked him from the start. Trans Care is the place I’ll be using from now on!
