When it comes to their car's transmission, Tacoma residents choose A1 because we treat our customers like friends and neighbors. Whether you need a repair, flush or full replacement, we keep costs minimal and explain what's going on in plain English. Because there are so many parts that interact with the transmission, problems can be easily misdiagnosed by shops that lack our expertise. With that being said, we won't be able to know what's wrong with your transmission until we take a look inside. There are just too many variables to consider. Never trust anyone doing diagnostics over the phone. Symptoms you describe like vibrations, noises, or leaks could mean any number of possible problems, and not necessarily a single issue.
Our customers appreciate that we always take the time to accurately diagnose problems and are honest with our findings. If your problems aren't actually transmission related we won't try to sell you something you don't need. We do, however, hope that you'll allow us to provide the necessary repairs. Although our specialty is the auto transmission, we know Tacoma drivers need maintenance for all parts of their vehicle - so we fix other mechanical problems, too. Whether your check engine light is on or your brake pads are worn, we have a team of ASE certified mechanics to get your car back to its peak performance.
Transmission repairs are typically stressful, inconvenient, and expensive - that's why it's our mission to provide our customers with the highest quality repair work at fair prices. We are committed to service and quality - call today for the best transmission service in Tacoma!
If you suspect there's an issue with your transmission, Tacoma has many local repair shops but none who specialize in transmissions like we do! At A-1 Transmission we know there is no engine part more complex and vital than a car's transmission. Not only are there hundreds of components inside that work together to switch gears, the transmission works in tandem with other important engine parts. Adhering to the manufacturer's recommended maintenance schedule will help your transmission last longer and perform better. We work on all transmissions: manual, automatic, rebuilt and used. All vehicles are welcome!
The best preventative maintenance for your transmission is to keep up on the fluid. Your car's transmission needs good quality fluid to keep the engine cool and lubricated. By changing the transmission fluid on a regular basis, it stays clean and will keep your car running smooth. Old or dirty fluid can lead to problems such as difficulties in gear shifting, loss of acceleration, and even total transmission failure. Harsh driving conditions can put extra strain on the transmission - so Tacoma drivers pay attention! All the stop and go traffic by the Tacoma Dome combined with pollution is a tough mix for your transmission.
Luckily we make it easy and worry free to take care of your transmission: A-1 Transmission is located in Lakewood, WA and open Monday through Friday 8 AM to 5 PM. Call 253-581-1479 to schedule your appointment.
