After an excellent initial experience I've taken my all of my vehicles to Mark at SVT over the past year. They work for a fair price and provide excellent service. I've had transmission services done, and regular automotive maintenance, all which turned out great. They prepped my RV for a long trip and it ran flawlessly. My Oldsmobile Silhouette recently set the double transcontinental record by driving from CA to NYC and back to CA in 5 days, and who prepped it? Scotts Valley Transmission. Thanks guys!

These guys do excellent work. They rebuilt the transmission on my `91 Chevy SUV which was juddering and leaking fluid....... it's perfect now. Then I asked them to rebuild the rear axle due to excessive wear (I gotta lot of miles) and that worked out well also. Now they're working on the clunk in my steering and seem to have fixed that issue too! Prices is reasonable the folks I talked with (Ken and John) are friendly and helpful. I`m very satisfied with this place

5 stars! I bring both of my vehicles here and can't rave enough about their honesty and friendly staff. It's hard to find a good Ford diesel shop, this is the place! Thx Mark and staff for always taking care of me.

I have been taking all my vehicles to Scott's Valley Transmission for over a decade and have nothing but positive comments for the work they do, the way they treat their customers and the fair pricing they offer, and the extra effort they expend to get emergency repairs scheduled and completed quickly. I have had many major services done during this time including a 2002 Ford F350 Powerstroke Transmission Rebuild/Upgrade, turbo pedestal and downpipe repairs, and head gasket/injector cup replacement, a 2012 Ford Edge front differential replacement, and various axles rebuilt for a 1997 Jeep TJ as well as a 1972 Corvette rear differential rebuild. All of them have worked flawlessly to date. Wouldn't take my major services anywhere else...

I brought in my 1988 Ford F150 truck as it had a leek in transmission. I just left it there with words: "please fix" and "look around". Guys did incredible work: they went through every piece of transmission, checked everything around it, found things that I've overlooked and fixed them all. After test drive I had impression like it was totally new car :-) Really good job! Thank you! /bow
