AAMCO took advantage of a widow ,and lied
I stopped at Aamco ,in Humble on 1960 in May. My car was jumping when I started off and my check engine light was on. I had my 87 year old mother with me ( my dad 92, was in the hospital) I needed not to get stranded some place so I trusted Aamco to be honest with me. Jay told me he would put it on the machine and do a free check. 30 min's after we arrived he comes in the waiting area and says" Good news...all it needs is the transmission flushed and that would cost 195.00...I said ...Are you sure that is all that is wrong? and hesitated because of the 195.00...He said.." I'll tell you what...if that doesn't fix it "Ill give it to you for free!"...I said then OK...! 1 hour later he comes back in the area and said well that didn't work...BUT I STILL HAVE TO CHARGE YOU...He said he would then give me the 195. off of pulling the transmission...But he could not tell me how much then we would be talking about. NOW I DO NOT TRUST HIM AT ALL AND FELT HELPLESS IN A MANS WORLD....BUT he flat out lied about doing the work for free...IS THIS THE WAT AMMCO TREATS ALL IT'S WOMEN CUSTOMERS THAT ARE WIDOWS.
Aamco Held My Car for 15 days+ for 3 day job
AAmco is the absolute worst place to go for your car on the face of this planet! I had to have my transmission rebuilt and they took my car in and said the work would take 3 days. Here i stand on day 15 and my car is still in their possession. I have no confidence in the work they did and they are completely and utterly incompetent! First they said the work was complete after 5 days (2 days late) and said it finally just needed a test drive to ensure everything was done. once they did that, they said it wasn't shifting correctly. Something was cut that shouldn't have been. Another 5 days. Day 10- test drive and they say something is leeking! he figures out that the car is leaking transmission fluid. He guesses that it's a certain thing causing the leak and replaces it. Turns out, it was something else. Now they are attempting to purchase the actual piece that is causing the leak and for a well known company, it sure takes them a long time to obtain a piece from a store that's down the street! So here i stand on day 15 with no car! DO NOT EVER TAKE YOUR CAR HERE!!!
I recently took my Jeep Cherokee into an Ammco Transmission center to have the transmission fluid changed; a simple preventative maintenance job. As I sat in the waiting room they brought out a bent and mangled dipstick tube that runs to the transmission fluid pan....

Racist Owner | Aamco review from Los Angeles, California
AAMCO Transmission in Northridge CA. If you are Hispanic don't go there. I just witness the owner call one of his employees a big fat (Spic) I didn't know what that meant until now .spic [spik] Slang: Disparaging and Offensive a Spanish-American person.He was very rude to him luckily the guy had more respect after being called that and walked away even though it looked like he really wanted to knock him out. Me being a Latino I was offended by his words ... So for all of you Hispanics out there don't give them your business. There more transmission shops out there that are respectful and would be happy to have our business.
Did not fix my transmission very bad job from AAMCO in Georgia
I took my car in to the location in Douglasville,ga because the it was leaking transmission fluid but the transmission was running great and they fixed it so they claim then two days later the whole transmission went out in it so they rebuilt it and it has not been the same since my check engine light stays on and it is leaking and transmission is leaking and tudding bad and torch convertor as well and they dont want to stand behind their work .They were rude and said nothing is wrong and it is under warranty still I even took it to another shop or should I say two different shops and they both say the transmission is fixing to fall out it is my only means of transportation and I need it fix right .
Aamco in Waukegan
It is a shame, when things get so bad that a person can no longer take his car to a mechanic for repairs without worring about what the mechanic is taking of their vehicle. I took my car to an aamco dealer in Waukegan, I guy kept my truck for 5 hours. After 5 hours he suggested the I allow him to give my transmission a power flush. After he returned my vehicle I notice that there was something wrong. This mechanic actually changed a part on my car without my permission. Be careful when you take your car this the mechanic. I am still trying to get something done about this situation.
AAMCO Transmissions, 1264 State Rt 23, Butler, NJ
Went in and explained that there was an issue that I was feeling and hearing with my transmission. Took them only a day or so to determine that it was the transmission bearings and quoted me $1400. I asked them to quote me on the cost of a new transmission, which after about 2 days they advised was about $2300. I gave them the go ahead for a new transmission and in total it had taken them just over 3 weeks to complete the job. 3 weeks!? Imagine not having your car for 3 weeks and on top of that they had only called me once during the entire process. Each time I had to stop in to ask what was going on. Only at the tail end did they call to advise that the parts were to arrive, then another call that they had arrived and that they should have it done in the next day or so. Call around and compare and get it in writing first before dropping it off here.
