    John did a great job diagnosing my problem (not the transmission, as it turned out). Couldn't ask for a better or more trustworthy mechanic. If I ever do need transmission work, I'll definitely go to New River.

    Excellent!!!!! I replaced my transmission in CT for 2300.00 and it failed after one year. New River helped me recover some of my losses and replaced the transmission for almost half of the price. I have since replaced the engine and the transmission began shifting hard from 3rd to 2nd... I was told by another shop to replace the transmission... I called New River to check on the warranty; they had my record from 3 years ago! The owner (who I have been able to speak with EVERY TIME said "run away from someone trying to sell you a transmission; shifting down hard is one problem corrected by resetting the computer vs shifting poorly up is a transmission replacement issue". Over the phone I got advice! I can not say enough great things about this shop. Superior work, excellent customer service!
