To take apart & diagnose the problem was free but when the company called me back, they told me the bill would be $1195 to reassemble it back together. The company took apart the transmission, transfer case & the drive line. There were no problems with the transmission and the company did not have my written authorization agreeing to the charges. Now, in order to fix the transmission back the way it was before I brought it in for a simple repair, I will have to pay another auto mechanic over $2500 because Aamco tore up all the seals in the transmission during the dis-assembly.
It was reported to them that the transfer case was leaking & u-joints were bad because it was vibrating. The transmission was perfectly fine with a golden color and held the correct amount of fluid that was required.

The company is located at 18420 Texas 3, Webster, TX 77598.
I have already filed a complaint with the Texas Attorney General’s Office and left a review on google & called the police for me to retrieve my vehicle. I will also be calling the BBB, making signs and filing a case with the small claims court tomorrow to retrieve the $ it will take to get my transmission back in the same condition it was before I brought it to this shop. I’ve only begun exercising my rights to not allow this company to scam or use extortion on any other customers. I didn’t get my pre-law degree for nothing and now I will make sure that everyone knows how this company really does business!

I had my car towed to Aamco for a diagnostic some time around February 20th. I was told that it was being towed to the location in Miami Gardens, Florida but for some unknown reason it ended up at the Hollywood, Florida location which I was unaware of until March 20. I called continuously and spoke to the manager Ricky to find out the diagnosis. He kept telling me that they had not looked at my car yet and that he would get back to me with the diagnosis. On March 4th I received a call from Ricky stating that my transmission could not be rebuilt due to missing parts and I needed to install a used one. He stated that he had found one that cost $1495 and the labor would be about $600. He told me that if I wanted the work done he would need a deposit to cover the part and the balance of $600 once the work was done. He told me once the part arrived it would take about two days to repair. I called him two days later and he stated that the part was defective and he had to order another one. I called him a few more times and kept hearing the same story about defective parts. On March 21st I received a call from Ricky stating that he had bad and good news. The bad news was that the car would not start because of electrical problems and the good news was that the transmission was installed and to get my car I needed to pay the balance. I said okay I will take the 600 to the shop to pay the balance. He told me that I did not owe $600 but $1600. I was shocked because I had not agreed on that price. Also, Initially I had my car towed to Aamco because he assured me that he would beat the quote of 2995 to do the job that I received from the previous shop that diagnosed my car. In addition the estimate was never presented to me in writing. When I paid the remaining 600 plus an additional 90 in error he stated that until I paid the remaining balance of 995 I could not get my car. Now today I receive a letter of lien against my car in the amount of $4995.00. What a rip off. How dishonest and malicious. I thought that Aamco was a reputable company. What happened to ethics and morally correct ways of doing business?

Nothing is being done. I need to speak to someone in Corp. 20 days later car still not fixed! Took my car to 3rd ave ave vanburen in Phoenix, Arizona

3-25-14 Took Car to AAMCO for check engine light with code P0765 p0700

3-26-14 Went down to AMMCO Spoke with Andrew to give auth to work on car. Was told car in limp mode needs soft rebuild and should only cost me 1929. Set up financing for 1500 to get the work started.

3-27-14 Was told the trans will be broken down price may go up if any hardware issues but since the car was moving did not for see price going up.

3-28-14 Was told once the receive the correct torque converter that the car should be ready by Monday or Tuesday

3-31-14 Price jumped up to 2800 then told me he would knock it down to 2570.30. Still waiting on the part to be rebuilt they sent the wrong part over to him. Had to complete a second financing for 800

4-1-14 Still trying to get a hold of someone to send the correct part. He contacted regional manager and still not getting the part sent for my car.

4-2-14 Still waiting for correct part lots of apologies and said he had 3 parts sent over trying to get the correct one so the trans can be put back in my car.

4-3-14 Lots of apologies and states that they will pay 30 a day for a rental and deduct that from the price I have to pay. Explained I cannot rent a car. I have been paying people for rides. I have spent over 500 in the last 2 weeks to get to work and having people take me around.

4-4-14 Said car was fixed. Took it on test drive no issues. Had no ride to pick it up.

4-5-14 Went to get car drove less than a mile and check engine light came back and car still in limp mode and will not go past second gear. Called Andrew and took car back to the shop. He said he will call the owner over the weekend and get me rental on Monday. Called enterprise and all cars booked up. I explained to him I cannot rent from Enterprise.

Called the owners office 6029442246 to reach Scott and he was not avail left message for him and was never contacted.

I hear nothing over the weekend

4-7-14 Call Scott 602-944-2246 the owner says he cannot rent a car for me but he can pay for it. So I have to put deposit down. Called Enterprise they state they need reservation id from AAMCO but I cannot rent from them

Called 602-340-1142 to see if they had another company they go through. Robin stated they go through Hertz and gave me number 602-997-0578. Chris states they cannot rent to me without 200 plus cost of rental. Then AAMCO will pay for it. Explained to Robin I have given you my last money. She states she will call me back .

Robin calls back and states their hands are tied they cannot put their name on rental it is illegal and they found out what was wrong with the car. The computer needs to be replaced. They noticed it before. I asked then why wasn’t it replaced to begin with. They will not get it for two to 3 days. So now I have to still pay people to give rides. I asked so your company is not going to do anything for me for this. I have to come out of more money and deposits and you still get paid. Nothing but an apology.

I have to pay 400 worth of payments every 5th of the month. One financing plan is 285 the other is 140. Andrew did not explain that to me until I went to pick the car up. I asked if the payments were going to be high. He stated since the loan was so low they should not be.

Yesterday 4/8/14 around 12 pm we went to Aamco on north cavecreek to speak with the owner Scott about the issues with my car.

As soon as I started explaining my side of things I was called a liar by Scott. I was trying to explain I have been paying for rides and up to 500 to get back and forth to work and taken places. He Told me if I needed to get to work that bad I should get on the bus.

I tried to explain how far my job was and hours but he kept saying I was lying. The job I was currently working was on Alma School and University. I live on 19th ave in between baseline and southern. My hours was 4am to 1pm. No buses run that early. Only cabs. 17 miles one way. 34 miles round trip. He offered a rental.

There is no way after giving them my last money on a car that was not fixed right the 1st time. Paying everyone to drive me around I couldn’t afford someone holding 250 or more of my money. If you are paying for it why do I have to come out of more money?

If you didn’t do anything wrong why did you offer to pay for a rental. Did not get loud with him at all until he kept calling me a liar and discriminated against me. He said if I had good credit and a better paying job I would not be in this situation with having to get his high interest financing. They never explained how much the payments would be until after the fact.

What does that have to do with you not fixing my car correctly to begin with. While we were discussing my issues another customer came right back in after picking up their car and it wasn’t shifting. Then we expressed that we wanted the 500 I spent back and my car fixed today. He said he is not giving me anything but the car will be fixed today. They are going to put in the new computer and program it.

He acted like he was doing me a favor by fixing the broken computer that they never fixed the first time. Said he give me 500 but I had to pay 450 for the computer he was putting in. Why would I have to pay for something covered under your warranty.

An issue unsolved by you. I was never contacted and still do not have my car. He said he doesn’t work on transmissions and Andrew is his trainee. So how could he know the issues are being resolved on my vehicle.

4-9-14 11:22am Andrew called me informed me he was out sick. The computer that they received for my car was the incorrect one. They have to have one overnighted from the Midwest. Should be here tomorrow and will contact me once the car is ready

4-11-14 8:31 am called spoke with Andrew. Says they are still waiting on the computer for my car. Should have it by this afternoon. Has an appointment with the programmer this afternoon. Once that is complete I should have my car today. Asked if it would be completed by 3pm. Says it should be mid Afternoon.

.

4-11-14 Andrew called me at 4:24 pm telling me he still had not received the part. He has been calling over and over can not reach anyone at the part supplier. He has been calling supervisors with no luck. Apologized and states this is ridiculous. Will send one of his guys to Gilbert to pick up the part. Since the supplier should be closed over the weekend.

I put my trust in this place from two so called professional. One was the owner Ed Merchant at 2629 Valley Avenue in Winchester Virginia. The other was Terry Kanatus also at 2629 Valley Avenue in Winchester Virginia. I was lied to from the start and taking advantage of. I was to get a transmission replaced with a new one. A 4l80e transmission is supposed to one off the best out there and this reman transmission I paid over $3600.00 for didn’t last 5 months. Three times they attempted to fix it and three times they failed. I asked for a refund and got laughed at. Needless to say I got a lemon from Terry Kanatus and Ed Merchant. And Ed Merchant and his AAMCO on 2629 Valley Avenue in Winchester Virginia stole/ripped me off of $3600.00. Please pass this on and if you need any work done to your vehicle don’t make the same mistake I did and 11 other’s by going here. There are many other honest shops to go to in Winchester and Leesburg Virginia. I am sorry for the two mechanics that have to deal with this.

On April 1, 2014, my son cashed his disablility check and spent every dollar to pay for a “rebult transmission” to ANGELO GARRUBA DBA AMMCO TRANSMISSIONS located at 8866 Rosecrans Avenue Downey, CA 90242 (562) 531-9090, my son was very glad to receive a 6 month 6,000 mile warranty in writing, since he needs transportation to his medical appointments, On Monday April 7, 2014 on his way to a surgery appointment at Kaiser in Downey, the car came apart, we have been told that the car needs a transmission, and that it will never run again. AAMCO Transmissions Warranty of 6 months 6000 miles lasted 6 days. ARE ALL Independent Owners of AAMCO Transmissions Shops CRIMINALS AND THIEVES or is it only ANGELO GARRUBA?

I called AAMCO in Lake Worth, FL on 3/19/14 to have them tow my car to check to see why my car wasn’t changing gears. On 3/20/14 Alex called me back and said that I need a new transmission and it would cost me $1500. He said the job would be complete tuesday 3/24/14. I gave him a verbal permission to start working on my car. Alex told me that since it was a big job, he would need a deposit of $600. On saturday morning i brought him the deposit and he reassured me again that my car would be complete on tuesday. On tuesday afternoon, I called Alex to make sure my car was done and he said no and that they were waiting on one part. He assured me that my car would be complete Wednesday afternoon. I called again Wednesday and he said that my transmission was rebuilt and all they had to do was a test drive and that he would give me a call. Since i didn’t hear from him thursday morning, i had my boyfriend call him. He said that he got a speed sensor error code and that he ordered the part and he would have my car on friday. Alex called me friday morning and said that my car is ready to be picked up. When the tow truck picked up my car, the only issue it had was the transmission. When i went to pick up my car, my motor making noise as if a hammer is hitting it, my car turns off when i put in park and Alex refuses to listen to me that they just made a bigger problem on my car. I refused to pay for a car that’s in worse shape then when i brought it in. I called Alex this morning 3/31/14 to ask for corporate’s number, Alex told me “if I contact corporate then the owners will delay fixing my vehicle”. I asked him for the owner’s name and he refused to give me that information. We are on day number 12 and I still DON’T have my car.

In 2012 I had my water pump replaced, the next year in 2013 my water pump went bad again! it is now 2014 and once again my water pump has broke. I think this place is a scam, They put two bad water pumps on my car, and now I’m expected to pay for another one! I’m no mechanic but I know that I should be replacing my water pump for a third time! I don’t know where they are getting their parts form but this is unacceptable. And the manager of this establishment was very arrogant and condescending. his customer service skill were atrocious. Rob, at AAMCO in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, Is not someone that has the concept of right and wrong. Obviously you guys keep putting on bad water pumps, its not like I choose to hand over 600 every 6-7 months for a water pump. They don’t value their customers at all, because if they did I wouldn’t be having this issue right now. Had they done it correct the first time I wouldn’t be having an issue. This is unacceptable!

Took our 2002 Century Buick into Aamco in Martinsburg, WV on Feb. 14th because the car would not switch from 1st to 2nd. Said that it needed a new transmission. Approved for the work to be done on Feb. 19th. We did not get the vehicle back until Feb. 28th and it still was doing the same thing. My husband made a mechanic go with him to test drive the car. I don’t think it was test drove to begin with, but they said they would have to call in Aamco techs to see what was wrong. We didn’t get the car back until March 24th and as of the 25th it is still doing the same thing. Would not recommend them to anyone.

I brought my 2000 dodge Durango to aamci in corpus Christi Tx, Robert told me I would need a new transmission which would cost me $2900.00. Robert told me if I came in that Saturday and paid they could have my truck ready by Tuesday. Needless to say it wasn’t ready. By that Friday I had enough I went up to the shop and got fed more bull****. I told them I was going to the grocery store and I’d be back in 45 minutes. When I returned the shop doors were closed and when I walked in the office I smelled a strong odor of marijuana. I’ve finally got my truck back but it isn’t fixed. I’m not sure what my next step is but I think they all need drug testing.

To whom it may concern,
I brought my 2002 V.W. Jetta into your Mandeville, LA (2021 Tamvest Court) location for an overheating problem. I was told it had a bad water pump and would cost between $600.00-$700.00, went in to pick up my car the bill was over $900.00. 45 days later it starts overheating again, I bring it back and I am told nothing is wrong (they added water) 45 days later it starts overheating again, I bring it back again but this time I am told the water pump is bad (again) They would put another pump on at no cost but they did find a bad thermostat housing that would need to be replaced for for $50.00, I go to pick up the car 4 days later to find out the thermostat housing was now $180.00 and the water pump was not changed out because it was only a leaking pipe.
I brought my vehicle to AAMCO so I would not get screwed by an independent mechanic, I am now wondering if I ever had a bad water pump, I get the shop telling me one price over the phone and another when I show up. I paid the bill just to get my car back but will protest payment with Visa and considering legal action as I now believe the pump was never changed out.

I know exactly what you are talking about. That is the exact same thing they told me. They said the transmission was on its way almost two weeks before the storm. And after the storm that is what they said. “Stuck in Georgia because of ice”. The sad thing is I was told that two days after the ice. They are so full of it. I lost my job because i couldn’t get to work because of that storm. It was our only 4×4 and I told them that a month and a half before hand. Thats how long it took them.

I bought a transmission from AAMCO in Winchester Virginia last may. The transmission went out I took it to AAMCO for them to fix it it took them a month and a half to fix it and still not right. They have tried to fix the transmission 3 times now and its still not right. I spent alot of money on the transmission and put my trust on your name (AAMCO). January 29, 2014 alot has happened because of this company in Winchester, Virginia. (1) Terry Kanatus runs this AAMCO on 2629 Valley Avenue Winchester, Virginia 22601 and was telling me how bad the company where he got the transmission is but yet puts a second one in from them. Terry Kanatus had originally told me the transmission is coming from a company called Transtar. Which it did not it came from another. Three times they attempted to fix it. (2) I had lost my job because I couldn’t make it without the four wheel drive. Terry Kanatus knew that when I brought it back. (3) while my truck sat at AAMCO someone stole a monitor out of my truck. By now I have had enough of it. I told him I did not want the transmission to take it out   and I would like to have my money back. Terry Kanatus laughed in my face and said “That’s not go to happen”. So I left and contacted Ed Merchant the owner of this AAMCO had explained what’s going on and what happened. His suggestion was to bring it back so they can fix it. I told Ed Merchant they tried 3 times already and that I don’t want it and to take it out and would like my money back and I’d go elsewhere. Thats it. Ed Merchant then in a raised arguing tone said “I don’t think so and if you (George Hunter) want to take me to court that’s fine. I haven’t lost yet in court”. Then he started laughing and hung up on me. This sure isn’t very professional and I’ve been very patient with Ed Merchant and Terry Kanatus even though I got fired because of this. PLEASE if you could help me I would definitely appreciate it. All the money I spent for the transmission and only drove it for six months. It is not right or fair for anyone to have to go through this. It took me a long time to get the money to have this done. Not to be taken for a ride, laughed at, hung up on, or lose my job over. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR TIME.

I just recently took my truck to get fixed at the Aamco here in Phoenix, Az, store number #19694. Store owner is named, Scott. Be very careful when taking your vehicle to him. I just paid him 1,970.30 to fix the issues with my truck. Does anyone know who I could call or get a hold of (if any) to help get my truck fixed RIGHT. This is ridiculous to take your truck to a major brand like AAMCO and get taken like this. He changed things around and did not inform me. He is telling me he’s going to have to charge me for the things I’ve paid for to begin with. If anyone knows who I can contact it would be greatly appreciated. If anyone from corporate Aamco reads this I would love a response because this is just not right. I am a very DISSATISFIED customer.

I had the most unpleasant experience at the AAMCO in Danbury CT, on Tuesday, March 4, 2014. I had brought my 1996 Jeep there, with a coupon that I had printed out from their website for a transmission flush. I needed to make an appointment to have this done. The manager, Jim was boorish and extremely unhelpful. He was condescending and insulting. He told me that the diagnostic/repair would take 2 hours. He then proceeded tp tell me that the transmission flush would not correct the problem, that it was either a catalytic converter or something as simple as a tuneup. I decided to have them do the tuneup and was charged $216.00, which did not fix the problem. The invoice stated that the mechanic had replaced the spark plugs and wires. I called my father and told him what Jim said. He told me that he would check it out when he got home. We discovered that the wires were never replaced! There was a thick coating of grease, grime and dust all over them and there was no way that could have happened on my drive home which is under 10 miles! I took HD pictures of the wires to show their condition. I immediately called my credit card company to file a disputed claim.My father called Jim and told him that he was displeased and that he was coming there first thing in the morning to speak to Jim. When we got there, I saw the man that had done the work. I wanted to ask him about the spark plug wires, but Jim quickly said “Don’t say anything Pablo!” When my father asked to see the spark plug wires that were supposedly removed from my car, Jim began rummaging through a garbage can and pulled out a few wires. My father asked if he could look at them. Jim, made a face and said “I don’t trust you!” Then went on to ask “Where are you from?”, followed by “This is America, not Russia!” “Everyone thinks that they are so entitled!” My father said that I should be refunded the $216.00. Jim refused. My father told him that he was filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau, the commissioner of the Department of Motor Vehicles, as well as contacting headquarters and also filing a grievance with the commissioner of Human Rights and Opportunities! If, it had not been for the coupon, I would not have come to AAMCO in the first place. Jim does not represent your franchise with the type of exemplary service that you advertise. He is a poor example of what a manager should represent! I would not recommend your service to anyone! I feel that I should be compensated for the dehumanizing treatment and for the poor service.

Well, let me tell you my story of dissatisfaction. We took our 2001 Chevy Silverado in on 1/23/14 knowing there was transmission problems, expecting to be told there was problems. After taking a week to determine we needed a new transmission, we said okay fix it. (Oh by the way we had to rent a car starting on 1/23 and then had to rent it another week because it took them a whole week to determine we needed a new transmission. Then the reason for the second week was the transmission was coming from Atlanta, GA, which was under a total shut down due to ice storms. So we were okay with this, can’t help mother nature.. So we paid Aamco $5700.00 to fix the transmission, by taking out a loan in order to pay for it. We had the truck only 15 days, when the transmission went out again. Now its been 2 more weeks that they have had the truck, 2 more weeks of car rentals which now have total over $1000.00 and the car has to be back by 4:00 pm today 3/5 and its now 3:06 pm. We have no more money for car rentals, and still no word if it fixed or not. I will never use Aamco again and will be sure to pass the word in any means possible of their service
This shop is in Bear, DE

But surprise. Aamco say a total of $475. + tax.

The worker don’t even work on the truck is leaking on the same spot no marks of work at all
The manager is so aggressive. He doesn’t validate the 90 day guarantee.

I took my Camry 2011 to AAMCO @ 7247 SW 40th St manager is Lazaro Borrego . Mr Lazaro on Monday 17th took a look at my car and told me that it was the Fuel pump and that was going to cost me only $269.00 and that it would be ready the next day early in the morning,when I went to pick up my car Mr. Lazaro said that it was not the fuel pump , that now he had to order rebuilt injectors and that was going to be an additional $600.00 and labor of $356.00. also that it would take 2 to 3 days. on Wednesday I show up at 9am and he tells me that my car was ready? and that the bill would be $1,451.00 also adding a blower of $132.00. I was in total shock of how can someone just take your hard working money just because.Then he calls me and tells me that the car was not ready until today Thursday. So again I go to pick up my car @8:20 and and the hood of my car was up and they tell me that they had to re- order the injectors because they were no good, so I left I came back 15 mins later to see exactly what they were going to do and to my surprise they tell me my car was ready???????? how did they manage to reorder the injectors in 15 mins and place them in my car???? at that point I ask Lazaro to call the owner of this AAMCO by the name of Michael Szafranski and we did a three way call. At that point Mr. Szafranski just told me that if I did not pay ” he would call the police tomorrow and have my car taken and place a Lien” This AAMCO is a fraud , they never did anything to my car, they just changed the Fuel pump and stole my money $1,451.99

I took my 2003 Acura MDX to the AAMCO in my town Hightstown NJ 08520 to get it checked out because it wasn’t shifting into the proper gears. When they took a look at it they told me that it was my transmission and that I would need to get a new one or have it rebuilt that was back in June 2013 it is now Jan 2014 eight months later and my car is still doing the exact same thing I took it in for back in June. I took my car back at least 4 times to get my car fixed and to this day it is not fixed I also had them fix my radiator that they said needed to be fixed and that also is not working properly I have spent well over 3,000 on this car that this AAMCO said they fixed. I will not be going back to them since they do not know what they are doing. I want to take this to my lawyer to get a full refund. I am not happy and every time I take my car back they give me some bulls*** excuse I would like to personally speak with someone about my problem. If you could please contact me at the number I have provided so I have resolve this problem

My 2003 Rav4 is hard shifting I took it to AAMCO at 950-954 Somerset St. New Brunswick, NJ 08901. They conduct a complete diagnosis of my vehicle before, and recommend transmission repair that will cost almost $3941.47. when the repair was completed, I was told that it will still hard shift, and eventually break in, During picked I test drove my Rav4 and realize that it was still hard shifting as he said, but the problem was too identical from before, not satisfied with AAMCO competence so I took it back they did another test and they told me that I need a computer that will cost an additional $1600 more to repair. I believe if AAMCO had done a complete diagnostic at when they first receive the vehicle the real issue would have been identified and cost more than the value of the car, now their competence level is in question am convince that my car was misdiagnosed.

My car transmission on our 2005 Ford Taurus was repaired by AAMCO transmissions in Cincinnati Ohio – Car was sent to a Erlanger Kentucky facility we found out later and when we got the car back the front and rear bumpers were beat up very badly we ask the owner Fred Ebbert what was going to be done? — He denied the damage !!! We had an estimate completed for over $1,100.00, What is going to happen with this? Fred has been an absolute Jerk about this and we have been trying to get resolution for over 3 weeks, If we do not get any satisfaction on this, we feel the only recourse will become a legal one. Someone from corporate please call me at 513-305-XXXX ask for Tim.

I had Aamco in North Attleboro, Massachusetts rebuild the transmission for $3,387.
The warrantee for this work is a 1 year warrantee. The transmission broke again and Aamco Transmissions has denoted that even though it’s only been 6 months that they are not going to cover it under warrantee. I am being told that it will take at least another $2,200 out of my pocket (that was the minimum price)for it to be fixed again.
Aamco told me that I drove 13,400 miles in 6 months and the warrantee was for 1 year/12,000 miles. I am appalled that a large conglomerate business like Aamco Transmissions will not help their customer towards the cost to re-rebuild the transmission.
I am financially unable to pay anything towards another bill. I would guess that the initial transmission rebuild job was inadequate for it to only last 6 months.
Can you please help me?

I had my 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix transmission rebuilt which cost me $3.115.91 on 9/4/12. When I went back to the AAMCO that did the work I discovered that the shop had closed it’s doors without notifying anyone. I called the office number provided and was informed that the owner closed it’s doors and left no forwarding information.

This office was located at: AAMCO, R.J. FAMILY ENTERPRISES, LLC; 177 S. Delsea
Drive< Vineland, NJ 08360.
I am now beginning to feel the same problems that I felt in my transmission when I bought it in. What should or can be done about this problem. The work was guaranteed
by AAMCO and I feel ripped off that the company just locked it's doors to its customers and employers with no solution.

What is your recommendation to this problem?
