THANK YOU! YOU ARE OUR HERO!
Dana A of Stevensville Montana
"I have seen Chris's ads Transolution Auto Repair in Missoula, on television so he was the first on my mind when I began to look for help. My daughter was in a traumatic skiing accident. He could have said, "no" but he did not. My daughter shattered her femur and humorous plus her elbow and has a concussion. As the injuries were on opposite sides of her body and her leg is not bendable and non-weight bearing she can not even use crutches. I needed my transmission fixed quick on the only vehicle I had to take her to doctor appointments. First Baptist Church in Stevensville paid for the oil and miscellaneous parts. My dad and mom paid for the transmission filter and rebuild kit. Chris is donating ALL of his time and expertise to fix the transmission. THANK YOU! YOU ARE OUR HERO!"
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!

The entire staff is friendly and professional. Highly recommend your facility!"
Awesome, very professional service
Elaine Rambo of Missoula Montana
"Awesome, very professional service. We just purchased our first RV ... a used (2007) motorhome ... and brought it to Translutions for a complete checkup before traveling. Chris was very thorough ... and very patient ... explaining everything to us and teaching us what we needed to know about its maintenance. We were extremely grateful for the time he invested in us and in our rig. Outstanding service. Will definitely be returning."
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 "

Mariah Dandar of Gibsonburg Ohio
"I can't say I've ever had a more pleasant experience at an auto shop than the one I had today. I had been told at two other places that it would cost me $40-$80 just to get my vehicle looked at. I simply had an automatic window malfunctioning. It turned out that I had accidentally turned the child lock on! haha They also checked a few other minor things with no charge, and gave me great advice on what to do from there as far as auto repairs. Also the shop itself was very cozy, with hot tea and coffee available. They even had a bowl of complimentary chocolate that I appreciated very much! Please take your vehicle here, these guys deserve your business and will treat you with much kindness and respect."
Thank you so much for the quality and honest work completed at your garage!
Joe Kimball of Spokane Washington
"Daughters rig broke down on I-90. I turned to the WEB for help after another garage wanted $2,400.00 to repair. I called TRANSOLUTION, and had it towed to them. Repaired in one day for $400.00, and never shifted so well. Thank you so much for the quality and honest work completed at your garage!"
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!"
I have never had better service and this is the most honest car repair I have ever had.
Rick Leishman of Spokane Washington
"At 10:00 on Good Friday my car broke down in Missoula, Chris said he would have me back on the road by Monday. I was a little skeptical. My car was ready at 1:00 Monday as promised. The price was just what Chris said it would be and the car runs great. I have never had better service and this is the most honest car repair I have ever had. Thank you Chris. Job well done."
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."
Chris put us on the top of the list, found and fixed the problems!
Lenard Huebscher of Stillwater Minnesota
"Travelers needing repair for van that developed problems - that was us. We found Chris and staff in the yellow pages. You did a great job on our 2005 Town and Country. It would only go 40 mph. Chris put us on the top of the list, found and fixed the problems! Great job. Van runs great now. Thank You very much."
