Angie and the people at Florida Transmission are very professional, kind and I will most definately recommend them to all my driends and coworkers. They have a customer for life. SATISFIED 100%. Thanks again Angie & Florida Transmission.

by - Verified Customer November 06, 2017

Tim and Angie were very professional and friendly. Angie came right to my aid as I walked through the door, I was acknowledged. I called and I was told that they would have an estimate that afternoon if I brought the vehicle in that morning. They called the next day.

by - Verified Customer October 15, 2017

Worst service ever.

Took the car in to have the 'Check Engine' check after getting the codes from an Auto Parts store. 2 Spark Plug wires and 2 Coils needed to be change on a 4 cyclinder. They wanted over $700 for that repair. Did it myself and parts were $190 that included 4 new spark plugs, 2 new Coils and 2 new spark plug wires. Took less than 15 minutes to remove the engine cover (4 screws), all the old parts and disconnect 3 wires. It took 10 minutes to put in all the new parts, reconnect the wires and replace the engine cover. Car running good again. I don't mind paying for good service but that was just too much for so little work.

Great service, good conversation, overall great experience. Will bring my car here again!

Better price than dealer

Brought my Explorer in fearful that I had serious transmission issues. This was July 3rd and my regular repair shop was closed. I found FL transmission via YELP and I gave them a call mid morning. They encouraged me to bring the vehicle in and the service manager Angie felt that they could find time to give me a diagnosis. Mid-afternoon, Angie called and explained the problem (something I would never have considered). Angie offered that if I gave them the go ahead that could get my truck out before the end of the day (put two techs on the job). They got the work done ahead of time. Angie did a very good job of keeping me informed and explaining the issues with my vehicle. I will be using this repair again and I have been telling my friends and family.

Nice and straight forward experience!

by - Verified Customer March 09, 2017

I had to beg them to rotate my tires, which I thought was a little frustrating. Also, I left a to do list at the front desk at 8am. At 11am I was called to authorize work. Work was started 3 hrs later than promised.

by - Verified Customer March 05, 2017

Very good experience was concerned that the pervious owners sold the business, but overall pleased and plan to continue to use them

by - Verified Customer February 12, 2017

Very nice. Great customer service. Completely satisfied! Very fair!

by - Verified Customer May 19, 2016

Quality service, very reasonable rates.

by - Verified Customer May 16, 2016

They were very thorough and reasonable and I would trust them with my vehicle anytime. They are just great to work with.

by - Verified Customer May 16, 2016

They were nice people.

by - Verified Customer April 28, 2016

They are very efficient, timely, friendly, and very thorough. They don't try to sell you something you don't need and they came recommended to me by a friend and did good by me. Their prices are reasonable and they have been there a long time and have a good reputation.

by - Verified Customer April 27, 2016

They are amazing. I would go back and recommend them to anybody. If it wasn't for Tim, I don't know what I would have done. I recommend the whole world.

by - Verified Customer April 20, 2016

The service was done quick and was much appreciated.

by - Verified Customer April 14, 2016

The last one was a service and it was very affordable and it took maybe four hours. Tim is great. He keeps me informed of what it will cost. They have a good location because they are right next to Enterprise the rental service. So, you can drop off your car and rent a car.

by March 30, 2016

Quick, thorough service. Only issue is my aux on my radio does not work now. Had the same issue with them before and had to take it to the dealership (bad fuse).

by - Verified Customer March 30, 2016

I think they were really good. I had my transmission fixed there before but this last time, I had a coolant leak. They found it and fixed my air conditioner. When I was leaving, the battery in my car died and they came and helped me with that. I was happy with everything they did there.

by March 24, 2016

Really good shop.

by - Verified Customer March 23, 2016

I was notified about any problems or task or test that was being performed or about to be performed. I am a female so I don't no anying about cars. I was walked through and given a step by step lay out of each problem. The over all service was 100% excellent. I am planning my next visit to got my head lights fixed.

by January 31, 2016

They were supposed to replace a drive shaft and a carrier barring. I knew they were going to put in a used drive shaft but a carrier barring is a twenty dollar part that I had to replace a week later. They were awful and they didn't try to help out. They charged way too much for something that should have been quicker than what they did.

by - Verified Customer January 07, 2016

I have only been there one time and he was very nice, helpful, and very honest. The price was fair.

by December 09, 2015

Excellent Service.

by - Verified Customer December 02, 2015

He did a good job. He was very knowledgeable and courteous. He gave me a good warranty.

by - Verified Customer November 03, 2015

They were great. They talked me through everything with the transmission. He called me and had me come take a look at the transmission after he pulled it apart and talked me through the whole process.

by - Verified Customer October 29, 2015

It was excellent, I was very satisfied and it was reasonably priced. We were very pleased.

by - Verified Customer October 26, 2015

I like the guys. Their smart and honest. Tim has got a lot of integrity. I never worry about him over charging me. I trust him.

by - Verified Customer September 22, 2015

It was good. They were very professional.

by - Verified Customer September 16, 2015

They got the job done quickly but I'm still having problems with the transmission.

by - Verified Customer September 10, 2015

I was very happy with the work they did.

by - Verified Customer September 07, 2015

Excellent shop. Made diagnosis difficult problem that other shops did not understand. They do not just replace parts but do the work to understand what repair is required. You do not pay for unnecessary work or parts.

is it hard to change a starter on a awd
Hello my name is Tim with Florida Auto & Transmission Repair, the level of difficulty on any repair is determined by the time labor guides, they do time studies on repair procedures such as a starter replacement. There are two main companies that provide this information, Mitchell, and Alldata. We use Alldata, the time listed to replace your starter is 3.4 hours. I would say that this indicates this is a more complex procedure than other vehicles. You would expect to pay around $340.00 in labor plus the cost of the starter. I hope this answers your question.

This simply means one of the on board computer ( there are many) has detected a problem. You will need to bring it to us so we can scan the entire vehicle's systems to determine why this message is appearing. Feel free to call me to set an appointment.
