You bet I would recommend Dr Ttrans. how do you really know if a business really does stand behind their work? I took my 2003 Toyota in for a complete transmission rebuild just over 3 years a go in June of 2009, I have had no trouble the entire time with the transmission that Dr Trans rebuilt for me. But just last week I thought I had ad issue with slamming when it changed gears. So I took it back to Dr Trans. they put it up on the rack made a some sort of adjustment and I have been good to go for the last week. The actual transmission was out of warranty, but Chris made the adjustment for free and had I taken my truck in like I should have for that last years free adjustment I probably would not of had this problem anyway. What a great place to do business with, in a day when folks put you on hold ,play loud music you don’t like, and give you solutions that only cost you more money… Dr trans stands behind their work and were nice enough not to charge me dime when they could have. I told the owner Chris that I would post an on-line comment. You will see this post in several places because of Dr Trans great transmission service. Thanks guys again. If you live in San Diego in the Kearney Mesa Area call these guys.
Received Good Advice,Which Was Fair And Accurate – Back in September I posted this on Google places site for Dr Trans. I thought I'd give it one more post:
From the moment I walked in the office door and proprietor Chris, aka Dr. Trans, introduced himself and shook my hand, I had confidence in this business. I was treated like family and like I hope and expect that I would treat others. I received good advice, advice which I felt was fair and accurate. Chris walked me through the problem and the solution to the problem, meeting his financial and time expectations. Major transmission work is never a picnic, but Chris and his staff made swallowing the bitter financial pill palatable and completely justifiable. Finally, staffer Nancy (Chris' better half) very generously and kindly offered me some convenient transportation to and from my home, making the repair all the more palatable. I have a new friend and an honest transmission mechanic, one I may make referrals to with great confidence.
Boo Dr Trans – Took my Eclipse here to diagnose the transmission. The owner said the diagnostic read that my 4th gear wasn't functioning....because the overdrive is the 4th gear. I didn't know at the time but I later found that this car has only 3 gears and an overdrive. I asked many questions about the overdrive and he gave me the impression that the car had 4 gears AND overdrive. You would think a competent transmission shop would know that my car had only 3 gears....
BE AWARE that only the diagnostic is free and I had to wait for a few hours just for them to CHECK it....the whole time listening to christian radio. To really know what is wrong with a transmission they have to open it up....so right there you're in around $800 deep. That's true for any shop but just be aware and be clear on the diagnostic. If I had known more about my car then I would have heard his explanation of the diagnostic and said...thank you goodbye.
Anyways, I had to take my car back 3 times and each time they gave me some reason why it didn't work....then the 4th time they failed they were nice enough to return my money.
Looks legit....but very incompetent transmission shop. Did not show me old parts. The owner was rude to me and had an attitude that it was my fault the car transmission didn't work. The belts were just replaced on that car and the second time I got the car back a belt squeaked....it did not squeak before I took it to them. After I finished dealing with them the belt actually broke on me one night while driving.
These people were rude and incompetent. I give ZERO stars.
Fortunately they returned my money but if you ever have any problem with this shop then report them to the Bureau of Automotive Repair...here is the link to copy and paste in you browser:
I Highly Recommend Dr Trans For Transmission Repair – A couple of months ago, my transmission died in my 2000 Hyundai Elantra. I was pretty upset because I just bought the car a few months before the transmission went out. I always get worried when I need to get my car repaired (who doesn
Oh Boy My Transmission Went Bad And I Need A New One. – Along with all the other expenses now my cars transmission started to slip. Normally to the dealer and trade it in however, if your on the same planet as me times they ain't what they use to be. Any way back in May my transmission went bad I took it Dr Trans in Kearney Mesa they fixed my 02 Buick, I check around and they were about the same price as everyone else however they had a much better warranty got a 3-year deal. So back to my experience with Dr Trans about two weeks ago it started making a like a bolt was loose sound I call them up and they said bring it in. Turns out it was my tail pipe but Dr Trans fixed it anyway they said it could have been them who maybe didn
Dr. Trans best in San Diego – Dr. Trans offered incredible service. Polite, friendly, caring and did an amazing job replacing our transmission at a very reasonable price.
we feel they went beyond the call of duty to help us figure out why we were having other issues with our older car. They insisted on taking our car and getting an alignment and rotation and did not want to take any money for it. Not only that they insisted on delivering the car to us as we lived about 30 miles away. we would recommend Dr. Trans to everyone.
Very Helpfull And Explained Everything. – I started to hear a thumping sound in my Mazda and it keep getting louder. After about 3 days I gave Dr. Trans a call on Ruffner Street they told to come in and see them so we could take it out on a test drive. When I arrived Chris took me out and right away he knew what the problem was, the good new was that I did not have to get a whole new transmission and they was able to repair some stuff inside it. Costing way les then I thought it would. I was without my car for only two days and it running great now.
These Guys Are The Best – Always great to save money...I own a Lincoln Navigator 07 and had been pulling a boat to and from my place to the beach, I had just destroyed the transmission. Call around and got the price at Dr. Trans, Not only I get a good deal I'm back for my annual Power Flush and my Navigator runs better then ever and pulls my boat no problem. I would highly recommend the transmission fluid change Chris calls a Power Flush. If I had done this before I probably would not of had to get my transmission re-built.
SHOUT OUT! For Dr Trans – Greeted by Chris and Nancy at the front desk, My PT Cruiser has 4-1 side exhaust pipes which are very close to lifting points. The car dealer and 3 other trans shop would not even look at my car. Chris got with 2 of his mechanics and confirm what he had already told me in the office. The noise I was thinking came from my trans was from my turbo. How many shops would pass up that money and tell the truth Picking up the car there were 3 to greet me the 2 above and Crystal. BEST Auto service I ever had.
Call The Dr If You Need Transmission Repair – As good as it get's that's Dr. Trans. My mini van's transmission went out I took to dr. Trans They did a free check of what they thought was wrong and they fixed in 2 days without having to repalce the transmission just put some new parts and saved me 1/2 of what some other palce wanted to repalce the whole transmissiom. I would recomend Dr. Trans to eveyone in Kearney Mesa or any place in San Diego.
