Having been a working shop owner of 25 years before retiring, I felt very comfortable working with Rigo and his techs. I know the business inside and out but didn't have the time or diagnostic computers to do this particular repair to my vehicle. They were very good at explaining what was going on and my truck runs great!

I have brought three cars to Scott's Valley Transmission clinic so far. My most recent trip was specifically for a transmission service. Scott's Valley Transmission techs noticed a check engine light, and diagnosed the issues related to that, as well as inspected the brakes and tires on my car. This was above and beyond anything I asked them to do, and they didn't charge me a dime extra. This is one of those treasures in Santa Cruz County that is doing business the right way. Not only this, but the staff is courteous and patient, which is an absolute anomaly in Santa Cruz County. No need to take it to San Jose for quality service, just cruise on down the road to Scott's Valley transmissions, and it's all good. I'm about to bring another car to get worked on there in a few weeks!

Thank you. Your shop has always been friendly, professional, fast and affordable. I always feel well taken care of and trust your shop like no other. This is the reason I drive all the way from San Francisco to get my dodge diesel taken care of.

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...

Mark and Rigo are the bomb! They really take the time to explain the scope of work needed and why. They provide thorough and well written / documented explanations as well as send reminders for recommended work. We have been using them for all of our work trucks for years and will continue to do so. Highly recommend.

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

Very prompt courteous service and they fixed my shift on the column and replaced my ignition switch...

I was able to get an appointment quickly, was treated with utmost courtesy both on the phone and in person, both at the drop off and pickup of my vehicle. The problem with my car was diagnosed and explained to me thoroughly both verbally and in the follow up paperwork. Since they were able to determine the problem quickly, I was only charged half the amount that had been estimated! What’s not to love ❤️! Thank you!
