My experience with Trail Transmissions was excellent in every way. They are very knowledgeable, professional, and helpful. The work was completed on schedule, and for the price estimated. They took care of everything, and went well beyond what was required, for no additional charge.

Trail Transmission is the place to have your transmission rebuilt, hands down! Jerry is a great person and contributes a lot of knowledge to this company. I had a conversation with Dean about building a strong transmission, I told him about another transmission shop online that could do what I wanted, he assured me he could what i proposed and more. When I went to pick up my vehicle Ty and Dean where on the shop floor, they said take it for a test drive. When I returned it did exactly what they promised it would do! Can't thank these guys enough, they have built a few transmissions for me and friends that I have recommended and all been happy with the results. Very friendly environment!!

I own a Food Truck - French Me LLC and last Sunday my transmission went out. Another food truckers referred me to her mechanic Collin which referred me to Trails Transmission. He said they could definitely do the job with quality and in a timely manner. I called up Jerry and told him I had 4 big events coming up and needed my truck ready by the latest Friday morning. Jerry not only arranged the towing of my food truck, he had it done by Wednesday. I couldn't ask for better customer service and the best turn around time. I will highly recommend his services to my food truck family. Thank you again!!!!!

Great service. Extremely knowledgeable. Best price for rebuilding the transmissions on my 67. Definitely will be taking my other vehicles there. While I was waiting, several previous customers came it and talked about how their cars were serviced and could they look at their other cars as well. Very down to earth people. They maje you feel like family.

Great Service! If you need transmission work completed use them. They were fast, thorough and professional. I would reccomend this shop. I got an honest evaluation and there were no surprises. They even worked with my warranty company. If I could give 6 starts I would!

Highly recommend. Great customer service and very competitive prices with other transmission shops in the area. Straightforward and prompt service. We needed a complete transmission rebuild, dropped it off late Wednesday afternoon and it was ready to roll with a warranty by 07:30 Monday morning. Jerry is extremely helpful and from I’ve see very trustworthy. It’s a local business so they’re definitely more inclined to be honest than a chain. The shop is clean and tidy. I wouldn’t think twice about giving friends or family their phone number.

Took my 1984 Trans Am into these guys based on recommendations from both of my neighbors who are in car clubs. I can't begin to describe what a great experience this was. I gave them a call set up a time to come in with the car and they quickly took care of me and gave me an accurate estimate and timeline. My car was ready a day ahead, at the quoted price with no pressure of adding anything else on, on time and it drives like a dream. My shifter was missing a hold down clip and he took the time to go scrounge through his spare parts box and installed it for me at no additional charge. It's these little things that these guys do that will keep you coming back! I highly recommend Trail transmission to anyone who's looking for a transmission service.!

Jerry at Trail Transmission was as honest as they come. Another transmission shop said they needed to pull the transmission to find out what was wrong with it. Jerry said he was almost certain it wasn’t the transmission and that there was something wrong with a cylinder misfiring. Saved me lots of money! Thanks Jerry.

Jerry was AWSOME. This company is tied to their community and from my past experience as an executive director of a chamber of commerce these are the businesses we all need to support. In my opinion he's my top choice and to all who live permantly or are winter visitors these are the businesses that keep Apache Junction strong and that's what we need.

I called for information and pricing and before I could get thru my question was abruptly told they couldn't do anything till next week. That wasn't my question by the way. Business must be good if that's how you handle potential customers. I guess i'll be looking somewhere else.

Jerry and his team do great work. Had a rebuilt manual transmission done with them a few months back and works like new all at a great price. Also brought in my old Ford Expedition 2003 and checked it all out for me. These guys are not here to snow you. I would recommend them especially for older vehicles.

These guys are where all the other shops refer the hard stuff to. They're pretty competent and reasonably priced. You have to drive the Apache Trail to get there however. I've taken service there 3 times and highly recommend them. I'm from Washington state and these guys have helped me take care of my Arizona childrens' cars, since I'm so far away. Thanks Trail Transmission. Remember that freak hail storm while I was visiting your shop? It happens wherever I go...

I had the transmission in my 2014 ram 2500 rebuilt here. I was always kept informed on my trucks status from day 1. I was given a number of options throughout the process and they had the truck done quickly even during the holidays. Overall very pleased.

Brought my Ford F-150 in with transmission failing and all warning lights flipped. The guys asked if I had recent work on radiator because they pointed out a linked close line. Said that was the cause of overheating and fix the line for no charge. I was so impressed they didn’t try to sell me a Trans I didn’t need. That was it since brought back my daughters car for work. Good to see that there are still honest shops around town.

Great service, they inspected the job and it was going to be more than the original quote. Dean called and explained the work required to fix the issue and the additional costs. Job was done in less then 5 hours , I will use them for any transmission issues I might have in the future.Pleasantly refreshing to deal with professionals !

I've had a number of transmission shops work on a variety of cars over the years and I must say Trail is top notch. Accurate diagnosis and a fair price for a complete rebuild on a custom F100 with a Ford AOD transmission. Truck acceleration is greatly improved and shifting is excellent!Highly recommend the team at Trail.

I talked to Jerry and made an appointment . I took the car in today and they drive it and put it on the computer. Nothing showed up and Jerry said to drive it and if my problem gets worse to bring it backThey are very honest and just dont try to take your money. I would definitely recommend Trail transmission. The diagnostic check was free. Thanks Jerry..I'll definitely come back.

Great experience taking my Jeep in for transmission issues. They looked it over and got back to me quickly with what the issue was, how much it would cost and how long it would take. They delivered on all 3! I even took my other Jeep over that was making an odd sound in what I thought was the transfer case. They again quickly diagnosed the issue And had me up and running again quickly and reasonably priced!

Fantastic service and FAST! I had my truck at ford for a month waiting for a transmission..they gave me stories about how one got lost in transit, another way stuck at a warehouse in Phoenix and the third one they ordered me arrived damaged and looking like it had fallen off the truck and then they wanted me to pay more for a different transmission..are that point I had already called around to get quotes from different places and the time frame it would take for them to get it done.. Trail Transmission did the job for $500 less than ford originally quoted me and had it done in less than 24 hours.

Transmission Repair

First, we’ll properly diagnose the problem with your transmission. After determining the cause of the issue, we’ll communicate with you in plain terms and provide expert advice on your options. Often times we are able to repair a transmission by accurately diagnosing the problem and replacing only the parts necessary to get you back on the road.

Transfer Case Repair

Whether you realize it or not your vehicle’s transfer case is always working. Even if you’re not using your four wheel drive it is still working so it’s important to make sure it is always running properly. The transfer case directs power to both ends of the vehicle (axles) through two separate driveshafts. Signs of a worn out transfer case can include grinding gears and noise.

Differential Repair

The rear differential is made up of many gears with teeth precisely entwined and arranged with each other.   If, for example, lubrication runs low or the arrangement of the gears goes out of place, rear differential noise occurs. Gear whine, bearing noise and clunking are common rear differential noises that should be a concern to vehicle owners.
