Absolutely robbed of my money | Aamco review from Boston, Massachusetts

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!

Our son was on the road when he had car trouble. This was the place he stopped. After diagnosing the problems for 1.5 hours they said it was the battery. They charged him $400 for a battery, then 50 miles out he had the same problems. Stopping at another garage they...

Aamco on Melrose

I talked to Steve prior to bringing my car in. I told him I was suffering a financial hardship but need my car fixed. He assured me that they would only charge me $750 in labor no matter what plus parts. The final bill was $3,100 which included $1700 in labor. They fixed some parts on the transmission. They said I would have a 100,000 mile warranty. I was trapped into the work or I would have to pay still pay $600 diagnostic check. With no work done. I got a co-signer for their finance company. The same day I drove off it felt weird. After making a couple stops it made a loud noise as I started it. I called Steve said to bring it back. I really couldn't afford to rent a car again since they already had my car over a week. So I waited only to have the car break down 2 weeks later. It took them 5 days to pick it up and I'm on th 4 th day still waiting for them to even look at the car. Every time I call they say the mechanic is looking at it. Rip off!! This is the Los Angeles location on Melrose.
