About Trans Pros

Trans Pros is an eco-friendly, community-oriented family owned and operated business. Since we started in 2000, we specialized in automatic transmissions, manual transmissions, differentials, engine rebuilds & engine diagnostics, tune-ups, brakes, and electrical diagnostics.

Jose Firman learned to repair transmissions when he was 15 years old and started his own company at 29. Now, he’s teaching his son all about the family business.

What we do best

We especially love working on BMW, Mercedes, Audi, and other European models.  Our master-transmissions-rebuilder has over 30 years of experience of doing just that.

We also take pride in our custom work, providing fabrication and welding solutions for off-road vehicles, 4×4 Jeeps, Humvees, motorhomes, hot rods, and low-riders.

Environmentally Conscious

We are dedicated to running an eco-friendly auto shop – as members of the Environmental Health Coalition, we recycle water, oil, and aluminum parts.

Community Oriented

What better way to show off our work than at the Cinco de Mayo con Orgullo Festival and Car Show? For years in a row, we’ve been religiously attending San Diego’s classic car show, where 10.000 people celebrate Mexican heritage and culture. We are proud to have sponsored the Apollo Lowrider Car Club …..

Beyond automobiles, we love sports and the impact they have on our youth’s development. We’re Chargers fans ourselves, but we’ve humbly sponsored many local junior sports teams along the years:

  • local little league football
  • The Rebels Soccer Team
  • The Renegades 14 and under
  • The Bonita Buccaneers

The quality of our work

We offer a 12-month, 12,000-mile warranty on our services because, with over 30 years of combined experience, the quality of our work is 100% guaranteed!

Our shop is equipped with the latest diagnostic tools and is large enough to accommodate motorhomes and large trucks.

Tough job? We love a challenge! Actually, we are one of the very few shops that provide transmission services for Nissans, particularly the late model CVTs (continuously variable transmission) that most shops steer clear from.

Government trusted service provider

Trans Pros is trusted as an official auto service provider to governmental organizations, such as:

  • Navy Base
  • National City School District
  • Chula Vista Transit Bus System (MTS)

Please feel free to reach out to us if you’d like to discuss a sponsorship opportunity.
