Had rebuilt transmission done, the car ran better before I put in cottmans transmission shop.

Transmission was rebuilt but they did a lousy job. Shawn was telling me it was something else, had nothing to do with transmission. Transmission ran better before I took it to cottman. They kept giving me the run around. Cottman transmission basically ripped me off and they wouldn't honor their warranty. Take your car somewhere else. I wish I would have.

User's recommendation: Do NOT go to cottman transmission.

Poor service

Cottman Transmissions in St Peters Mo has had my car for a month and a half. I was initially told a week turn around. After a month I pick my car up after having the motor replaced. The first time I started it that night I heard noise coming from the engine and I took it back the next day. Ted said it was safe to drive and to bring it back in a few days. It overheated and caused engine damage. Ted had it towed and promised as usual he would have it ready in a couple of days. Two weeks later and $1,000 in rental cars my vehicle is still not ready. This is the worst experience ever.

User's recommendation: Not recommended.

Getting ripped off by one of your trasmission shop located in Winston Salem

I brought a 71 Volkswagen Beetle transmission into your location in Winston Salem. I brought JUST the transmission. I did the paperwork with the manager. The next day, he calls me to let me know he needs to look on the internet for the parts he needs. He calls me the next week letting me know that he found the parts, and that with cost and labor, it would be a total of $1900. He told me he needed a $1,000 deposit before he would begin any work. I went down and paid the $1,000 with my debit card. I wasnt thinking at the time, but then it hit me that that price is outrageous and I am being overcharged! I called him and questioned him as to why the cost was that high, and he said it would cover all of the labor; but the transmission is a very small one and its not even in the car! I am very upset over this and would appreciate you guys looking into this matter. Thank you, Phillip Gates

The day after, he calls me and tells me that he has to go on the internet to find the parts he needs to fix the transmission. He then calls me a week later to tell me he found the parts he needed, and said it would cost me with labor $1900.00 dollars! He needed a $1,000 deposit before he would begin any work. I brought him the money, which i used my debit card, but after i left and made my trip up to New Jersey to my family, I then realized that the price he is charging is outrageous and i am definitely being overcharged. I am very upset about this, and would appreciate you guys looking into this for me. Thank you, Phill Gates (276)692-****

AVOID at all cost, take to dealer

I had a transmission "rebuilt" by Cottman in Kansas City, who is no longer in business. I spent around 3700 on my 2012 Ford Explorer which was a lot cheaper than the dealer (now I know why) . About a week later I broke down. I took it back they fixed it, it was never right, seemed to only have 2 gears and shifted incorrectly a lot. I brought it back in and was literally told by the mechanic "When you go to D, go to the lower gear first then back up." What? Sorry rebuilt = rebuilt! It should function as factory! I tried for a few more times to get resolution, owner dodged me etc. After parking the vehicle for a while and driving a more reliable junker truck, I donated it to charity. They know that you arent going to take them to court or have much recourse if you do. Bottom line, pay the dealer, or simply get a new car.
