Alvie's Transmission Service Unlimited
After my transmission went out and I received a few quotes for getting it repaired, I spoke with a friend who recommended I speak with Alvie. She said she hadn't used his services however she had heard great things. I researched Alvie's Transmission Service, online, and found that they have an A+ rating with the BBB and great customer reviews. In fact, I didn't see one negative review. So, I called Alvie who was the first person to tell me that I had another option, beyond a rebuilt or used transmission, I could get a refurbished transmission. The refurbished transmission comes with a 3 year 100K mile warranty whereas all of the other options seem to only come with a 12 month warranty. I spoke with another shop that was willing to put a refurbished transmission in my car however they were only willing to warranty the labor for 12 months although the transmission would have a 3 year 100k mile warranty. I spoke with Alvie again and he assured me that his warranty covers both the labor (R&R) and the transmission. Needless to say, I went with Avlie and haven't been disappointed. I gave the go ahead to order the transmission on a Tuesday, he had it in his shop the next day and I was able to pick up my car that Friday. Great turnaround!!! Also, he's great at communicating via text and has also texted me since I picked up my car, just to make sure everything is going okay. I'm very skeptical when it comes to car repair shops because it seems like many mechanics try to bleed you dry instead of doing what's best for you at a reasonable price. I hate to feel like someones trying to get one over on me and Alvie has done a great job of making me feel good about my decision and never making me feel like he was only out for himself. I will definitely be recommending his services to friends and family, when needed.

Extreme Truck Stuff
this is truly the most honest business practice i have ever run across. I had just bought a used truck and took it in to have a bit of a shimmy looked at. being a woman, i fully expected them to treat me like other businesses has in the past, as if i didn't know anything, and then try to sell me stuff i didn't need. not only did they not do that, they also pointed out that i did not need things done that i fully thought i did. the lead mechanic, dave, has got to be the most honest mechanic i have ever run across, and the owners are kind, compassionate, and care more about the customer than making a profit. and when i went there, they did not know that i used to be a truck driver, owner/operator, and know a little more than the average female. but they did not treat me a like a typical shop and try to pull the wool over my eyes to sell me stuff i didn't need. they are an increditble business in these times of so many businesses trying to rook someone just to make a buck. and of course, i would trust that mechanic dave with any equipment that i have. he really is the most awesome mechanic i have ever run across, whether semi truck or pickup truck, but to give you an idea of his expertise, the truck i just bought last week was a GMC sierra 3500 dually longbed with a duramax diesel engine and allison transmission. awesome truck, but even more awesome people to deal with when you buy a used truck!!!!!

American Transmission #2
It is hard to find a honest, trustworthy, and professional car repair business. American Transmission has changed our mind and will be our go to for all of our future car needs! My wife had taken her vehicle to a well known big tire/auto repair store and was advised that she had a head gasket leak causing a coolant leak and would cost over $1800.00 to fix. In calling around for comparison pricing, my wife called American Transmission on Atlantic Blvd and spoke with Richard. Richard advised her that it may not be a gasket leak but something else and would be willing to look at it for free to determine where the leak was coming from. After a thorough inspection of the engine area his mechanic had determined it was not a head gasket leak! It was the oil pan gasket and bleeder line o'ring, out the door for a little over $400, much better than the $1800 that wouldn't have solved our issue! All we can say, THANK YOU Richard!! American Transmission on Atlantic Blvd is our new home for all of our vehicle needs!Thanks again for the great service! Steve & Tammy Curtis

I've taken my car here before and never had a problem. Anything that needed fixed, was fixed and the job was done to my satisfaction.To my understanding, this is a local family owned repair shop. In response to the previous review... if you personally had a bad experience but, keep taking your cars to the same place where the bad experience occurred then that's your problem. Also, being in the business of repairs I understand that repairs take time, especially when there are other repairs ahead of you. Also when it comes to the mechanics of anything there can be other parts that need repaired on top of what it originally came in for. It's man made, take care of it or it'll break. As far as pricing.... I, myself, don't enjoy the high prices of big business repair shops so I am willing to wait a bit longer to have my vehicle fixed right, for a price more suitable to my liking. I've had nothing but good experiences at G.T. Auto and when I have problems with my car this is where I take it.

Alvie's Transmission Service Unlimited
I very highly recommend Alvie’s Transmission Services for the great job on my PT Cruiser. I needed my clutch replaced & after being replaced it feels like it just rolled off the assembly line. Mr Alvie is a very kind & patient man. He is an honest man doing honest work to perfection. Alvie’s Transmission Services owner is a very capable man with a business that he is very proud of. He is one of the most honest mechanics I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with in many years, and his prices were VERY fair. This was a very rewarding experience having my car repaired by this business & I very highly recommend this mechanic to anyone who wants fair prices, honesty, the work done professionally and as perfect as can be.I thank God for leading me to this honest business. I’ve been ripped off more times than I can even remember, but this time I was dealt with by an honest man who completed the work to my total satisfaction & made my clutch like brand new again.Ms Anderson

Jax Foreign Auto Service & Body Shop
I am very please with this shop! I've been a customer for a bit of time. I asked for some advice on the purchase of my present vehicle and was told not to buy it. I didn't listen of course and now I'm really kicking myself! They told me the vehicle was some what high maintenance and boy was that true! Three weeks after the purchase of my car, one of my catalytic convertors went out. MB wanted over $1300 to repair it! of course, they were NO help! You'd think after purchasing a car from them - under a month they would throw some type of discount to accommodate. No, not the case! I got this replaced for just over dealer cost at Jax F. ! Also, my cousin recently purchased a car. JFA said if we wanted to , we could bring the vehicle up there for a test drive and have them check it out for free! It's the little things I really appreciate! :) Thanks again for all of you help! Really appreciate you guys!

Express Oil Change
"Dishonest service tech" Guy tried to steal my oil, i called him out. I had mobile one put in my jeep that i had to pay extra for. The service guy, "older guy, grey hair and chubby" decided he would keep the approx. Half bottle of oil that my jeep didnt hold. I watched him sit it way over at the other side of the building in the corner by itself as if he was going to keep it for himself. i waited until the oil change was complete and ask if they was done. He said yes, we paid and he said we could drive out slow. I said what about the oil that you hide over there. He said, what oil, o, you want that? I said yes i paid for it, its mine, not yours to keep. He got it for me, he was imbarrased. Its called theft. You can not keep something that a customer pays for. It was not a mistake. He kept it intentionally, its called theft, shame on you sir.

Jax Foreign Auto Service & Body Shop
Last week, I took my 2008 BMW to the dealer for problems I was having with my transmission. They did about $1500.00 worth of work (supposedly) . After picking my car up I noticed I was having the same issues. $1500.00 and some change later, I drive back up to the dealership and am told I needed a new transmission. Good thing I went with my gut and decided to get a second opinion. I took my car to Jax Foreign Auto and they did an automatic transmission service and reprogrammed the transmission and guess what? EVERYTHING IS FINE!!!! Not only did I save thousands and a perfectly good transmission - I saved a lot of time too! They had me up and running in no time! I would absolutely recommend this place to everyone! The guys at this shop are honest, thorough and fast! No run around BS like the dealer! And most importantly , NO BS prices!!!!

Pro-Tech Automotive
These guys stand behind their work. If it's not right, they will make it right. I tried taking my elderly father's F250 Super Duty to them, but they don't work on diesel engines. I've had great service, fair prices (and the price they quote is the price you pay!), and I would recommend them to my mother. Like another review said, they don't try to fix what is not broken.I really think this is a shop that is doing things the right way. Fair prices. Great service. They are my mechanic shop of choice.I have a 2002 Toyota Tundra. My wife has a 2000 Honda Accord. My son has a 1998 Nissan pickup. We run older vehicles and Pro-tech has helped us save a lot of money doing so.I would suggest that anyone in the Mandarin/Baymeadows areas should give a try.Doug Strange

These guys are GREAT! On two occasions it turns out that my car didn't need as much work as the service manager thought it would. These guys could have stiffed me for hundreds of dollars by doing unnecessary work (or no work at all), but they didn't. On another occasion they started doing repairs and realized I needed more work done. He called me and told me that once they started the repairs they found a few other things and recommended that I take care of those problems while they're in there. Again, they could have said nothing but called to let me know what was going on. The service manager Pat Ojeda is awesome. I absolutely won't let anyone work on my car except for Pat and his crew. I highly recommend this repair shop.
Tips & Advices
You should change your oil filter whenever you change your oil, that is, approximately every 7,500 miles.
A oil filter is a device that helps remove contaminants from motor oil as it passes through the engine. A pump pushed the oil through the filter where it is strained and goes back to the engine.
High-mileage oil contains special conditioners that are said to help prevent gaskets from drying out and thus preventing leaks. This can be beneficial to engines with many miles on them.
Synthetic oil costs more than conventional oil, but the price is offset by the need for less frequent oil changes due to the oil’s durability.
Tools needed to change your own oil include jack stands or ramps, a wrench, an oil filter wrench, an oil drip pan, funnel, replacement oil filter, and replacement oil.
