On behalf of my client Charles Garam,a big thank you is in order for your prompt attention and excellent service regarding the diagnosis of the 2006 Chevy Cobalt. Initially,Charles was scheduled to work on Tuesday,March 26th when he noticed that his car would not move forward. He contacted Triple A for a tow in which they brought the car to a local automotive repair shop in Cromwell,CT. After diagnosing the Chevy Cobalt,the technician told him that he needed a transmission and the cost would be approximately $5,000. Charles told me what was said,so I immediately asked him to call Triple A once again and have his car towed to Manchester Transmissions,Inc.,on Sheldon Road in Manchester. Since I knew your company?s reputation and the superb work that you do,especially replacing a transmission on my car,I had no doubt that Chuck was in good hands in having his car repaired at your facility. You have a long list of customers that I know and feel the same way in regards to your workmanship of high quality service and honesty. Today,after receiving a phone call from Charles stating the final cost of under $400 based on a broken part that needed to be replaced and NOT a transmission issue,Chuck is able to afford the cost of repair and is truly grateful.

- Subject: Manchester Transmissions: The Best!
My 22 year old nephew recently experienced a transmission problem. He was unable to engage the 2004 Malibu into drive. The car acted like it was in neutral. We first had the car towed to the Chevrolet dealer. The diagnostic fee from the dealer would have been $400.00. Rather than pay $400.00 just for a diagnosis,we decided to have the car towed to Manchester Transmissions. This was the best move we have ever made. The original estimate for a transmission rebuild was $2400.00. Jay was very patient with us and laid out all the options. 1. Transmission Rebuild. 2. Used transmission from Junkyard. Jay had already searched and found a transmission. This would have saved my nephew about $400.00. Jay's recommendation was to rebuild,because if the junkyard tranny was no good we would be responsible for the labor cost to remove and replace with a different junk yard tranny. We opted for the rebuild. Here is where it gets interesting: when they tore down the old transmission,they found a crack
in the fluid line that circulates the transmission fluid. Jay replaced the line and walla! the transmission operated flawlessly. Cost: $301.00. A less scrupulous shop would have either gone ahead and rebuilt anyway,or not even rebuilt but charged us for it. Needless to say $2400.00 would have been a major financial burden to my nephew. Thank you Jay and Manchester Transmissions for your integrity and quality of work.
