I just had my minivan's transmission rebuilt at Summit. I am so happy we were referred here by our regular mechanic. It is so nice to have a place to take your car where you totally trust the people. They have been very helpful making sure the problem is fixed. Thank you Summit.

Wow! I am super impressed! What a less than steller shop could have made into a bad situation, Jerry and Sandy made into a small, not terribly expensive situation for me. Long story short, I just had my 1999 Ford Ranger into Drew Ford for other non related repairs and upon picking up my truck, they noted it had a transmission leak and was very low on fluid. However, they did not even tell me about it. I read it when looking over the paper work I got when I left. I was very concerned and after having a huge nagging feeling all day, I drove to work and got on line, and found Summit. After some research, I decided to give them a call and made an appointment for the next morning. I arrived about 930 am and as quick as he could, he took my truck out for a drive and got it on a lift for an exam. After a little bit, he took me out, showed me what was wrong and explained what needed to be done... I sighed and drove home, knowing I couldn't afford another big repair, but knew it was very serious. After making arrangments, I dropped the truck off the next morning and they quickly orderd parts for me.. Jerry let me know it would be about a day or so before all was fixed, but would keep me up to date.. With in a day and a half, I was all fixed and back on the road. I was quite impressed! He didn't try and sell me a new transmission or transfer case, just fixed what needed repair.. I am so happy and can say I am thrilled!

As someone who likes the convenience of my car, but not the upkeep, Summit Transmissions was a breath of fresh air. Jerry was upfront and extremely helpful in getting a part of my transmission replaced. I really felt like he went the extra mile for me, but I think they just call it customer service at Summit.Attempting to keep the long story short, after some unrelated work at the downtown Firestone, my car began leaking transmission fluid. Went back for a flush, and gasket replacement and still had a leak. On the next trip back, Firestone discovered there was a crack in my transmission....ouch! Firestone said they could not do the repair. My husband recommended I take my car to Hontech, which came highly recommended to him by a friend. Hontech informed me that the likely cause was a result of the unrelated work at Firestone - likely a mechanic either leveraged against it or slipped and cracked it while replacing the CV joints....double ouch! This is where I learn that transmissions require a specialist and Hontech sends me out to La Mesa to Summit. Had no problem getting the green light to get my car in the next day for them to have a look. After telling Jerry my situation and him sensing my hesitation to get this fixed right away (I was anticipating small claims court at this point), he offered to call Firestone. After a few minutes on the phone with them, Firestone agreed to pay for the replacement of the part of the transmission that was cracked. I walked away, took the bus home for the afternoon, and the car was ready the next day. Many thanks to Jerry and his team for making what could have been a nightmare into a bearable situation!I would like to point out, too, that Summit is located across the street from a bus stop that runs to Hillcrest, and is near a trolley stop, both of which are beneficial for a car shop.

Just got my car back from them and .. well.. OMG!! It runs like it's brand new!!I was having a lot of noise coming from a bad input bearing and I also had an oil leak. The part took a while to come in, but once I got my car back, it was totally worth the wait!! Jerry was honest about what was up with my car and although I couldn't fix everything I wanted to, the valuable information he gave me about the rest of my car will enable me to prioritize future repairs.As a former mechanic, I had a pretty good idea what was wrong just by the sound I was getting and sure enough, that was it. He didn't try to sell me any additional repairs, he just gave an honest assessment of my car's overall health and worked with me to get the most critical things done making the most out of the limited budget I had.Having been in this business before, I am well aware of what transmission repair costs run and this place is very reasonable. I'm definitely going to come here for future repairs. He did an awesome job!
