I was satisfied, but... When I first picked up the car, there was a dash light on that I hadn't seen before. I did drive it for about 5 miles and determined that I that I couldn't get it to switch into the higher gears. Took it back to the shop, they confirmed the dash light shouldn't be there and so I left it. A few days later, they called and had had to take it to a dealer to have the computer reprogrammed When I picked up the car the second time, no dash lights and the car ran great. It's been two months know with no issues. Even with the hiccup at the initial pickup, I'm satisfied with the service. Note: There's also a one year warranty on the service that gets extended by 6 months if I bring the car back at 6 months for a free inspection.

This review is for the Elmhurst location ONLY. I drove the full size 4x4 chevy truck in 'limp in modeand quot; (drive and 3rd not working), trans making internal scraping sounds (145k miles) Friday mid morning. The person there, Rich's diagnosed it as failing clutch (in the middle of trans) and it needed to be taken apart to get to the part. gave me a rebuild price which was several hundred dollars less that nearly competitors. They called saturday that a solenoid kit was necessary as metal pieces contaminated the existing solenoids . Rebuild included a torque convertor, overhaul kit and solenoids. It was ready Monday morning! So friday noon in and monday am out. Is that FAST FOR A REBUILD- JUST OVER THE WEEKEND! 12month 12000warrenty with $65 filter change service at 6000mi. Its a good sized operation (possibly over 12lifts) located in an area of Elmhurst with several new and used auto adealerships next door and across the street- so they are definitely set up for good volume- most of the racks were full with regular-plated autos though.My mechanic recommended them- as that is where he send his trans work. When i looked at the reviews of the other nearby shops, yes they were positive- but- reading the reviews, the prices were $500 to $1000 more for similar work on smaller autos.

I think they have a fair price. When it comes to their customer service, they do a fast turnaround on the work and they have a good reputation. They are pretty good.

Description of Work
I take my vehicle to King Transmission Co for transmission work. The last time I was there, I thought it was a transmission problem but it was not. They looked at it and evaluated it and sent me to somebody else who could fix the problem.
