"Your knowledge and expertise is hands down some of the best I have seen in dealing with repair shops! Keep up the good work!"
Greg N - LINCOLN Nebraska

My daughter informed me as she was driving home she heard a 'clunk' and then nothing but a grinding noise until she parked the truck. Fearing the worst, I started calling around, most places wanted me to drive the truck to their shops so they could get a look before giving me any type of information on what the issue might be or involve. When I called Certified Transmission, I talked with Shelly and described to her what my issue was. Once she heard my side, she gave me the "Best Case" to "Worst Case" scenarios of what the issue could be. Her knowledge of vehicles and the parts involved was impressive. She told me the repair process in detail, the parts that would be needed to potential parts, once they had the vehicle and could really get a good look. Talk about impressed! The way Shelly was able to give me the information, I knew that this is where I wanted to take my daughters truck. So I set up an appointment and took the truck in. The time to complete the repairs was only a couple of days. Another plus, as my daughter informed me how difficult it was to be without a truck! When I went to pick up the truck, Shelly went over everything that was done on the repair with the same detail as she did when I initially called. Her knowledge and expertise was showing and really impressed me. This gave me a solid feeling that I took the truck to the right place and that I will take my other vehicle to them if and when the time comes. Thank you Shelly! Your knowledge and expertise is hands down some of the best I have seen in dealing with repair shops! Keep up the good work!

"Thanks again Brad and Shelly. We are so thankful, you were the right place, at the right time, and ready to help. May God bless you and your families for your efforts."

We were on our way home to Southern Missouri from Christmas with my wife's parents in Idaho. It was a bitterly cold day and our transmission in our 2008 Acadia gave out as we pulled off for lunch in Lincoln, NE. Certified Transmissions was recommended from a body shop. Our wagon gave completely out as we pulled in the drive late afternoon. Brad Varn had the shop verify that the transmission needed rebuilt and got one on order for next morning. Yes we were stranded in town for the night and next day but the young lady, Shelly Duba in the office helped us find a motel, mall, and transportation for our family of 3 young boys and baby girl. She very optimistically assured us we would be on the road soon. The next day Brad called us in the afternoon telling us it was almost finished. I picked it up before closing and were back on the road for home very early the next morning. Although it was unfortunate situation, we were very thankful we were able to work with Certified Transmissions and their speedy, helpful, and humorous team. The rebuilt transmission came with very good warranty and was competitively priced with other quotes we got. And no, we were unprepared for a cost like that during our travel so Shelly quickly got us approved for a 0 down, 0% 6 month loan which was an answer to prayer for us. Thanks again Brad and Shelly. We are so thankful, you were the right place, at the right time, and ready to help. May God bless you and your families for your efforts.

"Total cost was pocket change. Based on my dealings with Certified Transmission, I would recommend their services to anyone."
Alan Doster - Lincoln Nebraska

Read Review  

Excellent service and advice. Was told by another auto repair shop that I needed a new transmission. They did not repair or service transmissions but recommended Certified Transmission to do the job. I took my car to them. They examined it and performed a series of tests that concluded that I just needed some minor adjustments instead of a new transmission or complete transmission overhaul. Total cost was pocket change. Based on my dealings with Certified Transmission, I would recommend their services to anyone. They are honest, timely in their repairs, and can be trusted beyond a doubt. Good people, excellent service, and a fair price. What more can I say?

I received a recall on my ignition from Cadillac. I took my car to Husker for the recall and an oil change. While I was at Husker i was asked if I had done my 50,000 mile fluid change. No I had not.. i rescheduled for another day. Took my car in for fluid change, transmission, power steering, flushed brake system, clean throttle IAC value, flushed fuel injectors.. you get my point Husker did it all...I drove my car home to find fluids on my garage floor. Had my car towed to Husker. I was called later the next day to tell me.... ":i needed a new transmission, I dropped 3rd gear, and a new power steering pump" Husker would stand behind nothing!!! I had my car towed to Certified Transmission, Brad was very honest with me. Certified drove my car 5 times and found "Nothing wrong with my transmission, shifted just fine" to make sure there was no doubt of me getting stranded on the road. brad suggested they dropped my transmission pan to look for metal shaving. Upon inspection there were no metal shaving and my transmission filter looked very clean and good". Certified Transmission put my car together and I have been driving it with no problems... Husker cost $7,364.29 Certified Transmission $252.30. I had never heard of Certified Transmission before. I have now told everyone Brad and his guys will always have my business!

I had a problem with my car and all I knew was it had something to do with the Transmission. A family friend recommended Certified. When I took it in they were very nice and told me what was wrong. When they told me it would be in the thousands to fix I wanted to faint, but they broke it down and gave me plenty of options. The people there were so helpful in finding me the cheapest price for a rebuild transmission, It was right around Christmas so not having a car stressed me out. I got a call at least twice a week with updates which was perfect since my car is my baby. Turns out with the help of Shelly working her warranty skills I only ended up having to pay a couple hundred dollars out of pocket. Now my car runs nice and smooth. I'm thankful I found Certified, they really went above and beyond.

Certified Transmission did great work for me at a great price. Brad and Shelly are very helpful and friendly. They were the first transmission shop I've taken my car to and will be my only. Bringing in a 30 year old car with a rough transmission that I was not looking to replace, I was not sure what they would be able to do for me but they corrected my rough shifting quickly and at a much cheaper price than I was expecting. Brad kept in constant contact with me about what was happening with my transmission and informed me of the price it would total out to when done which is really nice. I recommend Certified Transmission to anybody with a problem that is not looking to break the bank. They will get you running smooth in no time.

On arrival at my daughter's in Lincoln, I told a friend of mine that I thought my transmission was failing and needed someone to look at it before returning to the East Coast. He told me to contact Keith at Certified. He was sure they could help. Today it is rare to find a transmission shop that treats a customer with real customer service. Keith treated me with EXCEPTIONAL service at a time when I was really at his mercy. I can only say that Keith went above and beyond what I expected and I really appreciated his help.

I wanted to share my experience with the Certified Transmission staff here in Lincoln, Nebraska. I have been in the customer service industry all my life and I can honestly say you folks are special, specifically Keith and Dana, which are the two gentlemen I had the pleasure of dealing with. Keith was friendly honest and accurate. I felt valued as a customer and he took the time to explain what exactly the situation was with my vehicle and answered all my questions. Dana was just as friendly and even offered to take my Jeep home to do a little spot welding on a bracket for me free of charge on his own time. Certified Transmission went above and beyond my expectations in a very big way. I truly appreciated my experience at Certified Transmission. Keith and Dana are responsible for that. Thank you. I will highly recommend your company to anyone needing your services. Best transmission shop in Lincoln I have ever dealt with. Period. Thanks again!

Keith and the Guys at Certified Transmission did what was the best job I have ever received at a transmission shop in Lincoln. I am the kind of guy who does most of the work myself but I would take every car I had to Keith and them for transmission work. This past December, the Sunday before Christmas, my transmission literally caught fire. I had to have it towed from Beaver Crossing to Lincoln that Monday in the late afternoon. Keith and the transmission technicians there worked through their lunch and had me up and running by 1:30 PM the next day, saved my Christmas, and I was able to make it to my brothers for Christmas because of the hard work they did. Thank you guys. Thank you so much as this may have been the only time for my kids to meet my grandmother.

As we were driving across the United States, we had a transmission breakdown in Lincoln. We were fortunate enough to get in touch with Keith at Certified Transmission. He immediately sprung into action. Because of him and his team efforts I was back on the road just a few hours after having my transmission problem.
