Here’s what some of our Lodi, NJ customers are saying about us:


Just picked up my Audi Quatro from Sal this morning. Four months ago my car wouldn't connect in any gears and I had it towed to the Audi service center and they told me I would need a new transmission at the cost of around $10,000.00. After four months of my car sitting in their lot they still could not come up with a transmission to replace mine. After four months of nothing getting done by Audi service ctr I went to Sal's shop and asked him if he could repair my transmission. He had someone who specializes in Quatro transmissions so he picked my car up from Auidi last week to work on. Sal called me this morning, my car was repaired and it turns out my transmission was never broken, there were some broken parts connected to the trans that needed to be replaced at the cost of only $1600.00. Thanks to Sal, I saved over $8,000.00 because it looks like the Audi service ctr never even checked what was wrong with my car and would have just put a new transmi ssion in my car and since they could not get a new transmission from europe kept my car in their yard for more then four months. Thanks to Sal I got my car back in one week and it was repaired for the problem that it had all along. I recommend Sal to anyone with a transmission problem, he's the best.

Sam knows his stuff, took my car to be repaired there. He gave me a few options and a recommendation. I went with his advice. Happy with the service received, and pricing was reasonable.

Google Review


Sam is a really nice guy that is awesome to deal with. He's obviously been doing transmission work a long time and knows his stuff inside and out and is a fantastic tech. I without hesitation would recommended anybody with any kind of transmission issue to go to Sam to get it fixed!

Google Review


Greatest technician I've ever dealt with. Quick, and extremely knowledgeable. I refer him to anyone i know that needs trans service or repair. he replaced a transmission in my Honda pilot, he dealt with my warranty company and had me back on the road in no time.
thanks Sam

A place to go for fast, accurate, and friendly service.

I called Sam and told him I had a transmission problem. I brought my car in for him to look at it. Before he even walked up to the car he knew the problem and he even knew the error codes.

I dropped the car off in the morning and got it back later that day. I was extremely happy with his knowledge and service.

Strongly recommend based on the above and his honesty.

My transmission was not as bad as I thought, thanks to honest service! So glad that the mechanic could see my car right away; Sal made time for me even though he was very busy. My regular mechanic would’ve made me wait days. Outstanding service!

Google Review


Sam was knowledgeable, patient and kind. He diagnosed my problem by actually driving my SUV and even provided an inexpensive, temporary fix so that I could have some time to think about what I wanted to do about the problem. Sam did not come across as a mechanic looking to make a quick buck, and he was very transparent about what the repair would entail. The one thing that encouraged me to drive 30 miles past an Aamco that was only a mile from my house, is that he told me he was busy, but that he could set aside 15 minutes in the afternoon to take a ride with me; AND, he actually listened to the female driver who knows ZERO about cars and their inner workings. Whenever I do decide to get this repair done, I'll definitely be going back to him. Thank you so much Sam.

Sam is the best! We took our 1996 Buick Roadmaster wagon thinking the worst about our rear differential. He test drove it, opened it up when no one else would touch it. Turns out we just needed a good fluid change. So he did that and the transmission fluid too.
He knows his cars and even explained everything to me as he was doing it. Sam is officially my go to transmission guy from now on. So glad we found him.

Sam is an incredibly honest person. I called ready to spend big money on a new clutch because I thought it was slipping. I brought the car in, and Sam took it for a test drive and pointed out that the clutch was fine, and sent me on my way. It is not often you find a mechanic who will tell you not to do work when they can make a sale, and he has won my future business.

Sam is a great mechanic l. Very knowledgeable. If you have a problem with your Transmission take it to Sam.

Google Review


This should be the only place to bring your car in for transmission work. Totally honest work and advice for what your car needs to get back on the road. Sam doesnt try to get any more out of you. He even shows you on the computer the prices of parts and where it comes from. I could have spent 1k anywhere else but he did what i needed for around 300. Honest and personable guy who enjoys what he does and is good at it.

Highly recommend this place! They are very kind, helpful, and answer all questions. This is not one of those places that try to scam you.

Sam is an amazing person and runs a top notch business. As a business owner myself, I know how important it is to delivery personalized one on one service to customers. I have a 2001 Silverado that had a very specific transmission issue that was stopping me from getting my truck inspected due to a check engine light. No other transmission repair shops wanted to waste their time fixing it correctly. They all wanted to charge me over $2,500 for a transmission rebuild without even taking a look at my truck. I called Sam and from the very beginning he was extremely receptive of my needs and guided me through the process he felt would work best for me. He had the repair done in 1 day the correct way and for a very reasonable price. I passed inspection 2 days later after the code cleared. I called Sam today for a separate issue on my truck and he told me to bring my truck down and he would immediately look at it. Superior Rebuilding & Repair is now my go to place for all my automotive needs.

Sam is the best! We have a 1996 Buick Roadmaster wagon. We thought we were in for a major repair on the rear diff but Sam took it for a test drive, opened it up when no one else would touch it. He really knows his stuff. Honest, friendly and just all around a good guy. So glad we found him.

Superior Rebuilding & Repair Customer Review


My car has been making a rumbling noise for over a year. I took it to many mechanics who could not properly diagnose, fixed minor things but the problem still existed. Last week we took it to a "chain" transmission place in Hackensack. $80.00 for them to diagnosis the problem as needing a new transmission, parts and labor up to $4800. When my husband told the technician that we would most likely NOT fix and get a new car, he wanted to buy it! I started researching and came across Superior Rebuilding and Repair in Lodi. Read every review I could and decided to take it to them. My husband brought it in Monday morning and met Sam, explained what was happening. About an hour later my husband called me and said first, "this guy Sam is a tremendous guy, he stopped what he was doing to take the car for a ride, told me he knew exactly what it was and to drop it off tomorrow and he will fix it". Dropped it off yesterday, it was fixed and picked up - for a small fraction of what the transmission replacement would have cost! I can't thank him enough for being so professional and honest, my car is FINALLY running great again. Sam will be our new go to guy for our car issues and we will tell everyone we know about him! So thankful to have found him!!! Do not hesitate to trust him!!!

Like how they fixs my cars when I have trouble with it & they Be honest with you

Google Review


They are amazing! As a woman going to a mechanic shop alone is always a nerve wrecking experience. I brought my car to Sam Molinaro after taking it to another mechanic shop because my check engine light had come on. The previous repair shop performed a diagnostic and told me that I needed a $300 repair, which I agreed to. After the repair I drove off and the check engine light came back on and my car was suddenly jerking. Took it back to that shop and was told I now have a transmission problem. I was devastated. They recommended I take the car to Sam at his shop and as soon as I arrived at Superior Rebuilding & Repair, Sam was warm and friendly and put my mind at ease. He checked my engine and smiled and said “don’t worry, I’ll have this fixed in a minute.” Turns out the previous mechanics had accidentally knocked some wire unloose (connected to the transmission) while doing the earlier repair. Sam plugged it back in... took it for a test drive to show me All was well and sent me on my way. He’s honest, professional and knows what he’s doing. I’d give him 5 more stars if I could!

Google Review


Excellent customer service. Sam gave me some expert, honest advice on how to address my transmission shifting issues. He recommended that we start with a fluid change using the proper oil and didn't pressure me into jumping into a rebuild right away, unlike some other shops I have gone to in the past. He answered all my questions about a future transmission rebuild and offered some friendly advice about rebuilding vs remanufactured replacements. He was upfront with the associated costs and benefits of each, which I appreciate. I definitely will be back when my clutch needs to be replaced.

Google Review


The service is unbeatable! I called to ask about my engine light that came on and the flashing "D" sign (transmission problem). Within an hour I was able to take my car in and Sam explained what was going on. He gave a very fair price and my car is back to normal functioning in just a few hours. Will I go back in the future? Yes. Do I recommend this place? Absolutely!

Google Review


Had a great experience here doing a transmission fluid change with filter. Sam let me watch everything and he knew right off the bat that my car could be serviced unlike some other places that told me they had to see it first to make sure it wasn't sealed. He also gave me great tips about window repair and paint work. Thanks again!

Had an transmission issue with my car, had to get it towed here and they told me what was wrong what options I had and what can be done very friendly and straight forward would definitely recommend

This man (Sammy) knows his transmissions! He services my high mileage delivery vehicles and works his magic and the vehicles have a new life. When two other shops told me my Sprinter needed a new transmission, I brought it to Sam and two years later, the van is still going strong. So when my Astro/Safari van needed some work, I went straight to Superior and my vehicle is back on the road. God Bless this man & his crew!

Called up for some advise no what to do to on a friends vehicle which had a cvt transmission, they pointed me to the right direction and they were very informative, thanks guys.

Had a great experience at Superior Rebuilding & Repair. Had trouble with my trans. Gave them a call and explained what was going on with my Blazer. Sal (the owner) spent some time on the phone explaining to me what might be the cause and the fix. Most likely a rebuild, but he would have to check it out first to be sure. I also explained my auto situation and he got me in right away. He called me the next day with very good news. Did not have to rebuild, just needed to fix/replace a few parts. The Blazer is running like a champ now. By the way, Sal is a great guy. He really cares for his customers and loves what he does. He also has over 40 years of experience so transmissions is what he knows best. You cannot go wrong going to Superior Rebuilding & Repair. I would recommend Superior Rebuilding & Repair to anyone that has Transmission troubles. Make them your first and only call. They will get the job done.

Sam knows his stuff. Went to him with a problem in my Jeep. I originally brought it to one place and they told me I needed to rebuild my rear differential. I wanted a second opinion because I didn't think that was the case. Brought it to Superior and after Sam test drove it he diagnosed the problem. He not only fixed the problem I was having but also took care of a few other minor things while he was at it. Would definitely recommend.

Superior Rebuilding & Repair Customer Review


My wife's jeep would not shift out of park. I had it towed to another transmission shop who had it for 9 days and did not even look at it. In frustration iI contacted Superior and spoke with Sam. He said to have AAA tow the jeep to Superior and he would look at it within the next few days, which seemed reasonable to me. When the tow truck arrived at Superior, Sam had it brought right in to the shop to look at it. Imagine my surprise when Sam called me that same day to tell me the jeep was repaired and ready to be picked up. The cost for repair was very reasonable. Sam is very knowledgeable and fully explained what had happened and how to avoid the same problem in the future. i would highly recommend Superior for the quality of the work and ethical business practices. Superior is indeed superior and Sam is a man with integrity.

I had a problem with my tires making a loud noise. The place where I purchased the tires told me it was a different problem and wanted to charge a substantial amount of money for a issue I didn't have. Sal found out I had a bad wheel bearing he fixed it and saved me a lot of $$$$.quality work! I would recommend!

Great, honest mechanic who squeezed me in last minute! Highly recommended.

they were very helpful he told me what was wrong when he test drove it and gave me my options it was clear they cared more about my best option than my money

Some very strange symptoms with my car led me to bring it to Superior to have it checked out. After 70,000 miles, it was due. Sam is the very best, extremely knowledgeable and the most honest repair guy I have ever dealt with. Asked him to service the transmission, even though he did not think that was where the trouble was being initiated. He was right and even suggested from where the trouble was coming. He was right again, a short in the alternator. Transmission has never been better and I think I'm getting better gas mileage on my seven year old vehicle. Thanks Sam, you are the best.

The wrench indicator light was on in my wife's Ford Escape. Before Superior I contacted three other trans shops for estimates. One tested the vehicle and told me the tranny would need to be rebuilt. Another one told me the same thing over the phone. The third one told me the same thing, but then when I told him I was going to think about it, he told me that it could be repaired instead, which would cost far less. Before committing to that I called one more place - Superior. I spoke to Sam and told him the issue. Unlike the others he said nothing about a rebuild. He told me right away that it could be repaired, and his price was great. He also took the time to answer couple of questions I had, and didn't seem rushed or bothered at all. And bringing the vehicle in and meeting with him confirmed to me that he was someone who I could count on and trust. And the work he did proved that I was right. And it was done really quickly too. It was a pleasure to bring my business to him, and I'll never bring a transmission problem anywhere else.

Yelp Review


Sam was a referral from my mechanic. The nightmare of all nightmares happened to my 2005 Ford Explorer Sport Trac truck - The transmission went. Finding a good 'regular' mechanic is hard enough, but I really dreaded trying to find someone honest enough to work on this. I Googled local transmission places because I never needed trans work before. The reviews I read for Aamco, and the like were horrible. I trusted my mechanic when he suggested Superior. Sam has 40 years experience and really put me at ease with his demeanor, kindness, honesty, and knowledge. I immediately felt comfortable. I purposely waited a few weeks to write this review after I picked up my truck. Wanted to ride it for awhile to see if any mechanical problems occurred, but nope. Everything is great. Sam noted how my truck had a rebuild transmission before and someone spray painted it silver to hide it. He also reported how I was getting a million wacky diagnostic codes, and determined I needed a new trans. I now have a 3 year Nationwide warranty on this truck with 212,000 miles. I really can't say enough on how great his work and personality are. If you have a trans problem, don't even think about going anywhere else.
