Our Pledge


We strive hard every day, as we have done for the last 30 years, to be the best value repair shop in Houston.  With honest work, fair prices, expert technicians and the latest scanners and technical support, our goal is to earn your trust and repair your vehicle promptly and professionally.

A1 American Transmission & Automotive pledges to all of our customers that we will not remove a transmission from a vehicle in order to complete a repair unless absolutely necessary. Additionally our shop promises to diagnose transmission problems for all of our local and surrounding area customers in an honest and expert manner. Our shop strives to provide prompt and courteous service to all who visit our automotive transmission repair facility in the hope that you will come back to us for all of your automotive automatic transmission repair needs.

We are one of only a few American Transmission Rebuilders Association (ATRA) member shops in the Houston market.  This membership requires us to comply with their Code of Ethics.

Do all transmission problems require a complete transmission rebuild?

Many transmission problems can be fixed by a minor leak repair, electrical sensor or solenoid or adjustment.  In fact, approximately 50% of transmission problems do not require a transmission rebuild. When you call shops in the Houston area asking for a rebuilt transmission before any testing and diagnosis is done, some will not take the time to diagnose your vehicle properly.  Instead you will get a major transmission overhaul whether you need it or not, wasting your hard earned money.

Our commitment is to save you money by testing and diagnosing you car or truck before any repair is performed. We offer you a free external check and computer scan that will indicate the next step in the repair process. We do not over diagnose or sell you what you ask for by phone or online without confirming it is what you really need.

If it turns out I do need a transmission repair, will you have options I can choose from?

If it turns out you do require a transmission rebuild, some of the solutions we present may include:

  • Repair your transmission (if feasible), complete with limited warranty.
  • In special cases (if repair is not feasible) we can locate a replacement transmission to save you money.
  • Overhaul the transmission to original specifications.
  • Our best option (with the best warranty) is to rebuild your transmission to current specifications, performing all updates recommended by the manufacturer.

My car has transmission problems, so of course I can’t drive it—how can I get it to you for diagnosis of the problem?

We offer free tow service with major transmission rebuild.  We can also assist you with any other mechanical problems, and will be happy to answer any technical questions you may have.

Remember, help is just a call away 713-218-0990.
