CUSTOMER CARE AT CHIPPY’S TRANSMISSION SERVICE
Vehicles that drive in stop-and-go conditions and different climates like West Virginia are prone to having much higher wear than transmissions of the same mileage which are used under “normal” highway conditions.
Mileage isn’t the best indicator of potential transmission problems. Rather, it is the number of times the transmission goes through its shift cycles. Beyond these conditions, excessive heat or cold, problems with snow or ice, and driving at steep inclines can all adversely affect your transmissions performance.
Driving in any of the above conditions would most likely mean your car wasn’t driving at “normal” conditions according to your owner’s manual, and would need more frequent maintenance checks.
Transmission trouble doesn’t always mean major repairs. We’ll tell if it’s a minor repair or if something else may be the problem. We can tell you how to take care of your transmission and give you other helpful tips.
Often times routine maintenance can be done the same day.
