"I was traveling through Toledo and my car decided to break down on the side of the highway. Great!!!! I took my car to Express Transmissions expecting to have to rent a car for the rest of the trip and then take a second trip back to drop the rental car off and pick up my car. I was so upset but to my surprise they told me it would only take a day for them to pull and install a reman transmission! I didn’t even think that was possible!!!! I couldn't have asked for any better service then I had received at Express Transmissions. Tyler and Ralph are the best!!"
