About Us


We have been providing full transmission service since 1961. We have over 50 years of transmission experience.



About Glen Burnie Transmissions

In 1961, Marvin Keyser, along with childhood friends Lou and Harry Deitsch, decided to turn his favorite hobby into a lifelong career. With only a handful of technicians and a small garage, they set out to build a transmission business based on honest pricing and guaranteed service. Today, Glen Burnie Transmissions is one of the nation's largest independent transmission centers. By 1988 GBT had grown to incorporate nearly 20 technicians and 21 service bays. GBT provides the fastest possible service without sacrificing quality. Let us help you get the most out of your transmission.

Glen Burnie Transmissions services all cars, trucks, mobile homes, buses, vans, and 4x4s. Each of our specialists are experts in a particular type of transmission. They are trained and regularly update their skills and knowledge as new types of transmissions emerge. We have full-time electrical diagnostic technicians, installers, and many other additional technicians. Sixteen of those technicians have been with us for over ten years, and two of those employees have been here for over thirty years. You can rest assured Glen Burnie Transmissions only specialize in one thing…transmissions.

At GBT, we pride ourselves on superior service. Our staff is always happy to answer questions, and management is onsite during all business hours. We also offer complimentary road tests to help assess your transmission needs. Give us a try. You will not be disappointed!


Taking the Troubles out of "Transmission Troubles"

Vehicle problems are inconvenient to say the least, and loss of transportation seems to always come at the worst time. We strive to make this experience as painless as possible. We have operators standing by, as well as experts to provide diagnoses and estimates, completely free. We tell you exactly what is wrong and what we can do to help. We have AAA of Southern California 100% customer satisfaction reports for several years. We provide financing when needed, free towing for the vehicles we work on, and local rental vehicles are available to keep you operational. When you do need a replacement, you can choose from our huge inventory of remanufactured transmissions to get you on the road again in the fastest time and with the greatest confidence.
