The guys at Lodi Transmissions are incredibly honest and respectful. They did right by me today and I will definitely be taking my truck back to them for any future transmission work!

I am a car enthusiast and had lots of questions for Ron. He has the answers and can explain things to even a less mechanically inclined person. Straight shooter, courteous and 5 star business.

Lodi Transmission goes about and beyond Customer service and Vehicle service. I have a 17 year old Jeep Grand Cherokee that had multiple problems. Rear main seal in the engine, cooling fan that didn't work, the neutral switch didn't work, the transmission needed complete service and a few other things.

I am really impressed with the job that was done on all services in a timely manner and the quality of the repairs. Also with everything that was done it was very reasonable price. Thank You!!

Excellent and speedy service from everyone in this shop. Brought my car in recently to get fixed and everyone I spoke to was transparent about the issue at hand which I appreciated.

The dealership told me my engine had a major leak?

But the transmission were the codes on the check engine light?

I took it in they found the leak they had to pull off the top of the motor? The leak was 2 O rings on the transmission cooler?

After driving the car for 6 weeks after they fix it . The transmission is good!

Ronnie owns Lodi Transmission and he treats my 1988 Mercedes Benz 560 SEL with the same passion I do. Ronnie is able to fix anything for a reasonable price and a splendid result. I drive to Lodi just to take my cherished Merced to a magnificent shop run by the most honest and forthright automotive technician professional I have ever had the pleasure to take my classic ride. You will be pleased with your decision to trust your cars transmission to Ronnie and the incredible staff of Lodi Transmission.

About that transmission service you have been putting off...

I know your mechanical neighbor Quando Smackmakian has been offering to do your tranny service for some time and you have considered letting him do it. He's a sharp cookie and knows how to do most anything. After all, he does have a roll of duct-tape around his radiator hose and an empty can of BBQ'd beans for an exhaust-tip on his '58 Chevy truck. Well, I'm going out on a limb here, but if getting the proper temperature, getting the right amount of transmission fluid out of your tranny, getting the right tranny type of fluid back into the old rock-crusher, getting the proper/required NEW filter back in and hoping it won't leak, then check this out before you hand over that $100 bill to "Tranny-Tony". Here's what worked for me...

My Lexus LS 460 L had 85K miles on it and information and Lexus recommended full transmission service before 100K miles. I watched several youtube videos on this type of service and talked with friends and looked on line for the best procedure. The parts and synthetic WS Trans fluid is about $110. A local Toyota dealer said the trans "Flush" is $267, doing the Full service is at least double that. I called and visited about 3 local transmission service companies and found one that appeared to be busy, clean and able to answer questions about transmission service and care. I chose Lodi Transmission for all those reasons. Initial questions were answered with courtesy on the phone by Jose. The day of service I met the two owners, Larry and Ron. They were friendly and offered a ride, if needed, until my service was completed. Both owners explained the service and gave information about what was needed, how they performed their examination and how each step was carefully applied. The service took longer than I was expecting but, I was never felt like the technician/mechanics were standing around, chatting, smoking or drinking mochas. As the service was being completed, I paid the amount that was that was estimated and signed my credit card receipt. As the car was being backed out, Jose said, sorry the amount charged was wrong. Uh OH! This doesn't sound good; Yes, he said your car didn't require as much fluid as first thought, so there will be a refund of the amount that was not used.? Excuse me; you're saying the amount I agreed to is too much and you want to give me some money back... Well, yes. Toto, there are still honest businesses out there... Whew!

If You want a good experience for your tranny and who wants to be stranded along Highway 99? Then go see Lodi Transmission.

Thanks, guys. Great job!

A few days ago I went into this transmission shop with my 14 month old to get the 2 week check up done of my husbands rig. Everyone was absolutely wonderful! They let my child walk around their front office and even offered him chips and cookies. We were there for only about 30 minutes. In that time my toddler threw chips everywhere, ate two cookies and got extremely dirty. He basically destroyed the front office. I was getting ready to clean everything up, but was told that they would take care of everything! It was a pretty magical experience! Thank you so much Larry and Jose for helping me entertain my son! You guys rock! Also thank you for completing rebuilding my husbands transmission!! We are looking forward to going camping soon

Great Service. Honest. Friendly.

I brought my car in after seeing "transmission malfunction" on my dashboard. I brought it in on Monday afternoon and they diagnosed the problem, updated my software, took it for a test drive and had it back to me by 10AM Tuesday. Jose is very helpful and nice. I would highly recommend coming here if you want an honest repair shop. They will be the first place I go if I have any other issues down the road.

I came into this place about two weeks ago and I spoke to Ron who I believe is the owner and he was very friendly and was able to set me up with a day so that I could drop off my Firehawk in order to look at the clutch and also replace my valve cover gaskets which were leaking oil. 2 weeks later, I brought in my Firehawk and honestly I didn't think that they were going to look at it the same day, to my surprise though they did and I got a call in the afternoon that same day from Ron and he explained to me that my clutch was okay and that the noise that I've encountered is normal from the throwout bearing and also he mentioned how my other fluids were good and also that they can take care of the valve cover gaskets. I was very impressed with how they took a lot of care and consideration with my vehicle especially with checking things that I didn't even expect them to check and I was pleasantly surprised. 2 days went by and I received a call from Ron while I was working and he told me in a voicemail that my Firehawk was ready and to go ahead and stop by to pick it up. I came by later on after I got off from work just before they closed and when Ron went over my invoice with me I was pleasantly surprised again when he explained to me how they found another issue with my Firehawk which was the PCV hose and how it was cracked and how he went out of his way to call around and actually try to find the correct OEM one for it which really shows me the attention to detail that Ron and Lodi Transmission have and the care and consideration that they put into their repairs for their customers vehicles. Ron explained to me that they went ahead and replaced the cracked hose with a straighter one that was much stronger and he went ahead and gave me back my original one which I really appreciated Ron and Lodi Transmission showing me that individual care and consideration. It means alot. My Firehawk runs even better than it did when I first brought it in. I'll definitely be coming here more often. Thank you again Ron and Lodi Transmission.

Took my car here after hearing what I thought might be transmission issue. They checked it out quickly and determined it wasn't the transmission. Referred me to another repair facility and charged me nothing. Excellent customer service is rare to find but if I do ever need transmission work - this is where I'm coming!!! Thank you!!

An honest transmission repair shop here in Lodi. I dropped off my 99 Tacoma pickup in for a transmission shift problem. Thinking that it was internal in the transmission and a large expense. Jose called me a few hours later explaining to me it was just a minor repair. A shifter seat bushing had worn out..They replaced the bushing and serviced the transmission @ a honest price..No more problems. I just want to thank them for there honesty and professionalism. I would recommend Lodi Transmission if you have any transmission needs. Also they are AAA approved which does customer reviews to be certified....

They put a new clutch in my 2004 Pontiac GTO, and their service, and prices were excellent. Should I need any further drivetrain work, they will be the first place I go.

I brought in my recently purchased 55 olds 88 to have her checked out. We were greeted immediately by staff. Ron explained their procedure to test drive the car then give us his assessment. During the test drive Ron explained how older transmissions should shift. At the end of the test drive he put the car on the lift and did a visual check. Finally he said the transmission was fine. We asked how much we owed him. Ron said transmission checks were part of his service., no charge. We were blown away, who even does that anymore? We instead schedule a routine service anyways. He found the right parts for our 55 olds and we are waiting to get her the TLC she deserves. Professional nice guys at Lodi Trans. 5 stars! would give them 10 if we could.

Ron, the owner , diagnosed my 4-wheel drive situation with professional accuracy. Solved my problem in 5 minutes. No charge. Would highly recommend.

I found this shop to be very honest w/me up front. These repairs they specialize in are big ticket & the public is really at their mercy. Ron quoted me up to $1800 for rear end pinion bearings on my Dodge Durango depending if they found metal shavings in the differential. Bill came to $741including a brake light bulb replacement. They get busy & my downtime was maybe a week. But hey I got more time than money, I live nearby & they shuttled me home. SO GRATEFUL FOR NOT BEING TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF! THANKYOU LODI TRANSMISSIONS!!!

I live out of town and my mother had some transmission issues(she lives in Lodi) so I did a search on Yelp and found 3 businesses with good reviews, 2 of them wanted to charge a minimum of $90 an hour to check out her car, and Lodi Transmissions did it for free. After giving her a ride back home, and picked her up to bring her back to her car, did a thorough inspection of her car, found nothing wrong, and did all of this for no charge. And the most important, did not take advantage of an older lady. So this is a very trustworthy place to bring your car.

Great place to take for reliable work. This shop knows their business and does top notch work. I will continue to take my vehicle to them and have already referred my friends and family to them. I want to thank them for working with ATRA to help solve my problem that was caused by a Stockton transmission shop. Thankyou Lodi Transmission

Sincerely, Debra Lee and Al Lee

Great, honest service. I had an error message in my MDX, Lodi Transmission inspected the car, found nothing wrong. Sent me on my way and charged me nothing!

Months later I still have not had problems.

I had my F150 towed to Lodi Transmissions at the recommendation of my own auto repair place as they do not work on transmissions. LT front desk person, Christine, and owner, Ron, were great. I was in and out of there in less than 24 hours with my truck transmission repaired and serviced at a price that was less than I feared it would be. I hope I don't need Lodi Transmissions again, but if so... I have no worries going back.

Just had my 2008 Impala's transmission fixed here and Ron was up front , honest , and very informative . Caught a small problem before it was a major issue . Saved me thousands of dollars in future repairs. And credited me for for paying attention to the cars behavior and bringing it in before the problem basically dominoed into catastrophic failure . Very good business , I would recommend this shop to any of my friends , or family , he also guarantied his work for 12,000 miles .

I had to have major work done on my transmission. Larry was up front and honest about the repair. They did a great job and had it done on time. Highly recommended!!!


— Yelp User Review

Honest. Up-front and accurate diagnosis. We had been told by 2 other shops we would need an entire transmission replacement to the to on of $3000! My insurance agent reccomended Lodi Transmissions and so I called. So polite, so kind was Jeannie who is the owner's wife. She listened and transferred me to Larry, owner, who gave me the truth that he would not be able to accurately diagnose without seeing it. We had it towed and the news was that it was a part on the tranny, not the entire tranny. Bottom line is that it cost less thn half of the previously stated amount. They are just great people! The mechanic also answered another question of ours and it is just a simple fix my hubby can do. Amazing!

Free diagnostic check , good old fashioned service at a fair price

Lodi Transmissions does excellent work and are much more cost effective than the dealerships. Ron was courteous, upfront and honest about what my car needed to safely get back on the road. LT goes the extra mile for their customers and I will happily recommend their services.

The shop did a really good job repairing my transmission. The customer service was friendly and excellent. They suggested other things that should be fixed. After getting the car back, it seemed like I got a new car. The warranty that came with it was one of the best that a shop can give.

I have a 1991 Chevy Silverado that I call my 10,000 truck! Reason being I have had 4 used trannys put in it and all of them within a week are toast! They over heat then slip slip slip! Then I was referred to Lodi transmission! The tranny was overheating again I figured it was time to bite the bullet and just get a new tranny... not the case. You see I had a tranny cooler installed to prevent overheating.. well the shop that installed it installed a used cooler that was full of gunk which actually destroyed the other trannys! Lodi transmission found this issue right away and was able to repair and save this tranny quick! I'm so glad I was referred here. Awesome service! Thank you!
