I have been doing business with Jerry at Matsco for 41 years. He has rebuilt and sold 16 transmissions to me over the years. They know what they are doing and have provided wonderful customer service over the years. Easily the only transmission tech I trust in Albuquerque. –Alex Grether, CEO Minerals Technology

I took my Honda Civic in because it wouldn’t shift into 4th gear. Jerry fixed the problem and got me back on the road. Great service.

Last year when my 2006 Cadillac SRX developed a serious problem, I was in real trouble to find a shop that would give me a straight answer and work with me on the ‘must do’, the ‘should do’ and the ‘do later’ repairs. After paying Jerry a reasonable cost to inspect my car, he walked me through the entire repair list and worked out the estimate with several variations, either way it was going to be a lot of money. He talked me back from the cliff when I asked “what is it going to take to get it to a point I can sell or trade” and he told me he would not do half the repair so that I could dump the problem on someone else. That was when I really knew quality of character I was working with.
He explained the cost of a new used car would likely be the same as the repairs, and that it was a good investment for the value of the Cadillac. I AM SO GLAD I LISTENED TO HIM! He worked with me to pay for the repair while he found the parts (which I know was not easy I tried for months on my own before bringing it to him). In the cases where they just could not be found he had a reputable machine shop make the needed part. the original estimate only changed after he included the 12 month warranty and explained every detail of his work.
All in all I trusted Jerry and spent a small fortune to rebuild my Caddy, and it is like having a new car again!
Furthermore, I want to add that I have seen kids come into Jerry’s office at 5 minutes to close with a car smoking in the lot and overheard him patently listen to the kid describe a run out brake pad, and zero oil engine. Jerry just calmly explained that they would be better off going to AutoZone and that it would be a lifetime investment in their own knowledge to learn to change pads and oil. Oh and yeah, the reason I was there so close to closing was because I was racing in after work like that kid.. But Jerry still made time to see me and update me on the work to my car while I made the weekly payment.

This gentleman is fantastic professional, and is the only shop you will ever need. We’re out on vacation and had to address burnt fluid ... we had fast and honest service. A true example of American professionalism. I thank you very much sir. And your crew are a shining example all other mechanics should follow.

Jerry and his guys did a fantastic job on my Expedition. Could not be happier. I will always take my vehicles to Jerry in the future. Highly recommend!

I had Matsco rebuild my transmission and later redo the brake on my vehicle. The service was fantastic.
Not only did they do a very good job on what they were tasked to do, they caught a number of problems that my other mechanic had missed. They kept me well informed and gave me options for the repairs. They also did only what needed to be done when they easily could have padded the bill. I will go to them rather than anyone else.

They treated us with respect and even helped me get the transmission in the back of my truck. They provided instructions on warranty and follow up inspections. 10K miles so far and no problems.

My car stopped going into reverse a while ago and I decided it was finally time to bring it in. My friend tells me about this place whenever I mention my car needs work. I tried them and really liked the service. They will be getting more of my business.

I had a problem where my car would not go faster than 40 MPH. I figured it was the transmission and brought it here for them to look at. They kept the car overnight and had no problem getting it fixed and back to me the following day. The problem turned out to be minor and I was very relieved.

Matsco did the clutch in my Camaro recently. They had no problem when I asked for an upgraded stiffer clutch and installed a centerforce for me. The difference is night and day the way the car takes off now. Everyone their was friendly and they work pretty fast.

The service I received at Matsco Transmissions was exceptional. They did an excellent job on my 2003 Ford Explorer. I would recommend them to family and friends.
