It is good to know that Certified Transmission does business in an honest old-fashioned way of doing business!
I could not ask for better service. They were so fast and prompt and kept in touch with me every step of the way.
I will not be going anywhere else in the future. Fast, courteous, and done correctly.
I had it towed to Certified Transmission here in Topeka and shortly after they had it back on the road again in no time. I highly recommend this transmission shop, and the crew and management, they are top-notch!
I would recommend Jacob and your transmission shop to anyone!
Randy at Certified's Topeka transmission shop was very open and knowledgeable about the issues I was having with my transmission and explained everything to me that they were going to do.

Chris did anything he could to help make it a fair price. I would recommend Certified Transmission to anyone.
It's nice to know that there are salesmen still out there that truly care about people and take a few minutes out of their day to lend a hand when they really didn’t have to. Thanks Certified Transmission! Five stars.
Jeff worked together with the another auto shop in Topeka, 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.
The repair shop he recommended was very professional, as well.
