Quaker Transmissions

Specializing in transmission, clutch and drive train repairs


A fully operational transmission is one of the most important machines in your car. A transmission is a remarkable mechanism that allows your car to shift from gear to gear, thereby accommodating your demands for speed and acceleration. The life of your transmission is impacted by many different factors, including extreme temperatures. If you notice that your vehicle is having trouble changing gears, if the gears are slipping, if your car is grinding and shaking, or if your “Check engine” light goes on, Rob George, co-owner of Quaker Transmissions, warns ~ you may be in trouble. It may be time to bring your vehicle in to West Warwick’s Quaker Transmissions to repair and prolong the life of this critical component of your car.

Quaker Transmissions was established in 1990. Longtime technician and owner Rob George is an experienced and knowledgeable mechanic who knows transmissions better than he knows just about anything. In his long career, dating back to the early 70’s, he has serviced every kind of transmission in vehicles of every make, model and year. Transmissions are his first language; it’s what he does with expertise, skilled workmanship, honesty and integrity.

Rob George explains: “Transmission work is a specialty that can’t be taken on by your general mechanic.” It is highly specialized work that cannot be done by technicians with a lack of experience or sub-standard workmanship without posing a tremendous risk to your vehicle. Rob values his customers and knows they depend on him and his team of talented technicians to diagnose the problem, state the facts with full disclosure and most importantly, get the work done in a timely and professional manner.
