    My wife and I both take our cars to Metro Transmission. They understand customer service. Their staff are friendly and courteous. Their business practices are founded on honesty and integrity. They will take care of your car's tranmission professionally and at a reasonable price.

    Once again, Metro transmission to the rescue. I brought in a last minute repair, was quoted a price, I'm convinced the job was more then what they initially expected, made the repair (on short notice) and stayed true to their word. took me home in the morning and offered to pick me up. I can't say enough good things about this company, and they will always have my business

    Had first trans rebuilt couple years ago with great communication on exactly what i needed and wanted for a very heavy towing situation. I was very impressed with the extra mile Metro went for me to produce the bulletproof tranny that i needed. Every time there after i returned for service on my vehicles it seemed like everyone remembered my name and treated me like family. Just had Metro rebuild my wifes tranny on her Honda, leaving me with the same pleasure and confidence in their workmanship and thoroughness. Nice to see people who care about my vehicles as much as i do. A+++ across the board! Thanks Metro

    Honest, friendly, speedy. These guys really know their stuff! As a female, I felt completely at ease working with Metro. Never talked down to or talked into something I didn't really need. A real down to earth, family-owned and opereated business. I would recommend them to all my friends and family.

    I have been dealing with them for 10 years and have found them to be very honest and trust worthy. If they say something is broken you can be sure it is. It will be fixed at areasonable and fair price.

    Absolute 1st choice for transmissions in N. County

    I had them swap out the old and do modifications for new 5 speed w/overdrive tranny in my classic 69 Mach1. They treated that car with kid gloves and it all works perfectly. More recently they put a new clutch in my 05 Tacoma. Their price was better than either of the 2 Toyota dealers I contacted for exact same job and parts. I highly recommend them for their quality and honesty and pride in their work.

    I had the transmission on my truck fail rather spectacularly the other day, and really didn't want to take it to the dealer to get fixed. A good friend told me about Metro, so I looked them up online. Nothing but glowing reviews; it seemed almost to good to be true. Surprise, surprise: It wasn't - these guys are awesome, and lived up to every part of their billing. Polite, conscientious, thorough - they go out of their way for you, they do the job right, and their pricing is more than fair. I can't reccommend them highly enough!

    I had a terrible ordeal with another transmission shop a couple years ago. You should read about it here if you are having transmission problems: This site won't let me post the URL, so do a google search on "Avoid Co Op Transmission in Santee" and you'll see my story of that title. Metro Transmission totally took care of the horribly botched rebuild that Camino Transmission did. Metro had to replace many more parts than they anticipated, and they probably didn't make much money as a result, but they were always forthright, thorough and honest. I just got my two year service from them today on that transmission, and all is well. I highly recommend them.

    Just took my Ford Van in for a tranny problem, took the time to troubleshoot before jumping into a whole new tranny. Ended up needing a new transmission, but they took the time to show me the damaged parts and expedited the repair. Got my van back the very next day. Nothing fun about spending big $$$$ on a new transmission, so you might as well do it at a place that you find trustworthy, extremely knowedgeable, and above all else very courteous. So I guess it was kinda fun?

    Although we had a minor setback (due to parts company, not Metro's fault), our truck was serviced superbly. We were kept fully informed all the way. We have taken other cars there, and will take them all back.

    After replacing my planetary gear set and rebuilding the tranny, the gear set failed. I returned and they completely rebuilt it again at no charge and did it in one day. These guys are good!

    Awesome service and they stand behind their work. A factory part that they replaced failed, and they replaced it again free of charge. They could have made up a story and charged me again, but they didn't. Truly honest business who treats your car as if it were one of their own. Customer for life!

    Metro is the only place to go when you need help with your transmission. Don't waste your time going to the big corporate places or dealerships. Go to the experts that give you the same service that they would give a member of their family.
