He never told me that he would have to tear the transmission down. He told me that when he gets the OK from the warranty company he would let me know but he took it upon his self to tear it down. When I called the warranty company back (about the new repairer) Jacklyn extension 302 and Daniele at AUL Administrators (extended warranty company) said I was covered for the $1325.00, but when the adjuster went to A Transmission to examine the transmission the adjuster said that the warranty would not cover because (since the transmission was cleaned to be put back by Aamco at my request to put it back the way I brought it in). This does not make sense because they told Mr. Onwuegbusi that it was approved for $1325.00, according to Mr. Onwuegbusi and Jacklyn and Daniele. They could not find any indication that anything had broken. The damage they NOW determine to be (worn out) because of no shavings from slipped gear(My question is then how or why did it get approved before? I don't get it; 1st it's approved with Aamco and now it's denied with A Transmission. When I called AUI back they now had no record of ever approving the work. I believe Mr. Onwuegbusi did damage to my claim when he canceled with them. I have it in writing by Aamco El Monte that the adjuster approved $1325.00 with them. They would not let me cancel him to let the new repairer take over until Mr. Onwuegbusi (Aamco) called them and cancelled. Also, on the work order he wrote 'towed in' making the assumption by a reader that the car was totally disabled, but that was not true. We drove the car in we just couldn't go faster than 35mph. When I told him to put it back as it was it now couldn't go in reverse. So he left it more damaged than when he received it. When I told him this in front of the police he got angry and scribbled it out on the original work order that I do not have a copy of but BAR does. He refused to give me any more copies of anything.
I want a refund for the $595.00 and the car rental, and the transmission repair because I believe Aamco El Monte used trickery, fraud, and untrue advertising. Aamco (the parent) stepped in and joined Mr. Onwuegbusi in denying me my refund and therefore I believe they assisted him in damaging me, also.
He was going to reimburse me but didn't because he said,'AAMCO is going to investigate and get back to you.' They have not.
I claim I am owed:
ENTERPRISE RENTAL 8/11- 8/12/07 2 days $33.64 ea $ 67.27
BUDGET RENTAL 8/12 -8/17/07 5 days $29.99 ea 149.95
TEAR DOWN 595.00
Amount that Aamco El Monte stated on typed work order
#121496 that the warranty said to him, they would pay 1,325.00
TOTAL OWED ME $ 2,137.22
This Statement of Facts is to the best of my recall and not intended to defraud, mislead, nor misrepresent to anyone.
