Texas State Licensing Requirements

Transmission RepairTexas doesn’t require any state license of transmission shops in Houston TX, so there’s no state standard for competency and reliability.

Likewise, the state doesn’t require that transmission repair services in Houston TX first show proof of liability insurance to reimburse you in the event of any damages that might occur during servicing.

Questions to Ask a Transmission Shop

This list of questions will assist you in finding a Houston transmission repair shop with skill, experience and business ethics you can trust.

Experience, Qualifications and Insurance

Ask these questions to find a shop that will deliver qualified, trustworthy transmission repair in Houston:

  • How long have you been doing transmission repair in Houston?
  • What training and experience does the technician have who will work on my vehicle?
  • Has the technician repaired a transmission in my make and model vehicle before?
  • May I have two or three references and their phone numbers?
  • Do you carry liability insurance to reimburse me if my vehicle is damaged while here, and may I have the name and number of your insurance provider?

Diagnostic Fees and Repair Estimates

In this set of questions, you want to make sure that there are no hidden fees. A reasonable diagnostic fee is standard, but some Houston transmission repair shops have a practice of quoting a low diagnostic fee and then charging you far more money to put your transmission back together after the inspection if you decide to take it elsewhere to be repaired.

  • Do you charge a diagnostic fee?
  • Does that fee cover reassembling the transmission after the diagnosis has been made, if I decide not to have the vehicle repaired?
  • Will you give me a written and itemized transmission repair estimate and require my authorization before work begins?
  • Are there any potential charges not listed on the estimate?

How Repairs Are Done

Some Houston transmission repair shops give estimates for service called a “transmission rebuild” or “rebuilt transmission” but only do minor bench repairs and replace the fewest possible parts. These questions will help you avoid such unfair practices:

  • Will you provide me with an itemized list of everything that will be replaced in a transmission rebuild or other type repair?
  • Do you use original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts?
  • Are the parts new, used or refurbished, and if I have a choice, what are the cost and warranty differences?
  • Is any of the work contracted out to another shop, and if so, what is the name and number of the shop?
  • Will this transmission repair affect my vehicle’s warranty?
  • Do you warranty the repair parts and labor, and if so, for how long?
