RK Trans & Auto Repair | Robert Klein - Owner/Technician/Rebuilder

Meet the Team

Robert Klein, Owner/Technician/Rebuilder

Robert has worked in the transmission industry for over 30 years. At age 8, he disassembled his first transmission (C6). At age 13, he built a Turbo 350 with the assistance of his Dad. Since then he worked for his family’s businesses, remanufacturing torque converters, and rebuilding transmissions. Ever since moving to NC in 1996, he has grown in the industry and connecting with his passion for helping people fix their vehicles the right way.

He moved to NC, following his soon to be wife, because he wanted a fresh start. Growing up in NY, NC was a nice change. The weather is warmer for longer during the year, so he can ride his motorcycle for many more months of the year. He also enjoys heading to WDW in FL for vacations with his wife and sometimes his 2 nieces, which he adores all 3 of them. He worked for Ralph Smith at Cottman of Garner, NC for over 10 years, continuing to build his reputation. Learning all he could from Ralph until he “retired” from the transmission industry in 2011. In 2011 he opened RK Trans & Auto Repair, Inc to bring his knowledge and love for the automotive trade to all. They are now well on their way, trying to reach all that need assistance with their vehicles.

RK Trans & Auto Repair | Robin - Service Advisor Robin Rosen, Service Advisor

Robin is an ASE Certified (C-1) Service Consultant and has over 6 years of experience in the automotive industry. She started as a Service Advisor, with no knowledge in the field, when the owner of the shop that serviced her vehicle offered her employment. She learned on the job and when ASE started offering certification for Service Advisors, she was determined to have her own certificate on the wall next to the Technicians’. It was required that all Service Advisors have 2 years in the field before sitting for the exam. With 2 years and 2 weeks, she sat for the exam and passed the first time.

Originally from New Jersey, she’s been in North Carolina for 11 years. Her immediate family is also in the area.

Robin is the proud mom of a teenage daughter. She enjoys spending time with her and they both enjoy horseback riding, science museums, festivals, traveling…and Twenty-One Pilots.
