(Phoenix, Arizona) March 12, 2012– Tri-City Transmission of Tempe, Arizona, was named a finalist for the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce Impact Award.
This award recognizes enterprising business owners in both large and small organizations who have made an impact on their communities.
This year Tri-City Transmission celebrates 40 years of servicing, repairing and rebuilding automobile transmissions in the Phoenix Metropolitan area. It was purchased by current owner Dave Riccio, in 2007.
“On a regular basis, maybe once a week, we get someone in our shop and I tell them they need a transmission and they tell me, ‘I just bought the vehicle,’” he said.
He has never seen so many people coming in with newly-purchased cars that need thousands of dollars in repairs. With the economy stalled and so many people with bad credit, Riccio said more and more people are turning to Craigslist or small dealers to buy a car.
Tri-City Transmission serves Phoenix, Scottsdale, Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Ahwatukee, Arizona, AZ and all of the Phoenix surrounding metro areas.

Six years ago, Dave Riccio, owner of Tri-City Transmission, was diagnosed with MS. Because of his diagnosis, Dave is a big supporter of the MS Society.
MS is an unpredictable and devastating disease that can attack ANYONE, and in the prime of life, which is exactly what happened to David Riccio, when he was just 27, with a young family. That’s why he’s participating in “Walk MS in Phoenix” and asking you to help him make a difference by donating to his team!
Donate $25 or more to the Tri-City Transmission Team for the MS Walk in Phoenix on November 5th, 2011, and we will credit $104.00 toward any extended transmission diagnostic or major transmission repair over $500.00.
