Products & Services


We repair transmissions… almost any transmission. Standard or automatic. High performance or conventional. Full-size, mid-size or compact. Cars, trucks, SUVs, hybrids, crossovers and more. If it has a powertrain, we can service it.

We rebuild transmissions… at our state-of-the-art remanufacturing transmission center, we can remove your current transmission, diagnosis the problem, rebuild it and reinstall it quickly to keep you running.

We install remanufactured transmissions… featuring Certified Transmission remanufactured transmissions. Remanufactured means that an experienced technician has first disassembled the transmission by hand, and then thoroughly inspected and checked each piece. If any component isn't up to factory-new specifications or standards, it is re-machined or replaced with a new part.

We install new transmissions… Need a new transmission or want to upgrade your current transmission for higher performance? We have the right people with the right knowledge to help you make the right choice for the transmission that will fit your needs.

And our installations meet or exceed the manufacturer’s qualifications — our way to earn your trust, give you the peace of mind and reassure you that you made the right choice for your transmission service.

Customer Testimonials

Helpful, generous staff are at the Canton Waterloo Transmissions. They did a good job of explaining what was wrong, and worked through any issues I had.

I recently had an issue with a transmission that was covered under an after market warranty. The warranty company made it as hard as possible to meet the criteria to use the policy. Andy and Tom really advocated me and did everything in there ability to get the company to work with me. After a long struggle t

This place is the only place to go for transmission issues. Andy is the manager and he really knows what he is doing and how to explain things. I recently had our 2010 Kia Sedona van at Waikem Kia for almost 5 weeks while they replaced the transmission for odd shifting. After the replacement, it was still shifting funny and I decided to get a second opinion.

After riding in the van for 10 minutes, Andy explained that what it was doing was a fuel economy thing related to the torque converter engaging and disengaging. Apparently many newer vehicles do this and it can feel like multiple shifts. So in 10 minutes, he diagnosed and explained what a whole factory trained service department could not do in 5 weeks. We need more people like him who actually understand these complex vehicle systems!

Had an issue with my transmission and they were able to help figure out what the problem was. Jim is very knowledgeable, helpful and down-to-earth realistic. Karen was also great with communication and helpful. They worked hard to find the most cost-effective and cost-friendly solution to my problem, and recommended only what needed done to fix the problem completely and get me back on the road. Highly recommend this shop.

Waterloo Transmission replaced my transmission in my 2007 GMC Envoy. Jim was great to work with. He sat down with my husband and gave him his time and figured out what needed to be done to my vehicle. I'm so happy with the results and I hope I get a few more years out of my vehicle.

I use my truck for business every day. My Allison Automatic Transmission started having issues. Jim got my truck in the same day and started on it. They had it back to me in one week. It has been working great ever since. Friendly service at a fair price. Thank You Waterloo Transmission for getting me back on the road.

Really a great group of people who are very knowledgeable. They converted my 66 mustang from an automatic to a manual transmission and they worked their butts off to make sure that when I recieved the car back that it was perfect can say enough about them.

Had a great experience with the service provided by Waterloo Transmissions. Expressing concern of car's performance, they evaluated and found nothing wrong. Being that my car has 161 k miles, I chose to have the transmission serviced. Again, during the service work, no issues were discovered. They are Factual , with NO HARD SELLING. i WILL GO BACK WHEN NEED Arises.

Jim at Waterloo Transmissions personally contacted me in regards to a shifting problem with my 1988 F150 truck. He told me what to check before I brought it in. I did what he suggested and

After having a negative experience at another transmission specialist, I came here upon the recommendation of a friend. My problem was solved in a day and my car is shifting flawlessly. The owner and office staff have winning personalities and seem to genuinely enjoy what they do.

Couldn't have asked for better service. Honest, fast and sincere! Will come back for sure in the future.
