About Capitol Transmission & Auto Care

Repairing Cars in Hartford for Three Generations.

Since we first opened our doors in 1934, our family owned and operated auto repair shop has provided clients with the very best in auto and transmission repair. Hartford drivers have known Capitol Transmission as the premier destination for friendly, expert auto repair for three generations as we’ve passed ownership from grandfather to father to son.

Now known as the best Hartford transmission repair shop, Capitol Transmission started as a general auto repair shop in 1934. After World War II we honed our focus toward transmission repair to meet the needs of our community until 2000, when we began performing general auto repair again. Even after experiencing a massive and devastating fire in 2006, without a hitch we kept working on our customers’ cars. When our new building was completed, we were able to further expand our auto repair and transmission repair services to accommodate our ever-growing customer base and to provide even more complex repairs. We are currently in our third location and we remain on the most respected and well known facilities in the Connecticut.

Since Paul Sr. started Capitol Transmission in 1934, we’ve been pioneers – both in the transmission and auto repair business and in providing some of the best customer service in the industry. In fact, we attribute our longevity and our loyal customer base to our single-minded focus on our customers’ happiness. Simply put – everyone at our Hartford auto repair facility loves to take care of people!

We’re known around the country for our expertise and business acumen: so much so that we were featured in the January/February 2013 issue of Gears Magazine!

We work hard to maintain our reputation as the premier Hartford transmission repair facility by employing top auto repair technicians. We’re constantly sending our technicians to continuing education in the latest technologies and repair techniques – so you can rest assured you’re receiving expert transmission repair and auto repair. Hartford native Paul III brings generations of expertise and experience to running the shop now – maybe in a few years, we’ll even see Paul IV taking over the shop and keeping it in the family!
