Can Spark Plugs Last 100,000 Miles?
There have been times when the technicians at Cherry City Transmission have found spark plugs seized in the cylinder heads of some of our Salem area customers' vehicles with as little as 60,000 miles on them. The removal of these seized plugs can result in hours of labor by our technicians at Cherry City Transmission. There have been rare occasions when Cherry City Transmission has needed to remove cylinder heads just to get the spark plugs removed. Cherry City Transmission suggests that in order for our customers in the Salem are to maintain peak performance for their vehicles, that their spark plugs should not be run longer than 30,000 miles. Cherry City Transmission suggest that consumers should take those 100,000 mile spark plug marketing claims of manufacturers with a grain of salt.
They did on my car, and fit it in during the busy holiday season, and did it for a fair price. I am a lifetime Cherry City Transmissions customer!
Stewart Brown of Salem Oregon
"When the transmission went out on my car, I did not know where to take it. I was referred to Cherry City Transmissions by our family mechanic. I checked around and found this to be the very best place. My car has a transmission that is tough to rebuild correctly. I belong to several car forums, and hear disastrous stories about transmission rebuild mishaps all the time. I was worried at first. Most guys that own cars like mine, order rebuilt transmissions from two or three rebuilders in the country, who specialize in only these transmissions. However, this is my daily driver, so I could not wait for a trans to be build and shipped across the US. Jerry (the Owner) at Cherry City Transmissions certainly does know the idiosyncrasies of my trans. The rebuild he recommended included some parts designed to correct the weak parts in my trans. It has been over two years now, and I am happy to report that my transmission is still working better than new! I am a car guy. This car has it's own web page. I work on it almost daily, so this car means a lot to me. I can safely recommend Jerry and crew at Cherry City Transmissions. They do an excellent job! They did on my car, and fit it in during the busy holiday season, and did it for a fair price. I am a lifetime Cherry City Transmissions customer!"
The car now runs like it did when I brought it home for the first time. I would not take my car for repairs anywhere else.
Jack Skiles of Salem Oregon
"I highly recommend Cherry City Transmission for all your auto repair needs. I rolled my Jaguar into their garage with 49 codes keeping my engine on. I thought my car was done for good. Luckily Cherry City Transmission was recommended to me. Their excellent technicians through experience and intuition diagnosed and corrected all my car's problems. They are courteous and kept me in the loop about what was happening the entire time while being conscience of my budget. The car now runs like it did when I brought it home for the first time. I would not take my car for repairs anywhere else."
I couldn't be happier with the service I received at Cherry City Transmission.
Peter Tosi of Salem Oregon
"I just want to say that when I needed my transmission rebuilt, Cherry City was there. They performed work on time and exactly to the estimate. Also, the thing that surprised me was the 24 month national warrenty, good in the US and Canada. I couldn't be happier with the service I received at Cherry City Transmission. "
It has been a pleasure having you work on several cars that my family has brought to you knowing of your trust and honesty and the fact that we are supporting a local business.
Bill Williams of Salem Oregon
"I want to let you know that my Mazda Miata continues to run well after the work you did on it for me. It has been a pleasure having you work on several cars that my family has brought to you knowing of your trust and honesty and the fact that we are supporting a local business. Again, thank you for the work that you have done."
Cherry City Transmission repaired my clutch and it has been working perfect for 3 years now!
Lynn Stransky of Portland
"My clutch went out and needed extensive repair. The last 2 times it was worked on the other people botched the job. It was amazing that I was even able to get the truck down there from Portland. Cherry City Transmission repaired my clutch and it has been working perfect for 3 years now! The price was right and workmanship excellent."
Their work comes with a substantial guarantee. Sophar and his staff were quite helpful and courteous as well.
Joe Johnston of Salem Oregon
"Cherry City Transmission did a first rate job of rebuilding our 1994 Volvo transmission. Their work comes with a substantial guarantee. Sophar and his staff were quite helpful and courteous as well."
Very nice people to work with they fixed many things wrong with my RAV 4. I will be going back to them when needed. Thanks guys.

Thanks to Sophar and his awesome crew I now have my baby back and she's running top-notch!
Kate Barnes of Salem Oregon
"I have a collectable car, one that I want to have and drive for the foreseeable future. I had the feeling it was going to cost me thousands of dollars to get it fixed due to this car being a rare version of a really popular style. Jerry was very familiar with the style, this issue mine had and that is was not only repairable, but he said he could do it in just a few. After checking around, I discovered Sophar's Cherry City Transmissions is where most shops in the are send their transmissions to be rebuilt. Hearing this and having the promise of a quick turn-around, I took my car to Sophar. The repairs took longer than expected--the ONLY complaint I have. The work was done right and the car runs better now than it did when I bought it! I never knew it could accelerate like it does now! Thanks to Sophar and his awesome crew I now have my baby back and she's running top-notch! Also, this is the only place in town that for the price gives a warranty for the work they do. Save money and headaches - take her to Sophar!"
By far the best, most honest transmission repair shop in Salem Oregon!
Christine Smith of Salem Oregon
"By far the best, most honest transmission repair shop in Salem Oregon! My husband had his transmission rebuilt by them, this is his show car, not his daily driver. It was beyond the warranty, when his car started having problems, he took it back to them, and Jerry Wood, the owner, once he looked into it, stated that he would fix it for FREE! At the time, he had an employee that wasn't top notch and did some poor repairs, and this gentleman worked on our car (has since been fired) Jerry didn't have to tell us this, he didn't have to fix it for free, we would have been none the wiser. He is an amazing mechanic, we have sent multiple people to him, with all of them being very pleased."
