The guys at Rapid Transmission were able to fix a whining noise I had with my car. The price was very good and the work was done quickly. I really liked that they spent the time to explain exactly what needed to be done and did not try to sell me things I did not need. This is a great shop!

Rapid Transmissions rebuilt the C4 hooked to the 302 in my 74 Maverick. They did a high stall converter and shift kit with a 1 year warranty. No damage to the car in shop and the transmission upshifted and downshifted back home through SR 74 no prob...

These guys were great. I took my 2001 Mustang in to their Balboa facility and everything was expained, done on time and they were cheaper than the dealership. The car is running as well as it ever did. Thanks Rapid.

My Jeep Grand Cherokee broke down and Rapid was recommended. They were wonderful on the phone and got my Jeep in right away. The cost of repairs were considerably less than my dealership and the transmission works perfectly. I got my Jeep back in just a few days as promissed. These guys are Great!

Transmission has a 90 day warranty from the wrecking yard. RT gave 60 days. Reported to Bureau of Automotive Repair for faulty workmanship.Their story and mine far, far apart. Unwilling to fix the shift cable without additional money. Rapid took almost two weeks with little communication. No respect.

They installed a used tranny and charged me $2000, The replaced auto trans would not shift in warm weather, I took it back to them several times and they could not fix it, so they started getting mad at me for bringing it back, so the last time I brought it back they told me they fixed it but they never did, so now I have to manually shift my automatic and I'm out $2000. Also they would not give me an estimate until they had the tranny out, by then it was too late to go somewhere else. DO NOT TAKE YOUR CAR TO RAPID TRANS!!!!

They charged me $3000 to rebuild the transmission in Pontiac Sunfire! I made the mistake of getting other estimates after they started the work. Other estimates: $1200-$2000. If you know nothing about cars and have deep pockets, come to this place.

When my husband was out of town and something happened with the car I took it to Rapid Transmissions to see if they could help me. Having no knowledge of cars I called them on the phone first to feel them out. They were VERY helpful, took their time with me trying to see just what was going on. And then when I took the car in they were even nicer in person. GREAT customer service and priced fair compared to others in the area.

I didn't get service done here because my car didn't need extreme repair but I wanted everyone to know how sweet the people were here. they showed me that the problem with my car was minor (a hose) they didn't cheat me and pointed me to someone who could fix it fast. I will go to them if I even do have bigger problems!!

VERY SATISFIED I took my 2004 Cherokee to my regular shop because of noise when driving. My mechanic told me the noise was coming from the transmission and recommended Rapid. I took my Jeep to the Kearny Mesa shop because it's close to where I work. The guys at Rapid had the repairs done in just a few days at far less cost than what I was quoted at the dealership. So far so good! My jeep runs perfectly again. The guys at Rapid were pros from start to finish. Good Job!!!

Dave and Chad are GREAT!!! Excellent customer service :) I brought my car in and they checked it out for FREE. Dave showed me exactly what they found during the check out; and what they needed to do to next. I called around and checked pricing and Rapid was the best BY FAR. They fixed my car and had it back to me the next day...my car feels like new again - and the pricing was EXCELLENT. I would recommend this place to ANYONE!!! Fair pricing and fixed right the first time!!!

When I lived in the area, I brought my civic here to get checked out. I thought it was going to cost an arm and a leg, but I was surprised to when I saw the bill. $150 less than what another transmissions shop had quoted me for! Awesome!

I took my truck into Rapid less than a year ago already knowing she needed a tranny rebuild. They offered a fair price for rebuilding the existing tranny with a guarantee so we went ahead with it. The transmission worked great for some time and then developed shifting problems. I took it back into them and right away, while I waited, they began to investigate the problem. Long story short; the problem turned out to be chaffed/worn/broken wires in the wiring harness that controls the transmission. I know enough about vehicles to know that this issue probably wasn't caused by them rebuilding the tranny but rather just of old age and being worn. Nonetheless they fixed it for free, the same day, and they had to drop the tranny to do it! Great job on their part!

Had 200+k on my tundra, it started shifting funny getting off the freeway-panic time. I was close to la mesa and took it to rapid transmission thinking the cost would be more than the truck was worth but the truck ran good so I had them look at it. Mark the service writer called the next day and said it didn't need an overhaul but a small sensor and he could fix it the same day. Price was a lot less than expected and the truck has been running good since then. Thanks Rapid

Rapid Transmissions is a supporter of the Warrior Foundation Freedom Station, and so am I. That was the 1st reason I brought my vehicle to Rapid. Also the fact they have been in business over 40 years in San Diego, so they must be doing something right. They were very polite, and accommodating. They treated me like family and they did a free external inspection of my vehicle. They also did a complete transmission service to include the pan gasket, labor etc. for only $69.95. That is less than I pay for a tank of gas. I highly recommend Rapid! I know nothing about cars and they were honest! Thank you so much.
