"I cannot say enough good things about Dan and the team at Cottman. They helped me through a very difficult warranty claim from substandard work at another shop. Dan worked with me to help coordinate the parts manufacturer, the supplier and the original repair shop. My work was done timely and the quality has been fantastic. Dan went above and beyond to ensure that I was able to get my warranty claim resolved and not have a huge expense for the services. I will be back anytime I need work done, and I highly recommend anyone else choose Cottman for auto repairs."
"AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME.....Very happy just picked up my car after transmission repair. Bring truck back to have it worked on as well ! THANKS GUYS 😀"
"Having had an unfortunate occurrence with a Chevy Venture while traveling out of state, I did have the good fortune to contact Cottman Transmission in Columbia SC. They corrected my transmission issue in a very short time, at a very fair price and I could not have been more pleased with the entire process. Would highly recommend them to anyone!"
"The owners are some of the nicest people I've ever met. All of the auto mechanics are 100% honest and will take care of you. Price is not necessarily something you want to cut corners on with getting your car worked on. You want someone who's honest that's not going to overcharge you or lie to you and this place will never do that!"
"Vw beetle was melting ground wire from alternator to my battery. Brought it in to cottmans they tested my car discovered my alternator was bad. Went ahead and paid 600+ to have it replaced. Since then I have had to replace my serpentine belt 3 times take car to another mechanic to discover that cottmans charged me and replaced my alternator with the improper one for my vw beetle. So now I have to pay to have the right alternator installed. Thanks for nothing cottmans..."
