A fully operational transmission, along with your vehicle’s engine, is by far the most important machine in your car. In the words of Rob George, the owner of Quaker Transmissions in West Warwick, your transmission is “what makes the wheels move”, and so if your transmission isn’t working properly or is damaged, your vehicle has no power source. A transmission is a remarkable contraption that is the reason your car can shift from gear to gear, thus accommodating your demands for speed and acceleration.
The life of your transmission is impacted by extreme temperatures and is especially vulnerable in the winter months. If you notice that your vehicle is having trouble changing gears, if the gears are slipping, if it is grinding and shaking, or if your “check engine” light goes on, Rob George warns ~ you may be in trouble. It is time to bring your vehicle in to Quaker Transmissions to repair and prolong the life of this critical component of your car.
Quaker Transmissions was established by a two experienced, knowledgeable and highly skilled technicians who knew transmissions better than they knew just about anything. Over the course of their long careers, they serviced every kind of transmission in vehicles of every make, model and year. While now owned by Rob George, the work of Quaker Transmissions remains the same ~ to repair your transmissions with expertise, skilled workmanship and, most importantly, with uncompromising honesty and integrity.
Rob George explains: “Transmission work is a specialty that can’t be taken on by your general mechanic.” Transmission work cannot be done by technicians with less-than-par workmanship or lack of experience without posing a tremendous risk to your vehicle. Rob values his customers’ trust and knows this business well enough to diagnose the problem, state the facts with full disclosure and most importantly, get the work done in a timely and professional way.
