“I have reviewed hundreds of blogs on the internet to choose 33 useful blogs. And as an introduction to Cottman Transmission and Total Auto Care’s blog in the top 33 blogs, there are many reasons I chose to introduce Cottman’s blog to my readers,” said Tracy Moore Founder and Main Editor of “I like how the company has a long history, its wide scale of operations and a blog with practical articles, tips, tricks, and analysis for anyone interested in learning more about their vehicle. If the reader is a car lover, see the vehicle as their friend, then there is no reason not to visit Cottman Transmission and Total Auto Care’s blog. It’s really great.”

“We’re extremely proud of the recognition our blog has been receiving,” says Derik Beck, Cottman’s VP of digital marketing. “It shows that we’re reaching consumers who are looking for information to help them make important decisions about their cars. And we’re working hard to keep that information fresh and relevant.”

According to Beck, consumers often feel overwhelmed when faced with a repair decision. “Today’s cars are extremely complicated, and they can often find themselves in the position of having to make difficult repair decisions. The Cottman Man Blog explains these complex issues clearly, so they can understand the problems they’re facing and help make informed decisions. And it reinforces the trust that’s so important when working with a repair center.”

“Our goal has always been to provide consumers with the information they need to have a clear understanding about their cars,” explains Cottman President Randy Wright.

“We believe educated consumers will make smarter decisions when it comes to having their cars repaired. And that benefits all of us: the consumers and the Cottman centers.”

The Cottman Man Blog covers a wide variety of topics and is constantly being updated with new information. The site provides articles covering how to recognize when your car has a problem, how to find a qualified repair shop, and how to explain your problem to the technician to make sure you’re getting the most accurate repair possible. And it covers maintenance services, to let you know which ones are valid, cost-effective choices, and which would be better avoided.

While the Cottman Man Blog is a valuable resource for consumers, it’s just one part of the consumer outreach program that’s become the hallmark of Cottman’s online presence. Last year Cottman launched The Cottman Man Educational Video Series which won multiple awards:

    The customer service was concerned about the parking area for my vehicle for overnight early bird service.They called me to inform me they were gonna check back with me before any services on my vehicle were done with my approval which, made me comfortable to know they showed responsibility in their work.

    Fast, friendly, reliable and fair. I ended up having to get my town & country transmission repaired/replaced & my spark plugs replaced right before Christmas this past year & they said they could do it the next day if I could leave it that day. Well I didn't have a ride home & my other car needed a jump start since we hadn't driven it much. The owner not only offered to drive me home, but also jump start my other car so I could of get my niece from school. If that's not service, I don't know what is. They also ened up doing my 2014 escape transmission the yr b4. They were recommended by a friend & I would recommend them as well.

    I purchased a "newly" used vehicle and was concerned about transmission issues and they made sure I was taken care of. The staff was extremely friendly and polite, and not only did they provide me with all the necessary services I needed, they also educated me. I would highly recommend this location.

    Kevin and his entire staff are the best. I had a brake caliper fail and they took care of very quickly and for a great price. Since then, I had new flare fenders with led lights installed on my Jeep Wrangler. Same great service and value.

    I have been taking my vehicles to Cottman for the last year and I have never been disappointed. Kevin is the General Manager and I have known him personally for several years. This is an honest shop with quality work and great, trustworthy employees. Law Enforcement friendly, which is a major plus. It is hard to find a reliable place for vehicles now and days so skip the stress and take your vehicles here.

    Great customer service!! The staff was very attentive. A issue arose while they were working on my vehicle, and the mechanics diagnosed it and where back on track in no time. What I liked the most was that they kept me in the loop while they tried to find a resolution.
