*TOP NOTCH** I am new to the Jacksonville area as I just moved here from Atlanta where it is extremely difficult to find a trustworthy mechanic. But Alvie, his wife, and the other mechanic Kevin are GREAT people and very knowledgeable. Although I only came in for a standard "oil change", they made me feel CONFIDENT & COMFORTABLE bringing my vehicle to them for any type of service. I am proud to say that Alvie's Transmission Service is now my "GO TO AUTO-SHOP" ;-) - Leon
Alvie helped us so much last Dec. when our transmission died! He is very knowledgeable & answered all of our questions. His service was quick & made our Van run like new! Great Customer service and follow-up. - Heather
Want to express my sincere thanks to Alvie at Alvie's Transmission Repair in Jacksonville Florida. I took my Dodge truck into him and from the moment I walked into his shop and saw it...I knew I wanted this man working on my vehicle Extremely well organized with every tool, part and piece of equipment immaculate and in it's own place...you could literally eat off his floors...I am not a mechanic by any stretch of the imagination...Alvie told me right off it may be a minor problem and he would check it out...as it turned out it was not...my Transmission was shot (had almost 180,000 miles on it). He then advised me I could go in one of two directions...I could replace it with a used transmission or a new JASPER re-manufactured transmission...he advised me based on his over 30+ years of experience...that if I put a used one in, I might get a good one that would last or I might get one that would go out in a very short time and they are risky (no warranty). He told me if he were I, he would opt for the new JASPER transmission with a three year warranty...I said Alvie, I am going to rely on your judgement and your experience and I'm going to opt for the new JASPER transmission...I know you wouldn't steer me wrong...to which he replied, "No, I would not...not intentionally anyway".
He then installed the new transmission in my truck and I have had it back now for over a month and it is running like new! I highly recommend Alvie and Alvie's Transmission Repair Service, if you want to put your vehicle in the hands of a experienced professional and a good, decent, and honest man, take it to Alvie. Rest assured, it is in good hands.Go by and see his shop and say Hi. Tell him Dino sent you! - Dino Cox, Jacksonville Florida as stated on our Facebook Page!

We were passing through with an RV and the AC went. We found Alvie's, and they fixed us right up, no trouble. The thing that makes me rate them so highly is how refreshingly honest and down to earth Alvie and the mechanic were. They found the issue, we were able to get the part (a valve), and they let us bring the overheated dogs out to the hose for a cool down. Highly recommend, if you want someone you can trust who won't overcharge. Lovely people. - Testimonial by: Sarah W. of Oakville, Canada on Yelp, 05/12/2015
Very impressive and a AAA+++ rating in my book! First thing you notice is how clean Alvie's shop is....you could literally eat off of the floor! And if a man pays that much attention to the details of his shop....well that was selling point number one for me. Number 2, Alvie was very honest and upfront with me. He could have sold me on the idea that I came to him with and made a ton of money, but it wouldn't have been the best way to go in the long run. Because of his suggestions and forethinking, I now have my transmission back! He is fast, he is detailed, he has many years of professional knowledge and I will... hands down... go back to him with any vehicle I have that requires transmission work. Hats off to you Alvie!
