Your Transmission Physician
Serving Greensboro, & Winston-Salem
Transmission repair has a reputation for being the first sign of your vehicle’s last leg. At Cottman Transmission and Total Auto Care, we specialize in transmissions and bringing them back to life! With services like transmission flush that should be performed regularly, our technicians can keep your vehicle in peak condition, so your transmission lasts longer before developing issues. In general, transmission repairs happen in vehicles older than 30,000 miles, once the engine is really broken in and, in fact, sometimes broken. Not all of our customers come in with smoke pouring out from under the hood. Sometimes transmission damage has smaller, more subtle signs. Our technicians put together a list of the top three common signs so that our customers know what to look out for and when it’s time to bring your vehicle to a Cottman Transmission shop that’s near you. We have locations all over the Triad in Winston-Salem and Greensboro.
The first step to any customer experience is speaking with one of our team members. If our technicians hear you are experiencing any common transmission problems, they will recommend that you come in for a free transmission inspection. We'll go over the diagnostic results with you and discuss possible repair solutions. At either one of our locations in Winston Salem or Greensboro, we offer state-of-the-art equipment and economical repairs. Once you've experienced our customer service, you won't be shopping for another repair shop!

Thank you to the entire team at this location. I reached out to this location to get an appointment for a warranty repair to my engine, they were able to get me an appointment in less than a week and they were able to complete the repair fast. I truly appreciate the entire staff at this location because prior to coming here I was completely overwhelmed and they made everything right for me. I dropped of the car one day and it was ready for pick up the very next day! I’m grateful for Cottman... Read More
I would high recommend Cottman Transmission and Total Auto Care for any transmission needs. I dealt with several individuals there, in particular, Rob. All were extremely professional and courteous. In addition, they obviously knew what they were doing. I was towing a small travel trailer with my Hummer H2, traveling between Virginia and Florida, on my way to Charlotte, NC, when my torque converter exploded, taking my transmission with it. Cottmans, with a sensitivity to my "travel" situat... Read More
This people are really honest in the services they give . Let me tell you my story. When I went for oil change at precision tune auto I was told my car has failed transmission. I went to cottman’s and they worked on my car for a day. They said my car has no issues and it was misdiagnosed at precision auto. They didn’t charge me a coin. I am so thankful for these people and recommend their service for everyone I know.
Service was friendly, professional and since we were from out of town, they expedited our work so we could continue with our travels without interruption (we were in Greensboro for 2 weeks). While we did have to take it back in, they took care of the issue and coordinated a follow up appt after we left town covered by warranty. Would certainly recommend.

I took my Ford Focus to Cottman for a clutch replacement. Rob was very helpful and friendly. Rob explained that I should probably replace a few extra components at the same time as the clutch due to issues the focus transmission has. Considering how poorly the car was shifting from first to second gear it made sense. It was more expensive than I was hoping, but the car is shifting great now. I don't mind paying for quality work. Even though they are constantly busy at Cottman they were able t... Read More
I originally took my truck to Scenic Ford in Mt. Airy and they kept my truck for 2 months and gave me the runaround. After weekly check-ins and numerous lies, they told me I needed a 6,500 transmission replacement. I called Minor at Cottman right away. He asked me a couple of questions and I was at his shop the next day. 24 hours later, Minor had my truck back to me working. I can't say enough about Minor and his communication. I will say, I read the reviews online ahead of time. Some good an... Read More
Another mechanic Mr Malcolm, recommended that I take my car over to Cottman's because he did not do transmission work. I was extremely impressed with their service, the way they checked out my car and the speed at which they got back in touch with me. I'm telling you if you need some work done in your transmission, you will need to check out Cottman's. It's free for them to look at it to find out what the problem is.
I was having a transmission leak from my 09 toyota camry and was searching for somewhere to take my car, I found Cottman from online and also was referred here. The customer service was very good, I dropped my car off around 9a and was called around noon to let me know where the leak was coming from (cooler transmission lines) and gave me an eta of how long the fix will take. I havent had any problems since and the price was outstanding. I would do business here again.
Great experience! They rebuilt my ZF5 manual transmission. It was done fast and it was done right! Minor & crew are knowledgeable, honest and respectful! I took my 1997 F-450 Work Truck in. I had a huge job coming up and they fit me in and got it done in time. They are one of the few shops in the area that still does manual transmission rebuilds and their Manual Transmission Rebuilder is top notch! Couldn’t thank or recommend these guys enough!
So far, so good. Brian is easy to talk with, a real honest down to earth guy. Does a good job of keeping me calm as he deals with a third party to get them to do their job and cover my repairs. He is going to bat for me and my husband and I truly appreciate it, from the bottom of our hearts. Bless you!
