Certified Transmission to the Rescue.
Fox News 4 Video >

Welcome to Certified Transmission of Encinitas. We are a family owned and operated business. We have been providing full transmission service since 1978. We have 17 employees with over 200 years of combined transmission experience.

When considering whether you need a Factory Remanufactured Transmission, a Rebuilt Transmission, or a Used transmission we have it all with a nationwide warranty too. Because of our a large inventory, we can repair, rebuild,and replace most transmissions quickly.

We are automatic transmission troubleshooting experts. Many so-called automatic transmission problems are not transmission problems at all. A faulty computer chip, an intermittent "prndl" switch (park-reverse-neutral0-drive-low), a leaking vacuum line, and many other seemingly unrelated problems mights be diagnosed as a transmission problem by others.
