"Boy are we glad we chose to do business here first, the staff was very polite and eager to find a solution. My boyfriend had been having issues with his 2006 Honda manual transmission, and after a few failed personal attempts he decided to take it to Cottman Transmission! As it turns out the master cylinder had not been adjusted properly. They fixed our issue right away and the car runs better than it has since we bought it a few months ago. This establishment was quick and courteous with affordable prices on other work we may need in the future. If you are looking for an honest and honorable mechanic go to Cottman!"
"Customer first. That's how I'd explain my transaction with Cottman. I worked with John during a unique car situation that was miss-diagnosed by another shop, after the quoted me $2,400 for the fix. John and his team properly diagnosed the problem and looked up my vehicles warranty to determine that it was under warranty. When they found out, they dropped the vehicle off at a dealership for me! Honest quality, what more can I say."
"My transmission came on during my drive from Buda to Austin and I panicked. Took half a day off from work assuming the worst and had my credit card ready. Called ahead to let them know I'd be coming and talked with Boston Don. After arriving they hooked the car up to the sensor and several things showed up. Had a few ideas and then it became a joke. On me! I hadn't tightened the gas cap completely when I filled up 2 days prior, which set off all the codes. A quick rescan with it tightened and I was good to go. Don pointed me in the right direction of some items that should be looked at in the next few months and sent me on my way. I'm so very thankful for the honesty and good laughs we shared during my visit to the shop. Highly recommended!"
"DO NOT GO HERE! This place has terrible workmanship and doesn't stand by their word. I took my classic Jeep by with a minor shifting problem that turned into 4 months of chaos and created more problems that are STILL NOT FIXED. They replaced parts that didn't need replacing, they didn't put the parts on correctly, and they even threw away some existing parts that needed to be put back on(like the inspection cover of the transmission). They road tested my vehicle on south congress in 4wd instead of 2wd. They intentionally put in the wrong mileage on their invoices so they wouldn't have to stand by a warranty. I had to take my vehicle to Eagle Transmission(great guys) for them to diagnose what was wrong and write a report stating issues found and potential problems that were never figured out by Cottman. They don't document parts they buy or services done on your vehicle so they can state it wasn't their fault or part. These guys are completely unprofessional and WILL NOT STAND BY THEIR WORK. They are truly CROOKS. Save yourself the time/money/heartache and take your vehicle somewhere that is actually trusted. I brought them back my Jeep so they had the opportunity to make things right, and was told my only recourse was legal action and they didn't have to fix my vehicle at all. I hope people read this review and understand how painful it is to spend over $2,000 in repairs and be worse off then when you started truly because of incompetence."
"I just had an amazing experience at Cottman Transmission on Congress. My daughter's 2002 Honda had been leaking tranny fluid for months. The geniuses at Firestone charged me over $100 to inform me that the tranny was leaking at the forward seal. My daughter has very little money so i dragged by feet for months fearing a seal replacement bill upwards of a grand. I finally took the car into Cottman this morning where John and Kevin put the vehicle on the rack, showed me the potential leak locations (several), and explained that they would clean the area to allow them to pinpoint the location of the leak. I agreed and asked for a recommendation for lunch while I waited (more on that later). When I returned, I was happy to learn that the source of the leak was simply the cooling line fitting on top of the transmission. Instead of paying over $1000 for a seal replacement, John only charged me $30 for 4 quarts of tranny fluid (cheaper than Pep Boys!) and did not charge me anything for labor! Needless to say I am very grateful and feel like I just dodged a $1000 bullet! This was a great experience and I highly recommend these guys! And the Mexican joint across great people and food!!"
