I thought I had written this review earlier but I don't see it. Mike rebuilt our transmission in our Honda Odessey May of 2013. He explained everything very well. He was very responsive and we were very glad we came to him instead of the dealership. I would not hesitate to go to him again if the need arised. I would recommend this company.

We have a 2005 GTI with transmission probs. VW wanted to fix it with a new $7000 transmission. Northgate rebuilt it like new for $3000. A friendly, yet professional company. I highly recommend these guys!!!

Mike went above and beyond to make sure I received the best service and repair that my truck needed. He even handled negotiating with my warranty company. My truck runs like new. Do NOT go anywhere else to get your transmission worked on. Thanks guys!

My 2003 VW convertible Beetle transmission was done for. I took it to the dealership where they quoted me $7150.00 for the repair and my extended warranty would NOT cover all of it. Needless to say, I was devastated. Mike and his team reviewed my car and Mike assured me he could get the work done within what the warranty covered. I'm one happy lady! Highly recommend Northgate Transmissions. Truly a wonderful customer service experience from beginning to end!

My daughters 2002 Saturn SC2, with 113,000 miles, had a completely shot transmission. Northgate rebuilt to better than new condition in 2 days. She says it shifts and drives beautifully now. Great work, good prices and communication from Mike Y. Highly recommend them. Troy S.

Mike did a great job on the repair of my Subaru SVX. Mike was a professional and answered any questions I had. He explained and kept me informed throughout the job. The bill was within the estimate given at the beginning of the job; there were no surprises at the end. He is a true asset to the community. Thanks for a job well done.

I was having difficulty with my truck so when I dropped it off for an oil change at oil change place, I asked the head mechanic to take a look at my clutch and let me know if anything jumped out to him. When I picked my truck back up, he informed me that my clutch was shot and that he would fix it for $700. I decided to take my truck to Mike to see what his opinion was (since he has done great work in the past) and he fixed the real problem (which was not the clutch) for less than $150. Mike was courteous, fair, and ethical (and the work was perfect - the truck runs like new). I can't recommend Mike highly enough.

I have always worked on my own vehicles I am very particular and very UN-trusting of any shop. Hands down Mikes place is A+ Last time anyone did anything on my car was 97 No better shop around.

The tech offered to unlock our car for me so I could pick it up after hours. The car was clean and even had no fingerprints. They do great service detail, offer a rental. I would tell my friends they're honest, have a reasonable price and are very helpful.

I have an 85 Porsche Carrera that I use to only trust to a dealer. When I decided to get my clutch repaired at Northgate I was a bit concerned. Mike kept me updated almost daily and followed up with emails and pics. Although I bought this car used, I can't imagine this transmission was any better when it was new. Awesome job! I couldn't be happier. Thanks again!

Quite simply, a great experience. Service was confidently explained in great detail and I was back on the road quickly. They even washed my car :) This was my first experience with Northgate Transmission, and now I wouldn't take my car anywhere else. Mike is a guy you can trust.

I had the misfortune of having transmission trouble with both cars at the same time. My neighbor mentioned good results with Northgate, so I gave them a call. Mike gave me an honest estimate, at least a third lower than the dealer. He also fully explained how he would address the problem in clear, concise terms. He and his team resolved the first problem promptly and at the lower end of the estimate. Needless to say, I took the second car there ASAP with the same results. Both have had the quick follow-up, and all is still well. I hope I never have to go through this again, but if I do, I'll call Mike right off the bat. I can't recommend him highly enough.

My car was done quickly and correctly. Northgate Transmission even replaced some engine mounts that Honda was going to charge more money for.It was included in what I paid to Northgate Transmission. I saved over $2000 by taking my car to Northgate!

Thank you Mike for your friendly and efficient service.You kept me informed every step of the way. There were no unhappy surprises. My 10 year old SUV sounds and runs like new!! The 2 year warranty is icing on the cake.
