Transmission Repair in Norfolk, VA

For some shops, the terms “repair,” “rebuild,” and “replace” all mean the same thing when it comes to your transmission. To them, it basically means you’re going to spend a lot of money… whether you need to or not.

It doesn’t have to be that way, because many transmission problems are the result of something that doesn’t really require a complete rebuild or replacement. But that means that the technicians working on your car have to understand how the transmission works, and how to fix it when it stops working.

At Cottman transmissions are our main thing. We’ve spent years learning exactly how they operate and how to diagnose problems right down to their source. Sometimes that means you need a transmission; other times it means you don’t.

That’s good for you because at Cottman we’re dedicated to making sure that you never pay for a transmission unless you really need one. So we’ll work hard to find out exactly what’s causing your transmission problem, and we’ll provide a repair strategy that makes the most sense for you, and your wallet.

Of course, sometimes that may still mean you need a rebuild or a new transmission. But if that’s the case, you can be sure it’s the best recommendation for you, based on your specific transmission problem. For an industry standard description of “repair” vs “rebuild” of a transmission click here

      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.
