Transmission Repair in Louisville, KY

transmission repairFor some shops, the terms “repair,” “rebuild,” and “replace” all mean the same thing when it comes to your transmission. To them, it basically means you’re going to spend a lot of money… whether you need to or not.

It doesn’t have to be that way, because many transmission problems are the result of something that doesn’t really require a complete rebuild or replacement. But that means that the technicians working on your car have to understand how the transmission works, and how to fix it when it stops working.

At Cottman transmissions are our main thing. We’ve spent years learning exactly how they operate and how to diagnose problems right down to their source. Sometimes that means you need a transmission; other times it means you don’t.

That’s good for you because at Cottman we’re dedicated to making sure that you never pay for a transmission unless you really need one. So we’ll work hard to find out exactly what’s causing your transmission problem, and we’ll provide a repair strategy that makes the most sense for you, and your wallet.

Of course, sometimes that may still mean you need a rebuild or a new transmission. But if that’s the case, you can be sure it’s the best recommendation for you, based on your specific transmission problem. For an industry standard description of “repair” vs “rebuild” of a transmission click here

    • Last year we had a transmission that needed to be rebuilt in a 2009 Subaru Forester and brought it to Cottman based on their reviews. Greg and his team were sympathetic to the huge repair bill I was going to have, and looked for any way to safely save money. We also went ahead and replaced the timing belt and water pump based on the mileage. Having never been there before I called a few places to check that their estimate for that wasn't too much. The price was right in line with other reputable shops. 1 year later the transmission is still shifting as it should. Recently the same car had several other issues come up and I decided to try a shop down the street for diagnostics. Some of the numbers seemed a bit steep, so I took the car to Cottman for a second opinion. Greg, John and crew confirmed the issues, but the cost of the repairs seemed on par with my Google searches and I really felt comfortable having the work done there. I told them I need the car to be able to take a trip to Chicago and back, and they listed everything out in order of importance/ safety. To some it up, when we drop our cars off at Cottman, I don't feel like I'm being up sold a bunch services the vehicle doesn't need. And they stand by their work!

    • Have used Cottman transmission several times now on 1998 E150. Always professional, honest & fair priced. Greg will take the time to talk & explain the repairs needed even though the shop is busy. Would be my 1st recommendation to a friend needing repairs!

    • We love Greg and his team. They do a great job with our older vehicles, and they don't nickel and dime us. They are very honest about what needs to be fixed now, and what still has life in it.

    • Cottman handled my manual clutch replacement with exceptional service. After replacement, the truck drove like new again with the exception of a newly leaking axle seal. Cottman continued to take the truck in to resolve at no additional charge. Exceptional service and communication throughout the entire process. I highly recommend.
