"We stand behind our work"
Russ Blair since 1990
My name is Russ Blair and I started working for the Transmission Shop Inc. in 1990. I have been a "car guy" my whole life. I started working on cars since I was 10 years old, helping my Dad do tune-ups on the family car. I have always tried to find ways to help people with their car decisions. I try to take a commonsense approach to things. I believe that if you help people whenever possible, when you need help, someone will be there to help you. I knew shortly after I started working for the Transmission Shop that I had found my home. We believe that our customers come first and it's up to us to do whatever we can to help them. EVERY TIME!
Clayton Carlson since 1999
I've been in the auto repair business since 1974. I really enjoy being outside, test driving cars. I love finding problems other shops haven't been able to diagnose. I do towing, cleaning, answering phones, and whatever needs to be done. I enjoy joking and teasing the people I work with. Life's too short not to laugh as much as possible. I've lived in Minnesota all my life. I've been married 14 years and have a great daughter and two hunting dogs. I enjoy going to the cabin, fishing, hunting, fall time, and eating!

Our Philosophy here at this location is consistent with Transmission Shop Inc.'s mission. That is, fast customer-sensitive service. We work hard to lessen the stress and inconvenience related to auto repair. We will take the time to communicate the hows and whys of your repair or offer options that make sense. Stop by and see the difference in service that you may have had elsewhere.
I've always enjoyed mechanical things - seeing how they work, fixing them, and improving them if I can. I started working on cars in 1982, and I have been at it ever since. I also enjoy hunting, fishing, and being outdoors.
"Dear Roger & Russ,
Thank you for going the extra mile, and also for the fast, friendly PROFESSIONAL SERVICE ! "
"Hi, We normally do not endorse vendors, but this was extra-ordinary service – all we can say is: Wow and honest transmission place!
Our Ford Escape with 65,000 miles was shifting a little rougher between first and second, (you cannot feel it shift between the other gears).
Our regular service guy said to get it checked out - he said to go to TSI - the Transmission Shop Inc.,Hi, in Richfield MN.
TSI did a full diagnostic, changed the fluid and filter and said that there is not a problem.
They said that the Ford 6 speed is very reliable and actually has far fewer problems than the 4 speed.
We liked the $210 rather than $2500 - $3500!"
