Choosing a Transmission Repair Shop in Maryland
Here are some helpful guidelines to consider when shopping for a transmission repair shop in Maryland.
Worst-case scenario pricing
The facility operator should be willing to provide you with a worst-case estimate, before starting work on your vehicle. If the conversation seems vague, protect yourself by getting it in writing.
3 Year Transmission Warranty
The facility should provide a full coverage warranty. A 3 year warranty has become the industry standard.
Advanced transmission diagnosing equipment
The facility should have equipment specifically designed for working on advanced, late-model, computer-controlled transmissions.
Complex transmission problem troubleshooting
The technicians should have the skills, experience and aptitude essential in diagnosing today’s complex automatic transmission problems.
No pressure sales people
The staff should not pressure you into authorizing service until all of your questions have been answered.
Automatic Transmission Rebuilder Association
The facility should be a member of a transmission technical support affiliation, such as Automatic Transmission Rebuilders Association (ATRA) or Automatic Transmission Service Group (ATSG).
