Comment: Rob, his son Robbie, and all their employees do great 👍 work ALWAYS. They are the only transmission shop I will use. Even tho they do other engine work, tune up and rear differentials as well. They are very kind and they truly care ❤️ about their customers. They have been around for a very long time here in Flint, and there us a reason for that. Because they do quality and top-notch work, and its done right the first time. Always. Thank you guys for everything you guys have done for my wife Jenny, our business, and me. God bless 🙌 🙏 you guys and many more years of business.

Comment: Living in Michigan for the last few years, I have yet to find a shop I feel I can trust and that cares about their customers. Until today! They worked very quickly on my exhaust, and at a very reasonable price to get me back on the road within an hour. Being a family owned establishment, and seeing their genuine care for their customers, I will definitely be using them for any future car needs and recommending them to friends of mine who may need a mechanic one day.

Comment: Found on google because of great reviews. Staff was really welcoming and friendly. They were good at breaking down everything so a laymen could understand. Was sent from another shop that thought it was transmission related but it turned out to be a wheel bearing instead. They were still able to fix within 48 hrs.

Comment: I highly recommend Cottman for your auto service work. I dropped my Jeep off for what I thought was an expensive transmission repair. They advised me that a simple repair was needed which cost a fraction of what was anticipated. Their honesty and integrity ensure I will be a repeat customer. Rob was very helpful and always friendly.

Comment: I had such a great experience at Cottman. I called and talked to Rob and Glen about what problems I had been having with my transmission. They were so happy to help and so friendly. I had my vehicle towed in one day and got it back the next. The price it cost me was more than reasonable and I’m back on the road again. Thank You Rob and Glen.

Comment: I recommend this business as a place to get repairs done. I though that I needed a new transmission and Rob told to bring it in so they can look at it for free. Within 24 hours they had examined the car and realized there were only some broken wires going to the transmission. What I thought was gonna be a 3 to 4k job on end costing me a few hundred dollars. Thank you for the professionalism.

Comment: Excellent service and FAST! Had them rebuild my transmission recently. Rebuild was done in less than a week, truck shifts like brand new. Rob was super friendly, helpful and very informative through the whole process. (EDIT) Had to drop a star off my original review. Transmission did end up failing within a couple months of the rebuild and it did end up taking a few weeks to find and fix the issue. The staff was very professional and explained everything to me through the whole process and everything seems to be working great.

Comment: Friday noon noticed on driveway car was leaking ATF. Called Cottman and Rob (part owner w/dad, family owned) said get me the car asap, were very busy, not sure if I can get parts this late in the day for a Ford, but well do our best. Car was completed by 5 pm, with new fluid lines!!! There was literally no parking spots as they were so busy that day. Unreal they were able to fix without an appointment the same afternoon!! Try that somewhere else on a Friday afternoon.... awesome service, people, and ownership with a can do attitude. They will ALWAYS have my business and anyone I can tell.

Comment: My 2016 Equinox has 230,000 highway miles. It started running rough so I stopped at auto store and had the codes read. It had a code suggesting the cam position actuator was bad so I replaced it, not a big repair but no help the car still running rough. The next thought was the timing had gone out and possible rebuilding of the engine (ouch $$$). Thats when I talked to Robbie at Cottmans, he walked me thru what he could do if rebuilding it was needed. I dropped it off still thinking I was going to need a costly rebuild. Robbie and his team looked the engine over and found one of the cylinders was not firing due to a very bad spark plug. They did a compression test which was OK then replaced all the spark plugs and one ingnition coil and the car was running perfectly. I cant thank them enough for the proper diagnosis, repair and fair price. I had my perfectly running car back in two days :). Thanks Again Robbie and Team!!!

Comment: This is my second time having Cottmans work on my vehicle. I will definitely continue having them take care of all my cars needs. If you want friendly, honest people working on your car, do not hesitate to see them. They were able to do my brakes, rotators, front axel, sway bar links on all 4 tires, clean throttle body and an oil change in a couple hours. Rob was able to call me back within a couple hours to tell me what the warranty company would cover, and what my cost would be. I am very pleased with how efficient they are, and how they actually take time to explain what they did to my car.

Comment: Robbie was courteous and answered all my questions. It’s refreshing to know that Cottman’s only repaired what was actually broken and did not try to sell me a repair that was not necessary. The cost of the repair was reasonable for what was performed. This was the first time I used them and would certainly consider using them in the future if needed.

Comment: Absolutely amazing from beginning till end. Originally took the truck to AL Serra, who botched it up the first time. Al Serra stated the transmission needed to be replaced but could not tell me why. The follow manufacturers recommendations and just replace it , with no known cause. Stated their techs were not trained to diagnose. So pulled my car out and went to Cottmans. From the beginning Robby was very courteous and very knowledgeable. He dealt directly with my warranty company and was able to find the problem. Recieved a approval for a replacement trans mission. As soon as he had the approval. They finished the vehicle in a day. Highly recommend them, they are honest,hardworking and know there stuff. I will definitely use them again in the future. Definitely two thumbs up for me

Comment: I took my 2007 H3 to Cottmans for my transmission. I was so happy with the professionalism and the time Robbie took explaining the repair and the options I had to fix it. Since my repair was done I have told many friends to go there for any transmission problems they may have. I TOTALLY TRUST Cottmans to be honest and fair with their diagnosis and charges. I will never go anywhere else.

Once I got the quote on how much it was going to be it ended up being alot more than I expected and my car just simply isnt worth the time or money. So these guys were cool about it and even brought my car back for me. Much respect to cottmans for their outstanding effort on my part. Thank you guys a ton! I would reccomend you guys.

Comment: Call Cottman if you are looking for HONEST, Knowledgeable and Fair! I just had my transmission rebuilt by them and some other drive train work. They were extremely thorough and up front about everything. Robby went over and above for me by keeping me up to date on the work progress and also finding me the best prices for the parts I needed! He is very knowledgeable and respectful when it came to dealing with my automotive needs. Very diligent on keeping the work moving to get my vehicle completed for me. Robby made everything about the work to be done very smooth from beginning to end! A BIG SHOUT-OUT to all of the guys working in the garage getting things done. I will never take my vehicles anywhere else! I highly recommend Cottman for all of your automotive repair needs! Thank You again Robby and the team at Cottman Auto repair and Transmission! You guys did an Amazing job!👍

Comment: They got the Transmission work done ahead of schedule. The truck runs great. I did not hesitate to tow my large enclosed trailer again. They have a great transmission builder who took care of the re-build. The shop manager was great. He answered my questions and provided a quote pretty quick. I was impressed with the shop and I dont worry about transmission issues now.

Comment: The shop did a good job communicating and looking into my transmission issue. When I called I was able to talk to knowledgeable people that understand transmission issues. They priced out parts to keep the costs as low as possible which saved me hundreds. The car drove perfectly after the repair. I was very pleased with the outcome. I would highly recommend this shop to others. Far better than my experiences with dealership repair shops.

These guys are professional and down to earth, so to speak. They were fast and kept me up to date with what was going on with my truck while in their shop. If I ever have any other issues I will not have to shop around as I found an honest transmission shop here with Cottman. Thanks

Comment: The engine in my Dodge Ram 2004 needed to be replaced. Cottman found one and installed at reasonable price and in a very professional manner. Very happy with the service I received.

Comment: Great service! Had my transmission rebuilt and then two days later my windshield wiper motor went out, so I took it back there. And Andrew and his team repaired it at just the cost of parts. And the transmission rebuild is excellent. I recommend Cottman Transmission to everyone for the auto service needs.

Comment: I had a ticking sound coming from my engine so I brought my car to Cottman Transmission not only did they diagnose the problem but they didnt charge me a fee like every repair place. They took care of everything even making sure I had transportation when the repair took longer than expected I highly recommend them to anyone needing work done on their vehicle. Very pleased

Comment: Thanks Andrew and the rest of the crew for standing behind your work. Although I was without my vehicle for over a week you all made sure it was safe and the problem fixed. Also went on an extra test drive at closing to make sure noise was not there. Thanks again!!!

Comment: So, last year we purchased a 2009 dodge charger for our mother during some hard times for her. A year later the transmission decided to die, luckily for me I had a protection warranty plan through Cars Plus. Little did I know Cars Plus is absolute garbage for a warranty service, after calling 3 Chrysler dealerships all of which told me they are unwilling to work with Cars Plus from previous issues with them I finally contacted Cottmans Transmission. Their manager, Andrew Taylor told me they work with them and to bring it right in. He personally contacted the insurance company and worked with them to cover as much of my cost as possible. A job that every other dealership was quoting me for around the 2,800 range was now only a couple hundred dollars because of Cottmans and their manager. Not to mention the job only took three days to get done where all other shops were saying at least a week to even look at it. Very safe to say I will forever be a returning customer because of the service, price and excellent customer service that was provided by Mr.Taylor and the Cottmans crew.Id give them 6 out of 5 stars if I could.Seriously. Use this auto shop.

Comment: I recently had work done on my 2010 explorer. They did an amazing job getting it done quickly, as well as being honest about not wanting to put a part on the car that didn’t look up to par. Andrew stayed in constant contact with us, always super friendly, which made everything easier. I would definitely return here to do business, highly recommend!!

Comment: Took my car in when it felt as if the transmission was “kicking” or slipping. Thought I needed a brand new one but turns out it was just coils and spark plugs that needed to be replaced. They resolved a problem I had for about a year, with a much lower price than expected. Andrew, the guy in the office, was very friendly and offered good advice. Fixed the problem in the car and it feels like brand new, runs great. Definitely recommend for others.

Comment: This shop played guardian angel for me! Ive never had such good care from any auto service facility. They wanted to make sure I was safe and that i would make it home as I was hundreds of miles away. And all at no charge!!! That is service that goes above and beyond and shows they care not about the almighty dollar but cares about helping their customers. I would highly recommend this place to anybody!!!!! Super, caring and friendly service. I left there feeling taken care of because they cared about me. They even called me on Monday to make sure I made it safely home.... Thats love

Comment: Andrew (manager) and Greg (mechanic) saved us big time!! We live in Northern Michigan and have been making several trips down state to pick our household goods. We have been loading our truck and trailer to the max which puts a lot of strain on our 2004 Chevy Avalanche 277,000 miles. This last trip to Flint we noticed power door locks cycling on and off automatically and RPMs would drop for about a second and thenrecover. I took the truck the local Chevy dealership and because it didnt have a fault code or check engine light they couldnt do much about it. I assumed the way it was acting it may have something to do with the transmission so I went down the road to Cottman and talked with Andrew. Knowing my situation (and it being on Saturday)Andrew got me in right away and Greg was able to tackle what the dealership couldnt/wouldnt do. Within an hour Greg had troubleshot the problem to a faulty ground wire on my engine. He fixed the wire connection and got us back on the road to complete our trip back up north. I spent 20 years in Air Force and have traveled aroundthe world and this is by far the best customer service I have ran into. I will definitely recommend Cottman Transmission of Flint for any type auto repair needs not just transmission work. Thank you again Andrew and Greg!! Outstanding job!

Comment: Andrew and the staff at Cottman Transmission were phenomenal! Very professional and efficient and were able to work with my warranty company to get all my repairs covered! I can not THANK YOU enough for helping this single mom with the repairs to my transmission. If ever needed again(which I hope not) I will definitely be going back to see Andrew and the staff, if you’re in need of transmission repairs please go see them!

Comment: In from out of town and I experienced a leak on an already repaired brake line from another shop. Cottman found a loose break line connection and tighten up the flare. The repair was minor so there was no charge. This is a stand-up shop and will recommend it to all my local family and friends!

Comment: I feel Cottmans went above and beyond to make sure my needs were met. My transmission randomly went out one day on my way home from work. When I called them I had a trip planned for that up coming weekend. They told me to bring it in and they would have me set to go. They did, and they sent a tow truck and no additional cost to pick up my truck. And for over a thousand dollars less than other quotes I found! I put nearly 300 miles between Thursday (picking up the truck) and Monday with absolutely no issues at all! Thanks Andrew and Cottman Transmission!

Comment: Cottman recently replaced the clutch on my Pontiac. I called them on a Thursday morning and they came out that day and towed my car to their shop. I received a call later that afternoon with a diagnosis and reasonable repair cost. They fixed it during the day on Friday and I was back on the road Friday afternoon. They also contacted me on Monday to make sure I was satisfied with the repair. No one like shelling out money for repairs, but it does help when you receive good service at a fair price.

Comment: Cottman Transmission is the place to go for all of your car needs. The Cottman crew is exceptional to work with! I have been taking my 1971 Nova to them for the past year and all of the work they put in for me has been way beyond my expectation. They have done for me engine work, transmission work (converting from 3 speed to a 4 speed), Suspension work ( new springs, shocks), brake conversion, and a rear diff change from 3.08 to 3.55 posi. and I couldnt be anymore happy how it turned out. Ill be taking my car to from now on. See you guys soon for an oil change.

Comment: I had an issue with a check engine light and initially went to a different auto repair shop in Flint. They were able to scan the system and identify a problem with the transmission, but could not tell me more than that. They told me that I needed to find a transmission shop to get my problem fixed. They also made a comment that implied that they werent too familiar with working on Mazda cars.I ended up at Cottman Transmission thanks to a referral from another auto repair shop in Flint. I couldnt be any happier with the outcome. Within a day, they were able to diagnose the problem, fix it, and get me back on the road. And they did this without breaking the bank. It ended up being only a sensor that needed to be replaced, but they were able to check all the wiring that connected to that sensor to make sure I wouldnt have any additional issues down the road. They only charged me for the initial diagnostic workup and the replaced part, not for any subsequent labor or time spent testing the electrical wiring, etc.Overall- I received knowledgable and honest service from Cottman Transmission at a very fair price. I will definitely return to Cottman if I have any transmission issues in the future.

Comment: Bought a new/used Jeep. I had it for about 5 hours only to end up with transmission issues. I had it towed to Cottamans. They did a diagnostic test and found major problems. I ended up having it towed back to the dealership since they agreed to fix it. Cottamans treated me more than kind and I would give them 6 stars. I highly recommend getting your transmission work done here!

Comment: This place was absolutely great if it had more than five stars I would have rated it a 10! These people were very knowledgeable on what I wanted to do to with my vehicle on top of it they gave me a no-nonsense fair price and estimate to do step by step and how they would do it to fix my vehicle. And on top of that they gave me two different options on how to go about it maybe save a little bit of money on one it was just a pleasurable experience all around all the employees were very nice and a ten toes they got my car inside a bay as fast as I could in this place was packed I mean literally packed they were working on cars left and right and getting them in and out and inspecting them after they got out I saw that personally, like I Mom and Pop Shop would I do! These guys were just absolutely professional courteous and attentive thats the best I can really say about this place I loved it I would definitely come back again and if youre going to go get some transmission work on your car I would go to Cottman Transmission just because they do care about the consumer and they know that when it comes to transmission work its not something you want to keep going and pouring your money into you want to do it right the first time and thats how they feel you can just tell and how they go about it they say were going to do it right the first time so you dont have to pay and pay and pay two three and four times like Ive had the experience at 7 places Im not going to name and fear of getting sued but I can say that this place was nothing like those other places at all! Just follow Dort Highway all the way down towards Grand Blanc and youll find that youre running to write its a very knowledgeable plays everybody knows where its at I stopped and asked a local business where it was at and they said oh yeah thats just down here go down a couple license right here so everybody knows about this place its been in operation for a long time give it a shot you wont be sorry!Sincerely,Eric Zudell

Comment: I had a really good experience with Cottman transmission in Grand Blanc. I dropped my car off to replaced my upper radiator hose and they fixed a separate automatic transmission fluid leak Iv been dealing with for a long time for free. Also they were the only place I found that did free diagnosis. I would definitely recommend this place to my family.

Comment: Cottman has been keeping me on the road for over a year now since they installed an engine for me on my truck. Even though the company I purchased the engine from sent me a bad one and took forever to send a replacement, Cottman was very understanding and honest with me. They took care of me and are still doing it now - with the same vehicle!!!! Whenever I have an issue, they explain the problem and the repair is done timely. Andrew and the Cotttman team have my business!!!!! Thanks for everything!!!

Comment: Ive had a 12-14 yr relationship with Cottmans Transmissions we have received great service from this location . They rebuilt the transmission and it has gone well over 100,000 since rebuilt. They do other repairs as well. So, if you are looking for a great place to have your car repaired , I highly suggest this location.

Comment: How many times have you been able to say that you thoroughly enjoyed a transaction involving an expensive auto repair? Well I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Cottman Transmissions, they did a great job of rebuilding my cars transmission ( purrs like a kitten now!) for a very reasonable price (about $1000 under the dealers estimate) and I just really liked the people there! They are the best!

Comment: I am very pleased with the service I got at Cottman Transmission.I was referred to Cottman Transmission by Muffler Man on Corunna Rd. The guys there said they couldnt repair the car but Cottman might be able to.I called on a Monday afternoon and gave them the codes for my 2006 Civic. He checked them and felt they could do the repair on the third gear solenoid without having to open the transmission.I dropped off the car that night and on Tuesday they called and gave me an estimate.The estimate was reasonable and they said the parts would be in Wednesday or Thursday.I picked up the car Friday night and the mechanic said 75% of the time this sort of problem can be repaired and the car will have no more problems. But 25% of the time transmission trouble will develop.Ive driven the car for 2500 miles with no problems.I was hoping to get my car back sooner but I think they did everything they could.They were very professional in keeping me informed, and the key drop service for after hours was very convenient

Comment: I was extremely satisfied with the help Rob and Andrew provided me concerning the issue I thought I had with my transmission. Rob and his staff checked out my truck and assured me that the transmission was ok. I felt they were very honest and took the time to address my concerns. I called first to see if I needed an appointment and I thought it was great that Rob took the time to talk with me on the phone to find out what problems I was having. I did not feel rushed at all at Cottman Transmission. Unlike some shops where it just seem that they want you to get in and out as fast as possible and dont really seem to care about the customer at all, just the money. Cottman Transmission has fair prices and fast service, I would definitely recommend their shop to anyone.
