Complete Auto Repair Long Beach

More than 60 years ago, Stu Ashurst, Sr., opened a small shop re-manufacturing transmissions. His process allowed for quick transmission exchanges, so his customers could avoid having to wait for their transmissions to be repaired. Since that time, Stu’s AE Transmission has become the area’s premier and trusted transmission re-manufacturer. This success hasn’t changed our values and focus; we are still a family-owned and operated company dedicated to providing personal service.

Our owner Tim describes our philosophy this way: “With more than 35 years of personal experience in this field, I have learned one thing for sure: Treat your customers the way you would want to be treated. That is what we are all about—old-fashioned business, honesty, integrity, and a handshake.”

While we can perform any kind of repair or maintenance work on your car, at Stu's, our specialty services are as they have been from the beginning: transmissions, standard and automatic; clutches; differentials; and other drive train components.

If you have a good mechanic and trust him, keep him. We work very closely with other high-quality auto repair facilities in our area, and we will never take their customers. We’ll always be there to help you with your transmission and drivetrain problems.

Stu’s AE Transmission is a member of the Automotive Service Council of California, Automotive Service Excellence, Automotive Service Association, and currently holds an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and the Bureau of Automotive Repair.
