Questions to Ask a Transmission Shop

  • How many years has your shop been working on transmissions?
  • Do the mechanics at the shop work on your model of vehicle often?
  • Do they have customers that received great service as references?
  • Is there an inspection fee before they will actually begin work on your vehicle?
  • Does the shop need to take your car apart in order to quote your repairs? If this is the case, then ask how much reassembly will cost. Don’t allow a cheap upfront quote sway your decision. This is an easy way to be taken swindled.
  • When services are quoted for rebuilding of the transmission, then will the repair be itemized and recorded in detail? Cheap shops will try and swindle you by not recording their services and then charging you for items, or services you did not receive.
  • Is this shop capable of all types of transmission work, or will the have to outsource some of the work to another shop? If there is another shop involved in this transaction, can you know their name so that you can research their reputation?
  • Does this establishment have active liability insurance? This assures you that you can be compensated if anything should happen to your vehicle while it is in their care.
  • Is this shop going to use parts that you consider good quality? Whether original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts, other new parts, or used or refurbished parts, it is your decision what you allow your mechanic to put in your vehicle.
  • Will the work done by this shop void your factory warranty? Don’t be left holding the bill in the likelihood you should have another car problem just because you didn’t as a question.
  • Can you receive an itemized report of the quote for your job? These items should all make complete sense. If you feel uncertain of something, don’t feel pressured to use that shop.

There are several ways to be taken advantage of when looking for transmission repair in Riverside County CA, so please don’t take the time to make an informed decision. Your vehicle is important and so is getting it repaired for a fair price.
