I was advised to take it to AZ Transmissions. I explained the problem and the guy said ‘let’s take it for a spin, hop in the passenger seat’. He drove it and it was fine! He showed me how I had been driving it using a ‘Trip’ button which basically turns it into a manual clutch, instead of regular drive (yes, I felt like an idiot, but a happy one!). He was extremely nice, didn’t charge me a cent and sent me off. I didn’t spend 15 minutes there. Very honest and very good experience. I would recommend in a heartbeat. And my mom’s mechanic said they do excellent work when there actually IS a problem!!!

It turned out that, over the course of a New England winter, my car had accumulated a couple of extra problems since work was last done, including a rusty oil pan and damaged rear wheel hubs. I want to note that Baum Blvd Automotive went out of their way to earn my trust on somewhat pricy repairs, offering to call my regular mechanic and seeking out ways to offer me discounts. When I got home and had a regularly scheduled tire swap, my mechanic noted that Baum Blvd Automotive had definitely identified problems I would not want to drive home on and they would have given me similar advice. My only note is that it took rather a long time for the parts to arrive. I was not in a hurry, however, and I did leave Pittsburgh on schedule and safely, thanks to Baum Blvd Automotive.
Bob and his team are great.....
