How Does My Vehicle's Suspension System Work?
If the roads of around the Missoula area were perfectly level, a suspension system in your car or truck would not be required. But as we all know, the roads around the Missoula are anything but level. Even the various highways around the Missoula area have divots and bumps that when interacting with the wheels can result in the vehicle being jogged up and down. Void of a suspension system the bumps would directly impact the vehicle's frame. The wheels of the vehicle would lose connection with the street and slam back onto the street surface, leaving the vehicle's occupants with a ride similar to riding in a toy wagon. But fortunately, the suspension system of a vehicle moves the vehicle smoothly forward while the tires follow the bumps in the road.
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."

" I used to rely on the fix-it shop when vehicles broke down. Now, I feel confident and wonderfully at peace knowing all my family rides on personal, expert, bumper to bumper maintenance and repair. I have trust and confidence in transolution's thorough inspections and years of experience to keep my four oldies safe and functional. What a team! What a relief! You are the best. THANKS!

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."
I really appreciate this kind of service and highly recommend these guys.

"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"
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 "
Thank you so much for the quality and honest work completed at your garage!

"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!"
