Our Customers Say It Best
Had a great experience with this auto repair shop. Very professional people and they know how to build rapport with their customers. I will definitely go back.
They took care of me and built my trans in under a week, their customer service is unmatchable and I couldn’t be happier with who I chose to take care of my rebuild. Highly recommended. They also have an Instagram so you can see why they’re all about. Thanks guys!
I have been bringing my cars to Rick and his amazing crew for many years. I will only trust my prize 37 Ford Woodie to Trans Masters because they always come through with honesty as integrity. Their work is second to none. I have very high expectations and they deliver every time. It’s even fun to visit the shop and see the really cool cars that they attract. Fives stars to the friendly techs and the new facility.
1st time I called for a quote, Rick was so attentive and patient and actually took so much time to speak with me. He took the time to explain everything and answer all my questions. He made me feel comfortable in trusting them and when I actually took my vehicle in, Curtis was great in getting our vehicles done right away. These guys are so personable. It's hard to find a trustworthy auto mechanic these days and I am looking forward to working with them in the future!

I took the car to Trans Masters Transmissions on the recommendation of my brother in law who lives in the area. I left the car with them for two weeks and they replaced the radiator with a state of the art aluminum one, and installed two high output electric fans. The car now runs beautifully and ne...

I want to first make note that Curtis is a great guy. To be honest, my expectations for good customer service at car shops are fairly low. Curtis proved me wrong here. Curtis's friendliness, approachability, and transparency should be at the top of your list of things to consider when deciding which shop to take your car. My 2011 Saab 9-3 was running like it never had a misfiring issue after the talented guys at Trans Masters replaced an ignition coil and a spark plug within six hours of drop... Read More
I have a 1965 Corvette, and it's my baby - I am very particular about letting someone work on it. My car needed some clutch work and a good friend recommended TransMaster in Encinitas. I took the car there and met with them. I had them replace my original 50 year old transmission with a new modern Tremec 5-speed. They did a great job and I love the way the car drives now. While the car was there, they noticed that it didn't run as well as it should. I took the car back in and they tuned... Read More
