As we know, transmission work can be expensive. Most shops will test drive your vehicle and give you their opinion and an estimate at no charge. While at the shop, look around to see if there are any Better Business Bureau signs or accolades for work performed. Most good transmission shops will have schools attended or ASE ( automotive service excellence ) certified mechanics. Some will have plaques of accomplishments and/or training and achievements. Look at the shop area for cleanliness because a clean shop typically shows character of the shop owner and the employees. Watch the person giving you the pricing or estimate, if they are respectful and give clear and decisive information without hemming and hawing, then consider the shop.
