Answers from the Automotive Experts

Maryann Croce, Owner at Croce’s Transmission Specialists Hi Kathy, A transmission shop is another option. The Automatic Transmission Rebuilders Association is a good source. Here is the link. http://www.atra.com/ Lot's of great transmission repair information and a shop finder. Good Luck.

Helaine Kurot, Owner/Technician at 360 Automotive I would ask around and see if any friends or coworkers have a transmission shop they trust. You can also look up online reviews and see what others are saying about the shop.

Barb Petrey, President - DBK Enterprises Inc at Jiffy Lube Find friends that have a used one and get their input. Also, a better business bureau could help you out.

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Hi Kathy, To find a good shop there are a number of things you can look for. 1. Are they AskPatty Certified Female Friendly? 2. Are they AAA Approved? 3. Are they an ASE Blue Seal Shop 4. Do they at least have 1 ASE Certified Master Technician on staff. 5.Do they have a good website with pictures and raving testimonials from past customers. 6. Is the shop neat, clean & the staff friendly and knowledgeable?

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA I'm sorry your having trouble, you can also peek at the website www.angieslist.com, and have your service records from the dealership.
