Meet Uncle Eric

Hi, I'm Eric Whalen. I started Uncle's Transmission in 1996 in Smithfield, Rhode Island. After moving to two other locations we finally settled down in Smithfield again in 2002 where we have been servicing customers ever since.

In my free time I enjoy boating, fishing, and spending time with my daughters on Block Island. I also enjoy exploring the trails of the White Mountains in New Hampshire.

My 2003 Trailblazer needed a new transmission. Work was done fast and for a reasonable price. I am driving for a second year with no issues. Highly recommended.

Earned a lifetime customer yesterday by not charging $100 just for plugging the computer into my car to clear a false SRS light.

I get all my general automotive work done at Uncle’s. It’s pretty cheap and they always figure it out on the first shot.
