Vast Expertise in Advanced Computer Controlled Transmission Diagnostics
Imagine spending thousands of dollars on a transmission repair, only to find out later that it was unnecessary. Unfortunately, once the transmission is removed, there is little chance you’ll ever know. There is an abundance of evidence that “expert” transmission diagnostic mistakes such as these are widespread occurrences among service centers. After being told they needed a transmission replacement, many customers bring vehicles in to us, only to find out that the transmission was never the problem. I want to be fair to those facilities; some diagnostic problems are very complex, and engine problem symptoms often mimic those of transmission problems. Here is where our extensive computer controlled transmission and engine diagnostic experience prevents costly errors. Of the transmission misdiagnoses that we see by technicians, most are the result of inexperience or disregard for industry accepted diagnostic procedures for transmission problems. With our decades of experience, this is not an issue at Suburban Transmissions.
Advanced Parts and Procedures for Remanufactured Transmission Rebuild
Of the cars and trucks that enter our shop, over 86% failed due to transmission design flaws. Service industry associations have spent years researching the root causes of transmission slipping and failure. From their findings, they have produced redesigned transmission parts and technologies to alleviate these issues. The companies that produce these products include Sonnax, TransGo, Superior, and Translab. These upgrades, when used in conjunction with NEW original equipment dealer transmission parts, provide a more durable product than remanufactured transmission that use rebuilt components and assemblies. Using advanced repair and transmission rebuild procedures allows Suburban to produce the finest products and an outstanding warranty, often longer than most of our competitors.
References and Referrals
You may have received a reference from a friend or colleague or a referral from another auto shop; please let them know we appreciate them for putting their reputation on the line, and in return we will make sure we do not disappoint you or them. We do not have official relationships or contracts with the auto service shops and businesses that refer customers to us, and we do not provide referral fees, kickbacks, or bonuses of any kind to these businesses or their employees. If you are not happy with our services, we know that they will certainly hear about it, and refrain from sending us referrals in the future.
We would like to take some space to express our sincere appreciation for the online reviews, references, and referrals from our customers. Our lives seem as busy as ever, which makes dedicating time to publish a review a chore, and we want you to know it really does make a difference. I stopped all paid advertising in 2009, including yellow pages, community phonebook, Valpak, internet, etc. I do not have marketing or sales representatives. We all realize that money spent on advertising is ultimately added to the price of the product, which passes to the customer. I pay absolutely nothing in advertising, so you pay nothing for advertising as a consumer. I do all my own website work using Orchard CMS, which is why it looks somewhat Spartan; I took all the photos and personally wrote every word on this site.
A business’ reputation is an important consideration for a consumer, especially in the automotive and transmission service business. Unlike retail, where you can buy and return an item within a period of time, the quality of transmission service you receive has lasting consequences. Some transmission repair shops provide a small list of handpicked references from a large group of perhaps hundreds of customers. Suburban, however, can provide a multitude of references from other local automotive service repair shops who have recommended Suburban Transmissions to their own customers for years.
Transmission Repair Cost and Warranty Period
Shopping by phone gives you the more control, but many transmission shops will not give out repair service costs without first having the problem diagnosed. It is true that you will need to have the transmission problem properly diagnosed, but you should also ask shops about their prices and warranty to get a good point of reference. The best way for comparison is to ask how much it would cost to replace the transmission altogether, if required, and the warranty period. Make sure the shop manager is willing to put it in writing. At Suburban Transmissions, all major transmission repairs carry a full 4 Year, 100,000 mile warranty. Many shops do not offer a long-term warranty, which reflects poorly on the confidence they have in their own product. Since longer warranties have shown to attract more customers, the question arises as to why some other shops don’t offer competitive transmission warranties.
