Went to Palatka, FL AAMCO shop to have shift lever repaired. Could not always get transmission out of "Park". Suggested to MGR that maybe a flush and filter change might cure problem. AAMCO had "Special" on flush with power purge of lines for $79.95. However, I had to pay the basic charge of $69.95 plus the $79.95. With that I would get a $30.00 discount and the charge would be $109.10 for their $79.95 service.
Then I was told I must have my serpentine fan belt replaced because it was full of cracks - none of which can be seen with the naked eye.
Then, after the power purge of the transmission, I was advised my master cylinder was "weak" and needed replaced. AAMCO gave me a written estimate of $251.71 for that.
Then had the shift lock actuator replaced at a cost of $96.00. When finished and the pickup was returned to me, I found the shift lever problem still existed; still had problems getting transmission out of "Park", and now suddenly my "Service Engine Soon" light was on.
I have since gone to a no-name garage whose mechanics bled my brakes and found the $96.00 shift lock actuator was improperly installed and not adjusted correctly. Incidentally, there is nothing "weak" about my master cylinder; that was just a means for AAMCO to rip me off even more.
I will never patronize an AAMCO facility anywhere in the United States again and have told family, friends and neighbors how AAMCO screwed me. To say that I am pissed is an understatement.
