Our Services & Expertise


At Joy Automotive, we understand the terror that comes with the words “transmission repair” and we want you to know that there is hope after all. Whether manual or automatic, heavy duty or low range, the transmission is a vital part at the center of your vehicle’s drivetrain. Your transmission is instrumental in turning the engine’s power into forward movement, so it’s not surprising that problems with this important component can cripple your car. The experts at Joy Automotive have years of experience working on transmissions of all types and sizes. When everything grinds to a halt we have the skills to get you moving forward once more.

Transmission Services

The transmission is responsible for taking power from your engine and turning it into motion that moves you forward or backward. The engine turns a shaft which then turns gears inside the transmission, which turns more gears and eventually moves your wheels.

Transmissions are important because they help cars travel faster and farther than they could on their own power alone. They also make driving easier because they make it possible to change gears without using your feet by using buttons on your steering wheel instead.

However, transmissions can break down over time—especially if they aren’t maintained properly or have been abused in some way (like driving too fast or shifting gears too quickly). When this happens, it can cause problems with starting or stopping suddenly and making weird noises while driving. Get it checked with us to avoid costly repairs and unexpected car breakdowns.

Preventing Transmission Issues With Us Is Your Best Choice For Your Car.

At Joy Automotive, we believe that preventive maintenance is the best way to keep your car on the road and running smoothly.

It’s true that sometimes unexpected transmission repairs can’t be avoided—sometimes you need to have your gearbox replaced after a severe accident, or in rare cases, you may even need a complete transmission overhaul. But most of the time, if you take care of your car and perform regular maintenance checks, you won’t have to worry about any of these issues.

Preventive maintenance can help you avoid major problems like transmission failure by catching minor issues before they become big ones. We’ll walk you through how to do it yourself (and save money), or we’ll perform simple checks on your car during our next service visit so we can spot any potential problems before they become serious issues.

Suppose you’re worried about losing time off work for an unexpected repair or paying extra for an already-expensive repair job. In that case, it’s worth taking care of your car from the start by scheduling regular maintenance checks with us.

We want to ensure you get the best service possible at Joy Automotive.
