Aamco - Car Repair Review

1.1
Details
Went to my local AAMCO for transmission repair. Wound up needing a new transmission. Total cost $4,200. Torque converter shudder started with 20,000 miles left on the warranty. Replaced the transmission still had torque converter shudder. The AAMCO shop that i deal with check the whole engine and said there was no compression to cylinder 4, and low compression to the other 6 cylinders. He said if i replaced the engine the shudder will go away. I found a engine for $2000. Had that installed by another mechanic because now I do not trust the AAMCO shop i am dealing with. (The only reason I put the engine in is because it only had 35000 miles on it). So now I have a new engine and the torque converter shudder started again. With my blood boilling and persistance the AMMCO shop replaced the transmission a third time. The sudder is gone a new problem has now come up. The transmission now down shifts hard at high speeds. As far as I am concerned I have 16000 miles left on the warranty the AMMCO shop in Easton PA won't do nothing any more. I am so fustrated that AAMCO puts out such low quality unsafe product that I will never buy or recomend at all. If AAMCO contacts me which they more than likely they won't. They can email me at cownbey@outlook.com

Aamco Car Repair Review

We were ripped off horribly by Carl Cox. We got tricked by free towing. It was all a joke. He ended up making my mom pay $2600 and trying to take her title. Shes still trying to find a way to get that money. They trick you by saying they offer finance options. It was all a scam. The salesman probably makes big commissions.

I had bad experience with aamco I took there to check my transmission and Peter claim everything looks good but to run another test it's going to cost me $189.00 plus tax. Telling me without this test they can't really tell what's going on . So I agree which I think this how they get over when they alreay knew what was going on. Anyway call me back talking it is the transmission and how aamco is the only that can fix this type of transmission problem lies. When I get there to pick up my car Peter did not provide me with a print out of my car and then charged me $200.00 how do I even know if he put my car on this so called machine or test if you failed to provide me with a print out. I would not recommend anyone to go them they and like to rip you off!!! At least STS will give you a free reading and print out

Rip off joint | Aamco in Venice, Florida

never fixed tranny after a month, never sent in torque convertor like they said they did, never worked on tranny except to drop it, took 3 parts when I had car AAA out of there with tranny in a box. neutral safety switch, manual gear shift lever and the sensor block. This place is a avoid at all cost shop!!!read AAMCO reviews before ever using any of these franchises. have reviewed this place before but am still trying to fix car after a year, hard to find the parts to this classic car. Dallas offered financing, but after tranny dropped said never offered it. Car sat in parking lot for a month, when told I was coming to get it tranny was dropped. No work was ever done.
