Good People & Good Work

By far the best shop experience I have ever had. My car was making a humming noise that just kept getting worse. The do-it-yourself-er in me did not want to take it into a shop, but we just could not figure out what was wrong. Finally I caved and started calling around. I called up Lynn thinking he was going to tell me to bring it in so he could charge me for his expertise. Little did I know the great guy I was about to meet. He told me to stop by so he could take it for a test drive to diagnose the problem, free of charge might I add. He then told me what he thought was the problem and then took the time out of his busy day to show me exactly what he was talking about. He made sure I understood all of my options when it came to getting the problem fixed. Told me the cheapest way and the most expensive way and the pros and cons of each. He didn't try to pressure me into anything, which is what I was expecting from my experiences with countless other places. He quoted me for the job, which was the cheapest I found, and stuck to that quote. I dropped my car off Monday Evening and was back on the road on Thursday, even though an unexpected problem came up. He and his co-worker teamed up and worked late just so I could get my car back. It's really great to meet a couple of guys who actually care about their clients and take pride in their work. Discount Transmission definitely has my future business and I will be spreading the word to everyone I know.
Saved by a good guy.

My beloved 1996 S-10 manual pickup developed power train noises on my way back from Grand forks, N.D before New Years. I made the mistake of taking it to a local mechanic shop who took 6 weeks to bolt on cheap parts and give me the runaround. I found Lynn on the internet and live close by in Eagan and I limped it to him in hopes of salvation. Lynn not only made my truck feel like factory new, he offered me the opportunity to watch the process and the inspect the quality of the parts that were provided. The price was reasonable and fair.A transmission guy with a heart. Who knew?Terry S.Deerwood Drive, Eagan
The least I can do.

I have a 97' Ford F150 4X4 with 240,000 miles on it. Last year while on a hunting trip my transmission broke and I limped home at 34 MPH. It sat for a year because I knew how much transmission work cost. I had to do something with it so I started making calls again and that's when I found Discount Transmission. I was able to bring it in late in the day on the same day I called, I was given a quote that was affordable and held to, and when I asked about an unrelated issue at the time of pick up, Lynn spent another 2 hrs and took care of that issue for me too. I was so happy to finally deal with a business that was honest, knew what they were doing, took pride in their work, and really cared that I left there happy. Would I recommend Discount Transmission, Absolutely. Joel D.

The transmission failed back in February of this year on my 1996 Dodge Status with approximately 160,000 miles on it. By chance, I called Discount on a Sunday and got an answer. I spoke with Lynn who was able to get me in on Monday and back on the road by Wednesday of that week.In addition, while working on the transmission, Lynn noticed a motor mount that was bad and repalced it without charging for parts or labor. The car is still running strong.

Trans went out in my 2001 F150 4X4 @ 143000 mi.I shopped price, $3200 at Ford dealer, $2650 at trans shop I have done business with before. (they do good work)THe price I was quoted at discount transmission saved me a lot of money. I thought the price might be to good to be true, so I called a friend who is an ASE mechanic. I asked can Discount Transmission rebuild my transmission and reinstall it for the price quoted and make money? The answer was yes. 3 months and still shifting like it should.

Couldn't have asked for a better price. Always quick with the work at a great price. I would refer Discount transmissions to just about anyone.

I checked around for best prices, and no one could beat Discount Transmission. I am always leary about looking for the best deal, never knowing if you'll get great service too. I couldn't be happier with the work that was done and the price. As far as I'm concerned, Discount is the best in town! They've definitely got my future business.
