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 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.
I have 2 older vehicles that require considerable maintenance. Transmission Doctor has become my first choice for all my auto repairs and normal maintenance requirements. Brian always has time to listen to problems and explain what needs to be done and why. I fully recommend Brian's shop to anyone needing auto repair or normal maintenance work done on their vehicles. Brian has also been very helpful whenever I have questions about a repair project I am working on myself. Thanks Brian and good luck in all your endeavors.
I recently had Transmission Doctor find and stop an oil leak from my oil pump. The fairest price in town, competent, reliable and quick working. I'll be bring future work to Brian and recommending him to my friends and family.
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.
Brian installed my Richmond 4.10 rear end gears on my 2010 Camaro SS in half a day. All I can say is wow! These really transformed the performance and feel of my car. He did an awesome job setting them up and installing them--not a hint of gear whine and, after 6K miles of spirited driving, no problems! Thanks again, Brian!
First I like to say thank you to Brian and his staff for being there for me. I highly recommend Transmission Doctor. This people are awesome. Great attitude, great workers, fast and they get the job done.
My Suzuki Vitarra didn't have signal lights in the front..all the electrical cables were cut. I am so gratefull I found Brian online and headed over there and in a matter of hours my problems was solved. Thank you so much guys. May God Bless you with the knowledge always of treating people the way you do. Brian. Your attitude is what makes your customers happy and of course the results of that attitude.
After years of having my Acura serviced by the dealer, I switched to Brian and the Transmission Doctor. Not only do I get better service, I save a considerable amount of money. I trust Brian one hundred percent with my car and would recommend him to anyone needing work done on their vehicle. I am very glad that I learned about the Transmission Doctor because now I have one less thing to worry about.
WE HAVE USED BRIAN ON THREE OCCASIONS FOR OUR CADDYS. THE WORK HAS ALWAYS EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS. IT IS DONE IN A TIMELY, PROFESSIONAL MANNER AND THE PRICE HAS ALWAYS BEEN MORE THAN FAIR. I RECOMMEND THIS SHOP TO ANYONE WHO NEEDS SOME MECHANICAL WORK DONE TO THEIR VEHICLE....WAY TO GO BRIAN.
Transmission Doctor installed the transmission on my 11 year-old car 3 years ago and has been doing all the maintenance ever since. It is great to have reliable, honest people ensuring my transportation.
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.
My Mitsubishi eclipse was stuck in third gear for months. I was unable to find the right person to resolve the problem until a friend suggested Brian. I took the car to Transmission Doctor and they were able to fix the problem in a few hours for far less than what I expected to pay. People listen to me! I have never done customer testimonials before because I don't have time, however I took the time to write this testimony because I have to express how grateful I am for services provided by Brian and his staff.
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.
What else is there to say that has not been said already about Transmission Doctor in North Lauderdale Florida? Brian and his staff of transmission specialists were very professional, courteous, and very knowledgeable with a quick turn around time on my auto repair. When it comes to auto transmission repair in North Lauderdale this is the only tranny shop I will use from now on!
Honest assessments and fair pricing. He tells you what you need and what you don't need. Honest work. Quality work. You can't find that anymore these days.
I was referred to Brian at the Transmission Doctor and was thoroughly satisfied with the work done on my car. I would recommend this company to everyone. Great service and very satisfied with all work done on my car. It is very satisfying to know that you can trust that your vehicle is in good hands and they will get the job done at a reasonable cost.
Last year my transmission on my SRX went out. There are a number of transmission shops in the Greenacres area; however, I called Brian to see if he would do the repair or know of someone nearer in my area. Without any hesitation he arranged for my car to be brought to his shop. I will be forever grateful, the work was done when he said it would be done and for the price quoted.
Brian assured me that if anything was not as I expected, he would fix it to my satisfaction.
As per his request I brought my car back after a trip north, so he could road test it.
I could not be more satisfied; Brian cares, not only does he do what is an above expected repair, he cares about you after the repair is long done.
I would recommend Brian and Transmission Doctor to anyone with car trouble.
I CAN HONESTLY SAY THAT ALL THE WORK DONE ON MY CADILLAC AND MY WIFES CADILLAC HAS BEEN RIGHT ON THE MONEY. WE HAVE FOUND THAT BRIAN AND HIS STAFF SEEM T0 GET IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME. WE HAVE BEEN VERY HAPPY WITH THE TREATMENT THAT WE HAVE RECEIVED. THE QUALITY OF WORK AND GOOD SERVICE IS AAA IN OUR BOOK. BRIAN & KAREN BOBES LAUDERHILL, FL
I dealt with Brian directly after extensive research of mechanics in the area. A certified Goerend installer for diesel owners is a must and Brian proves to know much about the mechanics of todays diesel transmission. I intend to go back to Transmission Doctor due to great customer service quick and reliable work. If they can work on high performance diesel trucks they can fix any of your cars needs. I can't say thanks enough his recommendations for my 2006 Dodge Ram proved to be worthwhile on the drive home and feeling what an automatic SHOULD shift like. Thanks once again.
I had recently received an estimate from a dealer to work on my transmission and was horrified with what they wanted to fix it. I decided to look elsewhere and have always believed in business ratings provided by the Better Business Bureau. That's how I found Brian and am thrilled with the work that he did for me. From the very beginning, he was honest and straightforward with me and I'll never go anywhere else. Thanks Brian!
If you are looking for closure after shopping around for a transmission shop....go no further...Transmission Doctor offers HONESTY:they will only do repairs on your car which it needs vs. some of the disreputable franchises out there. Brian Amendolaro and his staff of technicians are highly qualified. The work they do is conscientious and meticulous.This is a very reliable and trustworthy shop. I feel as if I have know Brian for years.
Having been a service writer and manager in the auto repair business for many years, I know full well how hard it is to find competent and honest mechanics to deal with. Now that I retired, I take my vehicle to Brian and his staff for all services they perform. I can highly recommend this shop, and its honesty is beyond reproach.
You folks are the best! Thanks for the excellent service on my '89 Volvo. I wouldn't think of bringing my car to anyone else!
After being screwed over by 2 other transmission shops, I was referred to Brian, he repaired it right the first time. 5 spd manual in 1997 chevy S-10. Thank you Brian!
I highly recommend this shop, every diagnosis is honest. You will never worry about being taken advantage of. Each and every time I bring my car in I am impressed with the quality of the repair and I am always satisfied. I highly recommend Transmission Doctor.
Thank you very kindly for your letter, I am glad to know you appreciate the trust i place in your work.
You installed a transmission in my Toyota Cressida in 1999 and i never had a single problem with the transmission. in April of 2009, you installed a transmission in my Lincoln Continental and i have yet had any problems with the transmission. the vehicle runs great. I am happy with the work performed on my vehicle and how I was treated. I will be happy to tell a friend or family member about the good work you do at the Transmission Doctor!
Brian and his staff are supreme mechanics. They have been serving our cars for a long time and we trust Brian for all our cars needs. We will always go to Brian for the care of our cars.
Transmission Doctor is reliable, fair and mostly honest. He repaired my rear main engine seal and oil pan gasket in June 2011. While it was taken apart Brian informed me the driver's axle needed to be replace and for only the cost of the part he took care of it without additional labor cost. I'll return for future work and will recommend him to my family and friends.
I searched around for an honest transmission shop when my 03 BMW had a transmission failure, the dealership wanted $6000+ and Brian took care of it for less than half that and it drives great going on a year now. I have a second BMW needing some work and Brian will be taking care of it for sure.
As always i am pleased with Brian and his staff. they are the best mechanics i have ever seen. most importantly Brian is so honest...
I just wanted to acknowledge that the service was excellent, I was very pleased with the work that was done. Thank you, I will certainly be contacting you again, soon.

Transmission Doctor in North Lauderdale Florida? Brian did a great job on my 1994 f150 v8. I had a complete rebuild on the transmission and what a big change in overall performance. I am restoring the truck and there is more work to be done and you can make sure that Brian is getting the job.
Finally I have found a reliable and knowledgeable mechanic who I could trust! Brian was the most professional mechanic I have ever dealt with and I never met anyone who had a passion for cars.
I have a 2002 jeep liberty that i got from up state that was just in bad shape from all the snow and dirt. i called Brian from trans doctor and he maid it so easy to set up appointment to bring in my jeep the next day. shortly after i brought it there he call me and told me it was ready a few hours after. when i drove away from there shop it was like i was in a brand new jeep and i saved a ton of money I felt great and would recommend him to anyone and believe me they are the best in south Florida call right now!
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.
Brian A. & Transmission Doctor = TRUST. I had the pleasure of meeting him some many years ago. He is by far the most honest mechanic that I've met in all my 50+ YEARS. He has replaced the transmission on 3 of my family vehicles and they runs like a dream. We also go for regular transmission tune-ups and I am very happy with the service received from his staff. I am extremely satisfied with Brian and his staff. Keep up the good work.
Many years ago my car got stuck in REVERSE..... I had to call around for a mechanic...transmission mechanic that is. I was treated like a village idiot by all the mechanics that I spoke with. Brian addressed me with respect, explained my problem, and advised me what needed to be done. I allowed him to pick-up my car and he took it apart, called me in to see the problem. My husband accompanied me and was very impressed by Brian's knowledge and carside manner. He has worked on all of our cars and our kids too since then. I trust this young man with my (life) car and he has proven that he is reliable and honest. I am happy with Brian and his crew at Transmission Doctor. It was my lucky day when I met Brian Amendolaro.
Brian rebuilt the transmission on my son's 2000 Mazda 626, it was important to me the work was well done as my son was attending UF at the time and he was driving to Gainesville often back and forth. Since Brian worked on the car there have been no problems whatsoever and the car runs great and reliably.
BRIAN AND HIS STAFF ARE THE ONLY PEOPLE I TRUST WITH MY CAR. HE DOES SUPERIOR WORK..
Brian Amendolaro is a very honest and competent technician. He gives you a fair and honest price with no double talk. He is one of the best techs that I have met since I have moved here 14 years ago. A pleasure to talk to him and expert work with no damage to my Mustang and I am very fussy. I would and did recommend him and Transmission Doctor to my friends and family. You would be doing yourself a big disservice not to consider him first!
The best trans guys I know - I sublet all my tranny work to him. He is like the Rembrandt of transmissions. Go to him and he will not let you down; I promise you that he will treat your car as if it is his own. Best tech I know and ever met.
Brian and all the folks at Transmission Doctor exceeded my expectations with the the great service I received on my Mazda 626. I echo the sentiments of other testimonials in that the knowledge and care provided are second to none. My car runs terrific, shifts smooth, and I feel much more confident to drive it now. I depend on my car a great deal and I recommend Transmission Doctor to anyone who wants to get it right the first time!
When my wife's 1986 Chevrolet Celebrity Wagon developed a problem in the early 90's, my mechanic told me to take it to Brian. I did, and he rebuilt the transmission in 2 days and it has been running like-new ever since. Brian also rebuilt the transmission on my 1990 Olds Cutlass Ciera, and more recently, on my companies' 2005 Chevrolet Express G200 Van. After the Van's transmission was rebuilt it felt like I was driving a regular car and not a heavy commercial vehicle! Now the gas mileage is much better and it was all done for not more than the cost of a regular transmission rebuild--for which Brian charges a very modest cost.
I shelled out the front diff on my yukon on the way to my sisters last Christmas. Brian took the time to research a replacement part. The final cost was precisely the same as he quoted. He was concerned about getting my yukon repaired in time for me to return to Minnesota when I needed to get back. I had a conversation with one of Brian's employees. His employee said Bian was like a father to him. I run a body shop in Minnesota and I would say that Brian has the best transmission operation I have ever had the pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend this business.
Brian fixed my transmission and some other items in a very professional way. I appreciate all of the assistance that Brian provided and my car is running like new!!
A FRIEND RECOMMENDED ME TO BRIAN BECAUSE I WAS HAVING A PROBLEM WITH MY 1998 SATURN. I HAVE A STICK SHIFT, AND MY GEARS WERE STARTING TO HAVE A HARD TIME GOING INTO PLACE, SO I CALLED BRIAN. HE WAS VERY PROFFESIONAL, KIND AND HONEST. ALL I NEEDED WAS A GOOD TUNE-UP.HE DID A GREAT JOB AND DIDN'T TRY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE BECAUSE I AM A WOMAN. I WOULD RECCOMEND BRIAN TO EVERYONE!
