I can really feel my gears shifting. You did a great job!
Bob Smiddy of Knoxville Tennessee
"I would like to take the opportunity to recommend Chip's Transmissions for your service needs. Chip is a straight forward, down to earth, honest, and reliable individual and he stands behind is work. I only wish I knew Chip long ago! Last year my truck transmission broke and I had my truck towed into the local transmission shop in middel Tennessee. one wee and $2,000 later I was on the road again, but nothing ever felt right. One day when I was out making a pick up for my store, it started to slip again, I had my truck towed in to Chip's Transmissions, and boy was i luck this time. After the major repairs I was back on the road again. I can really feel my gears shifting. You did a great job! you can trust Chip and you will be pleased with your repairs."
Play it safe and do not go anywhere else for transmission work.
Richard Pisula of Sevierville Tennessee
"I am very pleased with how quickly they rebuilt my Transmission. They had me back on the road in 2 days. Very professional. Would highly recommend them. Play it safe and do not go anywhere else for transmission work."
Not knowing a good mechanic while out of town is stressful, but the staff at Chips was quick friendly and knowledgeable, and their pricing is fair.

I would not recommend any other transmission shop other than Chip's Transmissions.
Brenda Painter of Sevierville Tennessee
"My wife and I own a 17 year old truck that has a very rare transmission. After looking for nearly a year for a replacement we called Chip's as a last resort. As it turned out we should have called them first. They knew exactly what we were up against and had a solution in a short time. They were nearly 1/2 the price of what the dealership wanted or any other shop we checked. They also had the best warranty. We have been very pleased with the results. With one week left on the warranty the transmission began to act up a bit and again we took it to Chip's. After a short road trip they could find nothing wrong yet they knew I was not happy with it's performance. They had me to leave it overnight so they could check it again. It turned out to be going bad so again they did a complete rebuild with another warranty and did not cost us one penny. The truck runs like new again! Every time we have gone down to their shop they have made us feel as if we were important to them. Prompt service, very courteous and informative. As a retired ASE certified Master Mechanic, Chip has earned my respect and all of my family's business from now on. I would not recommend any other transmission shop other than Chip's Transmissions. "
Hands down, grade A customer service!
Jeremie Cutter of Vevay Indiana
"Great service! They took the time to listen to what my plans were for the truck and explained what they were going to do and answered all of my questions. I ended up having a problem with the tranny which was no fault of either party and there were no questions asked as to why ... it was just "bring it in and we'll get it fixed". It was fixed fast, too. A day and a half and I was going again. Very good for bringing it in just after noon and getting it back the next evening. Every time I called, someone has always answered or gotten back to me fast (within 1/2 hour) and I probably called 15+ times - from setting up an appointment to having questions to minor problems to getting it picked up. Hands down, grade A customer service! Thank you ALL!"
Next time I'm going to Chip's Transmissions firs!
Don Watson of Sevierville Tennessee
"On December 12, 2006, I was Christmas shopping in Sevierville and parked at one of the many outlets. Upon returning to my vehicle, I started the engine and placed the vehicle in reverse. As I gently accelerated to back out of the parking space, the vehicle did not respond as the transmission seemed to slip. The transmission suddenly caught and jerked into gear. I tried forward, reverse, and everything worked perfectly. However, my 2003 Ford Explorer does not have a stick to check the level, you must place the vehicle on a lift at a service station. I wanted to make sure the fluid levels was correct to prevent any future problems, so I visited several locations and asked to have the fluid level checked. One location told me they would not check the fluid, but they would hook me up for a diagnostic test for a substantial fee. I explained that the transmission was working fine, and I just wanted to check the fluid as a precaution. They still refused. The other locations were busy or told me they couldn't perform the service check on my transmission. Thinking I was going to have to drive to Knoxville or similar distance, I thought of Chip's Transmission repair shop in Sevierville. I went there and talked to Mr. Phil Sims. They had numerous vehicles being repaired, but Mr. Sims worked me into their schedule in a timely manner. They completed the check on my transmission, and did so at a very fair price. I mistakenly thought of a transmission shop as a location for repairs only. However, they perform repairs and many other functions as well. Many thanks to you Phil, for taking time out of your busy schedule to perform a small job for me. Next time I'm going to Chip's Transmissions first!"

I don't know the name of the people who referred us to you, but he said he had always heard you were the best. We made the trip home fine. The car runs as good or better than it did.
Doris Guy of Laurel Mississippi
"I've never broken down on a trip before. In the 25 years I've been going to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg area, I've never been in a situation like that before. Thanks to you, you made it a little easier to trust strangers. I don't know the name of the people who referred us to you, but he said he had always heard you were the best. We made the trip home fine. The car runs as good or better than it did. Thanks again for all you did for two old people. We will stop in to see you if we ever get back that way. Thanks again and God bless."
