How Frequently Should My Transmission's Fluid Be Changed?
Transmission Doctor recommends that our customers in the greater North Lauderdale area change their vehicle's transmission fluid every 3 years / 36,000 miles. The transmission technicians at Transmission Doctor recommend bringing your vehicle to our North Lauderdale auto repair shop once a year for a transmission fluid change. If your vehicle is older, or you use it for hauling heavy loads and/or towing around the North Lauderdale area, it may be required more frequently. To determine if a fluid change is needed, Transmission Doctor recommends an external diagnostic service. An external diagnostic service for a transmission includes checking the level and condition of your transmission fluid, a road test around North Lauderdale, and putting your car on a lift at our shop to check your external transmission controls and to keep your transmission, and your vehicle, performing properly.

To my surprise from the moment I arrived I was treated with respect and given a fair estimate. I have to say I expected a bottom rate job because of the estimate. I could not have been more wrong.
Vanessa Croteau of Wellington Florida
"As a single mom, I was expecting to walk in and get taken advantage of. It was not the first place I had gone too. To my surprise from the moment I arrived I was treated with respect and given a fair estimate. I have to say I expected a bottom rate job because of the estimate. I could not have been more wrong. My truck runs AMAZINGLY. And they went above and beyond to keep me up to date on the status of my truck and two follow up calls to make sure I was happy and my truck was running well. I would recommend Transmission Doctor to all my friends & family. THANK YOU! "
They're good, honest, hard working, people and their work is first class.

"I first met Brian and his wife when I needed a clutch installed in my 1994 Ford F-150. They're good, honest, hard working, people and their work is first class. I highly recommend them for all your repairs."
Brian sounded honest and straightforward, and I found nothing but positive comments and a great BBB rating.
Susan Currington of Jupiter Florida
"I was about 100 miles from home when my transmission failed. Rick Case Honda quoted 5 days and $5,300 for a re-manufactured transmission and a new computer, which they said was 'totally messed up.' They even told me they'd have a salesman call me about some great deals on new cars. No thanks. I started calling other transmission shops, and got more and more confused. Some sounded great, but had tons of online customer complaints and bad Better Business Bureau ratings. Then I called Brian at Transmission Doctor. Brian sounded honest and straightforward, and I found nothing but positive comments and a great BBB rating. I had my car towed to Transmission Doctor and they fixed it for about half of what Rick Case wanted, in only two days. And they didn't try to sell me a new computer that I didn't need - or a new car!! I'm really glad I found Transmission Doctor. "

I am very glad to have found someone qualified and honest to keep our car's transmission running reliably.
Ozzie Minton of Plantation Florida
"Brian is an honest, knowledgeable, and qualified transmission mechanic. Don't hesitate to bring your car to his shop. We have a well kept 25 year old Toyota that my son is currently using for college. On a recent trip down from school, the car started making odd noises from the transmission. Brian identified the issue by hearing it, and fixed it promptly, at a reasonable and as quoted price. The car has been running fine now for months and many trips to and from college. I am very glad to have found someone qualified and honest to keep our car's transmission running reliably."
I RECOMMEND THIS SHOP TO ANYONE WHO NEEDS SOME MECHANICAL WORK DONE TO THEIR VEHICLE.
Karen Bobes of Lauderhill Florida

Brian is extremely honest with a great personality I've at least three vehicles to him since and have never been disappointed.
Lauderdale Lakes Florida
Perry Nicholas of Lauderdale Lakes Florida
"I'm like one other person I don't have the time or patience to post but reading these comments I had to say something. Almost 10yrs ago I took 1992 Mazda to his shop he ended up replacing the computer for one third the cost. It took him several days but he didn't stop until he found the actual problem. Brian is extremely honest with a great personality I've at least three vehicles to him since and have never been disappointed. "
When looking for a mechanic you want honesty, quality work, and affordablity and Brian gives you all of this.

Steve L of North Lauderdale Florida
"Last year I bought a used car and boy did this car have problems. I first found Brian because this is the only Transmision shop with an A+ rating with the BBB, and I definately can see why they have an A+ rating, The first job he did was rebuild my transmission he was very reasonable did quality work and offered the best warranty of any Transmission place I could find he also did it very quickly, which was an added bonus. Did I mention the Transmission still works great!... now on to the next problem I have a 2002 Saturn or should I call it a Stall-urn... in anycase this problem is a bit complicated to diagnose especially since it didn't report an error code most of the time.... Brian could've just started replacing parts and charging me mega amounts of money... but he didn't, instead he took the time to make sure something was broke before he fixed it, he has saved me so much money that he makes every other mechanic I've ever been to look bad..... I feel like he is part of the family. When looking for a mechanic you want honesty, quality work, and affordablity and Brian gives you all of this. I have told everyone I know about this place and that is the best compliment you can get.....Thank you Brian for being so great"
I would definitely use him again and/or recommend him to friends and family.
Bill L of Tamarac Florida
"I brought my 2002 Dodge Intrepid to Brian, et.al. because I knew it needed serious transmission work and I wanted it looked at by someone that specializes in that work. Very responsive and understanding. He paid attention and explained it all as I asked him. Very professional. Three times in and each time he made the deadline he proposed. I would definitely use him again and/or recommend him to friends and family."
