Don!

Can you give of few examples of those who were stranded alongside the road which you can document as due to the faulty work of 'Denton's Transmissions'? If not, do you want to retract your statement?

I had my transmission rebuilt by Denton's last year (Feb) and just last week it crapped out on me. I'll be bringing it back to them tommarow to fix it, hopefully they will stand by their work and fix the problem at no additional cost. A rebuilt trany with less than 5,000 miles should not have had a probelm. I'm willing to give them one more chance to prove their competent. Either way you all will get an update.

There was no part time time job. Some times you have to work late. Stuff happens. Good people try to help people who are in need and something bad happens and all you see is the bad not how a person drops what they are doing bend over backwards to put you first.

I had a friend working on my Ford ZX2 he took the transmission to this Denton's Transmission. I got the car back two,weeks ago and the tranny went out the next day. My friend towed it back to Denton's shop he has had it for about two weeks again, when my friend got the car back the tranny went out again. This man has no idea what he is doing. He also has informed my friend he has no insurance to test drive the vehicles he is working on. For some one who claims he has been in business for over 25 years he rally does not know what he is doing or how to run a business. I will not recommend anyone to this place. I just hope he man's up and gives my friend back his money so that I can get a used tranmission. My son is going off to college and deseperately needs his car back.

If you want your vehicle to have more problems with it. Then it had when you took it in. Take you vehicle to Denton's. Took my vehicle there and the transmission pan came back leaking. Took it back to get new one. He tried to charge another 200.00 for damage they did. After getting it fixed the transmission never quit slipping. Paid 550.00 for nothing!

Cheap prices for a reason, take your work elsewhere and save yourself a major screwing. No integrity what so ever

If you really want to help people,than why not actually fix the problem instead of making it worse to get more money. I brought you a used transmission I paid for. You put it in and the next day you had me come pick it up and you didnt even try it out before you callex me. When i got there,there was no reverse even though there was nothing wrong with the tranny i brought to you. You charged me a total of 500 for a vehicle that needed solenoids. You tried to make me out as a some dumb girl. I know what transaxle is. So you left me with a vebicle that did not have enouvh pressure to switch gears. Now my transmission went out and youre gonna fix it. Im calling it a lawsuit.

AVOID THIS PLACE LIKE THE PLAGUE!

These guys fixed my transmission alright, for about a month and a half when it went out again. The truck came back to me with a major transmission leak and really late shifting, but "that's normal until you break it in". These guys will bend you over and take you around town like it's their job, because let's face it, they sure as hell can't fix transmissions.

This guy is a loser crackhead who makes more money after dark selling drugs out of the shop, his parents must be so proud, those wonderful parents that run the hobby shop in front of the transmission shop that obviously know what Scott is up to and must condon his side business. He drives customers cars around town without a license, the cops took it away for driving under the influence of a controlled substance (speed). The moron got popped again for driving a customers car on a suspended license. Anybody that lets their parking lot turn into a trash pile has no pride in himself so I'm sure he has no pride in his work. Total pile of crap person, go into Ambers and meet him, he's the dumbass playing video poker with costomers money instead of buying the parts that the money was meant for. He lives in the shop now because his wife through him out, tired with being married to a drug addict loser. His latest helper was one of the felon child molesters so don't bring you children around the shop. This guy attracts the scum of the earth, go to the shop around 3am and see whats hanging around in the shadows as the cops watch and do nothing (very little). Don't waste your time and money with this loser, youll regret it. Screws thing up more than he fixes, then it ends up costing more than if a real mechanic fixed it the first time. This punks days are numbered before his dumbass is in jail for a lengthy stay, bottom line, I wouldn't let this mental midget put air in my tires, I'm sure he'd find a way to screw that up.

What a dick, so you admit you do inferior work justified by low prices. What a piece of work you are, how about hanging a sign out front stating that.

Oh man, where do I start? He had my car for over 6 months, constantly giving us the run around of why it doesn't run yet, then he "let his friend test drive" our car, and his friend gets busted with meth, in my car, after midnight on a Tuesday. We get our car back with a different battery, missing all the caps off everything in the engine, and the transmission still doesn't work right! So mad.
