Can You Tell Me What A Limited Slip Differential Is?
Occasionally one of our customers in the Salem area will ask a technician at Cherry City Transmission what a limited slip differential is. We tell them that when their vehicle is turning around a curve, the outside wheel turns a larger radius than that of the wheel inside. This results in the outside wheel turning faster which is allowed by the differential. In a limited slip differential system, clutches or a locking mechanism is used to facilitate power and drive both wheels. This system was designed to enable both wheels to turn at varying speeds in turns, but have them both pulling when driving straight. The advantage of this is that both wheels are pulling even when one wheel may lose traction.
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. "
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."
Cherry City got me right in when my vehicle was having electrical problems, got the problem fixed for a very reasonable cost, and back to me the same day!

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!"
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 Transmissions has EXEMPLARY, PROFESSIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE!

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! "
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."
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.
