For more than 30 years, Uptown Auto Specialist has provided New Orleans and Jefferson Parish motorists with a full range of maintenance services and auto repairs, including transmission service and replacement. Besides specializing in German-made automobiles, our auto mechanics are also equally capable of performing expert transmission service and replacement, in addition to other auto repairs, on Asian brands too. And with employment tenure at Uptown Auto Specialist ranging from 5 to 25 years, we also have proven auto repair experience for the unique NOLA environment.

As the heart of your automobile, your transmission requires periodic maintenance & service — like some other vehicle systems require auto repair over the lifetime of a vehicle. Modern transmissions are incredibly complex — with many variations of 6-, 7-, 8-, 9- and 10-speed gearboxes in the New Orleans,Jefferson Parish and the Greater New Orleans marketplace. That makes a diagnosis, let alone first-rate transmission service and replacement, complicated.

Modern auto repair, which includes transmission service or replacement, requires a constant education to keep up with new technology and ever-evolving associated service procedures, according to Paul Cosma, our owner. That’s why Uptown Auto Specialist invests in annual automaker vehicle systems training, direct-from-the-manufacturer service information and keeping diagnostic skills current. These resources are essential to safe and complete auto repair today, so we partially offset these investments by charging a prorated fee for the vehicles we service each year. It’s how we service and repair your vehicles (including transmission service or replacement) without compromise. Other competitors may choose not to keep their knowledge, skills, information resources, or equipment current so they can charge less, but we won’t shortchange your vehicle’s health, longevity or performance.

Our customers say they appreciate us taking the stress and confusion out of their auto care. Here’s a five-star review shared by a happy customer:

“Great service! Knowledgeable owner/mechanic. Did exactly what he said he would do. Diagnosed the problems and offered a strategy that would avoid unnecessary work and expense. Final costs were less than quoted. Will definitely recommend.” -- David K.
