"Very professional, beat their ECD and the "shop rate" they get you from Enterprise car rental can't be beat."

"Stu's is a great option with a busy life style when something pop's up or conks out. Our a/c went out and we just happened to be picking one car up and they took the other right in and got it right back. it is always nice to get those smaller bills that solve the problem and get those little headaches out of the way. Thanks again Tim and the crew.

"Unfortunately, I've had transmission problems on two of my cars this year. I've used Stu's for both repairs and been very satisfied with there work. The latest one needed a full rebuild and the car was finished on time and is running great. They always go the extra mile to make sure the repair is done right the first time. Thanks again to Tim and his crew!

You got it running in time for me to get my friend to the airport, the bill was to the dollar of your estimate and my clutch was never better,.

"I am happy with the work completed at Stu's. I had been taking my truck to another repair shop but I am well pleased to have had the work completed at Stu's. They are extremely professional and I know if I need additional work done on my truck I will return to Stu's. If you need work done on your car or truck do not hesitate and get your car or truck into Stu's. See Tim, he will treat you well and will make sure your car or truck is repaired and is in top running condition at a fair price."

"I brought my 2005 Chrysler Pacifica in on a Thursday for a check engine light. Found out there were 5 codes going off which wasn't what I was hoping for, 1 of them being the transmission. Tim and his team gave me an idea of what there approach to my car troubles was going to be and kept me informed of the process along the way. Although it wasn't the speed sensor (which would have been the easy fix) they ran and researched further diagnostics and found out the trouble was my alternator. Tim called me and told me they would replace the alternator and then immediately called me back and said he wanted to make sure the problem was completely resolved and said he wanted to put in a new alternator. I was glad that he called back and suggested the new one so I wouldn't have to worry that sometime soon down the line the problem would reappear. My car was finished on Friday. Service was great, follow up was great and I feel like I was well taken care of. Very straight forward and honest team!"

"I brought my truck to have all of my transmission seals replaced on a TH400 to stop leaking, then had other leaks addressed as well as my driveshaft, I was fortunate enough to have a great experience and had everything thoroughly explained to me, the service was great and I am very pleased with the work performed on my car... I will definitely return for more work and this is my new auto shop. They are truly a group of qualified mechanics whom treat every car as if it is their own. TRULY IMPRESSED!!!"

- Jordon P., LAKEWOOD 5 star review for stu's automotive repair long beach


"My Suburban recently had the front wheel bearings go out and foolish as it was, I took it to the Chevy dealer to have it looked at. Partly because they had recently replaced them and I was curious about a warranty. After a quote of $1300 I chose to pull it out of there and give Tim a call at Stu's. Aside from coming in with a price under $1,000, I not only saved money but I drove away completely satisfied with not only the work performed but with the care, concern and professionalism I've only found at Stu's. Tim is a "straight up" guy who tells it as it his. It is obvious to me that the dealer isn't always the best place to go. Thank you Tim!"

- Fred & Karen B., LAKEWOOD 5 star review for stu's automotive repair long beach


"Rarely have i found a auto repar shop that is honest, price fair, and efficient. Stu's AE tranmission was unknown to me but word of mouth sent me to a oustanding repair shop the prices were fair and repair time on schedule. The owner very knowldgeable of the vehicles repaired there thanks"

"My experience at Stu's Transmission was a good one. Tim took my truck right in and had it completed to my satisfaction in two days. I would refer Stu's Transmission and I would go back if needed in the future. Thanks Tim."

- Alan O., HUNTINGTON BEACH 5 star review for stu's automotive repair long beach


"I usually work on my own cars, but as most amateurs do, I occasionally get stumped. Stu's has always been a first class transmission shop, but now that they are doing general repair, they're terrific at everything! They had my mystery problem diagnosed in short order, had it done in a timely and reasonably priced manner, and were cordial to the extreme! Go there!"

- Dave & Lisa Y., CERRITOS 5 star review for stu's automotive repair long beach


"The excellent reviews for this shop are well deserved, these guys are the real deal. Tim and his crew did a great job of isolating and fixing what turned out to be a relatively minor transmission problem, and saved me a lot of money in the process. They even took the time to check technical service bulletins from the manufacturer and corrected a design flaw while making the repair. Top notch."

- John C., LONG BEACH 5 star review for stu's automotive repair long beach


"Excellent Service as usual. My car was done and ready to roll within the time I was told. And the cost was half of what the dealer charges, WHERE I get an employee discount!!! Once Again, job more then well done.... Thank You!!!"

"If your car needs service of any kind, take to Stu's."

- Fred & Karen B., LAKEWOOD 5 star review for stu's automotive repair long beach



"Tim will take care of you for all your car's needs. Transmission repair is their specialty, but they handle just about everything else.

Took my '97 Ford F-350 Power Stroke in for a transmission rebuild and differential service, and was so pleased with the service, fairness, and attention to detail I also decided to have them fix my A/C, flush my coolant system, and brake system as well.

Very affordable for all that work, and Tim made sure it was done right!"

- Anonymous 5 star review for stu's automotive repair long beach


"Great service. Stu's transmission rebuilt the transmission on my 65 Lincoln and fixed a lingering problem in my steering column that I've been trying to solve for years. Tim and George were great to work with and I'd recommend this shop to anyone with transmission or other auto service needs. Fair prices and you can trust them."

"Great customer service. Took time to listen to my explanation of what was going on w/ my vehicle & explain in detail about repairs that were made and what I should expect as far how my SUV should drive. Repairs were completed before estimated time. Stu's was highly recommended by two different mechanics we trust and I would certainly do the same."

- Sam & Michelle A., LONG BEACH 5 star review for stu's automotive repair long beach



"Had a new clutch installed that required one return trip for adjustment. Tim also helped to diagnose a separate issue and worked with me to troubleshoot and plan a course of action for repair. One of the best shops around!"

"The recent rebuild of my automatic transmission was completed ahead of the promised date and at the agreed upon price.
The fact that they have been in business for 62 years and the 3 year guaranty on the transmission rebuild helped to decide to let them do the job. I'm completely satisfied with how the transmission is operating now."

- Alan P., LONG BEACH 5 star review for stu's automotive repair long beach



"Tim was more than good to me after another problem developed with my car. He eased my fears and treated me well when I was afraid of the extra repairs. He even gave me a brief Auto Shop 101 (explained how it worked). I feel more confident with this old car now. He even told me not to drive it w/o getting 2 tires on the front. I went right next door and g ot them. He is the one who can help you. Trust him."

"I was referred to Stu's by a friend and was very happy and satisfied with the work that they did. I took my Yukon in with a blown transmission on a Tuesday morning and it was finished on Wednesday afternoon. They were within a few bucks of the estimate. I could not have been more satisfied. I see why they've been around for so long."

- Charles R., LONG BEACH 4 star review for Su's automotive repair Long Beach by Demand Force



"I brought my truck in for it's regular transmission service and to have them install an aftermarket pan. I neglected to tell them that it would hunt between 1st.& 2nd. gear under light load and that the dealer had been unable to completely cure the problem. That little annoyance is now gone! Thanks guys!"

- Eric R., LONG BEACH 5 star review for stu's automotive repair long beach



"Had them service my transmission and install an aftermarket pan. I didn't mention to them that the tranny would hunt between 1st.& 2nd. gear under light load and the dealer couldn't completely cure it. After Stu's serviced it this annoyance is gone! Thanks guys."

- Eric R., LONG BEACH 5 star review for stu's automotive repair long beach



"I was recommended to the shop by a family member who does a lot of work through them.....and I can see why!!! I tried the Ford Dealer prior and they did not do what they said they did with my service. The guys at Stu's are very trustworthy and tell it like it is....and treat your vehicle as if it were their own. They gave me great advice on what else I should do to keep my truck in tip top shape. I will definetely have all my other preventative maintenance service done at Stus in the future."

- Jaime R., DOWNEY 5 star review for stu's automotive repair long beach



"I decided that a transmission guy was my best bet for a transfer case rebuild. My other mechanic wanted to replace the entire unit at twice the cost and he is not even a "dealer". Tim at Stu's was friendly, he worked with me to keep the cost down and the price was fair. I felt like they knew what they were doing and my BMW 2003 X5 now runs perfectly with 221,000 miles on it!"

- Anonymous 4 star review for Su's automotive repair Long Beach by Demand Force



"Very professional! Tim checked out the truck I thought it was a transmission problem which would have been very costly. Turned out it was a coil issues with my motor. 2 days This 2004 160k mile truck starts and drives like new."

"We took a van in and Stu's did a repair. When we got it back it was not right and got worse. Tim called right away and handled the situation. No hassle about what happened, the bottom line was the transmission had to be done right and Tim made sure it was. I deal with a lot of repair shops and have never been more satisfied with the way things were handled, Stu's was more than fair and they got the job done in record time. I am one happy customer!"

- M., LONG BEACH 5 star review for stu's automotive repair long beach

"Tim took my truck to a whole new measure!!! He was very explanatory and thorough!!! He went through my whole car and fixed everything that was wrong with it. This could not have been an easy feat as my truck is lifted with every horn and whistle on it and I drive it hard!!! Never going to another mechanic again!!! Thank you Tim at Stu's!!!!"

- Lea M., REDONDO BEACH 5 star review for stu's automotive repair long beach



"A mistake was made at Stu's, it happens. The amazing part is what happened afterwards. Tim got right on the problem and went far and beyond what he had to do to make the situation right. I can not say what it meant when he offered the solution, not excuses. We sell wheelchair accessible vans and a breakdown is a disaster and knowing the integrity of Tim we know everything will be done to make things right. Thanks so much!"

- M., LONG BEACH 5 star review for stu's automotive repair long beach



"A friend called me at the last minute and asked me to tow an airplane and trailer from San Francisco to Tehachapi. I had planned on getting a transmission cooler installed at some point, but now it was essential. So, on a Thursday afternoon, I called Tim and explained that I was scheduled to leave early Saturday morning and would he have time to do the installation. Time said bring it in and I'll have it ready by 4:45pm, Friday. On Friday at about noon, Tim called and said it was ready! Hard to believe. Not only was the work completed before promised but the price was excellent as well. Stu's AE Transmission is the place you can trust to take your car or truck for excellent service."

- Rob T., LONG BEACH 5 star review for stu's automotive repair long beach



"Stu's is one of the few places that I trust to work on my '54 Chevy Bel Air. Not many places even know how to work on these cars. The clutch job that George did on my car turned out great and makes the car much more enjoyable to drive."
- Mark G., LONG BEACH 5 star review for stu's automotive repair long beach



"I recently had my tranny rebuilt at Stu's and at the same time had my wife's timing belt changed as well as both of our air conditioners serviced. They did a great job and and finished both cars earlier than expected. Tim was very friendly, professional & knowledgeable. Over all we are very pleased with our experience. Thanks Stu!"

"Called the mornig of April 30th for an appointment, was able to get the truck in that same day. Truck was promised completed bt 4:00PM. Service was completed by 1:00 PM and at the estimated price. Transmission road tested, everything OK, but noted that the truck could use a tune-up. I felt that I was treated honestly. Everyone I had ever talked to in the area about transmissions would say Stu's is the best. I used them once about 20 years ago and it was a good experience. I was a little concered on the day of my service when I found out Stu no longer owned the garage. But it appears that they have kept up the Stu tradition of great honest service."

- Mark H., LAKEWOOD 5 star review for stu's automotive repair long beach

"I was referred here by a good friend and am very satisfied by the friendliness, promptness, and communication from Tim and his staff. Armed with a 'repair' and cost list from the dealer, not including the transmission, I was very happy about the cost, including the transmission. They replaced the $28(really?!) 3rd brake light for n/c! And cannot forget to mention, Tim will stand by his estimate."

"Multiple independent mechanics have recommended I go to Stu's for my transmission questions. When I finally needed an adjustment made I swung by and they offered to tinker with it there on the spot. unfortunately it did require spending the night, but it is nice of Stu's to have tried to adjust it on the spot."

- Anonymous 5 star review for stu's automotive repair long beach



"These guys are top of the line- they may specialize in transmissions but their general mechanics are great too. Tim, the manager, is a real straight shooter and cares more about his customers than the Toyota Dealer I bought and serviced my Avalon at. I took it in for a cold starting problem and brakes- both fixed perfectly and delivered on time. I asked to check for other things that may be problems. He told me about one thing I already knew- bad struts, but he didn't pressure the repair and in fact, assured me that I would be fine till my next service. The spoiler was that he replaced my totally shot wiper blades without me having to ask....it rained the next day! Thanks Tim."

"I was referee to stu's when my VW Jetta started riding really rough and another shop diagnosed the problem as a transmission issue. Tim and his diagnostic mechanic were professional and very nice. They told me the possibilities and estimate. Although I had to call at the end of the day and the car hadn't been looked at, I was promised that I could have the car back by Wednesday morning. On Tuesday I was given the news that the issue would not require a new transmission as we expected and it was ready to go by Wednesday by noon. I will definitely take it back there."

"I had the check engine light problem with my Chevy Aveo. Cos I am previous very satisfied customer of Stu's, I called Tim and brought my car next day and left it at the shop for a day. Tim has a good relation with rental company and good prices with them. Next day he told me that it was a minor problem and he did not want to bill me! Nowadays you can not find such honest people like in Stu's. If you want a great job done with your car, I highly recommend them…"

"Two major things Stu's has going for them are the quality and integrity they provide with each service. From the get go we felt Tim and his staff were winners, and our cars have never run better. Pricing is reasonable and they do a thorough job no matter the task. There were many places we took the cars before stumbeling upon Stu's, but my fiance and I agree 100% that this is the only place we'll ever take our vehicles for service in the future."

"We have Classic cars, such as a 1939 Packard, a Model A Ford, and a 1954 Chevy Bel Air, as well as modern cars.

Believe me, there are not many places that I would take our Classic cars to be fixed, but Stu's is one of them."

"Stu's rebuilt my transmission about 2 years ago and unfortunately, a plate broke a few days ago. Even though I was not happy about that, Stu's was very gotod about repairing it again and gave me a discount on labor and out of general good will. They were prompt with the repair and got the car back to me within 3 days. Transmission work is always expensive but Stu's treated me right. I recommend them for your future work."

"My car which I have had for 11 years has been good to me and now it needs repair every so often, it is like when a person gets sick you get well by fixing the problem, thank you Stu's for the honesty and great repair that you always give me, I am one happy customer. You know when you go to a repair shop sometimes they tell you that you need this and that but Stu's is a very honest and will fix the problem and your on your way, I know the car always runs smoother, and is one happy car, thanks again, I recommend whoever reads this to go to Stu's, you won't regret it."

"They are the best! Couldn't ask for better service, expertise, and pricing.

My story: I brought my beloved 1964 Ford Galaxy (owned for last 27 years) into Stu's not know if I would ever drive it again the grinding and noise coming from under the car was so bad. Stu quickly diagnosed the problem as a worn out U-joint and pinion bearing, found a suitable replacement part, and had my car back to me in several days. Most astounding the cost was reasonable and only a $650 cost. This is less than it costs to replace a key switch or light assembly in many newer cars.

I first started going to Stu's in the 1990's after I got a recommendation from someone at work. They still have my recommendation."

"ROUGH WEEK 3 OR THE CARS IN THE FAMILY NEEDED WORK...TIM AND THE GUYS AT STU'S GOT THEM ALL DONE..AND FOR LESS THAN PROJECTED. AS USUAL."

- James A., LONG BEACH 4 star review for Su's automotive repair Long Beach by Demand Force



"A good mechanic is a dime a dozen, but a great mechanic is a rare find. And a rare find we have found at Stu's. At Stu's, dealing with Tim is a pretty simple process. His knowledge and expertise is evident from the moment we came in contact with him. We recently took in our 2002 Suburban for a major transmission service, tire rotation and oil change. The price quoted was reasonable and fair AND the car servicing was completed before it was promised. The dealership isn't always the best place to take your car if you have a great mechanic. We would, and have, recommended this shop to family, friends, and co-workers. Taking your car to Stu's takes the guesswork out of whether your car will be repaired properly or not. To us, there is no other place to take your car for repairs."

- Fred & Karen B., LAKEWOOD 5 star review for stu's automotive repair long beach



"Like my great grandfather, grandfather, and father before me. I now take my cars (all 11 of them!) to Stus. Honesty and integrity. They don't rely on fancy advertising to get you into their shop. Instead, they do quality work and get repeat customers who tell their friends as well. Oh yeah, don't forget the Long Beach Police cars they do as well. Don's speed in Long Beach, chances are that's a Stus Transmission in the LBPD car behind you! Thank you guys."

"I came to Stu's shop for a slipping transmission and a request to have it fixed in two days. The car was out of the shop in two days, with all repairs completed, and didn't even have to replace the transmission. Tim the owner was friendly and helpful in explaining what needed to be done and was up front about all costs, he even gave me a military discount. Thanks Stu's for all the help!"

"I have had my Nissan XTerra serviced at a dealership before, but I always felt like their service people were trying to "up sell" me to wring out every last dime they could possibly get from me. That's why Stu's was so refreshing. A friend referred me to this business when I had some trouble with my transmission. Stu's did a free diagnosis and helped me select the right services for my wallet, my safety, and the long-term health of my vehicle. I never felt pressured or misled to pay for more than I needed, and I felt the price was fair and the work was done quickly. I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone in need of high-quality service for their car at a price that is honest and fair. It may not look as shiny and new as the dealership service departments, but don't let appearances fool you -- Stu's is a great value."

- Christine H., LONG BEACH 5 star review for stu's automotive repair long beach



"Its nice to go to a place where when your car is busted, you are given the feeling that everything is going to be taken care of at a fair price.

That was the first feeling I got when I shook hands with Tim at Stu's. He put's you at ease, and then works with you to figure out what your car needs, gives you a no B.S. estimate, gets the work done fast, and gives you the assurance its going to last.

I needed my tranny fixed on my truck, but he also fixed my A/C, did a 30 point inspection, and did all the fluids on my front and rear differentials, and transfer case all for a price that, out the door, was less then what many other places charge for just a transmission!

I will bring my wife's car in for service, bring my car again, and I'm letting my co-workers and friends know how pleased I am with Tim and his crew at Stu's"

"These guys have been getting it right for generations. I first went to Stu's in 1997 for work on a Mazda RX7 transmission. At that time Stu Jr was running the place. Recently I had a reason to go back- for routine service on my 2000 Avalon transmission. Tim is the service manager now and he seems to be carrying on the same high standards. Their service was excellent- then and now. Tim promised my Toyota would be ready by the end of the day if I got to him by noon. I dropped it off at 1130. While Tim's son Jake was dropping me off at my house, he mentioned that they now do general auto repair too. I called Tim back to discusses a few other concerns I had with the vehicle. He said that he could add the oil change but could only diagnose the cold starting problem. All was done by 4PM. I plan on returning to have them fix the starting issue. These guys are old school. I think their facility is pretty much straight out of the 50's but rest assured, it is full of knowledgeable and polite folks who charge a competitive price."

"We moved to Long Beach 18 months ago and needed our car repaired shortly there after. We found Stus and what a great job they have done. We have had 3 of our family cars repaired there. Tim always works to find us the best prices and each time our bill and been less than the estimate. They work hard to ensure they get it fixed, right and as soon as possible. I recently had a problem with my car, called the dealer....I thought he was trying to sell me a new car for the prices he quoted. Tim and his team fixed it in 1 day and I was very happy. First place I call for repair estimate and work is Stus."

"We first brought my car in thinking we had transmission problems (again) Stu had rebuilt trans a few years ago and even tho warranty had expired, offered a discount if that was indeed the problem. It turned out to be a whole different situation. The problems had to do with suspension, etc. We were given a quote with a discount and the work was done quickly. Their communication about the problem and cost was excellent and my car has not driven this nicely in years. I would highly recommend this company and their very skilled and professional persons who work there"

"I really liked this car shop from the moment I pulled in with my car until I drove off the lot I had a good experience. They diagnose your car and let you know what's wrong and how it can be done in a timely manner, they also give you the best pricing which is nice considering most places try to get over priced parts all the time. I never had to call and check on my car they let me know when they were going to start on my car and didn't waste anytime letting me know when it was ready to be picked up. I will alway's come back to Stu's for any car repairs I might need."

"I recently took a gamble on Stu's Transmission because I blew out my engine on my Ford Expedition. Usually, I take my vehicle to the Ford dealer due to negative experiences with other small auto businesses. However, I must say that Stu's Transmission, specifically, Tim the owner, was not only pleasant and professional, he was also very thorough while inspecting my vehicle. They replaced my engine for a reasonable price and it runs better then it ever had before. The last thing I wanted was to drive back to Stu's and complain about problems with my vehicle they had not fixed like other auto shops tend to do. I have had no problems with my vehicle. They completely checked everything from my engine mounts to all the other parts surrounding the engine. I will always use them for anything I need. Tim is the best and one of those hard to find good American guys running a family owned auto shop."

"When the check engine lite came on shortly after the purchase of my 1994 Buick Park Ave I was sure that I had bough a lemon being passed on, but Tim assured me that the problems were minor, and after Stus worked their magic I am now driving my "steal of a deal". I truly believe Stus has the best mechanics in town for both Transmissions ( which my 1977 cj7 jeep will attest to)and all of my engine work. Thanks again."

"The one thing we all want! Good work at a fair price! The shop is busy and the reason they are busy is because they have one standard of work:"Right" You can leave your vehicle and know it will be taken care of, you will know what it needs and the reason it needs whatever work it does. Looking around the shop you will see lots of people hard at work. I would go to Stu's AE Transmission even if I had to wait a week to get my vehicle in there."

"This was my third stop of the day to stop this horrible grinding noise coming from my car, two places told two different stories as to what the noise was. The shop before Stu's told me it was the bushing 480 dollars, a friend of mines told me to go to Stu's who always worked on his car. So I thought what the heck it couldn't get any worse than 480 dollars. I went to Stu's and a gentleman by the name of Tim greeted me with a smile and checked out my car right away. Within 10 min they discovered what the problem was and also called me over to see as well. Within about an hour and a half I was up and running , no more grinding and the car runs like a champ and it was only 200 dollars. I am a happy camper :) Very good customer service"

"Me and my family have been going to Stu's Transmission for over 35 years. They are the best darn auto repair shop this side of the Mississip (maybe on the other side, too) They are honest, reliable, have the best rates and you can always rest assured that whatever they repair on your car will always be what is needed and done right! Their rates are very reasonable and they go over and above the call to duty to repair and serve their customers. Tim is awesome and I always feel confident he will always give my car TLC and the best care and excellent work. Once you go to Stu's you will always go to Stu's...no question about it. Do your car (and yourself) a favor, and check them out, you will be amazed! 5 Stars to you, Stu's!!!!! (More if it was up to me!!!)"

"I was looking for a mechanic to take my 2002 Grand Am G6 ( it has 117,000 miles on it) to because it wasn't performing like it should. I found Stu's by chance and will never take my car any where else from now on!!! The first diagnostic indicated blockage in the catalytic convertor and a few other things. Tim called me with a quote and stuck to it. Once it was running at full power another diagnostic was run which showed the transmission was not able to handle to full power and would have to be rebuilt. I was given a new quote and the work was done in the promised amount of time and cost. I had taken to another shop prior to Stu's and they told me I needed a new transmission and never diagnosed the other problems. Their price was the same as Stu's for less work."

Everything was explained to me as to what was wrong and what they needed to do to fix it.

"A wise man once said that to survive in life you need 2 things.

"A Good DOCTOR and a GREAT MECHANIC!

My  transmission on my 98 Accord had been slipping for sometime, and we all know the fear and terror that it can bring to a car owner.  I looked in the phonebook and noticed Stu's.  I saw that they had great hours, had been opened for over 50 years and were a family run business, so I gave it a go.

They did a free estimate on my Honda gave me an honest price.  I went to 2 other Transmission Co. and let me tell you Stu's prices were so much more reasonable, and they didn't have any hidden costs.

I picked up my car only days later and it runs like new!   Thank you STU'S!"

"I brought my 2001 Ford Escape to the guys at Stu's with just under 150,000 miles on it. I'm no mechanic but I can say it wasn't running well, the air conditioner wasn't working and I was sure it had one tire in the grave. I left it there for a week expecting to need a new transmission. It's a week later and all I can saw is WOW, my baby is new again! The car is running better than she has in years. The brakes are more responsive the suspension is tighter, the AC is keeping me cool and the engine sounds great."

"I have a 1989 Toyota Corolla. It was leaking a lot of oil; the seals, timing belt, and distributor needed to be replaced. Stu's checked it out for me for free, and got the job done within the estimated price range. They made sure everything was done right, even if it took a little extra time. Stu's is very friendly and welcoming; I feel totally comfortable taking my car there if I have any sort of trouble. I know they will tell me what's going on. I highly recommend them!"

"Tim quoted me 1 week and $3000-$3500 for a complete transmission rebuild on my '88 Volkswagen Westfalia van. Not a lot of places want to deal with these older, somewhat finicky, vehicles. After some investigation this seemed to be a competitive price. Bottom line, they got it done 2 days early and almost $200 under budget, $2805 with tax out the door. Can't complain about that. They also offer a better than average warranty, I think."

"My experience at Stu's AE Transmission was VERY positive. The owner, Tim, gave me honest and upfront pricing and explained about the clutch he was installing, and how it saved me some cash. They delivered my car perfectly on time as well. He said it would be ready the next day and BAM, I got a call the next day saying my car was ready. So far I've put a few hundred miles on my new clutch and it's working flawlessly. I will refer anybody who needs transmission work to Stu's."

"Once again, Tim at Stu's AE pulled my fat out of the fire. Alerted me to a BIG timing belt issue on my truck (dealer didn't), fixed that and all the related parts that need to be repaired and replaced while the engine is that far apart and replaced the failing rack and pinion steering piece, which the dealer also failed to notice. They did this quickly and for a very reasonable price. The same work at the dealer would have broken the bank and I would still be wondering if they actually did the work right. Stu's does it right AND guarantees their work. Guess where I'll be going for my work in the future?"

"Once again Tim and the crew at Stu's did a fantastic service and repair on my Audi A4. They performed the normal service and discovered that the motor mount and front axle boot were destroyed. Their quote, which turned out to be the actual cost was a third of what the dealer wanted for the same job. Their expertise, which goes well beyond transmissions is undeniable, which I base on all my past experiences with them. If you need transmission or related repair and routine service, I would highly recommend Stu's Transmission. Since I discovered Stu's, I have decided not to trade my Audi in for a newer model. Anyone who would choose a dealer over Stu's for repairs should seek help from a financial planner to learn more about financial responsibility and value. Thanks Tim and the Crew."

"Tim and the guys at Stu's helped me out with a transmission issue with my Mazda. I had taken to another place and had the transmission replaced. A few months later it started acting up again. Took it back and they said they could find nothing wrong with it. Finally too it to Stu's, fearing the worst. Turns out it was just a minor issue, and they my car back to me in good time and for much less than I was expecting. From now on, I'll be taking my car to Stu's and recommending them to everyone I know.

Thanks guys, Juan"

"I had my suspicions about our car slipping and mis-shifting. Tim and his team confirmed my suspicions suggesting the valve body be replaced. Dropped the car off at noon on a Thursday, had the new valve body installed and the car back to us by 3pm the following day. Although we've only had the car for a day now theres been no issues and the trans shifts like new. Only time and the miles we put on the new valve body will prove if there was no other damages or repairs needed."

"Long story short: Stu's is amazing. After reading the reviews on Yelp and being referred by Jim's in Long Beach, I brought my 2007 Ford Explorer to Stu's last Monday afternoon. They were surprised it was even running because I had no second gear. It should not have moved under its own power, according to Jose, the mechanic who took it for a test drive. 


Tim gave me an estimate which, although painful, was far more reasonable than what I would have gotten from a dealership, and made my car a priority. The transmission was overhauled and rebuilt by Wednesday evening and I was able to go and pick it up for work that night.

Tim worked with me and understood just how much of a financial jam this repair would put me in. He worked with my bank to keep the costs down. He even gave me a discount when he found out that the cost would be higher than his upper-end estimate, to bring it back down inside the estimate. I can't say enough good things about this shop. I will be servicing both my cars at Stu's from here on out."

Yet, as soon as I met Tim, I felt at ease and that I could trust them. Not only did Tim kindly explain what was wrong and could be wrong with my car by filtering it through my car-savvy boyfriend, he also told us a few tricks to using insurance if my car DID end up needing a new transmission (it didn't thankfully). A few discounts later and I feel like I received a very fair price for the work that was done. Although I live in Santa Monica, I would consider taking my car here in the future."

I took my car into Stu's because my car wasn't changing gears properly and was jerky and slipping. Tim had it looked at right away and gave me all my options. They did a major tune up and informed me that my transmission is going out, and eventually, I would need to get it rebuilt. I decided it is time for a new car so I didn't have them rebuild transmission, but, I would totally go back to Stu's for any car problems in the future, I wish I would have known about this place a long time ago! Tim is very straightforward and knowledgeable and seems genuinely interested in providing his customers with optimal car care and service!!"

"I brought my PT Cruiser to Stu's for a new transmission, and had some other work done while they were at it. I chose them because of a great review I got from a friend of mine who told me that they not only do great work, but that the manager, Tim, is very personable and easy to understand. I also looked them up on the Internet and found their very impressive website! Once I got there I found out that she was right about Tim. It feels really good to be able to communicate easily with the people you're leaving your car with! After they checked it out, I agreed to leave it with them, and they set me up with Hertz at a discounted rate. All the repairs were done in a timely fashion, but the crew struggled for days with the computer, even though I'd just had a new one put in by the dealer the week before. After having a couple of experts look at it, it became clear that the computer was faulty, and though we were all frustrated over how long this was taking, they still handled getting my car back to the dealer to have the faulty computer replaced and programmed. These guys put everything they had into making sure that my car didn't leave their shop until it was in perfect running order, and I really appreciate that."

"A good friend of mine recommended Stu's Transmission to me after I told him I was hearing a loud "clanking" noise when I shifted my SUV into gear. I have to tell you, I'm very skeptical when it comes to mechanics and frankly I put them in the same category as a shifty car salesman. Well let me tell you, the crew at Stu's are just awesome!! Tim had his team of mechanics diagnose my SUV immediately and what I thought was going to be a $2800+ repair turned into $450. Tim was very cordial and most importantly honest. Time took me out into the shop area and physically showed me the issue with my vehicle. To top things off, they completed the repair on my vehicle within a couple hours.


If you're looking for an honest and upfront place to get your vehicle repaired with exceptional service and very fair pricing, you will take your vehicle Stu's because they are my new vehicle maintenance crew. They provide additional services beyond transmission issues.

Tim told me to bring the Ford in so they could test it. AAMCO had
already informed me that I would need a new transmission at $$$$$.$$. Tim gave me a quote that was considerably less. The work was done quickly and professionally. The staff was so courteous, obliging and answered every question I could think to ask.

I am so very pleased with Tim and everyone who works there. They made me feel like family. A special thanks to all of you.

"I have brought my 1995 Ford F150 truck to Stu's Transmission twice this year, once for clutch work and another time for a tuneup. They did a great job and my truck is running better than ever. They solved a problem that no other place was able to solve regarding my clutch. I didn't tell them about the problem because I thought my truck was just getting old. Now it shifts smoothly. After the tuneup my truck is running like new. After driving home, there was a problem with the power steering pump that they installed. I brought the truck back, no hassle, no excuses, no problem, pump replaced, same day. Stu's Transmission prices are not cheap and work is not rushed, however the value of their work is good and the wait is worth the time."

"My pickup truck is 41 years old and thanks to lifelong care at Stu's she has her original transmission!


When I wanted to get a new mechanic I called Stu's for a referral and was pleased to find out they now do everything under the hood. I took my truck in on Monday, with no appointment, was told that because of the parts needed and various things that needed to be done that it would be several days before she would be done. I was called two days later to pick her up and the cost came in a full third UNDER the estimate. I have recommended Stu's to dozens of people and all of those who have gone have thanked me."

"My transmission began having issues to where my car would not move into gears and was slipping, I took my car to the dealer who had given me a very high price to pay to replace the transmission. Boy was I sick, so I began looking on Yelp and found Stu's transmission, who had nothing but excellent reviews. What also caught my eye is the ARC 180day program to help with paying over 6 months instead of having to pay a lump sum at one time. So I called up the shop and spoke to Tim, who eased my mind every step of the way, excellent customer service and no fast talking. He did not try to seel me something that I did not need, nor did he make promises that he could not keep. He kept me aware of what was going on with my car every step of the way. The warranty is awesome better then the transmission chain stores like Aamco. I am so glad I took my time to look into the reviews and came across Stu's transmission Service, from now on he will be my one stop shop!"

Though I must admit (sometimes) the initial estimate doesn't cover the end cost, their work is impeccable and they have a through knowledge to diagnose vehicles with extreme accuracy. They also don't BS or recommend services you don't really need, which we greatly appreciate. Great work for a fair price, and that's why we are loyal to Stu's :)"

"I was searching for a business to repair my car, it appeared that I had a transmission problem because I could not get my 2005 Chrysler 300 out of gear. I had a tow truck driver bring my car in to Stu's, entered the office to handle the particulars and the owner knew exactly what the problem could be. Funny thing the dealer had plenty of these parts in stock. My paperwork listed as possible issue Shift interlock , upon research on the internet this is a common problem for my model and reviews indicate this could cost anywhere from $200 to $500 but the part is only $19.99.The amount of work to get to this small pink part appeared to be removing the whole gear shift area with all of the console in center of car. This appeared to be very labor entensive because of alot of small parts and screens. I was quoted and charged a reasonable price $360. I was so impressed by the friendly customer service I received, i needed a ride home and Tim had his son drop me off. His son was a very pleasant youngman and we had nice conversation as he drove me home. I received a call that evening with all the particulars for the work, the parts, the EGR valve that I had replaced and they had it ready the next day. I picked it up the following day on my payday. When I arrived for pick up, Tim had replaced my windshield wipers. My car is 8 years old and my warranty has long passed with 120,000 miles on my car. I had been going to the dealer and now it was time to find a good mechanic shop to do repairs on my car. My car has served me well with only basic maintenance and I want to keep it that way. I have found my automotive repair shop and it is Stu's. Don't hestitate to bring your car in to this shop. I told the ladies at work about this automotive shop and passed their cards around. Stu's is now the ladies mechanic. Another co-worker is going to bring her car in for transmission problems but I told her they do everything."

"They say it is hard to find a good doctor and even harder to find a good and honest mechanic.. Well I recently took my 2004 Dodge Neon aka her to Stu's. See when I bought my car with only 4 miles on it and it is my 1st NEW car therefore it is family. Fast forward to 6 years and 101,000miles later. Mechanical problems are beginning to arise and I don't trust just anyone to work on her. I can honestly say that when I leave her in the capable hands of manager Tim and his mechanics, I know my car will be well cared for and to top that the work is affordable. In these difficult economic times, that is more important then ever before. Reliable, trustworthy and affordable you can't beat it. Give them a try and I bet you will be plesantly impressed."

"I was very pleased to find a realiable auto shop. For females it is a hardship to not get ripped off when seeking repairs. I recently was having transmission problems and went to a few shops for estimates. I was told everything from the radiator was damaged to my engine was worn out and the cost to repair was even more crazy. Finally I just goggled reliable auto repair, long beach and Stu came up immediately. There was nothing but good reviews on there and mostly by other females. From the time I walked into his shop I felt at home and he respected my car and situation as much as I did. 24hours later I picked up my car and did not have to drain the bank account to do so. I am so glad to have found this garage. My car just hit over 10,000 miles and its good to know I am going to have someone to rely on for its future repairs."

"Wow, Stu's AE Transmission is amazing. Tim was very knowledgable and helped me get my 1995 VW Rialta repaired, which is a very difficult job, compounded by the fact that parts for a 20 year old RV are hard to come by.

Tim went above and beyond to make sure that my RV was fixed in time for Christmas so that we can use it to take a vacation.

To top it off, they have a 3 year warranty — 12 months/12,000 mile full warranty, and then an additional prorated 2 year/24,000 mile warranty on top of that. Plus, the price was better than anywhere else I've found.

Long story short,

If you have any transmission issues, you can't go wrong at Stu's!"

"I have been taking my transmission work to Stu's for 40 years and have been completely satisfied each and every time with the quality of work and service. Recently, the check engine light appeared on my 2003 Audi A4 Quattro and after a review by the dealer, it was determined be a bad Torque Converter. This meant a complete transmission rebuild. The Dealer quoted $9,000 (Yes $9,000). My past experience with Audi is that no one but the dealer can work on Audi transmissions because of their complexity. I took a chance and contacted Tim at Stu's Transmission and was pleasantly surprised to hear that Stu's is one of the only independent auto repair shops in SoCal that work on Audi transmissions. Having a perfect reputation with me, I immediately went to Stu's for an estimate. The quote was $3,500 for a complete rebuild so, I immediately left the car for repair. One week later the work was completed under the estimate for $3,200. Tim also services various other issues during the rebuild process the saved me labor cost. I couldn't be more happier once again. If you don't go to Stu's for work on your car, you need to have your mental state examined. Glen in Fullerton, CA"

"Stu's A&E Transmission came highly recommended from my mechanic who had nothing but good things to say about the owner Tim. I was apprehensive to believe that a transmission shop would deliver on her promise of expertise, however, what I found was even better - expertise and integrity! Tim spoke to me like a friend and immediately earned my trust. The work was done early, at the low end of his estimate, with no surprises. My VW Westfalia drives great - Thanks Tim!"

They solved a problem that no other place was able to solve regarding my clutch. I didn't tell them about the problem because I thought my truck was just getting old. Now it shifts smoothly. After the tuneup my truck is running like new. After driving home, there was a problem with the power steering pump that they installed. I brought the truck back, no hassle, no excuses, no problem, pump replaced, same day. Stu's Transmission prices are not cheap and work is not rushed, however the value of their work is good and the wait is worth the time."

I feel very confident in the work that was done, and will take my vehicle back for any future repairs needed."

"My pickup truck is 41 years old and thanks to lifelong care at Stu's she has her original transmission!


When I wanted to get a new mechanic I called Stu's for a referral and was pleased to find out they now do everything under the hood. I took my truck in on Monday, with no appointment, was told that because of the parts needed and various things that needed to be done that it would be several days before she would be done. I was called two days later to pick her up and the cost came in a full third UNDER the estimate. I have recommended Stu's to dozens of people and all of those who have gone have thanked me."

"My transmission began having issues to where my car would not move into gears and was slipping, I took my car to the dealer who had given me a very high price to pay to replace the transmission. Boy was I sick, so I began looking on Yelp and found Stu's transmission, who had nothing but excellent reviews. What also caught my eye is the ARC 180day program to help with paying over 6 months instead of having to pay a lump sum at one time. So I called up the shop and spoke to Tim, who eased my mind every step of the way, excellent customer service and no fast talking. He did not try to seel me something that I did not need, nor did he make promises that he could not keep. He kept me aware of what was going on with my car every step of the way. The warranty is awesome better then the transmission chain stores like Aamco. I am so glad I took my time to look into the reviews and came across Stu's transmission Service, from now on he will be my one stop shop!"

"We looked long and hard for a number of years for a mechanic that we could call with confidence. Our search ended with Stu's. Though I must admit (sometimes) the initial estimate doesn't cover the end cost, their work is impeccable and they have a through knowledge to diagnose vehicles with extreme accuracy. They also don't BS or recommend services you don't really need, which we greatly appreciate. Great work for a fair price, and that's why we are loyal to Stu's :)"

"Great Experience"

Mike H., LONG BEACH 5 star review for stu's automotive repair long beach



"I was searching for a business to repair my car, it appeared that I had a transmission problem because I could not get my 2005 Chrysler 300 out of gear. I had a tow truck driver bring my car in to Stu's, entered the office to handle the particulars and the owner knew exactly what the problem could be. Funny thing the dealer had plenty of these parts in stock. My paperwork listed as possible issue Shift interlock , upon research on the internet this is a common problem for my model and reviews indicate this could cost anywhere from $200 to $500 but the part is only $19.99.The amount of work to get to this small pink part appeared to be removing the whole gear shift area with all of the console in center of car. This appeared to be very labor entensive because of alot of small parts and screens. I was quoted and charged a reasonable price $360. I was so impressed by the friendly customer service I received, i needed a ride home and Tim had his son drop me off. His son was a very pleasant youngman and we had nice conversation as he drove me home. I received a call that evening with all the particulars for the work, the parts, the EGR valve that I had replaced and they had it ready the next day. I picked it up the following day on my payday. When I arrived for pick up, Tim had replaced my windshield wipers. My car is 8 years old and my warranty has long passed with 120,000 miles on my car. I had been going to the dealer and now it was time to find a good mechanic shop to do repairs on my car. My car has served me well with only basic maintenance and I want to keep it that way. I have found my automotive repair shop and it is Stu's. Don't hestitate to bring your car in to this shop. I told the ladies at work about this automotive shop and passed their cards around. Stu's is now the ladies mechanic. Another co-worker is going to bring her car in for transmission problems but I told her they do everything."

- Junior G., LAKEWOOD 5 star review for stu's automotive repair long beach



"They say it is hard to find a good doctor and even harder to find a good and honest mechanic.. Well I recently took my 2004 Dodge Neon aka her to Stu's. See when I bought my car with only 4 miles on it and it is my 1st NEW car therefore it is family. Fast forward to 6 years and 101,000miles later. Mechanical problems are beginning to arise and I don't trust just anyone to work on her. I can honestly say that when I leave her in the capable hands of manager Tim and his mechanics, I know my car will be well cared for and to top that the work is affordable. In these difficult economic times, that is more important then ever before. Reliable, trustworthy and affordable you can't beat it. Give them a try and I bet you will be plesantly impressed."

Stu's did what they said they would and took the time to explain their work and what the truck needed to be repaired. They lived up to their reputation as the best auto repair around. Now Stu's offers full service and I will be taking my vehicles there for all repairs."

"I was very pleased to find a realiable auto shop. For females it is a hardship to not get ripped off when seeking repairs. I recently was having transmission problems and went to a few shops for estimates. I was told everything from the radiator was damaged to my engine was worn out and the cost to repair was even more crazy. Finally I just goggled reliable auto repair, long beach and Stu came up immediately. There was nothing but good reviews on there and mostly by other females. From the time I walked into his shop I felt at home and he respected my car and situation as much as I did. 24hours later I picked up my car and did not have to drain the bank account to do so. I am so glad to have found this garage. My car just hit over 10,000 miles and its good to know I am going to have someone to rely on for its future repairs."

"Again something goes wrong with one of my cars so I call Tim up for a rough estimate on what I think is the problem so I can save up the money to get it fixed.A couple of months later when I have the money I brought in to Tim for a real estimate,well I was right on with what was wrong and Tim gave me a accurate estimate(which was actually less then the first guess).It took Tim and his guys a little longer then he thought but they finished the job and never changed the price(they work hourly)on top of that they cleaned my car before giving it back to me."

They checked my car and told me of things they found that would need doing "at some point" but there was no pressure to get it done"NOW" like my old mechanics. Thank you for making this xmas a bit less stressful! We'll definetly be back :)"

"Wow, Stu's AE Transmission is amazing. Tim was very knowledgable and helped me get my 1995 VW Rialta repaired, which is a very difficult job, compounded by the fact that parts for a 20 year old RV are hard to come by.

Tim went above and beyond to make sure that my RV was fixed in time for Christmas so that we can use it to take a vacation.

To top it off, they have a 3 year warranty — 12 months/12,000 mile full warranty, and then an additional prorated 2 year/24,000 mile warranty on top of that. Plus, the price was better than anywhere else I've found.

Long story short,

If you have any transmission issues, you can't go wrong at Stu's!"

"I have been taking my transmission work to Stu's for 40 years and have been completely satisfied each and every time with the quality of work and service. Recently, the check engine light appeared on my 2003 Audi A4 Quattro and after a review by the dealer, it was determined be a bad Torque Converter. This meant a complete transmission rebuild. The Dealer quoted $9,000 (Yes $9,000). My past experience with Audi is that no one but the dealer can work on Audi transmissions because of their complexity. I took a chance and contacted Tim at Stu's Transmission and was pleasantly surprised to hear that Stu's is one of the only independent auto repair shops in SoCal that work on Audi transmissions. Having a perfect reputation with me, I immediately went to Stu's for an estimate. The quote was $3,500 for a complete rebuild so, I immediately left the car for repair. One week later the work was completed under the estimate for $3,200. Tim also services various other issues during the rebuild process the saved me labor cost. I couldn't be more happier once again. If you don't go to Stu's for work on your car, you need to have your mental state examined. Glen in Fullerton, CA"

"Tim understood how I cared for my car. He explained to me in detail what his garage does vs. what the cheap option is. Stu's AE wont even entertain the idea of doing a discount job of using a used transmission from the junkyard. They have a 60+ year reputation to protect. That rep is not worth making any cheap sale. He does his job right, and they guarantee it with 3 years. He has a new returning customer in me for ANY issues I have."

With that said, my carburetor and fuel pump both blew at the same time and while i wasn't expecting my car to be ready any time soon, I received call from Tim that following week telling me that not only had the carb been completely rebuilt but the fuel pump had been refurbished. This is after the guys at Stu's redid the linkages on my transmission in one working day. Good, fast, and courteous. I'll be coming back for a loooong time."
