Transmission Doctor & Auto Care has an impressive 27+ year history in the Gainesville, Florida area. The business was started by Rick Cahill in 1993 servicing 1-2 cars per week. In 1996 Jim Markle joined Rick as a transmission rebuilder. Jim soon realized he had a passion to simply “help people fix their cars” and in 1999 he decided to purchase Transmission Doctor from Rick.
Our growing team of highly trained and qualified technicians includes Jim (ASE Master Certified), Devin, Wes, and Marty. Combined, they bring over 73 years of experience to our loyal customer base. When you call or stop by our brand new state of the art facility we opened last year you’ll be greeted by Jen, our Shop Manager/Service Writer who will see to it that you’re treated like a long-time friend.
Our specialty has always been and continues to be transmission repair. However in 2008, due to increasing demand from our customers, we added “& Auto Care” to our name and expanded our service offerings to include complete auto servicing. We service all makes and models of vehicles, including motorhomes. Our services include but are not limited to:
- Automatic & Standard Transmission Rebuild Specialists
- Manufacture’s Scheduled Maintenance
- Major Engine Repair
- Clutch Repair
- Steering & Suspension
- Timing Belts
- Tune Ups
- Air Conditioning Service & Repair
Every customer receives a free 24 point external and electronic diagnostic check. That is followed up with an honest diagnosis and a fair price. We tell you what needs attention first and what can wait until a later date. Our entire team takes pride in being a repair shop that you can trust. In addition, if you’re interested, we’ll take the time to educate you on the details of each and every repair.
Over the years word of mouth and personal referrals have been our best advertising. Family and community involvement is very important, and we support local businesses and our schools with sponsorships and attending events on a regular basis. Jim can also be heard on 97.3 “The Sky” radio where he does a brief commercial about our services. Videos, tips (Dr.’s Orders) and photos can be found on our website and Facebook page facebook.com/Transmission-Doctor-and-Auto-Care
Our longevity and reputation in the Gainesville area speaks volumes….the Transmission Doctor is here to help people. We look forward to seeing you soon!
