Rebuilt transmission | Aamco review from Brick Township, New Jersey
I brought my car to AAMCO in Point Pleasant New Jersey. Was told by Rich Hollwood that it was the torque converter. He gave me an estimate of $2,200. Shortly thereafter it escalated to to $2,700 and then it was $3,000. By the time we finalized the work it went to $3,200. I was stuck as the car was in parts and he offered to give them to me in a carboard box. I was captive and so they were able to extort me for $3,200. Stay clear of AAMCO in Point Pleasant New Jersey.
Transmission | Aamco review from Tampa, Florida
AAMCO was TERRIBLE. The man told me that my transmission would cost $1600 and that it was a good deal considering that there were transmissions done for $2100...after I told him I would think about it becuase that is ridiculously expensive, he offered to buy my car...Later on I came to find out that it wasn't even my transmission that needed to be fixed it was my exaust...SHITTIEST SERVICE EVER. The man lied about my transmission needing to be done & when i was upset about the high price he offered to buy it (knowing that it would only cost him about 300 to get what needed to be done, done.) Worst service ever.
AAMCO in Turnersville, no clue
Took my truck there for a transmission leak. Usually do all my own work but had no time. I didn't have a recommendation, so gave them a shot. Got the truck back for the quoted cost, but service was sloppy and it was hard to tell if the leak had even stopped. Two days later that was answered. Leaking worse. They took it back and fixed again, and said it was a bad gasket. No charge. Well, no fix either. Still leaking. Took it back again today. This time of course it was something different. The transmission needed to be pulled out ($650) and THEN an I'd get an estimate. He did offer to apply the old bill to the new repair, but I have no confidence in their shop at this point. Beware. Read reviews before you go!
AAMCO is only out the get profits off their franchisee's, as a previous owner I got screwed by AAMCO home office. They actually recommended one of their own corporate workers to become our general manager, only to find out he was there to spy and literally take us...
Shady shady shady. I went in for a simple oil change. I noticed something was amiss when I saw them jacking my car way up in the garage. One of the guys came in with this gloom and doom report from the mechanic that basically everything was wrong with my car and...
I always do my own mechanical work, but I decided to let AAMCO of Columbus, Ga replace the front seal on my transmission, because I didn't have a lift, and it would have taken longer. I supplied the front seal and they did the work, cost me a little over $900. Two...
Aamco Charges $595 to give customer a Quote
I had another competitor's quote for $2100.00 Aamco's Arlington Hts, IL branch suggested a price to rebuild Mazda transmission at between $1500-$1900 but they needed to take down trans to see the exact nature of repairs needed. They said a "basic rebuild" would be $1545. Quote came back at $2379. At this early point I was already "stuck" with Aamco as I would have had to pay the $595 + $85 towing to take my car elsewhere. After a few "extra" charges my final bill was $2796.05, $696 over my competitive estimate and $896 over Aamco's up-front "guesstimate". What a poor consumer model of locking customer in to the quote and then piling on charges. At the time I was there another customer was in the process of suing Aamco because he had paid for three repairs and his trans was still not working properly. It's a wonder this dealer doesn't spend the majority of his time in court!
Aamco are *** artists no matter where you go!
Took my car in to Aamco in Miamisburg Ohio after being told my fuel pump may have blown, but if I was lucky it was just a relay. Had Aamco tow the car in and they told me it was BOTH fuel pumps. Being a bit suspicious already, I researched this and found that my model does have two 'pumps' in the fuel system. Cost to replace was $1,500. As I certainly couldnt afford $1,500, I was told about the easy no credit qualifying program. I still decided to get another opinion. In the meantime, they offered to buy my car if I wanted for $2,000 - I declined since I knew the blue book was higher. Took the car to a new mechanic that works on his own; New mechanic told me that the fuel pump was NOT bad - it was in fact the relay - an $11 part!!! Paid $75 total for what almost cost me over $1500 - I feel like they were scamming me to try and get me to sell my car to them for something they could have fixed for $11 - or worse yet, would have charged me $1500 for a fuel pump(s) that they NEVER would have fixed, fixed an $11 part, and just made me THINK they changed the fuel pump!! Swindlers of the highest caliber - will tell everyone I know to never go here for any repairs.
Aamco in warren writes bad checks
Sold $800.00 worth of parts to the Aamco transmission shop at 14021 10 Mile Rd in Warren MI 48089 586-693-2440. They paid with a check that has since bounced. When I called them on a Wednesday I was told the manager would be back Monday. Something didn't seem right so I drove over there on Thursday and was told the owner had quit the business, employees hadn't been paid in two weeks and customers cars aren't getting fixed. All attempts to get this resolved have been unsuccessful so I thought I would warn anybody that might do business there.
On February 17, 2012, for safety I had my vehicle towed to Aamco. I contacted AAMCO via telephone (301) 776-5944, located at 20 Washington Blvd, Laurel, Maryland 20707, Laurel, Maryland, that the vehicle would be towed because I believe the transmission was slipping. ...
