About the Shop
Brothers Transmissions & Auto Repair is a locally and Family owned and operated business. In 2011, Two Brothers started a new adventure in Spring, TX. Knowing that the Transmission Industry in Houston Metro area required a Professional and Honest shop, the Brothers started to work in a project to fulfill the most demanding customers’ requirements. They trained their employees and create an internal culture of “customer first”, meaning that all jobs have to be done with nothing but the core values of the company: Integrity, Honesty and with high Quality Standards.
At Brothers, we strive to help customers in maintaining and repairing their cars and trucks at reasonable prices, offering high quality parts and services.

What services do you offer?

If the vehicle is not able to be driven to our facility, then we will offer our free towing service to the customer, this allows us to limit the amount of damage to the Transmission. We literally work on anything with a Transmission and Motor, from trucks to cars, boats to R.V.’s, 18 wheeler’s to motor cycles.

How do you advise customers to do when it comes to the question of repair, rebuild or replace?
We always want to start with the Transmission in the vehicle. This, is generally the original unit, and repairing the original transmission is usually the most efficient and cost effective way to get the Transmission fixed within a budget for the customer. Again, when a customer calls with a Transmission issue, the first step is always diagnostic’s. The issue may be a minor transmission problem, or not transmission at all. Even in cases where the vehicle has no forward or reverse, it may indicate something other than Transmission failure. The Diagnostic step allows us to know what if anything is going on with the Transmission and what direction we need to go, to help our customer.
How much do you charge (approximately) to have a transmission repaired? Replaced? How long does it typically take?
We average all of our invoices once a year. We include everything from minor repairs to major repairs, and fluid change services to manual clutch repairs. Our average repair order over a 12 month period is $1873,21.
A Transmission rebuild or repair (the Transmission has to be taken out of the vehicle) takes about 3 days, start to finish product.
Please give me a quick summary of the steps in the process of getting a car repaired at your shop.
When a vehicle arrives at our facility, we first get all the vehicle information and get ready to perform a complete daignostic’s on the vehicle, which will take generally about 3 hours from time of arrival. The technician will then bring the paperwork into the office and we will call the customer with the findings. If the transmission needs to be seperated from the vehicle, we will talk with the customer about labor charges involved in doing so. The transmission is then taken out, and opened. A complete inspection of all the internal parts is then completed and a list of parts needed to repair the transmission is given by the rebuilder. We will then search vendor’s, Nationwide, to compile a list of cost associated with the repair and inform the customer of their options. We generally will have at 3 options for the customer. The goal is to take the new, used and rebuilt parts cost and use a combination of all three to come up with a price for our customers. We always are striving to repair the transmission as inexpensive as possible, but make it a permanent fix for the customer.
Do you offer warranties/guarantees on your work? If so, for how long/how many miles?
Brothers Transmission offers a 12 Month/12,000 mile parts and labor warranty, 2 Year / 24,000 mile warranty,
and a 3 Year/100,000 mile warranty based on the amount of parts needing to be replaced.
In your experience, what is the most common cause of transmission problems?
The most common cause of Automatic Transmission failure is the filters on the Transmission have not been replaced regularly, causing poor circulation of the fluid and restriction in the pressure of fluid going to the clutch’s.
Do you recommend flushing or changing the fluid? Why?
We do not recommend Transmission flush service’s. Most of the Transmission flush services, do not replace the Transmission filter. The Transmission filter is designed to collect trash from normal driving and after time gets clogged up and restricts the flow of pressure needed to properly engage the clutch’s in the Transmission. Automatic Transmissions are hydraulic units and need the proper amount of pressure. A fluid change service insures that the pan is taken off and inspected, the filter is changed and new fluid replaced to allow the Transmission fluid to circulate properly.
What make and model do you see the most in your shop?
We see a variety of Makes and Models in our shop. It’s hard to say that the Transmission failure is due to manufacturing flaws. Most Transmission failures are caused by poor maintenance. However, vehicles with a CVT Transmission have to be the most problematic. The cost of parts and the availablity of the parts, make for a very expensive repair. I mention to customers, looking to purchase a new or used vehicle to call the dealership parts department with the last 8 numbers of the Vehicle Identification Number and ask if that vehicle has a CVT Transmission. If it does, Stay away from that vehicle.
What problem is most commonly assumed to be a transmission issue, when it actually isn’t?
Today’s vehicles have more than 14 different computers, Modules, Sensors, and Relays that are all sending information to our vehicle’s computer system. We have found that 2 out of every vehicle’s that we do Diagnostics on don’t even need a Transmission. Tune ups on motors, Fuel filters, and Catalytic converters on our exhaust systems are some of the most common problems with vehicle’s experiencing, what seems to be Transmission failure.
What payment methods do you accept? Do you offer financing?
We accept Master Card, Visa, American Express, Paypal, and have a few different Financing Companies as well as some in house financing available to our customers.
