"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!"
- Doug O., LONG BEACH
"Tim and his crew were friendly, trustworthy, reliable, and repaired our SUV. I would definitely recommend Stu's AE Transmission."
- Debbie & Dean C., LONG BEACH
"I had a full fluid exchange done on my corvette automatic trans. @ Stu's. The service was excellent. Tim, the owner was very friendly,honest & didn't mind answering any questions I had.And as an added bonus, the final bill was less than the estimate.My long time mechanic recently retired,with my first experience @ Stu's, I have found my new auto mechanic. I highly recommend Stu's for all your auto repair needs."

"Met or exceeded my expectations."
- Larry C., LONG BEACH
"Service was great! Everyone was friendly and helpful. Tim was extremely helpful getting us in, and out quickly. The technicians were all friendly and reviewed the problem with us, showing us the worn parts. We had the truck back in just a couple of days and are very happy with the work that was done."
- Teresa M., LONG BEACH
"We were referred to Stu's AE Transmission by Jim at Herb & Red's. wee were impressed by the friendliness and professionalism of Tim and his crew at Stu's throughout the entire process. They communicated with us when something new came up. They promptly informed us of all charges related to new issues. The repairs came in under estimate and earlier than expected. As a female, I felt that they were very honest with me and did not try to take advantage of me - I appreciate that!
Great service all around and would go back there in a second if we needed transmission or AC work done."
- Josi & Spencer I., LONG BEACH
"Honest and fair. I was not talked into a major event and or sent away with nothing. The mechanic was savvy and tho it was cryptic, he figured out the problem and i was back again with my car. It doesn't always end in 1000-s of dollars out ouf your pocket!"
- Paula R., LONG BEACH
"My truck was in a different shop 2 times for 25 days and still not fixed when I picked it up. I should have gone to Stu's first!! Stu's diagnosed the problem faster than promised and fixed the problem right the first time. Now that I know how awesome you guys are, I will be back for basic service (no more transmission issues for me). Thank you Tim and team."
- Theresa R., LONG BEACH
"Let me start by saying that I have a 1995 euro and that it's very difficult to find anyone who wants to work on. I was referred to Tim by my regular mechanic. This guy knows his stuff he takes the time to explain to you the issues and will not drag you thru the dirt on pricing. I would highly recommend stu's to anyone looking for a fair and honest mechanic."
- Josh S., LOS ANGELES
"Got a thorough explanation of what was wrong . . . required a little extra work above quote, but was necessary and price was fair. So far, car runs real well."
- Billy W., LONG BEACH
"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."
- Joel G., LONG BEACH

"My overall experience with Stu's was fantastic. Tim provided excellent customer service and with it being an extensive repair, he made sure it was available as soon as possible. A sudden major repair is quite stressful and Stu's made the process as easy as possible. I feel very confident in the work that was done, and will take my vehicle back for any future repairs needed."
-Liz D., LONG BEACH
"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."

- Charmaine M., LONG BEACH
"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!"
- Shawn W., LONG BEACH
"Courteous, professional, and very knowledgeable. Seem to be honest and guarantee their work."
"Tim & his staff are the best. I will not take my car to any other shop."
- Mark T., LONG BEACH
"Friendly service, delivered exactly what they promised. Very good job!"
- Guido Q., LONG BEACH
"HONEST, PROMPT, AND A FRIENDLY MANAGER. I WOULD RECOMMEND TO FRIENDS. THEY LIKED MY DOG TOO."
- Chris W., LONG BEACH
- Richard & Karen F., LAKEWOOD
"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 :)"
- Jessica H., LONG BEACH
"I own 3 cars and i take them all to this shop to be serviced wether its an oil change or major work they do it all and im satisfied every single time.. Thank you Stu's for being such a reliable shop!!"
- Kristina S., LONG BEACH
Mike H., 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."
- Rhonda J., PARAMOUNT
"I have work done on my car here for over 20 years and they always do a great job. They are honest and the car is always ready when promised."
"Tim always goes above and beyond with every repair. Been working with me for a long time to diagnose a lingering problem and finally helped me track it down. Simply the best in the business."
- Ian B., LONG BEACH
"Tim was knowledgeable and helpful and I am glad to recommend Stu's without reservation."
"I think they are what they say they are, they have a high quality service. Its been two weeks since they fixed my transmission problem with my car. Just realized the great job they have done."
- Junior G., LAKEWOOD
"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."
- Nettie W., LONG BEACH
"A+ service, very professional and most important very honest about the vehicle's evaluation and recommendations. Prices are very competitive compared to other shops but you get the best quality in workmanship."
- Marouane B., LONG BEACH
" A+. Finally, a mechanic I can trust! I've been lookin for a mechanic who can repair just about everything on my classic 1966 Mustang. I came in to Stu's AE because I lost 3rd gear and knew I needed my tranny rebuilt. Tim, the owner, did an excellent job making sure my car was repaired quickly, at a low price, and to my satisfaction. I'm very happy with my experience. I'll DEFINITELY be going back to Stu's AE for all my automotive repairs."
- Travis N., LONG BEACH

- Christine H., LONG BEACH
"Excellent service, reliable, and honest. I feel I can trust Tim and his crew to do what needs to be done to get my old run-down Ford Focus back on the road."
- Patrick K., LONG BEACH
"I should have went to Stu's first and anyone who doesn't might be sorry. I had my transmission re-built at another place and it didn't last 6 months. 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."
- Joe S., GARDEN GROVE
"I've bin doing business with Stu's sense 1969, and they continue to do a great job. Thanks Tim & Crew!"

"Stu's Transmission does quality work. Tim and his crew are honest , know what they are doing and take pride in doing it right a reasonable cost. We are glad to have found Stu's Transmission . They can fix just about any car including our 1957 Continental Mark II. Tim is a pleasure to work with."
"I can't even say how happy I am with the fantastic work done at Stu's. Everything is always thoroughly explained and so fairly charged. I tell everyone of how much I love taking my car there. I have never been disappointed at all. I urge anyone who is wondering about trying them out to do so and I bet you'll never take your car anywhere else!"
- David and Diane R., LONG BEACH
"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."
- Nettie W., LONG BEACH

"The place to go for transmission problems."
- Joe H., LOS ALAMITOS

- David B., LONG BEACH
"A+ service! They did a fantastic job replacing my clutch and had the best price in town. I can see why they are so highly recommended."
- Heather F., LONG BEACH
"I found that you guys took very good care of me. Without ever having met or done business with you guys, you made me feel very comfortable. Being a woman who doesn't know anything about cars I feel that you were fair in pricing and fixed the problem. I will remain a loyal customer from here on and recommend you highly. Thank you for being honest, fair and reputable business!"
- Georgiana G., TUSTIN
"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."
- Mike B., LONG BEACH
"My car decided to quit, 2 days before the xmas holiday weekend..Stu's not only took it in without hesitation, they had my new starter installed, oil and transmission fluids changed and back to me by friday afternoon! 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 :)"
- Judy R., LONG BEACH
"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!"
- Jason M., PLACENTIA
"I love taking my car to get service here. they know their stuff!! they never tell me that they have to try and figure out what the problem is like most mechanic places. they know right away what's wrong w/my car when i take it in."
- Lidia L., LONG BEACH
"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"
- Glen L., FULLERTON

- Beverly C. LONG BEACH
"Having had many a repair facility work on cars it's always a surprise when people do the work they say they will on time and for the expected price. Tim G quoted me a price and stayed there, even when the right thing was to do a little extra work to make it perfect. I would have gladly paid, but that's not his way. Excellent, trustworthy and honest! Highly recommend."
- Darin H., LONG BEACH 4
"Thank You. If your car or truck has a problem take it to Stu's!!!!"
- Dennis M., LONG BEACH
"I went in to get a noise checked out that was coming from my diff. We test drove it and I was told it was my diff so I left it there and the next day it was finished. The sound was gone and I was back on the road. Very good service and good prices. Very good service fixed my car fast and at a good price."
- Juan G., LONG BEACH
"I got recommended Stu's by Debbie at West coast VW. The customer service was excellent and I was guided by Tim the entire process. They explained everything clearly and in ways I could understand. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone having transmission issues. Don't bother with the chain stores."
"Any time i have had problem or a ? they have always takin care of me. my friends and family have used stu's for years!"

"I recently purchased a used vehicle and wanted to get my transmission checked. I went to Stu's by referral from a family member. They were professional, honest and timely. I plan on returning to Stu's for my automotive needs. Thanks guys-my car runs great!"
- Melissa K., LONG BEACH
"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."
- Ulric P., LAKEWOOD
"I made a appointment for 29th, at 4:30pm. Dropped the truck off at the appointment time. It was ready the next day before closing. Great Service!"
- Don N., NORWALK
"Very friendly shop nice work and very honest"
"Tim and his staff are knowledgable, gracious and will treat you and your car's needs with the upmost respect. My 2001 Escape needed transmision work...other places quoted outrageous amounts so upon recommendation, I took it to Stu's. Free estimate, EXTREMELY reasonable, and in a few days my car is running better than ever. Needless to say, I have found myself a new mechanic. Thanks Stu's!
- Maryann P., LONG BEACH
"I have an older car who's parts aren't very easy to find. 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."
