Amazing Price, Quality Work

I usually don't write reviews, but this shop deserves it. Not only did they quote me with an amazing price (cheapest of 5 other shops) they finished it with great quality work, at the bottom of the quoted price range and with a great 12 month warranty. A shop that is that confident in their work is rare these days. Scott was a great guy to deal with. He did the inspection without a bit of hesitation. Most shops like to charge for it, which is ridiculous. I had some differential work done. Choose these guys you won't regret it!

Scott is Great!
Location: Portland

Scott is great! He will help you out when you need it and does not pull your leg. I believe its a family office and all the mechanics there are super cool. Will keep coming back.

Well it was indeed worse
Location: Bellevue, WA
Service Performed: Recasing Transmission

In my last post I said that if the problem were bigger, I'd still be happy with the services and help I received...well it was bigger than originally thought, but Scott and crew fixed everything and left us with a much better vehicle than when we first drug it into his shop. His estimate was spot on and we are still very happy with the help and service.

Trustworthy and Honest
Location: Portland

We have been customers of River City Transmissions for many years. Scott has worked on 4 of our vehicles now and is very trustworthy and honest. We had recently taken one of our vehicles into Toyota for routine maintenance when they quoted us over $1,000 in work that needed to be done. We ended up taking it to River City and after Scott looked it over, he said it was all ok and they were just trying to sell us that maintenance package. He always takes the time to go through with what problems our vehicles are having and quotes us the best rates in town. We have happily referred many family and friends over to Scott as we know we can trust their work.

Service Performed: differential diagnose

I can't say enough how amazing this place is. I towed my broke ass brand new dodge over there and not only did he diagnose it, he totally didnt attack my pocket book with outlandish prices--in fact he is letting me source my parts since I get military discount. So many shops flat refuse to do this, because they need the markup. I LOVE this shop, and the family that runs it. I wish all shops operated with this integrity and honesty.

Highly Recommended
Location: Portland
Service Performed: Transmission repair

If there were more stars to give - I'd give 'em. Scott not only "took in" our problem Ford Explorer with no reservation, he made room in their otherwise busy schedule to diagnose and repair the car. He and the folks there who helped us are, as far as I am concerned - simply great. Thanks to you all for such a great - job, Even if the problem had turned out to be bigger than it was, I would still have been completely satisfied with their effort, customer service and clear willingness to be the solution to a problem.

Service Performed: Rear differential repair, parking brake repair, rear wheel bearing

I took my 2002 Ford Explorer to Scott at River City Transmissions based positive internet reviews. I was NOT disappointed. Scott and his wife are courteous, straightforward and friendly. After a cursory examination he explained what he expected to find once he removed the covers and found the problem. He provided a worst case cost range for the work to be performed, but reiterated that cost could be less depending on what he found. Indeed, it was substantially less than Scott's "worst case" estimate and about 40% of the cost quoted by the Ford dealer. I doubt the Ford dealer would have informed me of the work that did not need to be performed. River City Transmissions is honest and performs quality work. You can trust them with your business.

A Business With Integrity

I chose Larry's/River City because they are in my neighborhood and they have great reviews. I don't often review, but they are a rare gem. I went in prepared to fork over 2,000+ dollars, the bill came to $129. They could have easily scammed me and they didn't. My 15 year old Town & County has 130k miles. When I took it in, I had to limp it all the way there and the shifting was worsening greatly by the day- to the point of not going into gear at all many times. They performed a standard service and it's good as new, shifts like butter. I'm telling all my friends about this place. Love me a business with integrity and honest people. Way to go guys. You'll have my business for years to come. Thank you.

Knowledge and HONEST
Location: 6959 SE Foster
Service Performed: engine mount

With all the noise coming from my front end in reverse, and right between my seats while in drive, I thought the issue was transmission related. My brother thought it was a loose exhaust system. Well, Lane drove it, tested it for a loose,or broken front motor mount with me standing right there, and saved me a couple thousand dollars in my mind.The broken motor mount was causing the exhaust to make a wicked rattle, like something was going to fly off! Lane knew what it was immediately. He said they were backed up about ten days, but he would do his best to squeeze me in. Within 48 hours, and not 2 weeks later, I had my car back for just over a $100!!! Thanks again Lane, and Scott for getting me in with such short notice, and making my car safe again!
