Can You Tell Me What A Limited Slip Differential Is?
Occasionally one of our customers in the North Lauderdale area will ask a technician at Transmission Doctor what a limited slip differential is. We tell them that when their vehicle is turning around a curve, the outside wheel turns a larger radius than that of the wheel inside. This results in the outside wheel turning faster which is allowed by the differential. In a limited slip differential system, clutches or a locking mechanism is used to facilitate power and drive both wheels. This system was designed to enable both wheels to turn at varying speeds in turns, but have them both pulling when driving straight. The advantage of this is that both wheels are pulling even when one wheel may lose traction.
Brian always has time to listen to problems and explain what needs to be done and why.

"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."
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"
Since Brian worked on the car there have been no problems whatsoever and the car runs great and reliably.

Luis Clark of Coconut Creek Florida
"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 is extremely honest with a great personality I've at least three vehicles to him since and have never been disappointed.

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. "

Terrence Brown of North Lauderdale Florida
"When the transmission in my Grand Marquis started to fail on me right before my multi-state trip, I was worried that i would not have the car fixed in time. The team at Transmission Doctor not only got my car fixed with a rebuilt unit, but the car is actually performing better than it ever did. Great work, workable price, and awesome service. Thanks for everything"
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."

Brian Hines of Coconut Creek Florida
"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!"
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. "
