Sam at Transmasters fixed my car better and far less expensive than the other guy, who quoted me over $2000 more! I saved a lot of money and my car runs great after the major engine repair. I realized I was ENJOYING driving my car as if it was a new car! It was FUN again, like when I first bought it! Don't give up on your car, and don't go into debt on a new car. Go see Sam at Transmasters first. You'll be glad you did. I am!

Honest and caring shop, no sales push just plain simple recommendations needed to make your ride reliable and smooth. Always been a pleasure to works with Sam.

Thanks for fixing the seals and leaks in my car. Sam is extremely helpful and cooperative but the price for fixing things are costly. Maybe you guys can reduce the price in future to get

Sam was very friendly and knowledgeable. He made recommendations based on how I use my truck along with pricing for the options and let me decide for myself.

satisfied customer

by - Verified Customer December 21, 2017

I was surprised by the need of complete transmission overhaul needed. After just buying the car 4 months prior.

by - Verified Customer December 21, 2017

Sam goes above and beyond my expectations each time my car needs repair! Totally professional! He is not happy unless you're happy! I WILL NEVER TAKE MY CAR TO ANYONE ELSE for repair! Next time you need a mechanic, try Sam at Transmasters, you will not be disappointed!

by - Verified Customer December 12, 2017

Sam (I'd guess he's the owner?)was excellent. Customer service is strong here. Sam was keeping me updated every couple of days and the final price was the same as the estimate he gave me up front.

by - Verified Customer November 07, 2017

Explained well what was needed. Took less time than expected. Thank you for the great work.

by - Verified Customer November 07, 2017

Everything that my car needed was explained to me.Sam did an excellent job. I would recommend TransMasters Auto Care to anyone in need of servicing their car.

by - Verified Customer August 31, 2017

Sam is a great person, very knowledgeable and accommodating. The mechanics are nice and helpful. Awesome job they do.

by - Verified Customer August 25, 2017

I was referred to come here from another repair shop to replace a rear main seal and I'm glad I was. Owner Sam and his mechanics had my car finished in no time and at a very reasonable price. I really liked how Sam sent pictures of the seal leaking so I could see that it really did need to be replaced. This is a very honest repair shop in my opinion.

by - Verified Customer July 25, 2017

Sam was very kind and helpful. He explained everything and went out of his way to help me pick up a rental car while my car was being repaired. He gave me options and helped me determine the pros and cons of each one. So far my car is running great!

by - Verified Customer July 16, 2017

The visit was nice. I was pleased with the quality of work performed.

by - Verified Customer July 09, 2017

Transmasters is amazing. They did the work at a great price and super fast. They always kept me informed on the progress of my car and it was done ahead of schedule. The manager even took me to work and dropped me off. Great place and will always get my work done there.

by - Verified Customer June 27, 2017

Sam is awesome and I would recommend Trans Masters to everyone for maintenance and repairs.

by - Verified Customer June 23, 2017

Right price, nice people and professionals. I would go back to them for all my car needs.

by - Verified Customer June 22, 2017

They repaired my vehicle immediately. Having an older car, unexpected issue pop up more than you like. They have always been able to take my car in and repair it the same day. The only time I had to leave my car over night was for more serious issues, but they never lagged on the repairs and I always get it back the next day.

by - Verified Customer May 17, 2017

I am very very happy with the service. Sam is wonderful!

by - Verified Customer April 27, 2017

Everything went very well. They did a great job. In fact, this is the second time I have been here and that alone shows how well it went at the first visit.

by - Verified Customer April 20, 2017

I brought the vehicle home and only a day later the problem came back. I then took the car back over so they could test drive it with me and of course, I couldn't get the same issue to happen. Now the car is not drivable...maybe battery at this point. All to say, the shop seemed to have done all they could. I appreciated their friendliness and willingness to figure things out.

by - Verified Customer April 18, 2017
