In 1978 Dave’s Transmission Service was first opened by David (Dave) LeForge at 1990 McCartney Ave. Ypsilanti, MI. 48198, Dave opened and ran this 2 bay shop with his wife (Inge) while raising three children. Dave believed in the fair treatment of your clientele and credits them with the success of “Daves Trans” by which it has become known in the community. Dave made the specialty of the shop rebuilding and servicing American made automatic transmissions, while this still is the case with some expansion into other manufactures. Dave retired in March 2011 after serving Ypsilanti at this location for more than 33 years, congratulations and best of luck!



In 2011 Daves Transmission Service was purchased by Ronald (Ron) and Tonya  Oliver, Daves oldest son, and his wife. Ron worked for his dad for more than 17 years as a R&R mechanic and trans tech. While our main focus of business will still be the automatic transmission we are expanding into several other areas of repairs that our customers have come to know us for and trust us to do the needed repairs. We are grateful for this opportunity to continue to support and serve the people of Ypsilanti.
