by - Verified Customer July 06, 2017

Everything went good and service was great I always go there I have always had all my cars there.

by - Verified Customer June 28, 2017

Great customer service, they work with you on repairs and on if you needed time to get the money together.

by - Verified Customer June 28, 2017

Everyone there is courteous, they are helpful, and the estimates they gave were right on. The car and the GMC - truck both of them were done to my satisfaction. I couldn't ask for anything more.

by - Verified Customer June 25, 2017

The sales manager is really polite, very knowledgeable. I enjoyed working with him his name is Andrew and the service staff seems to be very good and I have to take my car back just for a follow-up. Overall the experience has been very good.

by - Verified Customer June 22, 2017

I wished they had told me that if I had spent 2,500 dollars on the transmission the car would only still be worth 900 dollars on Kelley Blue Book then I probably wouldn't have had it done so I understand why they didn't tell me but you know, I wasted 2,500 that I can't get back.

by - Verified Customer June 19, 2017

They were prompt, efficient, and in my experience they only do what needs to be done.

by - Verified Customer June 12, 2017

They did a pretty good job and you know, didn't take them long.

The transmission repair was more than adequate I have not had any problems with the parts that have been replaced.

by - Verified Customer June 08, 2017

My last experience went really well. I actually had my transmission replaced through Cottman it runs well I had no issues since I picked up my truck. The only thing was that it kind of dragged it was just getting the parts which made it irritating and I know it's not the manager's fault it was the part timing. When he told me it was going to be in it wasn't but he did call and gave me an update which I really appreciated. My husband had his brake line replaced and it did snap. I haven't taken it back, he was really bothered by that because it was brand new front to back and it snapped we are going to take it back but we haven't yet.

I got top notch respect, the job was done in a reasonable time. It's the best transmission shop around I think. I like it being open on a Saturday that's what took me there to begin with. I couldn't get anywhere during the week so I thought I would try you guys and I am glad I did. You are number one and that's a big plus if someone's working all the time. They are the only ones open on a Saturday.

They got the truck within a good time period and took care of it at a fair price.

by - Verified Customer May 25, 2017

They were very wonderful, the service was great, they did a great job on my car and I haven't had any problems since it has been fixed, they are a great company.

by - Verified Customer May 25, 2017

Honest. I gave him more than I thought I did, I didn't need the other part yet but I needed it soon and they went and finished that part too. Instead of getting the money out of me later they got it then.

by - Verified Customer May 23, 2017

Their service was quick and efficient for sure. They are just good people it was all good I had a good experience with them.

I went there to have an opinion on how my vehicle was running and I was told it was due to my transmission why these symptoms were happening with my vehicle. They inspected the transmission and proceeded to say there were all sorts of things that were wrong and needed to be fixed according to what they recommended. Since then the problem I initially went in for are still occurring and it's running to me, even worse than it was before so 4,000 dollars later my vehicle is no better now then it was before having my car serviced there.

by - Verified Customer May 10, 2017

I am very satisfied with what they did to my transmission.

by - Verified Customer May 04, 2017

I like Mark I think Mark is cool man.

by - Verified Customer May 04, 2017

Customer service was excellent, service was very good I don't have any complaints, other than they need to have change for a 100 dollar bill.

by - Verified Customer April 25, 2017

It was pretty friendly and fast service.

by - Verified Customer April 20, 2017

The gentleman running it was very nice but he wasn't fully informed. I went to him because I might need a transmission cooler and there was already one on it. He was very nice, very knowledgeable, but their parking lot is dreadful you can't get into it.

by - Verified Customer April 14, 2017

Had some fluid changed in the tranny the guy went over and above. It was a holiday weekend he called me on a Saturday and I was in town for the week and he said they would be closed but he had a technician come in and service my car. I was overjoyed. I have been there three times and each time it is exceptional. I would go again but I live in California now.
