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

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!!!

Angel Guerrero 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!

Sheena Butler 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.

Richard Yoon 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!

Daisy K 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!

Norey Google Review

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!

Lambros Barbagiannis Superior Rebuilding & Repair Customer Review

Mitch Conner Google Review

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.

Salvatore Cennimo Google Review

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.

William Reyes 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.

Joseph LoSardo Google Review

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!

Paul chiagoro Google Review

Nicole Stapleton Google Review

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

Gene Savarese Google Review

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.

August Defalco Google Review

My car was stuck on a road. The engine was working but no power to the wheels so i thought it might be transmission problem. I called Superior rebuilding-repairing service (located right by the Lodi DMV) and he took care of the rest. He found the problem right away, which was a broken axle. He fixed my car before the noon and charged me about half than i expected. Also he is very sincere not only work but also in personality. Really good place women can go and feel comfortable and treated well.
