I had my truck worked on by Cottman they rebuilt my transmission and replaced the clutch. when we got the truck back it was making a noise, I tuck it back in and they said to drive it and to let them know of any changes. well less then 7000 miles later the transmission went out and they would not stand behind their work. also when I had it repaired the clutch had less then 10% left. this should not be the case with less then 7000 miles! I...Read more

We had gone to four different places and were given four different diagnostic answers Jody found the problem. We are very pleased and he was a perfect gentleman who explained everything in detail to us I highly recommend their services and will continue to use them should the need arise. M. Coleman
My son's Grand Cherokee had an intermittent problem. It would not downshift at times, stayed in 2nd. Didn't matter if it was cold or hot. I checked the fluid and it was perfectly clean and did not smell burned. Went to Cottman's and very quickly was told it needed rebuild. So after $1400 work, the car continued the same problem. I took it back, over several weeks, 3 or 4 times. Each time they told me it was fixed. I even took it to a different...Read more

Don't go there, you will most likely be sorry. These people use the same cheap transmission fluid in all of their rebuilds. Their rebuilds do not last. Don't waste your money. It is almost guaranteed that you will have problems before or shortly after your warranty expires. They use cheap aftermarket parts that are inferior to OEM. Most of their technicians have little or no certifications in automotive repair. There ane many complaints against...Read more

This place is a total joke. The nasty guy at the counter named Charley is the most hateful person I have ever met. He has lied to me so many times about getting my son's car fixed it is ridiculous. Let me tell you the story of Charley first night I went in there my son needed a consigned for the six month loan while we are waiting for the answer to come he goes into the shop and pops the top on a beer and starts drinking it. Now this was my...Read more
The transmission in my vehicle started kicking a bit and some warning lights came on. I took it first to my primary mechanic who I trust very much. He plugged in his code-reader and said he got codes for sensor solenoids which is something they don't do in that shop. I took my vehicle to Cottman. A mechanic named Randy was the only one there, the owner, Steve, was out. Randy spent an hour messing with my car and finally said he couldn't get his...Read more
I dealt directly with the owner Steve Rohloff 11/27/2013 DO NOT GO HERE HE WILL ROB YOU or TRY TO!!!!!! I went to them to replace the rear Engine oil seal. Spoke to the owner personally, he advised that this would be finished in 4 days and my auto would be ready for inspection by 4:30 pm on Oct 10. This did not happen. The auto was not touched until after the weekend. I was advised early on Oct 17 that my auto would be ready for inspection at...Read more
Unfortunately I let Cottman Transmission know that I was traveling and nowhere to stay. Quoted and charged me $1800 dollars service charge up front. Two days later, another $2500 (upfront) for parts. Told by owner(Steve) that the reputation was the best in the Columbus area. If this is the case, you need to pray that you do not break down in the Columbus area or avoid the area if at all possible. I don't have my vehicle back yet so this may not...Read more
