I had my car services at your Mooresville location and the service was outstanding! I was very satisfied. Steve was very friendly and helpful I will tell my friends about your work the shop is clean all the employees are friendly that kind of service is hard to find keep up the good work
-Linda

I love that Cottman has free towing! It came in handy when my transmission suddenly died on me. The tow truck picked up my car from my house and Cottman called me when they got it. I loved that I didn't have to worry about! I got my car back in three days and it was all fixed! I would definitely recommend Cottman to my friends!!
-Nathan Mulholland

Wonderful service. Staff is very friendly and competent. They can fix anything. My new favorite car shop!
-Adam

I recently had my 2001 Lincoln Towncar in their shop. Tony told me what the problems were, what he suggested, what it would cost and when it could be repaired. Everything that Tony told me to expect is what happened. My car runs good and I would recommend Tony and Liz to anyone looking for a reputable auto mechanic in the Columbia/Irma/Lexington area.
-Don

Tony and Liz did a very fine job on my 1995 Bronco. The work was done very professionally. I had work done at another transmission shop last year and had multiple problem and poor workmanship. Tony fixed all that and with a better warranty. Cottman is the only transmission service shop I will ever use for any of my vehicles. He is the best in Columbia. Thanks for the great job. My Bronco thanks you too.
-George W. Rudge

I moved to Columbia in 2007 and wish I discovered Tony and Liz then! The diagnosis for my car was spot on and not what 3 other mechanics gave to me. Tony took the time to fix the problem, rather than alleviating the simptoms. In addition, he recommended other needed services and did his best to help me out with the finances. It hard to find a mechanic that not only cars about your car as much as you do, but also the customer. Thanks again Tony and Liz, see you for my next check up!
-Stephanie C. Kurzeja


I was extremely satisfied with the service I received at Cottman Transmission and Total Auto Care on December 2, 2013. The owner and staff were very professional and courteous. I will definitely return to get my car serviced there in the future.
-Rodney Baker


Excellent service. Went beyond to see that everything was to my satisfaction. Would recommend them to everyone.

- John


I took my car in because I thought I needed new brakes. After checking it out, free of charge, they told me I can wait a few months before replacing them. They also checked out my daughter's car. I had received a quote from another shop and Tony was able to offer another option to repair it that was half the price. They truly have the customer's best interest in mind. Their customer service is top notch - they greeted me by name and even sent me a hand written thank you note a few days after repairing the car. Cottman's is the only place I'll take our cars from now on.

- Tracy


My sister and brother in-law referred me to Cottman Transmission at first I was skeptical because the price they quote me after looking at my vehicle was wayyyy out of my price range, and I was not going to go through with the repairs, but after I spoke with Tina she was able to give a price I was able to afford and payment option that suited my needs. So I was very please with the level of customer service and the over all experience.

- Annette


Went for a diagnosis because my transmission was having problems. Decided to have my transmission rebuilt and got a tune up as well. 2 year warranty. Torque converter had a problem shortly after it left the shop. Brought it back and it was replaced under warranty no questions asked. Tony threw in free ball joints. My check engine light came back on when I left the second time. Took it back. Replaced CO2 sensor free of charge. When I was getting ready to leave, I found out that I had a bad brake line. They replaced it free of charge as well. Tony and Liz have been nothing but fantastic. Will be returning for future repairs!!! Highly Recommended!

- Royce


In a word: TREMENDOUS! Tony and his team are absolutely top notch.

Expert and thorough evaluation of needed service, conscientious and timely repairs, thoughtful explanations of service required and cost estimate, and very helpful, people-friendly manners. Handy location too!


And, if time is spent by a customer on site, the clean and tidy waiting room has free wifi, cold water, nice restrooms, and smoke-free environment.


Cottman of Columbia does a FANTASTIC JOB; now our first stop for any automotive needs.

- Doug


Tony and Liz are the best people I'v dealt with for car repairs. The repairs they did on my truck were done expertly and for a price that was definitly very fair. I will use their shop for future repairs and recommend them to anyone I know in need of auto service. I hope they keep this shop and stay here for a long time. Thank you from a very satisfied customer.

- Stan


Very satisfied with the services ever since Tony and Liz took over Cottman. Love the honesty and the way treated by them - received from them thank you notes every time I received a service from them. I give them 10 plus. Thank You Tony and Liz for coming to Columbia.

-T Varela

I was almost ready to donate by 1997 E-420 Mercedes after being told that it needed a transmission. I am so glad, that as a last resort, I had it towed to Cottman Transmission and Total Auto Care. It was not the transmission and my car now drives like a dream. Even though the shop is quiet a distance from my home in NE Columbia, it is well worth the trip for great service.
- Lucille Mitchell

Tony & Liz were very professional & very friendly. I had many items to fix on my old truck. Tony did a great job checking it out & letting me see what the items that needed repair were. Any repairs I need in the future, I will be heading to them! I recommend them to everyone!
-Tony H

After 15 years, my and I switched to Tony Foy, the owner, for all of our automotive needs. His performance and customer service are exceptional. We have never been happier with automotive repair work. I pray my daughters never have car trouble but if they do, they will go to Tony. I trust him.
-Bill

Recommendations confirmed what had been predicted by Firestone. Provided transportation assistance home, which was helpful. Seemed trustworthy and honest all the way around!
-Jeff Peeler

I want to thank Tony and Liz, of Cottman Transmission on Bush River Rd., for their expertise in customer service, quality workmanship, and fair competitive pricing. The transmission started to slip on my 2002 F250 diesel between 2nd/3rd gear and I lost reverse, and at all times, Monday December 23, 2013. With the kids out of school for Christmas break, it was going to be along week at the house. Liz and Tony explained to me the problem with the transmission, and their work schedule for the Christmas Holiday, and mentioned it would probably be ready Monday after Christmas. You cannot imagine how surprised I was, when I received a phone call on Friday evening December 27th, saying it was ready to pick up. Are you kidding me??
I am from the old school where a hand shake and a person's word speaks volumes. Both Liz and Tony care about their customers, they do what they say they are going to do, and top it off with a little extra...meaning, I was surprised to see they cleaned my truck also... Really, who does that?
Cottman on Bush River Rd. has my business.
-David Ross Sr.

Was very pleased with the service I received and would definitely use them again when my car needs repairs or maintenance. I am a satisfied customer and would recommend them to anyone looking for a good repair shop.
