Jack Smith’s Transmission and Automotive Services opened its business in 1962 by NASCAR driver Jack Smith, who owned several shops throughout different states. In 1999, Tom and Kathy Warwick took over the shop in Asheville and have operated the business in the same location until March 2014. Before the old building was sold and the business moved three doors over to its new location, Jack Smith’s Transmission resided in the exact same building for 52 years! Its new location is at 240 Biltmore Avenue Asheville, NC 28801. Jack Smith’s Transmission and Automotive Advantage have become a collective business and are now operating under the same name.

What People Are Saying

I was fortunate to find them when I was there for a quick weekend trip to see a friend. Being from out of town it's always scary to have a car break down, however, Tom worked quickly to take care of a pretty big deal and have me on the road to get home safely!! A big thank you!! My next visit I will have to come say hi again!!

I had my Lexus transmission rebuilt at Jack Smith and now it shifts like butter. Not only did they exceed the estimate on time, but were under the estimate on cost as well. We here at the Organic Mechanic have used Jack for transmission rebuilds for many years and they always stand behind the work and are a pleasure to do business with. Thanks again for the great work!!!

These guys are great and they really know their stuff. I work with a non profit that fixes donated cars for placement with local families in need, called Wheels 4 Hope- and Jack Smith Transmission has been a key player in our success. They are highly skilled, honest, and friendly. Taking your car to Jack Smith's helps Wheels4Hope to help local people get cars so they can to work!
