"Thank you Kevin for doing things correctly. Quality work, quality people...restored my optimism. "

This could have gone bad in so many ways. I had sworn off Certified Transmission in Topeka after a bad experience 10 years ago. I had fluid in transmission changed at another trusted shop I use. A noise developed but not because of the fluid change... mud from being flung off the wheel had snapped a plastic piece on the 4X4 actuator. Kevin and his crew diagnosed the problem, kept me in the loop on possible fixes, did some more diagnosing and found it was a vacuum line as opposed to transfer case or wheel bearing or something else. It could have cost me thousands, literally. It didn't. Kevin found the problem, gave me options to fix it, and repeatedly stated he DIDN'T want to sell me something that wasn't needed. I went from $2500(transfer case) to $250 because of a simple fix. I trust Kevin with my vehicle because he did it right! Great shop and great employees! Thank you Kevin for doing things correctly. Quality work, quality people...restored my optimism.

"When they test drove it they decided that it was not a transmission issue and told me to take it to a mechanic and they also did not charge me anything to check it out."

Went to shop due to a slight slip thinking it was the transmission. When they test drove it they decided that it was not a transmission issue and told me to take it to a mechanic and they also did not charge me anything to check it out. I have also had them service my transmission in the truck and will continue to take my vehicles to this shop.

Great service and great people to work with. After a new transmission installed a new noise developed. They took the truck back in and did a thorough inspection, and actually correcting a couple of items I didn't even know about, AT NO CHARGE! They found the noise fixed it and I was back on the road. I would recommend this shop to anyone and they gained a new customer with their expert service.

"It's good to know that Certified Transmission does business in an honest "old fashioned" way of doing business! "
Dennis Hatch - Burlington Kansas

My wife and I are both retired and living on a fixed income. We obviously did not want to purchase a $22,000 new car! We contacted Certified Transmission in Topeka for help with our car that needed a transmission replacement. A replacement from Certified was not immediately available. I asked: If I found a low mileage salvage yard unit, if would they put it in. Jeff said: "Certainly"... I found one in CT, and had it drop shipped to Topeka, and also purchased other parts needed to complete a reliable installation and had them drop shipped as well. Our car is back on the road again. It's good to know that Certified Transmission does business in an honest "old fashioned" way of doing business!

"Jeff worked together with the other shop, arranging it so that Certified did our work but it was paid through the financing plan we already have."
Connie Grilley - Topeka Kansas

Read Review  

Our car needed some transmission work, but we couldn't afford to have it done. Jeff explained to me that they have a financing option, but with me being on a disability leave, we would not have qualified for the financing. We have a financing/credit account with another shop, but they could not do the work for the same price. Jeff worked together with the other shop, arranging it so that Certified did our work but it was paid through the financing plan we already have. Now we simply have to pay our financing, and we have our car back.

"Right away I experienced the great customer service I read other customers write about."
Patrick Lauver - Topeka Kansas

Read Review  

I brought our van to certified based on the reviews I read. Right away I experienced the great customer service I read other customers write about. They put a brand new transmission in our van and just a couple days later the transmission went out, at no fault of Certified Transmission. With no hesitating, they brought the van back in and put an new one in. It is now almost 3 months later and we have no complaints. If a transmission went out in a vehicle we owned again, we would take it to certified. In this day, customer service should be priority if your going to do business with someone . And good customer service shouldn't be judged on if everything goes right, but how the business deals with things when they go wrong.

Disaster struck Monday, Oct. 6th when my friend borrowed my truck for an appointment in Kansas City Missouri. My transmission went out and stranded my friend in unfamiliar territory of Truman and The Paseo. Jeff was quick to assist by connecting with the Certified Transmission in Independence Mo. Within the hour my truck was towed to the shop and by Wednesday my truck was reborn. Fifteen days later they performed a check to make sure all was well. Thank you Jeff and Topeka, Certified Transmission for your excellent customer service.
