AAMCO History

Robert Morgan and Anthony A. Martino founded AAMCO in 1963 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

AAMCO is a transmission-repair company that operates as a franchise, with the first franchise opening in New Jersey in 1963.

Morgan and Martino also founded MAACO, an autobody shop franchise. Martino eventually ended his affiliation with AAMCO to manage MAACO.

Morgan was the first CEO of the company and was succeded by his son, Keith Morgan.

In 2006, American Capital, Ltd. bought AAMCO Transmissions.

The company now has almost 900 franchises across the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico, 5,000 employees, and $31.32 million in revenue in 2012.

Brought my 94 z28 camaro to aamco in Wentzville missouri for a trans rebuild. They did not diagnose the reason but when i got it back the car wouldn’t shift basically how it was before i brought it in. I later returned the car one week later.this time it them roughly 2 days and the determination was i had a pcm. So they said I have to pay for a new pcm which I believe they shorted it out but now im out on a 2k because of there mistakes. .note they said they have pics of my trans parts that were bad clutches bands etx but he deleted them lol yhea right.

My complaint is against the Aamco dealer on Garden of Gods Rd. In Colorado Springs, Co.
My transmission went out the week of Thanksgiving while visiting in North Carolina, I had a new reman put in from Cottman there, when I got back home here in the Springs, I noticed 2 bolts sticking out by the transmission about an inch below the started area that was not screwed back in, I tried to tighten but they wouldn’t budge. I pulled in the Springs Aamco dealer to ask about them and he wouldn’t even take 2 minutes to walk 30′ to look down from the open hood to see them. He said that I could leave it and he would run a diagnostic check later today or tomorrow. I ask for the owner and he said he was the owner and he said that if I wanted it looked at I would have to make an appointment. All I wanted was for him to tell me if it was something critical where I need to make an appointment to get it fixed. He was about as rude as a person that I’ve ever met for being in business . I will never go back to him, will drive to Pueblo or Denver if I need any transmission problems.
This complaint may never get read or anything done about it, but at least I tried and got it off my chest.

I took my car in to the for one thing and they found over things so they say because I had extended warranty.They kelp it for one month and two days .they put a engine in it which I don’t think I needed they broke my front motor mount. And didn’t tell me l carry it back because it was loose.they still didn’t tell me they had broke the motor mount. Two week later my car started to leak transmission fluid.i carry it back that’s when they told me the mount was broken. I had had the back mount put on at the same shop under Paul management and was told that I didn’t need the front one. Not only that l had a high pressure power hose put on that was put on right way. I ended up taking it to Buick to get all the problem fixed costing me another 900.00 dollar.i am not pleased at all .I have left my name and number on the phone.

I wish to submit a severe complaint against AAMCO in Redlands ca. their address is 1267 W Redlands Blvd
Redlands CA 92373 their phone # (909)7937261
I had my transmission rebuilt 3 times from the period of Oct 2013 and June 2014. All under warranty and all 3 rebuilds failed.
I paid with a credit card the amount of 3291.60.
When the transmission started to fail again for the fourth time I decided to take it to another shop and it was discovered.
An internal part of the transmission fractured and there was metal debris in the transmission oil so another
Rebuild was recommended and performed. I have a receipt that’s states these recommendations.
I sent a letter to Mr. Larry Adams who is the owner of the AAMCO shop Located in Redlands CA demanding a refund of my money that I paid since his shop never performed a satisfactory result
He denied the refund so I submitted my case to small claims court and strangely enough despite all the evidence I submitted,
Receipts, pictures even physical evidence , the judge still ruled in their favor.
I ask for my case be considered for any action against the AAMCO franchise thank you

I took my van to the Salem Oregon AAMCO to have them check out my idle. My van ran good but the it was idling high and then low. They googled the possible problems (this is what the guy said) and came up with it being a valve. They tried to different valves and then a reading came up saying that our computer was bad. They said this would for sure fix the problem so I agreed to replace it with a new one. We got the van back and it was doing the weird idle again. The guy said it was another bad computer (the computer was new how could it be bad?). Took it back in and they replaced the same valve as they had previously tried, and that was the problem. In my opinion, it seems to me that we were taken advantage of, maybe he wanted to make a fast buck off of us. So we never needed a computer. We got stuck paying for a brand new computer which cost me 1100.00, and this is not including labor. My computer was obviously not bad, it was the valve. I had a huge feeling that it was not my computer. I have also emailed and called the headquarters several time and no response. Due to this poor customer service and their cheating ways of trying to make a quick buck off of me, I will be writing reviews everywhere, and see if I could report this company to a Bureau. What they had done to me is not right at all!

I dont even know where I’m gonna start with Aamco.
Back in 2013 our Chevy Malibu 2008 all of the sudden stop moving. We took the car to Aamco and they told us that the transmission was completely out and we needed a new one. We paid over 4,000 to get out car fixed. We picked the car up and everything seem fine until about 2 weeks when the car started leaking power steering fluid. We took the car back to Aamco and they said that by mistake the place one of transmission cables on the wrong side and it had burned down. The manager had an attitude just because they had to fix it at no cost. They fixed it but in less than a year after I get another engine light took it to AutoZone for a diagnosis and they said the code it’s giving its for a transmission failure. I couldn’t believe that after paying over 4,000 to get my transmission fixed I’m still having problem with it when I contacted Aamco and all they could say was how my warranty its up and I can drop my car off but I’ll have to pay for the repairs. This place is a SCAM and I can believe they are still in business. I think a lawsuits its in order at this point.

Well….lets see. In the spring we took our 1993 Dodge Spirit in for poor heat issues and oil leak. Aamco replaced the thermostat, hoses, radiator, timing belt, water pump, and valve cover gaskets. In less than 2 weeks it was leaking antifreeze and oil..again. Called them and of course got the “bring it back and we will take a look”. It was “now” the head gasket, which they wanted to charge an additional arm and leg for, which we “negotiated” a much lower yet still WAY to high amount..got it “fixed”. Fast forward a couple of months and the car is acting up again… By this time we realize that Aamco is unreliable and we take it for a diagnostic somewhere else. The results we got were HORRIBLE. They are: Cylinder head gaskets leaking, intake manifold gasket leaking, valve cover gaskets leaking and multiple codes. I am unsure why…after a few THOUSAND dollars, our car is now a complete POS that is unreliable and is leaking crap everywhere. It will cost MORE to fix the crap that AAMCO “fixed” than what the car is worth. I do believe a lawsuit may just be in order. This company should be ashamed of themselves. You put my family at risk and essentially stole our money as they work was faulty. P.S. This shop is located in Bellevue, Nebraska and Steve is the Manager.

Working out of town in Ohio. Needed my truck fixed. I was quoted 1900 for the work needed. When i revived the bill it was 2800. Called owner, nothing. I felt uneeded work was done and over priced. I am letting everone know never to use a aamco for service. Poor public relations. It’s aamco on Arlington road in Akron Ohio.

I took my 2009 Honda Pilot into the Aamco shop in Scottsdale AZ on Butherus. September 22, 2014 They replaced my transmission for $2000 and had the car for 5 days. My wife and had to rent a car so that we had transportation to work etc. One week after picking up the car the transmission fluid leaked out all over our garage floor and the transmission was slipping again. I took the car in again on a Saturday, on Monday I called to find out what caused the issue and to find out how long it would take them to fix it? I asked if they would reimburse for a rental car and was told that Aamco does not do that for any reason. I was told that a seal was bad in the transmission after one week of driving it? Again they had the car for 2 days and I had to rent a car. I have had the car back two weeks this time and the transmission is leaking all over my garage again, I called Aamco and they refuse to pay for a rental car and stated that we just need to bring the car in again for them to look at and figure out why this keeps happening? My car is in worse shape now than it was before I took it there with the transmission slipping. I am so disappointed in the way they handle there customers and would appreciate a response from corporate. Bad comments travel much faster than good. I hope your corporate office is customer service oriented because your service station in Scottsdale, AZ sure isn’t.
