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.

Brian always has time to listen to problems and explain what needs to be done and why.

Jim Currington of North Lauderdale Florida
"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."
Since Brian worked on the car there have been no problems whatsoever and the car runs great and reliably.
Coconut Creek Florida
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 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 depend on my car a great deal and I recommend Transmission Doctor to anyone who wants to get it right the first time!

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 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. "
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! "
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."
They're good, honest, hard working, people and their work is first class.
