Jim is a great guy to work with. We had a little mix up on some stuff while he was out of town but he sorted it out very easily. It was a pleasure to work with him and I would recommend Leale's to anyone, especially in need of a transmission rebuild like me.

My insurance company towed my car to Leale's because it was close to where I'd run over something that damaged my transmission. I found the people at Leale's (I worked with Jim and spoke with Tanya) helpful, friendly, competent, communicative, and able to work directly with my insurance. I just got my car back last week -- so far, so good! I had a very positive experience at Leale's and would recommend them.

I am satisfied with the repairs done, but I wish they had not gone into my back seat to clean the vehicle afterward. I had asked them not to. I had some things back there and now they are not the same as I left them.

We are very sorry, Nancy for rearranging your back seat. We hope you'll give us another chance the next time your vehicle needs service. Thank you for your business.
