Our Lakewood shop was founded in the 1980s as the original location for Advanced Transmission Center. The founder, Danny Moyle, aimed to serve west and south Denver neighborhoods from this facility. Across the last 40 years, over 10,000 transmissions, transfer cases, and differentials have been repaired and rebuilt at this local transmission shop. The reputation of the business was founded on high-quality repairs and friendly service! It continues to serve customers in Littleton, Golden, Wheat Ridge, Lakeside, Edgewater, Sheridan, and other southwest Denver areas.

If you need Lakewood transmission services, you’ve come to the right spot! Over the years, local residents, businesses, and municipal entities have trusted the integrity, fast service, and quality workmanship of the Advanced Transmission Center team. That has resulted in an unrivaled reputation. Our transmission and driveline business has worked hard to achieve the highest number of 5-star reviews across greater Denver. Many of our best customers are Lakewood general automotive repair businesses that refer their customers to our shop for transmission repairs and services. We take pride in being your best local transmission shop!

  • NAPA AutoCare Center
  • AAA Approved Auto Repair

Most other “transmission shops” have transitioned to general automotive work (brakes, suspension, tires, etc.) because they can’t keep up with the complexities of the drivetrain industry. It takes reinvestment in tools, training, and continuous education to handle the increasing challenges of transmission repair, transfer case repair, and differential repairs for modern vehicles. That’s a challenge that we take on every day, and we intend to maintain our strategy to be the best specialty transmission shop in Colorado!


We are also thrilled to be Colorado’s first-ever transmission shop to be named AAA® Approved for transmission repair. Moreover, we are the only driveline specialist in Colorado that is a certified NAPA AutoCare facility.

Protecting Your Vehicle, Protecting You

THE PROCESS: Trust your vehicle to the experts who have been proven successful across multiple generations. Successful repairs start with a thorough inspection. We accurately diagnose your car, truck, or SUV using our free TrueTest InspectionTM. When you entrust your vehicle to our experienced staff, you’re protected. We never attempt to fix your vehicle issues by playing a guessing game and randomly replacing parts. Some shops are focused on quick and cheap repairs. We’ve learned this approach creates another problem right around the corner. Our team completes repairs with the confidence of expert diagnosticians and a thorough transmission inspection process. The ethical foundation of our business prevents us from gambling with our customers hard earned money. We aim to fix it right the first time!

We are proud of this legacy over the last five decades! You can see what others say about us before choosing our local transmission shop. In fact, we encourage and prefer it! You will find us recommended as a top Denver transmission shop on multiple consumer sites (e.g., ReferraList.com, Expertise.com). You can also read hundreds of satisfied client reviews on platforms like Google and Yelp.
