Aamco review in Los Angeles, California: Horrendous Repair Workmanship

April 18, 2011, I paid Inglewood AAMCO $2,465.93 to fix my transmission. When AAMCO returned my car, the car was leaking transmission fluid and still kicking hard at 30 and 50 miles per hour. In the process of fixing my transmission, mechanic and owner informed me of other work they found that needed attention. I paid for all other work as I was told the needed work was urgent. Of course, in the meantime, my transmission continued to leak and kick. I repeatedly took my car back to AAMCO. They have the records to prove the number of times I've taken my car back to them over and over and over again. I once took my car to them and was given a loaner for an entire month while they worked on my transmission. And subsequently, every time I took my car back it was for the transmission fluid leak and hard kicking at 30 and 50 mph. In a whole month, they couldn't stop the transmission fluid from leaking out. Another thing I noticed was their inability to retain mechanics. My car was worked on by no less than--if not more than--4 different mechanics. A friend of mine once worked for this particular AAMCO shop and was told he would be let go if he couldn’t keep his uniform clean. My friend told me the owner was more concerned with dirt on the mechanic's uniform than he was with workmanship. My friend checked my car out for me, and one of the things he found was that the wiring had been completely messed up. He said I needed a new wiring-harness due to the carnage AAMCO made of the wires. Oh, and lying on his back, on the ground, under my car, outside of my house, my friend stopped the transmission leak, late last summer, 2012. My last encounter with AAMCO happened when I, again, took my car in for kicking and leaking (prior to friend fixing leak). They kept my car for about a week, making me pay for a rental car. My car was then returned to me with over-heating problems. My car had no over-heating problems prior to or throughout my AAMCO experience until that day. Without the owner's knowledge, the mechanic told me to bring my car back in, and in less than 60 seconds (knowing he had caused the over-heating problem), he went directly to the problem and corrected it. AAMCO use to offer a life-time warranty. Now they only offer an 18 month warranty, keeping you coming back over and over until the warranty is no longer effective. I was told, in a most snooty manner, that I was "extended every courtesy." Well, I would prefer AAMCO keep their courtesy and just fix my transmission for which they were paid $2,465.93. I'm told that for that kind of money, I could have had a brand new transmission put into my 1994 Volkswagen Jetta, plus a rebuilt engine. These guys do shoddy, sloppy, careless, reckless, unprofessional work, taking your money while the owner smiles and offers you "every courtesy." Today I've found that due to the kicking and jolting my transmission has been doing since I first went to AAMCO (and then leaving on a bad note) that all the transmission fluid leaked out of my car overnight and will not hold any new fluid. It just pours straight out as it’s poured in. I'm lodging my complaints with AAMCO's corporate office and with the California Attorney General's office. My advice to anyone looking at AAMCO for transmission work: Save yourself the aggravation and take your car to a place that cares more about their work than the dirt on their workmen's uniforms. In these poor economic times of job scarcity, what exactly does it take to keep a good mechanic? It's likely that at AAMCO, the mechanic that starts the work on your car will not be the same mechanic finishing said work. Who exactly can you hold accountable--other than the owner? He knows absolutely nothing about the work his mechanics perform. Well, now that I've spent $2,465.93 for the repair of my car, I find myself taking the bus to work.

Aamco review in Boston, Massachusetts: Absolutely robbed of my money

Do not go to the AAMCO in Allston, Massachusetts. They put in nearly 3,000 of transmission work. 4 months later, the transmission fails. They told me they fixed the leak so I had them out 600 dollars more into the front end. I get the car back and it breaks down again. This time they tell me that the transmission is no good and will not reimburse me for the 600 dollars for the front end. DO NOT GO THERE! They are dishonest and manipulative. I drove by a few times and my car was sitting outside the shop, they never even checked their work.

I heard about the no credit check financing offered by Aamco. I took my truck in when my newly rebuilt transmission started slipping again after taking back to the original shop where it sat for 4 weeks before being corrected. I was afraid that the additional repairs...

but, you must remember that each shop is independent from corp and they have the choice of participating in the financing programs or not. You need to ask this question first.

Now, if your app was submitted and declined, you must keep in mind that the financing is provided by a 3rd party financing co and the center has no control over this.

In fact, due to privacy laws, the financing co cannot even tell the AAMCO center why you may have been declined. Unfortunately, due to many factors, not everyone will get approved.

On 11/27/12 aamco rebuilt my transmission. By January 17th it stopped again. My car lot didn't want to pay for it to be towed so they sent me back to Aamco to get it towed. Aamco did tow it to their lot. And it is now Jan 24th and they still have diagnosed my car yet....

DO NOT BRING YOUR CAR HERE!!!!! I had a supposed "brand new" transmission put in 4 months ago. The transmission already has broken down. They are the worst communicators about what is going on with your car and will take at least a week to diagnose ANY problem with it....

I took my vehicle in last year and I was assured by the manager himself that I would pay a fixed amount for the repairs of my car. When I went to pickup my car, an additional $900 was applied under the rouse of having to order "special parts". When I contested the new...

AAMCO is a rip off.I disagree with Independent. I worked for many years in auto repair.

Everyone knows that if a repair is going to cost more than what was quoted you call the customer and get their OK. Especially 900.00 over estimate!Maybe you should go work for Aamaco.

They would love you! Let us know the name of your shop so we can avoid the ripoff tactics you use and go to an honest shop!
