Want to know the truth behind the money making scams at Aamco Transmissions in Greensburg,Pa 15601 ???? Then you should read on. I have been ripped off.
If you have ever had any kind of work done on any of your vehicles, regardless of what the problem was, you my friend have been taken for your hard earned money. Here are some examples of how you have been ripped off.
1.Diagnostics.Here is how they lure you in. 99.999% of the vehicles that get diagnosed have a simple to fix problem. So you could very well, like in most cases, especially with newer vehicles, have a sensor ON THE OUTSIDE OF YOUR TRANSMISSION, that would only take 5 minutes to swap out for a new or used one, that would only cost anywhere between $12-$50 be THE ACTUAL PROBLEM, well guess what, they will tell you your transmission needs rebuilt. So instead of only paying the afforementioned price to have your transmission FIXED, you will be paying anywhere from around $500-$2000. Doesn't it just make you sick???
2.Transmission Power Purge. Now this is a joke. It doesn't matter what year vehicle you have or how many miles are on it, they will say you should have it done. Now let me remind you,this costs $99. This is what they are SUPPOSED to do. They hook a machine (in some cases like they are supposed to do, but only 15% of the time hook it up) up to your vehicles transmission cooler line and flush out your used tranny fluid and replace it with new NO NAME bottom of the barrel the cheapest they can buy in bulk DEXRON 3 fluid.
Now some of you are thinking, Ford takes Type F, Chrysler takes another type of fluid, yeah that's right, you get what they give you IF YOUR FLUID IS DIRTY. If your vehicle already has clean fluid in it, guess what?, YOU ARE PAYING FOR NOTHING!!!!! They do not and will not flush out clean fluid. If you have had this done, you got took of your loot.
This needs to be told to everyone. Here is what needs to be done. Somebody should if they haven't done already, and I am making attempts to have this done also. Call your local news channel, or even a bigtime show that is on TV, and set your vehicle up by putting dye in the transmission fluid that is already clean, nice and red. Go and have the "Power Purge" done and have your vehicles fluid checked to see if the dye is still present.I guarantee that it will be. THIS NEEDS TO BE DONE PEOPLE !!!!!!
Nauseated yet?? Read on......
3.Transmission rebuilding. They make it look good. Your transmission will have 75% if not more of it's original parts that it went in with when you pick it up. Yeah, that's right, your part of the bill includes the price of a whole rebuild kit, they put in only WHAT WILL MAKE THE TRANSMISSION FUNCTION, alot of times, an inexpensive sensor. In some cases, about 40% of the time, your transmission will fail again before your "warranty" is up. And at that time and that time only, they might actually put all the new parts they should have the first time your vehicle was there. Your transmission will appear to have been "rebuilt" from the outside. You will be lucky if you receive a new torque converter.
4. Parts supplied. You get aftermaket no name parts at more than premium part prices.
I can go on and on but I have a limited amount of space here. The facts above need to be spread out to everyone who has a vehicle. The truth needs to be heard by everyone. Print this out, make copies, send it to people you know or just post a copy or a hundred in you supermarkets, hangouts, car clubs, even your enemies, all will thank you once THE TRUTH HAS BEEN HEARD. TELL EVERYONE
