What do some of our customers say …

Given my engineering background I am very much aware of the effects excessive heat has on hydraulic fluid. And, given that I regularly tow a 2.8 tonne caravan long distances, it made sense to me, when I purchase my 2021 XLT Ranger, to research the need to fit an aftermarket transmission cooler to the more complex but brilliant automatic transmission of today.

My comprehensive research eventually led me to Ron Hill Automatics at Maroochydore Qld. With due respect to other sites I visited, I found the RHA web site simple to understand and technically valid. Subsequently I had the confidence to have RHA fit the transmission cooling kit while on an extended holiday in Qld. From those from the Southern States who read this review the kit is the same as what Whole Sale Automatics Vic. promote on their excellent web site.

From start to finish the advice and service offered to me by Ron Hill Automatics were second to none. I might also add that I was surprised at how the transmission cooling kit improved the transmission shift sequence making the gear changes noticeably smoother. This was a point left to customer discovery and not sales hype.

Got my 2015 Ford Rangers automatic transmission service Tuesday after 120ks and the car drive’s so much better so happy I had it done.

I wouldn’t be waiting another 120ks.
Thank you and there they were super helpful.

Brian Smith

Excellent customer service. Knew exactly what our issue was with a Subaru XV. Invoice was the same as the quote, no hidden surprises, except for the nice bag of lollies hanging from the rear view mirror.Price was several $k less the 2 different Subaru dealers quoted. Nice people to talk to and free with their advice. Unfortunately I can’t post 6 stars.

Greg Smith

Well what can I say? From the moment we made contact with Rach from Ron Hill we were treated like real people. A company that can truly empathise with the client and who is refreshingly upfront. We did a lot of research as we have bought a new Ford Ranger and they come with inherent problems. So to overcome one of these required a lot of questions on our part and always we found Rach and Tim at Ron Hill happy answer me. Even down to the booking when parts appeared to be unavailable they pulled what strings they could and made the rabbit jump out of the hat to get us sorted and on our way. Always with a smile and a positive attitude. This has been one of the best experiences we have had on our journey to get our car set up for living on the road. Thank you Rach (and Tim) and your dad. We are very thankful that we found you and went this way. Wishing you all the best for the future and will see you when our transmission is due for its service.

Highly recommend these guys and gal’s fantastic service from start to finish and they even helped me out with a completely unrelated issue with my vehicle , Rachel on the front desk was very helpful and knowledgeable, so refreshing to get some good old fashioned good advice and customer service 10 out of 10.
