Took my truck in a couple weeks ago. It was having shifting issues. Very kind and professional. They found the issue and had it fixed same day. Alex kept me in the loop the whole time. I was honestly prepared for it to be something worse that what it turned out to be. Fix was very simple. Now my truck shifts beautifully. Will definitely see more business from me in the future. Thanks guys!

Several mechanics had told me that to replace the gas tank in my 71 VW Bug was difficult - therefore expensive.  Not Darwin!!! Thank you Darwin and his entire crew.  Rosie Bug roams the streets of Bend and Redmond all the time! Runs better than my other ride. 2

Darwin and his team are great people.  They worked on my 2007 Chevy Duramax Classic and did an outstanding job.  Very fast, professional and fair priced.  I would recommend them to anyone looking for an honest experienced mechanic.

Transfix Auto was Great.  I had a whistling noise coming from my engine while driving through bend and stopped to make sure if it was something I needed to get fixed before the long drive home, they fit me in quickly and checked it out.  Darwin was honest, helpful and entertaining.  When he looked at my car to find the problem, he figured it out quickly. It was something my home dealership mechanic had said I would need to get fixed a while ago, so I knew he was right on the diagnoses.  What I didn't expect was the advice that it I could wait on it and that it was more of an annoyance than a "needs to be fixed soon" like my mechanic said.  He also told me that they were trying to sell me on a bigger expensive fix than was needed, and then told me what really needed to be done.  Darwin, The owner spent 30 minutes looking at my car and talking to me, even though the shop was slammed, and didn't charge me! I got home and changed mechanics, got the way cheaper fix and everything is perfect! Wished I lived in Bend just to have such an honest mechanic.

I love this place!  Theses guys have overhauled my transmission and do all of my general automotive work.  The work is always spot on and the experience, from start to finish, is always excellent.  I would definitely recommend this shop to anyone looking for a group of honest and trustworthy people to take care of their vehicles.  Thanks Transfix Automotive for keeping me on the road!

The Mechanics you want working in your vehicle, hands down loyalty and Attention to detail.

It all started with my 2006 Saturn stalling and idling incorrectly while I was in town. I called around to find someone who works on Saturns since my previous mechanic experiences in Bend were not positive. Transfix told me to bring it in and they fixed the problem promptly. They noticed I had an exhaust leak (which I suspected) and said they could fix that as well. The exhaust manifold had a crack. They replaced the exhaust manifold and gasket. The car runs great again. I went back to them again to have the transmission fluid changed since other Bend shops told me it couldn't be done. Bam! The fluid is now changed and I feel safe to travel on a trip again. I would highly recommend Transfix. They were reasonable and very professional.

I love this shop. They know their stuff.  They keep my car running great and the customer service is always excellent.

I was told by the "oil change guys" that my car was due for transmission service. A friend recommended Trans-Fix. I called an made an appointment. It's in an odd location, near the BendBroadband office off Empire Ave. But the guy on the phone gave me good directions and I found the shop easily.  While they worked on my car I returned to work, and they called to let me know when it was ready. Everything went smoothly! The owner of Trans-Fix is a hoot. He has a really great sense of humor and is fun to talk to.

We had the great pleasure of having TransFix work on my wife's Volvo XC90. Darwin and the crew went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure we were satisfied. When was the last time a mechanic brought out all the used parts they replaced? that practice doesn't happen at the dealership.... Darwin runs a nice business!

— Yelp User Review

Absolutely fantastic shop! I take my 2004.5 Volvo S40 here all the time and Darwin is the Volvo MASTER! I have had nothing but amazing experiences every time I have had my car in the shop. Prices are dirt cheap compared to other shops, work is completed quickly and thoroughly, and their customer service is ace. I'm always called before the work is started with an estimate, I'm always called if anything else pops up during the service, and I'm always called when the work is completed. 5/5 every time for this shop, I wouldn't take my S40 anywhere else if my life depended on it.

I would bring my vehicle back and recommend these guys to anyone looking for an honest shop. I did not have transmission work done but they worked on my AC system which which was done quickly and affordably.

Darwin at Transfix is the only person in Bend that I would trust for any repair with my Volvo. He and his team have now fixed several things that were wrong with my car, including a new motor mount, and a new alternator. All for a very fair and affordable price, completed in a very timely manner, exceptional customer service and communication... and my car is running better now that it EVER has. Very grateful. Thank you!!!

I would recommend this place to anyone they are great honest and reasonably priced. Took my truck in to repair the ABS braking and they were fast and good had to replace the hub on the drivers side front wheel. Location is across the street from bendbroadband and first time you look at shop you will wonder why am I here don't worry they are great.

I have a '76 280Z. I have had lots of work done on it through the years but Transfix is the only company to ever get it right the first time! I wouldn't trust my ride to anybody else!

I have been bringing my vehicle to TransFix for many years. The work done on my older Chev pickup is quality and they've always completed the work when promised at the price quoted or below. Much appreciated, thanks Darwin!!!

I don't often write reviews, but hands down, this is the best automotive service repair in Central Oregon! Yesterday my son's fiance took her car in because she had gone somewhere else for an oil leak they gave her a quote at the other business of $200 she went into Transfix without an appointment and in a matter of minutes they found it was a loose clamp and fixed the problem free of charge. This is just one of many examples our family has had where Transfix has not only been the most reasonably priced but has gone out of their way to fit us into their schedule and and to do minor repairs at no charge. I would certainly give them my highest of recommendations, they are good honest professional people.

I won’t take my car anywhere else. They take the initiative to make sure any fix I need will be covered by the warranty that came with my car. They ALWAYS have my car ready on time or before expected. They are very polite, very professional and I do trust them. It feels so rare to come across an honest mechanic but I truly feel they have been completely honest, upfront, and have not sprung any surprises on me. I am a loyal customer.

Hannah,Sandra and all the employees were super to work with. Hannah's tenacity paid off in finally getting my Ram 1500 to replicate the acceleration issue while she was driving and the tech was able to pinpoint the core cause with his computer as he was riding in the passenger seat. The work was completed thoroughly,professionally and timely and all within budget.

Great customer service. Issue was diagnosed right away with an estimate of repair cost. They fit me in, got done and cost was less than the estimate. Great job!

I am always terrified of entering any auto repair shop when my car is needing service. Since I know nothing about cars, I'm certain there's been many times I've overpaid for services, so I usually just avoid it until I don't have a choice. It's June and my A/C stopped working, so I knew I had no choice, & began looking up shops in town. I left messages at 3 of them, and only one called me back....it was Transfix Automotive and I am so so so happy they did! They were quick, efficient, honest, informative and extremely nice!!! I intend to make sure that I don't avoid taking my car in BEFORE I have trouble from now on, & will always use Transfix when I need help! They were just so great and I can't say enough about the professional service I received today! I'm a customer for life and intend on telling all my friends and family about my experience!! Oh! and the ladies at the front desk were awesome too! Thanks for EVERYTHING!!! You guys rock!
