“Dave Jr. and Dave Sr. were amazing. I originally went to King's Transmission for a routine transmission service. It was very hot day in Seattle and for some reason the car was dribbling transmission fluid, which I didn't know until they told me. The fluid wasn't low, the car ran fine. King's didn't put it on the rack, nor did they drive it. They just said I had a leak and could run out of transmission fluid at any time and was too dangerous to drive. They wanted to pull the transmission to check it. I found out from yelp this had happened before and to pull was going to be at least $650 to $1500. They verified this when I and when I asked them to top the fluid so I could get home, surprise, surprise, the fluid wasn't low. I went to 2 more shops who actually rove the car and they both said it ran fine. But they presumed a leak also.
Dave presumed nothing. They placed dye in the tranny to determine if there was a leak. Even after 500 miles, there has been no leak. Their thought is that there must have been a burp. Anyway they are the most honest and helpful mechanics I've come across and definitely are the only transmission shop I will ever use now.”
