Receive friendly, affordable care

Google Review from TA: 

Tom and Jimmie are honest and friendly. I went in for a potential transmission related problem (big $$$), and walked away spending $20 to replace a nut and bolt.


Tom made recommendations for my own good rather than selling me unnecessary service or parts. I would not hesitate to visit Tom again for other car related problems.


Yahoo Review from Zupp:

I highly recommend Transmissions Only for any transmission work you need. Tom is a soft-spoken and honest person and extremely knowledgeable about transmissions.


He spent about 20 minutes on the phone with me to help try to figure out my transmission problem and then spent another 30 minutes at his shop running some tests and checking electronic error codes to find out if there was a problem with the transmission electronics.


My car is a 1998 Honda Accord with 178,000 miles on it and it looked like it was going to need a tranny rebuild. I know how much tranny rebuilds cost so I told Tom I was going to instead buy a new car.


He did not charge me anything for the diagnostic. After thinking about it for a couple of weeks I decided to have the tranny rebuilt instead of buying a new car and having $400 a month car payments.


I went back to see Tom and he rebuilt my transmission for less money than he originally quoted because he spent a little extra time shopping around different machine shops to get a better price for some work that required special equipment. He will also do scheduled transmission servicing for much less than what dealers charge.


You should see Tom for any transmission work you need. It has been over a month and over 1,000 miles since he rebuilt my transmission and it is still running great.


Yahoo Review from Happy Transmission:

I was in and out with a smile. Transmissions Only fixed the slipping transmission in my 2007 Dodge diesel for way less than I expected. I would recommend this shop to my friends. Thanks guys!


Yahoo Review from Doug:

Excellent service. I came in with a transfer case that I needed the housing changed. They took the time to do the work during my lunch hour and explain everything as the work was being done. I would recommend them to anyone.


Don Roberts from Sacramento:

When I heard this company works on Motorhome transmissions I thought I would give them a try since I knew the Motorhome dealer was going to be expensive. Not only did they do the job very timely but were much less expensive and were clean in the process.


Pamela Bush from Rocklin:

Transmissions Only is the only auto shop I trust with my tranny. They are very friendly & professional. I can count on this staff for help when needed and is done so in a timely manner. They're the best!!!


Brian Laws from Sacramento:

I have a 1992 5.0 Ford Mustang. My overdrive seemed to be slipping. I took the car to Red-D transmissions. They said they would need it for 4 hours to do a complete diagnostic. It was late, so I left it overnight.


The next day they called me and gave me the worse news. My transmission was slipping between all gears and my overdrive was gone. The transmission was going to need to be overhauled. It was going to cost over $1900.00.


Then, I heard an ad on KFIA about Transmissions Only. I took the Mustang to them for a second opinion. Tom & Stacey were very nice. Tom made a preliminary diagnosis from the information I gave him and he was right. Ten minutes and about $25.00 later, the car was fixed.


Thank you Tom and Stacey for your hospitality and integrity. You are now officially my transmission shop.


Mohinder Klair from Sacramento:

I wanted to get a car checked out before buying it. I brought it to the shop and Tom took it for a test drive and checked out everything else on the vehicle free of charge. Other shops were giving me the run around. The service is superior at Transmissions Only.


Chris Boros from Orangevale:

Got my tranny out of my truck and took it over to Tom the owner. He had it torn apart literally in 10 minutes and showed me what was wrong. Broken band strut, burnt clutches. My tranny was slipping and would not shift into second gear. He also gave me some upgrade options.


He rebuilt it for a very fair price. It includes a 2 year 24,000 ATRA nationwide warranty. I am a very satisfied customer and I highly recommend Transmissions Only. Tom remembered my name and that I was a recently laid off student.


Sergio Hernandez from Sacramento:

I have a 1999 Toyota Tacoma. I was having problems with the reverse gear it was slipping. At first another popular local shop gave me the worst news. They said that it would be about $1,900.00 to fix it. I heard about Transmission Only on the Christian I decided to call them.


They got my truck in the shop ASAP. They called me with the best news: only $ 180.00 to fix my transmission. My truck is running just like new. Before you go anywhere call Transmission Only you will not regret it! Thanks Transmission Only.
