Here’s what some of our Lynnwood, WA customers are saying about us:


I took my 1971 Chevrolet pickup to their shop because I thought the transmission might be starting to slip. They checked and said the transmission was fine but there was a cylinder that was misfiring. They did not charge me for any unnecessary repairs and didn't even charge me for the diagnostic work. They were professional, courteous and honest. I would highly recommend their shop.

I took my Suburban in with a broken transmission. The company fix the repair and the truck worked well. The transmission blew again little over one year later due to the fact that was pulling I have a trailer that exceeded the capacity of the truck. Even though the warranty has expired Trans Service went ahead and made the repair for free.

My transmission broke, didn't know what was wrong with it. Decided we would remove the transmission and take it to daves. He got into it and called to tell me what the problem was and gave me multiple options on what to do. So I had him replace the broken parts. A few days later I went in paid him, picked up my tranny went home installed it and bam my tranny is working great! So pleased and excited. I would definitely recommend daves transmission service to everybody! He's awesome, nice, honest, ect. I promise you won't be disappointed.

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.

t is true that they are a little overwhelmed with business at this shop but there is a reason for that. They know their stuff. If you want your transmission fixed fast and expensively, go to the major shops like Honda or Toyota. They will just bolt a new one in and charge you twice the price. If you can wait and have patience, Dave will fix it right, charge you a fair price and stand behind the work. That is rare these days...

Sid Roberts Google Review


Dave's Trans Service gave my truck a full and great tranny service, at at very affordable cost.
He and his team are fantastic.

Jeff Wentworth Google Review


On time and on budget for the work quoted (new clutch). I called around and Trans Service had the most reasonable quote. The owner was very friendly.

Kathleen Barber Google Review


Outstanding service. They have done work on two of my vehicles over time. Very high quality work and the costs are very fair.

Michael Bowman Google Review


Trans Service did an excellent job rebuilding my transmission fast and for a reasonable price. They are very knowledgable about trannys and have wonderful staff to deal with. I highly recommend Trans Service!!!

Daniel J. Murphy, Jr. Google Review


Great service, honest people that know how to service your car right the first time and the only place I will have my clutch or transmission repair done.

Ron Lackey Google Review


I called in regards to a 1987 Suburban with a 700R4 transmission and a NP208 transfer case. The truck would not move and I could move through all of the gears. Started to worry and made a phone call. Was helped by Dave Jr. who said to try to engage 4 wheel drive. Also read posts online saying to try 4Low. Putting the transfer case into 4Low before starting the engine got me rolling again. Many thanks to Dave for giving me an idea to try before taking this thing to someone only to possibly get gouged for a transmission rebuild. Thank you for all the help.

I shopped around for weeks trying to find a good price for my transmission to be rebuild, after a very long and aggravating search I found Trans Service. They were so easy to deal with and affordable!! I would recommend them for sure!!

This is a great place to get the transmission done. Very, very knowledgeable owner that gave me more than one option. (Hell, he even gave me tips to make it not happen again!) Had a rebuilt transmission put in, and then drove on it across the country with a 3 horse gooseneck trailer. Twice. Its still perfect. Save yourself from the hassle, start here.

Barbara L. Yelp


Honest, trustworthy, and timely.

Dave Sr. is an absolute DOLL - I wish I could keep him in my pocket.

Terah B. Yelp


Got my new clutch put in on time and at the amount they originally quoted. The owner was very friendly.

One of the tool ol' guys - so grateful we still have such honest and dependable people like Dave and his employees. I live in Seattle but was really glad to drive up there after hearing how good he was from another car repair guy (a great Volvo guy who only works on older models, not mine). I generally trust word of mouth, and remember seeing this place many ears ago, driving past - and wondering if it was really good since they specialized just in transmissions, which I thought was pretty cool. So, I ended up going up there, and having them look at my new car, since the tranny seemed 'slippy.' They were happy to make an appointment and they test drove it, only to tell me that this was how my type of transmission behaved (not as tight as my old Mercedes) and I should have nothing to worry about, at least for a while. They were happy to go over my car a little with me, and really took the time to explain things, such as no need to flush the transmission, and such. I left feeling confident that this place would never try to sell me anything I didn't truly need. They are one of the good old places that goes by the motto of saving you money and gaining a customer - THIS is the way to do business, even if it is hard to find people this honest any more.

Go here.

Very honest and trustworthy mechanic. Had a few vechiles serviced here before we moved out of state and were very sad to lose this shop. Very reasonably priced and service is performed quickly.

Dave's Trans Service is a unique and kind of interesting place. You have to look for a place to park, won't get a cheery receptionist and will wonder for a moment if you should leave and go to the dealer. But not to worry, these guys know transmissions.

Dave Sr. walks around in what almost seems like a lab coat except stained with transmission fluid. But the guy KNOWS transmissions and is a master at his trade. They have done three jobs for me and one for a friend in the last year and the jobs were done flawlessly. My daughters Honda had a transmission gone and when we picked it up, it was like new. No oil drips, no noise just fixed. My son was told at the local Toyota dealer that he needed the whole rear differential replaced at the cost of about $2500 plus tax. Drove it straight to to Dave's Trans Service and we got it out for $460. It was only wheel bearings and I think Dave knew that before he even looked at it.

In summary, if you want a hip waiting room with WiFi and a latte go somewhere else. However, if your transmission needs repair, this is the old fashioned mechanic that knows his beans. Work with the issue of getting it in and leaving it for a week. But expect it will be fixed right and at a fair price when you leave. Can't promise perfection but for me, it has been 4 times happy.

My Geo Tracker finally decided that it was time to die. Big clunk, car stopped, unmovable. I knew it was the transmission already, as I had been driving on borrowed time. I called around and ended up having it towed to Dave's. I was up front with Dave Jr. and said that I didn't know if my car was worth putting a bunch of money into it, as I had already put a bunch into it the previous year and the car was a 1995 Geo.

Once they opened it up Jr. said that there was quite a lot to do and they hadn't even looked all the way yet, and agreed that it wasn't worth the money to fix it. Instead, one of his mechanics likes to purchase and fix cars that come in sometimes, and it just so happened that he was interested! They offered me the same price as the pick n pull place in Lynnwood, without losing any additional costs for the other place towing it away or changing their mind on the price once they arrived. It was super convenient and saved me a bunch of cash.

I sincerely appreciated their honesty!!

The only hassle is that they are so incredibly popular, and very, very busy, because they are so good and so honest - so it took a while before they could get to my vehicle.

Purrs to Dave's!

Kathy L. Yelp


Old fashioned type service. Dave Sr. is an old fashioned mechanic, who will work with you to get the repair done in an economical way, if necessary.

Used this shop twice, highly recommend and satisfied. Takes their time, but you get a good job.

Cal L. Yelp


When my transmission suddenly went into failure I called my local auto shop and they referred me to Dave's Trans Service. I called them up on a Monday morning and was able to take my car in shortly thereafter. The repair work was done and I was able to get my car back within four days. While quicker would have been better for me I understand that this is a small shop and a family business. In fact it being a small shop and a family business is one of the reasons I was happy to work with them. Both father and son were polite and friendly whenever I spoke to them. In closing I would absolutely recommend Dave's Trans Service, but be aware you'll probably have to do most if not all of the dialing.

After getting a quote for transmission work from a popular full service auto repair shop on the Bothell Everett Highway, I looked around for other options. Discovered Dave's Trans Shop in Lynnwood. They performed a full rebuild at half the price of the other place, and they clearly know transmissions. Plus they have a wonderful assortment of classic cars and trucks around the shop. Highly reccommend Trans Shop.

Roger A. Yelp


Bottom line: this is an honest and fair shop. They fixed a problem with my low miles 2004 Ford Ranger for a reasonable price. This is not a super-slick, super-clean operation. That is, there's a LOT of cars on the property, it's kinda messy and dirty, and he could use some office help. But, I would still go back because he ultimately does very good work. No fast talking. No BS. Just honest repair. Very good experience for me.

Jay O. Yelp


I have not tried every transmission shop out there, and given the excellent service and results I've had from Dave's I won't be. I would NOT consider going to anyone else. The service, care, and backing for their work has been phenomenal. Dave and Dave Jr. are serious about getting your car fixed, and their price has always been fair, whether it's been our Ford Ranger, our GM Blazer or our several older Mercedes. Having transmission issues never makes it a good day. Having the Daves available to fix your transmission eases the pain significantly.

Waldemar K. Yelp


These guys are the best! They had our RAV4 for months trying to repair what Toyota screwed up, and when they finally gave it back to us, they charged us fairly, discounting all the overtime they had to put in to get it running again. They have always been honest, up front and friendly, even when it was obvious our car was driving them crazy. Don't even waste your time taking the car anywhere else.

David C. Yelp


Amazing people who run an honest business. They have saved my life more than once.

Katie B. Yelp


I LOVE Dave's. Both daddy Dave and Dave Jr were great to work with. Had a problem with our pretty new Jeep and he totally didnt rip us off. Way better experience then taking it to the dealership. He took his time and really fixed a problem no one else could seem to and it was cheap.
