I first met Greg, owner of Valley Transmission when I had just purchased a used Ford Station Wagon and then was suddenly laid off from work. I had some major surprises with that old car and needless to say I needed a company that would be of help. Funds for expensive car repairs were suddenly hard to come by.
I went to several places in town.. The usual Corporate Franchise highly advertised competitors and was told that I needed a completely new transmission, AND brakes, AND an engine overhaul, AND on and on. The job seemed overwhelming. But one day I was driving by Valley Transmission and decided to see what an independent shop would quote and if I would get the same story of an attempt to bury me and my bank account deeper and deeper into this seemingly money pit of a bad purchase.
Greg greeted me personally, which impressed me that I was talking to the guy in charge and not a commissioned employee bent on ringing up as big a bill as possible.
First he road tested the car assuring me that it was a FREE test. NONE of the other companies road tested the car! They just couldn’t wait to put it ‘on the rack’.
To my surprise Greg said, no problem, I think you need to replace your fluid and perhaps you may need an adjustment but it doesn’t look that bad.
I gave him the job and I’ve never been sorry. The car ran great and yes it needed some minor adjustments and new fluid.
After the car was finished Greg took me for another follow up road test and even gave me some driving tips to help me keep my transmission in good shape and not abuse it. I had a bad habit of backing up and putting the car in Drive before I had stopped it which put an extra strain and wear and tear on the transmission. I stopped doing that. It’s remarkable how I am now aware of others doing that and I pass his tip on to them and tell my Valley Transmission story as well.
I recommend Greg every chance I get. Greg deserves and earned my respect as an honest, customer oriented businessman and runs his shop with his personal hand in everything that comes in and goes out with his stamp of approval.
Good Luck Greg.. Keep up the good work. A friend, and customer for life.
No where else was able to take my car in as quickly as Valley did. They quoted me on a very reasonable price and fixed it the day I came in. Will use them regularly from now on. Even my Dad was shocked to how quickly everything got done.
They did a good job with everything. I only wish my car was done a day sooner, but all in all they were reliable.
THe problem turned out to be far worse than I thought it was. They had it figured out quickly and ready for me to pickup hours later. I was very pleased with their professionalism and price. really was less than I was worried about
I am really pleased with the customer service and the repair is great, it feels like a new car!
My transmission was beginning to grind and Valley Transmission fixed the issue with professionalism and skill.
It is great to have the performance back. The car is running like it used to and performing much better, very smooth acceleration. I am very pleased with their work, it turned out well.
I had a great experience! It was worth the drive. Everything is running great now. Thank you!
Thanks! – I was glad to find a place that knew what was wrong with my car and gave me an honest price to fix it. They got it fixed right the first time and that said a lot!
