Solutions Engineering – The Difference is in the Details

Most auto mechanics are trained to repair your vehicle to its original manufacturing spec, then there are a handful of auto repair and transmission repair shops in the country that have true engineers at the helm. While factory spec repairs will suffice on many occasion, with transmissions an engineered solution will prevent the problem from reoccurring by solving the inherent design flaw. Given the price of a transmission rebuild, this can be a monumental difference. Our industry is notorious for transmissions going bad again, so ask yourself, “Would you rather get it right the first time?” Thurston County Transmission has a rock solid reputation, just like our one-of-a-kind lifetime transferable transmission repair warranty.

Have a newer vehicle with transmission issues? We see this all the time, particularly in the Volkswagen Jetta, Mini Cooper and Audi A3. Click here to read about our new transmission repair – and find out why it’s actually better than new.


transmission repairs that last

Transmission repairs are notorious for being done twice, and most people have no idea why. There are two reasons, the first is that many low-end transmission repair shops use remanufactured parts – and what that means is that they came out of another transmission of unknown miles and may or may not hold up in your vehicle. At Thurston County Transmission we know the history an every single part we use and would never put something in your vehicle we wouldn’t put in our own. Our transmission repairs are always the very best quality you can imagine, and are fully warranted – parts and labor.read more
