Another vote for ironwood, especially if you have own a Toyota/Lexus or Honda/Acura.

David Word Automotive. Had my cat stolen. Dealership said it would be 3 weeks before they could even look at it. David Word had a replacement installed the next day. Great people.

I once thought I needed a new transmission because there was an awful clanking coming from it at certain speeds. I took it to Weaver Transmission and told them I thought the transmission needed to be rebuilt. The next day they called to say it was just a chassis brace under the car missing a bolt, causing it to rattle at certain speeds.

They charged me like $50 to tighten it when I was fully prepared to pay them thousands to rebuild the transmission. So I'd trust them for transmission work even though I've never actually needed them to do any for me.

Oh wow, that isn’t even that far away from me in the museum district. Amazing. Thanks so much for sharing, seems worth a shot!

I like Carroll’s Auto on AA Blvd and Patterson. There is often a bit of a wait to get seen (usually no more than a few days) but they’ve always done good work on my cars and I never get the feeling that they’re trying to upsell me on anything.

Never required transmission work but I've used Elliot Tire on Glenside for years, Jay/Kit are really nice dudes and have a fleet of really cool loaner cars if you'll be waiting a while.

Call Russell at Staples Mill Auto Service. Fast, to the point, no guesswork. Always has been helpful and honest to me, the only time he couldnt figure out what was wrong out of the many times ive been he didnt charge me a penny.

This is a hike for you but I promise it's worth it. They've done work for me on two cars and several of my brother's as well. Good people.
