Transmission Repair

Santa Cruz’s European Auto
Transmission Experts

Your vehicle’s transmission experiences a great deal of wear and tear due to the amount of heat and friction generated during its operation and as the miles add up. If you suspect any sort of issue with your transmission, it’s best to deal with it quickly. What may appear to be a minor repair now may evolve into a pricey replacement in the future.

The transmission is crucial to getting the smooth and pleasant ride you desire from your European brand car. Transmission difficulties are not only one of the most common, but also one of the most serious. Failure to correct a transmission problem can quickly result in your car being completely inoperable.

At Hayes European, we conduct complete transmission repairs and maintenance for well-known European brands. We’ve been the go-to shop for drivers in and around Santa Cruz, California, since 2004.

We will go the extra mile to ensure your satisfaction.
