I went to Tim's AATCO after going to the dealer. I wanted a second opinion on a noise both myself and the dealer thought may be caused by a problem with the transmission. As I always do nowadays , I looked up reviews on a few websites locally. I noticed Tim's had what I would consider the highest positive rating of any of the shops around. I decided to post my comment to this site because there were a few negatives here… and I can't imagine posting a negative after my experence. Even though the place was very busy , TIm had a mechanic pause what he was working on to take a look at mine. I'm a busy person ( as we all are) so giving me that quick attention was very impressive. After a quick test drive and the mechanic giving it the once over , he told me it needed to be up on the rack so they could listen all the way down the truck from underneath ( he said the sounds that I'm hearing can travel due to shrouds around the engine) . I didn't have any more time to wait that day so I asked If I could bring it back the next day. He said "Anytime".

I came back the next day and again , he stopped what he was doing to rearrange things and got my truck up on the rack , without any prodding from me ( And believe me I can prod ). After no more than 10 minutes his mechanic reported back that it wasn't the transmission at all , the sound was coming from the alternator. He handed me back the keys , and you could tell he was happy to report back that this was not a big problem for me! NO CHARGE.

How unusual is it where a shop owner goes out of his way to satisfy a customer without any gain for himself. I think this shop has a higher moral compass than I've experienced from other shops in my life. Not that I want Tranny problems , but If I do , I will return to Tim's!

I called Tim today in distress that I had damaged my transmission during all the recent snow and ice. He listened and made suggestions for safely getting my car in so he could look at it for me free of charge. As it turned out, my transmission was fine but the fluid was low, which he filled for me at no charge. The entire experience from my initial phone call to driving out of the shop was incredible. I could have been told my transmission needed major repair, and I wouldn't have known the difference. Tim truly cares about his customers, is friendly and honest - the antithesis of most auto shops I've encountered in my 40 + years of driving. I can't recommend him highly enough. I will definitely be back for any future problems with my transmission. He is a real find in this crazy world - someone who puts his customers above lining his pockets. Thanks, Tim!

I gave them my customized Corvette the same year, model and color as Tim's customized Corvette. I thought and Tim said he would treat me, and my /our car right, but, me and my car got thrashed. I should have checked out their shop, bathroom, and their smelly customer waiting room as they were really pathetic then. My car left bad, again, and again! They were so greedy they wouldn't slow down, even after things were going wrong! He ended up charging me $200 more and probably damaged a new part. That could cost me $900 later. It had to be towed back to him to fix the same problem he did all that for.

It is perhaps easier to have some friends write up something nice then to sue a guy for telling the truth!?

These guys did a great job. I went in for transmission service and they didn't have the specialized fluid for my CVT, BUT they got it within ten minutes and completed the job, much less than the dealer would have charged. They also noticed something minor when they were doing the service and fixed it for free. These guys rock!

You guys are great!!! Other shops were going to do total transmission job. Tim and guys did only service and no more squawk sound. Very happy customer!!!! Finally an honest set of guys to work with.

Don't listen to others negative and full of nonsense review. He doesn't know what he's talking about.

Thanks Tim and guys

I called them first because I heard them on the radio station I listen to.

I was shocked with how low the price was but I called 3 or 4 other shops and they still came in the lowest and were the friendliest on the phone.

I have not on the car long they were nice enough to make a list of things that they saw and let me know if they thought it was a urgent need or if it could wait. Then they left it up to me whether I wanted to do the additional items or not.

They finish the job promptly and even went the extra mile to help were they could.

I would suggest them to anyone looking for a good transmission shop.

Tim was straight forward, and his quote seemed relatively competitive. The job was done in less than a day and my car is finally shifting properly! Would recommend!

Like everyone else, I am watching my “retired person’s” budget very carefully. So, when my Toyota needed a new clutch job, I called around to get estimates and selected someone who was on the lower end of the bids. Unfortunately, the work took a week instead of two days and when I got my Toyota back it had new, strange sounds even though the original problem seemed to have been fixed. I had planned on having my daughter drive the car some 800 miles so, understandably, I was concerned about whether it really was fixed or not and wondering if my daughter would end up stranded somewhere. I finally decided that someone who was knowledgeable should take a look at it. I called Tim’s AATCO Transmission & Transaxle in Beaverton and explained my situation; Tim Schroeder, the owner and manager, told me he would be happy to look at it.

To my surprise and delight, they really did look at the car, made several adjustments. While I was waiting for them, I noticed they had a bulletin board with thank you cards and letters from satisfied customers. Honestly, after that experience I left feeling very positive and grateful. Tim’s AATCO Transmissions deserves a lot of kudos. I would take all my auto repair and maintenance needs to him in a second!

I bought a vehicle from out of state that had recently had a rebuilt transmission installed. While gettting an oil change I was told that the tranny was leaking from the pan seal. The company that rebuilt the tranny (in Utah) said that they would work with an AATCO transmission shop in Oregon to cover the cost of the fix. I found Tim's shop by doing a google search. When I initially talked with them they said bring it down and we'll have a look. They looked and agreed to fix it the same day. I brought it back a few hours later to be fixed. I killed time for an hour and when I returned I was told that the leak was actually from a different seal and that it would take all day to fix it. Tim called the shop in Utah and got them to agree to cover the repair. Tim's shop worked with me on several different attempts to get in there but I always phoned with short notice. On the third attempt he got me in on the next day.

Tim is great to work with and very honest. I appreciated how easy he was to work with.

Also, I think this Glenn R guy has his own problems. If you look at all the reviews for this shop they are all positive but his. He talks about how simple all of the work should have been. If it was so simple then why didn't he just do the work himself?

Truly Honest Service...The last honest transmission repair shop? My experience with car repair shops over my years has been less than ideal but Tim Schroeder's crew at AATCO Transmissions has regained my faith that there are honest, high quality repair shops still around. My transmission was slipping mainly due to shotty work at a Jiffy Lube where I had my transmission fluid serviced. Besides being hundreds cheaper than other places I checked, AATCO Transmissions did a great job and brought my truck back to life saving me $2000.00 for a rebuilt transmission. They found a wrong filter installed by Jiffy Lube after they dropped my transmission pan and that it was just sitting on the pan causing the transmission to slip and loose power. I have never written a review before but had to sign up to give this company the "props" they very much deserve. If you need a new transmission this is the place! Thanks Tim and Dan for being honest and doing an awesome job. Beware of Jiffy Lube quick jobs.
