Complaint Review: AAMCO Transmissions
AAMCO Transmissions1520 Pcific Coast Highway Harbor City,, California U.S.A.
AAMCO Transmissions - Sergio Mgr. AAMCO Transmission is dishonest and conducts business under FALSE ADVERTISING. Their so called FREE ESTIMATES are not true. Ripoff Harbor City California
and they were all between $750 and $850. Also, for a completely rebuilt trans. would be between $1500 - $1700. So we decided to have him do it. My wife than called Sergio and had him go ahead and do the work. Now mind you I still think he's go to take it apart and tell me what the estimate would be and than I can decide. Well, when my goes to see him later that day he tells her it will cost $2700.00 put in a rebuilt transmission. My wife almost hit the roof. She than proceeded to tell just put it baack together and thanks but no thanks. Surprise, "Ma'am I will gladly do that after you me the $800 you me for the labor. To make along story short we've gone round in circles and short doing bodily harm to him, it is June 20th and my van is still up on the racks at his shop. Now after researching their website, it does state a free external estimate, however NOWHERE IN THE ADVERTISMENT does it state FREE EXTERNAL ESTIMATE $800.00 FOR INTERNAL ESTIMATE, had I understood it(which is hard to because of their DECEPTIVE ad) or had Sergio informed me initially that the free estimate only pertained to any external problems I would have shopped around. Oh and during the phone call between Sergio and my wife while she was on the bus she Expressed to him that she didn't want to get ripped off again like last person who did our trans. 2 years prior. She stated to him that the last person charged us 1495.00 and want to know what was his estimate and he said yeah that's about what it is going to cost no problem Mrs *******. Anyway I'm trying desperately to find help because for 1. I still have 3 payments left. 2. I have 4 kids and was forced to spend the last of my on a rental car 3weeks and just a car that runs half a** for 300.00 just ot get to work and kids to school. If anyone has any advice it would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!!!!!!!!!
