Stay away | Aamco review from Reading, Pennsylvania

Took my 2013 Ford Fusion in for emissions &;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; safety inspection. My check engine light was on I had just had the engine replaced. There was a coupon check engine light for free, which was not free cost me $90. The code that it was throwing was for EGR valve replacement. The cost would be $648. I had the work done elsewhere. The part cost $50 RETAIL! So you guys are paying maybe $20 for the part and it took less than 30 minutes to install. There is no way that can be justified!! Lost customer and I am sharing my experience multiple times daily. That is criminal and you all should be ashamed of yourselves!

Bad customer service. Over charge | Aamco review from Chesapeake, Virginia

Yesterday I took my car to amco to get free inspection. Most place charge about 70-80. I knew they may need more diagnostics but never expected a full day with my car and a bill for 210.00 for hot air! Manager even commented when I said so I have no air. He said oh yes you do, hot air! Sales pitched and lied. I called other amcos and they were 149.$ even Honda was cheaper at 134.$ for same work. I'm disputing. Hes more in support of the business then the customers that make it one. He was not willing to admit he was wrong to his customer.

The know-it-all manager does not know-it-all! | Aamco review from Chantilly, Virginia

1.2
Details
Stay away! The know-it all manager does not know it all. A year and a half ago, I took my '91 VW Vanagon here to have a transmission replaced. I sourced the transmission myself and had it shipped from California to AAMCO Chantilly. It was a $5000 custom transmission fit into a standard VW casing, and was shipped dry. Since then I've put about 6000 miles on the van (not my daily-driver). I had several back-and-forth's with the manager, Terry Bradley. In addition to the transmission, I needed a $450 custom transmission oil cooler installed. The cooler came with custom hoses and fittings, of which neither were used. I implored Terry to communicate with the transmission builder in Ca. about how to install this custom job. I had given Terry a copy of all contact information (the builder specifically asked for the installer to contact him, and I'd let Terry know this). I had also left several copies of the contact info and instructions inside the vehicle. Terry never bothered to reach out; he 'knew' how to do it, he couldn't be bothered. No, he didn't 'know' how to do it. I should have pulled my van away when my spidey-sense told me not to trust this guy. I let my desperation for a running van win. First of all, the oil cooler was installed upside down; it has a thermostatically controlled fan that needs to blow the heat away from the van, not up into it (seems obvious, right?). The bigger problem, however, is that there are two parts to this VW Transmission, the gears and the transaxle/differential, each requiring their own type of fluid. Well, the other day, I was driving the van home from a camping trip in WV and the transmission started making some horrible noises. Since my disappointing trip to AAMCO, I've found a local guy who really knows about these Vanagons. I took the van to him, and he discovered my transmission was not happy because the differential had been filled with transmission fluid instead of differential oil. Fortunately, it seems there's not too much damage to the ring and pinion, (the truly expensive, custom parts with a limited number in existence on earth). Replacing with the proper oil has helped some of the problem, but there's still something wrong in the gearbox, possibly with shot bearings and further work is needed. Long story short, I do believe this problem was primarily caused by Terry's arrogance in not contacting the builder about the specifics of this transmission. I am not taking my van back to this AAMCO because I have zero faith in Terry/AAMCO's ability to manage this problem and I have even less faith in his willingness to accept responsibility for this mistake. Judging by the number of recent lawsuits in Fairfax County (https://eapps.courts.state.va.us/gdcourts/captchaVerification.do?landing=landing) against this AAMCO, as well as against the manager Terry Bradley personally (he doesn't seem to want to pay his rent), I don't trust this AAMCO to take responsibility for their faults, nor to correct the error with integrity, I highly recommend you stay away. Depending on the final cost to me to repair this problem, I am considering my own lawsuit naming both the manager as well as AAMCO itself.

AMMCO is a terrible company. BE CAREFUL...I took my truck over for tranny repair...said 3K but before it was over I had spent 5K. Every time I took the truck back something else was broken and needed fixing. Even new stuff from the dealer that was new was replaced...
