I wouldn’t not recommend taking your car to any AMCO, I paid 3050 to get my car transmission fixed only lasted about 2 1/2 August 22,2016 to now, had a warranty but don’t want to fix my vehicle say I need to pay a &1000.00 to fix problem, then blame it on my car over heating which is totally false. Radiators and thermostat Has nothing to due with transmission. Worst place Ever i would no recommend this place do believe what you read on line.

I wasn't only duped, I was accosted and assaulted. This was probably the worst experience I've had in recent memory. Honestly, I still can't believe what happened. 2 years ago I had the transmission in my F150 rebuilt at this shop. At the time, I was debating...

Aamco review in Los Angeles, California: Horrendous Repair Workmanship

April 18, 2011, I paid Inglewood AAMCO $2,465.93 to fix my transmission. When AAMCO returned my car, the car was leaking transmission fluid and still kicking hard at 30 and 50 miles per hour. In the process of fixing my transmission, mechanic and owner informed me of other work they found that needed attention. I paid for all other work as I was told the needed work was urgent. Of course, in the meantime, my transmission continued to leak and kick. I repeatedly took my car back to AAMCO. They have the records to prove the number of times I've taken my car back to them over and over and over again. I once took my car to them and was given a loaner for an entire month while they worked on my transmission. And subsequently, every time I took my car back it was for the transmission fluid leak and hard kicking at 30 and 50 mph. In a whole month, they couldn't stop the transmission fluid from leaking out. Another thing I noticed was their inability to retain mechanics. My car was worked on by no less than--if not more than--4 different mechanics. A friend of mine once worked for this particular AAMCO shop and was told he would be let go if he couldn’t keep his uniform clean. My friend told me the owner was more concerned with dirt on the mechanic's uniform than he was with workmanship. My friend checked my car out for me, and one of the things he found was that the wiring had been completely messed up. He said I needed a new wiring-harness due to the carnage AAMCO made of the wires. Oh, and lying on his back, on the ground, under my car, outside of my house, my friend stopped the transmission leak, late last summer, 2012. My last encounter with AAMCO happened when I, again, took my car in for kicking and leaking (prior to friend fixing leak). They kept my car for about a week, making me pay for a rental car. My car was then returned to me with over-heating problems. My car had no over-heating problems prior to or throughout my AAMCO experience until that day. Without the owner's knowledge, the mechanic told me to bring my car back in, and in less than 60 seconds (knowing he had caused the over-heating problem), he went directly to the problem and corrected it. AAMCO use to offer a life-time warranty. Now they only offer an 18 month warranty, keeping you coming back over and over until the warranty is no longer effective. I was told, in a most snooty manner, that I was "extended every courtesy." Well, I would prefer AAMCO keep their courtesy and just fix my transmission for which they were paid $2,465.93. I'm told that for that kind of money, I could have had a brand new transmission put into my 1994 Volkswagen Jetta, plus a rebuilt engine. These guys do shoddy, sloppy, careless, reckless, unprofessional work, taking your money while the owner smiles and offers you "every courtesy." Today I've found that due to the kicking and jolting my transmission has been doing since I first went to AAMCO (and then leaving on a bad note) that all the transmission fluid leaked out of my car overnight and will not hold any new fluid. It just pours straight out as it’s poured in. I'm lodging my complaints with AAMCO's corporate office and with the California Attorney General's office. My advice to anyone looking at AAMCO for transmission work: Save yourself the aggravation and take your car to a place that cares more about their work than the dirt on their workmen's uniforms. In these poor economic times of job scarcity, what exactly does it take to keep a good mechanic? It's likely that at AAMCO, the mechanic that starts the work on your car will not be the same mechanic finishing said work. Who exactly can you hold accountable--other than the owner? He knows absolutely nothing about the work his mechanics perform. Well, now that I've spent $2,465.93 for the repair of my car, I find myself taking the bus to work.

Aamco review in Los Angeles, California: Racist Owner

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.

You live in a state with a B.A.R.... That's what they are for....although I doubt that they can get you millions of dollars for having to push a car.
