About Cottman

The Company

The first Cottman Transmission Center was established in 1962. With many locations across the US, Cottman Transmission and Total Auto Care is your local Transmission Specialist.

All Cottman Transmission and Total Auto Care centers adhere to a strict code of ethics, ensuring that our customer's vehicles are repaired quickly, economically and efficiently.

Cottman's Service Philosophy is the reason why millions of customers have trusted us to repair their vehicle's transmissions over the past five plus decades. You see, at Cottman, we know YOU have more important things to worry about than your transmission.

Service Philosophy

All Cottman Transmission and Total Auto Care centers abide by Cottman's complete service philosophy, which calls for your vehicle's transmission to be repaired properly the first time, so that you don't have to lose either time or money.

We will road test your car, perform our FREE and exclusive TransCheck 21 PLUS Service® and examine the transmission pan to determine if your transmission problem can be repaired without the transmission being removed from the vehicle. If it is necessary for your transmission to be "rebuilt", "overhauled", "remanufactured", or "reconditioned", (these are interchangeable terms), a rebuilding procedure will be performed according to our rigid technical standards and backed by our nationwide warranty.

Cottman will never compromise its standards just to make a vehicle "superficially driveable." We will never perform a low quality service that would result in increased costs, inconvenience, and possible hazardous driving conditions for our customers.

Cottman's status, reputation, and growth are a direct result of our commitment to quality standards, parts, and warranties, as well as our commitment to our customers.
