Passion Turned Profession
Several major factors have made Trans Masters Auto Care the comprehensive, trusted shop it is today. Shop owner Rick spent his youth shadowing his dad in his father’s automotive business from its inception in 1980 until 1989. Afterward, he worked as a Ford technician, returning to independent transmission work in 1998. Given his passion for classic cars and drag racing, this was an ideal melding of passion and profession. In the meantime, our prior owner established Trans Masters Auto Care in Encinitas.
Rick became business manager in 2005 and purchased the shop in 2007. In 2019, our shop moved inland to Escondido. Throughout the years, dual ownerships and moves, we’ve continued to offer everything mechanical for every driver. For example, we provide preventive maintenance services and planned periodic repairs for all makes and models. We’re glad to keep your transportation dependable, efficient, and safe through routine oil changes, fluid services, tune-ups, brake pad exchanges, and more. When the time comes for more extensive or unplanned work, we’ll remedy the problem and keep it from becoming more severe with timely repair. Our expert technicians attend to every major system, including the engine, timing mechanism, electrical system, and transmission. You never have to worry about where your unit is going or who’s doing the work. We still build our transmissions in-house. Finally, we’re also your local stop for performance. We offer specialized tuning for hot rods, not requiring emissions compliance. Even better, when we tune the carburetor, we test your car, too. We have a chassis dyno onsite, a feature you likely don’t expect at a shop with a nod to transmissions in its name.
Great Customer Service
The team at Trans Masters Auto Care cares for cars, but even more so for the people who drive them. That’s why we dedicate ourselves to both exceptional mechanical and customer services. When you need conventional automotive work, performance tweaking, or transmission repair, you’ll get the backing of not only our shop but also that stemming from our affiliations with Certified Auto Repair (CAR), the NAPA Auto Care Center network, WorldPac, and the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA). The professional relationships assure you of top-notch parts, exceptional workmanship, and a warranty. Ask whether our 12-month/12,000-miles, 24-month/24,000-miles, or 36-month/36,000-miles guarantee applies to the specific work you’re having done. Other perks include free onsite Wi-Fi and the option of after-hours drop-off/pick-up. You can also pick your payment method. We accept phone app payments, cash, cards, and checks.
