Its nice to find real craftsmanship these days.
Dolan McDonald of Missoula Montana
"I brought Chris and his team an old bus project and they swapped a motor and rebuilt the transmission for me. They went above and beyond with small details in the engine compartment and did things right. Its nice to find real craftsmanship these days. Katherine is a peach who is super knowledgeable which is rare in a front desk person. Everyone at Transolution is part of a great team and will continue to get my work and all those I talk to. Thanks you guys!"
They saved the day and got me back on the road super fast. They have excellent customer service and technical know how.

"Transolution Auto Care Missoula. Bad news! We had a spring break trip to Zion National Park planned, but found out my 2008 Subaru Outback needed a head gasket job (I know...what a shock!) just a few days before we were leaving. The crew at Transolution worked hard to get the job done, staying until 8 o'clock on a Friday night, so that we could head home, pack up and hit the road early. They test drove it several times to ensure that the kids and I would have no further problems. We even got a friendly phone call from Brian while we were on the road to see if the car was running okay. I really appreciate this kind of service and highly recommend these guys. Thanks for the considerate, professional service. We had a great trip! Kari, Missoula"
I appreciate the excellent service and compassion for a couple of out of towners trying to get home!
Leslie Mitchell of Denver Colorado
"While on a road trip, my car started leaking ATF. We carefully drove into Missoula and started calling repair shops. Everyone was fully booked, but Transolutions agreed to take a look at the car the next morning. They quickly diagnosed the problem and make the necessary repairs. We were back on the road and headed home. I appreciate the excellent service and compassion for a couple of out of towners trying to get home!"
What impressed me so much about this facility was their ability to work me in and give me first class service. They were extremely busy and still put me in front of the line understanding our situation.

"We were having a great trip traveling from Oklahoma to the Tetons, Yellowstone, and on our way to Glacier when we had transmission issues. It is not something that you plan for when traveling on a trip over 1,500 miles from home. Emergency repairs can become quite a challenge to find competent help. When you do find a great repair facility I believe you need to let the motorhome community know. We limped into Missoula, MT to stay at the KOA campground on a Sunday. Yes, it seems that problems like to occur on Sundays. I called Good Sam's Roadside Assistance and can report they try to help but when it comes to transmissions they are at a loss. The campground was helpful in providing a list of facilities. Through a process of elimination we were able to find a transmission shop to call and left a message (Sunday) of our situation. The next morning we received a call from Brian, the shop manager, with Transolution. Brian was very helpful over the phone and with the information he provided, I felt very comfortable that they would be able to diagnose the problem and repair. What impressed me so much about this facility was their ability to work me in and give me first class service. They were extremely busy and still put me in front of the line understanding our situation. Transolution was able to pull the error codes to determine what the problem was and then source this issue for repairs. In addition to repairing the transmission as a courtesy they also performed a PM to check other systems. As it turned out this was a blessing as they also found a component that was hanging on by one loose bolt. If this component would have fallen off their would have been no way to shut off the engine as well as no accelerator to move the coach. They also found other issues but it was determined that this was not critical even though they should be addressed when we got back home. This is impressive in the fact that they only performed the immediate safety issues and did not take advantage of the situation. After the repairs we continued on our trip with no issues and were so thankful that we found Transolution! My recommendation to anyone who is remotely close to Missoula, MT and in need of transmission service or repair would be to call Transolution. You will not be sorry and have pease of mind that the work will be done right the first time. We can not thank Chris Gerber and the entire staff at Transolution enough for their professionalism and courtesy. Sincerely, Ed and Dawn McVay "
Very thorough and very kind. Of course I did bribe them with homemade brownies and rice krispy treats.
Gem Mercer of Challis Idaho
"Hey I just had my Rialta Motorhome 2001 completely gone over by the guys at Transolution in Missoula. Everyone there is so polite and my old motor home with 135,000 miles is running like new. We are talking a vehicle made by Volkswagen that is completed by Winnebago, and which has been discontinued for over 12 years. They figured out everything from overheating to air conditioning. Very thorough and very kind. Of course I did bribe them with homemade brownies and rice krispy treats."
Thanks Chris! My car runs great! Transolution is the best transmission shop in Missoula.
Jennifer of Missoula Montana
"My transmission was having some shift problems. After calling around and being told different causes, I wasn't sure who to trust. I took it to Transolution Auto Care and found Chris and his crew were wonderful. Chris explained things very well, and even though I put him through some grief, he took all of it and even detailed out my car. Thanks Chris! My car runs great! Transolution is the best transmission shop in Missoula."
I didn't worry that as a woman I was given less service just because I don't know much about cars. If anything goes wrong with your vehicle, you can ask them to fix it. I even got tires there.
Peggy Gilmour of Missoula Montana
"Chris and Dustin at Transolution rebuilt the rear axle of my 1999 Jeep when it died on Hwy 93 N last December. They also replaced front wheel bearings that were worn and it now runs like a dream. I drive it for rural mail delivery and they ordered and received the parts and fixed it in time for me to use it for work when I needed it. I didn't worry that as a woman I was given less service just because I don't know much about cars. If anything goes wrong with your vehicle, you can ask them to fix it. I even got tires there."
Chris went to great lengths to repair the car and return it to great running condition. The entire staff is friendly and professional. Highly recommend your facility!
