Transmission Repair & Installation


Based out of Whitewood, South Dakota We have been in business for over 24 years and have over 3 decades worth of transmission and automotive repair experience.

Robert (Bobby) Haiwick became involved in cars and mechanics at an early age. He started out at the Ford dealership in 1986. From there he went to work for Frame Garage in Whitewood until 1995 when he decided it was time to open his own shop. Performance Automatics was born in September, 1995.

Since opening we have expanded our shop size from one stall to 3 stalls. The types of clients we service has also expanded. Performance Automatics works with individuals and small to large businesses within a 150 mile radius of the Black Hills.
