car transmission shop service problem money customer warranty vehicle truck

Never had problems with my vehicle until aamco worked on it!!! aamco

tempe arizona my car was running fine but I decided to have the safegaurd check done to my vehicle $59.00 when it was said and done $203.86.The extra cost was labor because my vehicle was hard to work on-so they said.The problem started about a week later,I left on vacation and the vehicle sat for a few weks while I was away,the day I got back there was a puddle under the vehicle,transmission fluid.The very next day I took the vehicle back to them and figured maybe something was not tightened correctly,only to have the guy come back out and say the problems were numerous and it was nothing they had done and it would be about $1900.00 to repair!My question to them was why did`nt they catch the faults in the first place and why did it leak only after they worked on it,and how does it fall apart sitting idle?

I would sue in small claims court, it might not go anywhere but sometimes just suing is worth the $75 to drive home a point to irresponsible idiots like this.

Shops like AAMCO think they can work on cars with a McDonalds mentality and don't even hire people that know what they are truly doing in most cases.

I had very very bad experience with AMMCO. Do not do service at AMMCO. They will rip you of completely. They don't car about customer at all. They are liar. They told gave me estimate on phone and final bill became twice the estimate. They made my car even worst...

It's sad but if your here you've probably already been a Victor of the fraud. Ammco off Gainsborough sq.

Chesapeake,VA charged me $210.00 to do an account check and recharge. While checking local mechanics and even another ammco nearby they would charge 149.95 and under. His bait "FREE AC CHECK" So they start with free initial then they need to do more with machine, he sales pitched me that most likely my car would work after all this was done,in the rare event it wouldn't work. Of course being held there for hours then told to really now we must do this.

I did it and mostly heard I'd be going home with cold air. I wasn't even ready to pay 150.00 for AC diagnosis let alone 210.00 to check my car.

BAD PLACE! some mechanics work for you but in this case the customer is $$$.

AAMCO 12901 Dixie Hwy, Louisville Kentucky has promised to have my truck fixed 4 days ago. The office Manager promises to call me about the status....it never happens. I must call him. It started August 17, 2010 on a Tuesday when I called AAMCO to get an idea about...

Well, it is well past the SECOND install of another rear axle for my truck. (Over $600.00 cost to me again) This one seems to cause the engine to work harder for which raises the temperature of the engine. Another mechanic looked at it and said it has drag in the axle.Of course my brakes still don't work any better either, not the back brakes. I don't get it with the Corporate office. They really aren't concerned with what the "Customer" has to say about the services and worked performed.

Lesson highly expensively LEARNED.

I am not sure What if any Warranty is there now, shall I dare even try to get results on this axle?

I guess what it comes down to is....I needed in a case during a family emergency....800 miles from my home.....and learned from the whole experience the hard way. $1900.00 worth - plus.

Aamco in killeen texas

I recently took my Mazda protege into this named AAMCO. After i told them the symptoms, they told me the problem was a switch. The following week i returned to pick up the car, paid them the almost $500 bill and proceeded to leave with my vehicle. When i get down the block i observe that my car is having the same problems. So i return the car immediately and tell them its not fixed and they tell me its a computer and i have to buy a new computer! After i had just paid for a part that did not fix it! after two weeks of not having a car they replaced the computer and the car would not run at all. So i told them to put my old computer back in the car and i would take it somewhere else. In the end my car is no better and i am $500 broker, so never take any car to this shop. They will take your money and shaft you without a thanks. The nice black man "Rob" promised to get my car back on the road in a "JIFFY". THANKS FOR NOTHING AAMCO

Keep away from AAMCO

I brought my car to AAMCo because of rough shifting. Thy sais itwas a solenoid(sp). They said it was likely something else as well so they insisted on replacing the transmission. They interchange word new and rebuilt like they were the same. Their price included $50 for towing even though I drove it in. I ended up paying $2369.81. I tried to drive home and it stopped on the off ramp of a highway. I had it towed back. They said it needed another solenoid. They couldn't locate it. The decided to put in another transmission. They kept the car ten days. It cost me $280 more in rental fees. They refused to lower the price. I contacted American Express to dispute the charge since it was never fixed. They found out and knew they would lose so they demanded cash to pick up the car. I drove it with a "new' transmission 10 miles and it won't shift and the service engine light comes on. I could have been killed twice. They are a danger to everyone on the highway. This transmission is no good and I need another one. 3 weeks. $2800 dollars and the car is worse than when I brought it in. Keep away from AAMCO unlees you want to go broke and be driven crazy

bruce must have owned the aamco in west valley that closed because the other aamco's in salt lake city have been owned by my partners and i since 1978- or maybe bruce is a "pissed off" customer who made up some things??

I worked as a Center Manager at AAMCO's all over the country from 1969 to 1985 when I bought my own AAMCO in Salt Lake City, Utah.

I could tell you many stories but I do not have the space. God bless you all.

Aamco in Roanoke rocks!

The Aamco station in Roanoke, VA on orange ave. rocks! Even though they didn't get it repaired right the first time (spent $900 and 1 week later). When I called, the manager, Mary Casey, was very helpful and said "please bring it back in right away!" They fixed it in a couple of days and now it works better than new (Isuzu Rodeo). Even though the ticket wasn't written out right and they were going to charge me again the on-duty manager, Mike King, remembered that I had already had it in for this problem and said "here are the keys, have a nice day." Take your cars there!

Aamco

Dont waste your money on Aamco. If your transmission had trouble for a long time, do not take it to aamco as your bill will be high. Just look for a place that will replace your transmission with 3 year warranty. Have i got my transmission replaced: I would have saved $1200. Do not go for a shorter warranty One advice: get your transmission fixed asap Dont waste your money on Aamco. If your transmission had trouble for a long time, do not take it to aamco as your bill will be high. Just look for a place that will replace your transmission with 3 year warranty.

AAMCO in Hattiesburg, MS

Do not take your vehicle to AAMCO in Hatiesburg MS. I dropped my car off on Monday night to be looked at the next day becuase my check engine light was on. They didnt look at it until wednsday and than asked us if we knew what could be wrong with it. They than parked it in the back of about 15 other cars and never called us or told us anything. I finally went and picked it up on thursday night and it was still never looked at again and I was told I need to take it somewhere else.
