Aamco must think that people are willing to continue to bend over because these types of repairs are so expensive. And, they are expensive.

I had that defective *** removed from my car and bought it from the transmission shop.

I am going to find out just who's transmiss...

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 from Somerset, New Jersey

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

Original review posted by user Apr 19, 2015

I had my tires fall off my truck that were put on by them on the parkway doing 65 miles a hour ,than they said after my accident that they would make repairs only did half and than lied about the rest of work lies is all that came from the owners mouth after I complained to B.B.B. AND CONSUMER AFFAIRS THAT DID NOTHING IN MY DEFENCE, crooks their warrenty is not good for anything but toilet paper. The owner changes his mind about repairs and cheats the government out of taxes by way of billing ,he says pay cash is cheaper so I did and than he didn't honor the warrenty as he promised

No Costumer Service and Failed Service | Aamco review from North Plainfield, New Jersey

3.0
Details
They have now had my Ford Explorer for a work time of over a month, with three different visits and over two grand in payments and i still am car less. Along with this they will not return my calls and when i call get rude responses. When asked for owner he too refused to return my car and when i finally got him on the phone when i called was told he was simply to busy to call me. This was the Aamco in North Plainfield, New Jersey. SO to sum up, they failed at their service and are now anything but cooperative at making it right. Oh and icing on the cake, their cooperate website complaint page does not, When you submit it responds with an error page.

I took my car to Aamco in New Brunswick on Aug. 7, 2012. Peter stated that the car needed a new engine, which my warranty company did not agree with Peter. Peter gave the hardest time ever to my warranty and told them he would not fix the engine that the only thing he...

The man is a sales shark and has absolutely no concern for quality and doing things the right way. Aamco clearly condones his activity.

Had the trans on our Windstar rebuilt less than three years and 22000 miles ago. At the time Jamie talked us into an additional $1000 for "upgraded parts". Recently had the o/d light flash so we brought it in to get it checked and figured we would get a trans service...

Aamco Transmissions

I had to get my check engine light fixed for motor vehichle inspection purposes. Paid over $1400.00 and the problem was not fixed. They fixed it long enough to go through inspection. They are now trying to charge an additions $1100.00 to fix the problem. We specifically took it to have th issued fixed and they wrote an itemized billed of $1400.00. None of the problems promised to be fixed were fixed. The check engine light is back on today. I would never ever recommend AAMCO to anyone nor will I ever have them touch my car again.

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.
