The Area’s Auto Repair Experts - (Southaven, MS)

Coleman Taylor Transmissions is a top quality transmission service and repair facility in Southaven, MS. We are a family operated transmission repair shop, known for going above and beyond for our all our customers. In 1961, Larry Coleman and his brother in-law Bill Taylor opened a transmission shop and started over a 62 year history of growth and development. Every manager who operates a store comes through the ranks from the bottom up, so that everyone is a fully trained ASE certified technician. When an employee attains the expertise, we start looking for a location for them to manage. We expand to create opportunities for our employees.

As a valued Coleman Taylor Transmissions Manager, Rick Mordachini has been with the Coleman Taylor family since 1999. As a child, Rick always enjoyed taking things apart, and after a while his father made him start putting them back together!


Rick has been in the automotive industry on and off since the early 1980’s. He is a ASE Certified Master Tech, and has received numerous awards.  Rick has received the Record Setter Award every year since 2002, Manager of The Year, Leadership Award, Most Improved Team, and 600 Plus Club; all of which were reached “because of an exceptional staff that can work together.” Rick has never once called in sick.


Rick says “We try to treat everyone fairly and honestly. This is how we have grown our segment of the market.  I like to work hard at work, and play hard when not.”  Rick has two great kids in college and hopes to get enough time off to ride some of the most scenic roads in the USA on his Harley. 


“Life is good, thanks to my crew and the always supportive Coleman Taylor family.” 
– Rick Mordachini, GM
