I've had the car back for a couple of weeks now, so I can write my review totally assured. Without a doubt I would recommend Jim Dowell Transmission to anyone that asked me concerning any transmission problem. My clutch went out on my Scion tC with a manual transmission but I was able to make it to the shop. Justin diagnosed the problem immediately and correctly. I got the car back the following day after a complete clutch parts replacement. A spring broke and wedged itself between the clutch and the plate. When I picked the car up, James and Justin the tech, knowing that I wanted to learn more about the operation of the clutch, showed me the old parts. I appreciated that. Use this tranny repair shop with complete confidence.

Hands down the best auto shop I've ever been to! Honest, reliable and very fast service! I would highly recommend this business over any other shops in the Sarasota-Bradenton area. Thanks again James & Justin!!

Brought my 06 Ford Crown Victoria in because it was struggling to find 3rd gear. They did a full transmission rebuild on it in 2 days and took it on a 100 mile test drive to verify that everything was working as it should. When I arrived to pick it up they told me to take it for a drive before I gave them any money to be sure I was satisfied I have never had a repair shop do that for me. They even replaced the gas they used on the test drive. Car was done quickly and efficiently and they gave me daily updates on progress. Transmission work is expensive there is no way around it so if you are going to spend the money you want to know it will be done right. The rebuild has a 1 year warranty and was done at a fair price. I picked it up today and my girlfriend and I took it on a 200 mile road trip for Labor Day weekend and it performed flawlessly the whole time it’s like a brand new car.

James (Jim D.) was extremely nice and helpful in my automotive problems. He was attentive and upfront in regards to his diagnosis of the situation. I would recommend him if you are in need of transmission repairs. Regards, **********

These guys are phenomenal, I normally do all the work on my own vehicles and am nervous about taking my cars to shops. Communication was great with them, they were incredibly friendly, and know what they are doing, we broke down on our way to visit family in Florida and even though there was a holiday that week, after the holiday they had the transmission in my Hemi Commander out, rebuilt and back in in three days, they even gave us a fantastic price to do the job. I’m normally not one for reviews, and even though we live all the way in NE Ohio, these guys left such an impression for their services I had to leave a review and sport one of their stickers on the back of the Jeep!!! Thanks again for the help when we were stranded!!

If your in the Sarasota area there is simply no better place to take your automobile. What a find this place was. Was a luck day when I stumbled across James and his shop. They’ be done numerous transmission repairs and replacements for our business at White Line Transport as well as our personal vehicles. They just did a 4-speed swap on my 1970 Nova from a turbo 350 automatic. Excellent and conscientious work that you can trust.
