Andy K is the "A" in "A&B" and he is a DC success story. Andy is a graduate of Lincoln Technical Institute and began his automotive career while still in school, applying what he learned each week to real jobs, and making money on the side to support his education.
He then spent a year learning the practical, business side of transmissions working at a local shop that only worked on transmissions and maintaining drivetrains. He learned what he needed, and then, as in all success stories, went out on his own with a vision for his own automotive shop.
His vision was to open more than a transmission shop, and to apply his wider knowledge of vehicles to handle the needs of not only individual vehicle owners, but the special maintenance and repair needs of fleet owners as well.
Andy and the crew did great work at a fair price.

I think I found my new repair shop. I received prompt service. Regular updates by phone. Instead of jumping to conclusions they tried everything they could to eliminate unnecessary expenses. The best experience I've had in getting repairs.

I took my Toyota Celica in to A&B Transmissions to fix a grinding noise that i had been hearing when driving down the road. Andy, one of the mechanics who worked there showed me exactly what was wrong with the car and explained in detail to me what he needed to replace on my car. Andy, provided me with a very fair price to fix the issues on my car and once the parts were ordered Andy and his team of mechanics fixed my cars issues in just one day. I have been driving my car now for several weeks and the handling and the driving experience is a night and day difference. I will definitely be coming back to A&B Transmissions if my Toyota needs more work done in the future.

These guys have a reputation of quality workmanship and ethical business dealings. Every taxi driver I know says they will only takes their cars to Mark and Andy! Most honest guys in the business and best repair shop HANDS DOWN in the DMV. You won’t find a better value.

I was recommended by Jose at Lee's Auto (3315 8th St NE) after a diagnostic from them.
The quoted amount was what I paid and the work was done the same day. It turns out my experience was not unique. Andy was my contact and he always answered his phone. Great service.
Tip: This place is near the rear of the driveway. Drive further back to get to the business and enter near the garage.
Fyi: the website on the card does not match this business.

This is the most honest place I've ever been to. I thought I had a transmission problem, but they discovered the sound I was hearing was caused by an improperly installed fuel filter. They did not charge me for the diagnosis, and recommended I go back to my mechanic since the filter was brand new. That's integrity, folks. Great experience!

I've been going to these guys for over 10years . Anywhere they go i go. I drive a hour to get to them. Never looking to make extra money off you. And wont take advantage of you because youre a woman. They explain and show you the problem. If the problem is small they will tell you what to do on your own so you can save money.
