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."
I would highly recommend Cherry City Transmission to anyone - simply the best in Salem!
Bette Martin of Monmouth Oregon
"After the transmission in my Dodge 2500 started going out, I visited several shops for a rebuild quote. Cherry City was the best price, and the only shop that offered a warranty. The work on my truck only took 4 days. Cherry City wanted to make sure I was satisfied, and that the truck was right, so they asked me to drive it for 2 weeks to make sure, then bring it back so they could check it out. Only a minor adjustment needed to be made, and I have had no problems since. Not only did they do a great job, with very competitive prices, and a warranty to boot, they have great customer service! I would highly recommend Cherry City Transmission to anyone - simply the best in Salem!"
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."
Let's face it, a woman's lack of knowledge in the automotive area is often exploited. I've seen it. Got transmission problems... go with Cherry City Transmission, you will not regret it.
Scott Johnson of Salem Oregon
"When I needed transmission work prior to coming to Cherry City Transmissions, it had never been a pleasant experience. I chose Cherry City this time for my wife's van transmission problems because of, well, a coupon offer. After talking initially to Jerry I felt that maybe this experience would be different, and it was. Work was completed prior to when it was promised. The cost was what, Jerry said it would be... and it was fixed right the first time. Since that event, I have had 3 other vehicles' transmissions serviced and again, prompt service with no hidden extra costs. This has been the only automotive experience that I feel that anyone's wife would not be taken advantage of. Let's face it, a woman's lack of knowledge in the automotive area is often exploited. I've seen it. Got transmission problems... go with Cherry City Transmission, you will not regret it. "
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!"
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!"
I would highly recommend them to my friends in this area if ask where to take their vehicle to be repaired. they did a great job!
Kevin Mccracken of Roseburg Oregon
"I was in a real bind. Im in the middle of moving from Portland to southern Oregon. in my travels, i had an auto electric emergency in a city where I did nt know which businesses were reputable. I had my truck towed to cherry city transmission from a web search of auto electric businesses in the area i was in. they were absolutely terrific! they were able to find the problem and fix it in a short time and did not overcharge me. they also worked with me to pay them and get my vehicle left out front because i was unable to get back there until after they closed. I would highly recommend them to my friends in this area if ask where to take their vehicle to be repaired. they did a great job!"
Cherry City Transmissions has EXEMPLARY, PROFESSIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE!
George and Evelyn Montoya
George and Evelyn Montoya of Thornton Colorado
"Cherry City Transmissions has EXEMPLARY, PROFESSIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE! We are from Colorado and vacationing this summer driving through Salem OR on July 4th weekend in 100+ temperatures in our RV pulling a Jeep, when we had transmission failure on the Jeep. We were directed by other shops through AAA who were totally useless to us. The shop who towed our Jeep said it would be 8 days before they got parts to fix it and another week to get it done and the repair estimate would have caused anyone heart failure!! We were desperate as we couldn't stay in Salem OR for 2 weeks! By the grace of God, we found Sophar and his staff at Cherry City Transmissions!! We had our Jeep towed in on Saturday of the big weekend, when this shop is usually closed, and Sophar worked on our vehicle ALL holiday weekend and got our Jeep back to us on MONDAY and safely on the road to our destination! His fee was far less than what we had been quoted from the other shops and his professionalism and warranty of his work spoke volumes to us!! And his communication with us throughout was beyond our expectations. We are eternally grateful to Sophar at Cherry City Transmissions! "
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."
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.
