My transmission went out. I called around and either did not like the price or was told that my clutch would probably have a problem with it as well. Some mechanics told me that there was no way that my transmission situation would have affected my clutch. I just had my clutch replaced (manual) 4 months ago. The shop that completed that work assured me that my transmission was fine. Therefore, I searched for my transmission, which is not readily available any longer and foreign. I found it at Kar King. They offered to put it in for me and give me a core credit. The price was excellent. Also, they picked it up from the shop I had left it at and was not going to do business with. I was in my car the next day and it sounds and drives perfectly. I was treated kindly and professionally by the mechanic on the phone and in person. I will not put the price I paid because there will probably be different prices depending on the make and model. If I need work done again, I will go back. It is 25 years since I have been able to say that about a mechanic's shop.

The reason I have waited so long to post my review is I wanted to wait and see how things were after the 6 month warranty they give with their work expired. It has now been around 7 or 8 months since I purchased a motor and transmission from Kar King and they are running just fine. I would recommend this company to anybody that wants quality work without the inflated price tag. Before Kar King I was quoted $5900.00 from one shop (that was just for the motor w/warranty) and $3700.00 from another (used motor w/o warranty). Since these prices were way out of my price range, I decided to shop around and found Kar King. Not only did I get a new rebuilt motor (with a warranty) I also picked up a rebuilt transmission. I figured might as well do them both since the tranny had around 140,000 miles on it as well and had to be pulled out with the motor (easiest way to do it). The price for motor and trans was $2750.00!!!! Nobody else could even touch this price! Another nice thing about George and his crew is they stand behind their work. Long story short, there was a slight discrepancy concerning the transmission and it had to be sent back to Kar King. I called George and informed him of this. Kar King paid for all the shipping to and from their shop in California. Not only that but when they took another look at it he informed me of a different, more serious problem with my transmission. At this point he called me to let me know what was going on, that they had fixed it and was sending it back with a trans cooler.....FREE OF CHARGE! So to sum it up I think the guys at Kar King do a great job so don't bother looking anywhere else. A very satisfied customer

Recently the transmission went out in my 1991 Geo Metro. This was the original transmission and lasted through 3 engine changes approx. 500,000+ mi. I drove the vehicle till it did not move and had to be towed home. In searching for a new transmission I found Kar KingAuto through their listing on eBay. The price $800.00 appeared to be an excellent price for a rebuilt transmission. After the order was placed and payment cleared, I received the transmission in about 3 days (Northern Ca.). I felt that this was fast shipping. The transmission was well packaged and protected for transit. I have installed the transmission and it works GREAT !!!!! Up shifting and down shifting is nice and smooth and the vehicle is quieter then I've ever heard it before. The vehicle runs like a new car. Thank you Kar King Auto. I would highly recommend this company if you are in the market for a rebuilt trans.

I have 1991 Stealth R/T TT that came to me with blown engine....Just figuring out what all that got damaged internally would had ran me in the 500's. So after a year of pondering, I knocked on the door of Karking and they answered me with a 3.0 V6 rebuilt beast I'm happily taming the street with right now...Thank you Karking and all the supports your put in helping me with my project...and best of wishes to anyone who chooses Karking for all their automotive need...Junior

Went in to have my transmission replace on my 99 Sienna. A week later I picked the van. The van still had issue. It only shifted gear at high rpm when the engine is cold. I called them up and they told me to drive awhile. A month later, the issued wasn't clear. They told me to drive vehicle to them for inspection a couple of days. I had to rent a car for several days. I picked up the car a couple of days later. The problem was fixed. But a couple months later, I found out that they fixed the problem by depleting the transmission fluid so it could run hot sooner. I refilled the transmission fluid to a proper level and now the problem reappear. STAY AWAY FROM THIS BUSINESS. THEY ARE DISHONEST.

Do not ever give this company your business. I recently purchased a transmission that had an incorrect O-ring installed. The transmission fluid leaked out and destroyed my clutch. They would not admit they used the wrong part even though I provided photographic evidence. I would give zero stars if possible.

After 306,000 miles my Toyota Tacoma 3RZ FE lost Compression. I searched around and nobody came close to the Kar King Price. I spoke with George and he had a Long Block in stock. Replace a few other Item while I had the engine out. The machine work was incredible engine fired right up. Hoping for another 300,000 Miles. Great People! Tim Lenexa, KS
