I too have been the victim of Jeff Madison, in fact one of his former employess was nice enough to send me this link to see the other victims of Jeff and his Wife Dawn. My first interactions with his company were off putting, first i was delivered the worng transmission, they gave me a line of s**t which i thought was my fault somehow in th end. Then i sent them back with my transmission to rebuild so i would have the correct one, it ended up taking almost a month to get the correct transmission and parts to go with it. Finally i got the transmission and put it in and was able to drive.
I asked prior to driving the car if i needed to break in the transmission and the gentlement that delivered it said it would be a good idea to take it easy for at least the first 500 or so mile, so i did. In fact even though this transmission was going in my 98 Trans Am convertable i never really got into it or tried to break it, i am a 35 year old man and have no ambition on breaking my hard earned toys. [continued below]....
..... Anyway i drove it for approxamately 2600 miles which is really good comaperd to most of the other stories i have read on this site.
Either way it should last alot longer than 2600 miles in 3 months or less. It came with a 2 year warranty and i actually paid extra for the better shift kit to help make sure the transmission held up for a longer time. This was not the case though, and since it has gone out i have not been able to contact Jeff or anyone from his company, i left messages and sent emails only to find out i was communicating with a former employee. Needless to say he is who sent me here and told me about the terrible working conditions Jeff puts his workers through.
I only hope this report saves others from losing money to this guy so he can go out and buy a couple more houses. People like Jeff and his Wife Dawn are what is wrong with this country, if you can provide a good service to people for a fair price people will come, what Jeff does is make it a little cheaper so more people can afford it but not too cheap to send up any red flags. And then this a*****e hopes for people to just take it in the a*s, on the money they paid. It is probably a really good scam. It seems to be working well for him.
I live about 30 minutes from Jeff's Business and this weekend i will be dropping by to see him. Thanks to the user Steven from Perrysburg Ohio for adding his multiple addresses, so i make sure to find hiw lying a*s. I plan on waiting around for my refund until he pays or maybe i can just get a couple transmissions from his shop to cover my bills.
I paid for my transmission to be taken out 4 times now and replaced 3. I paid 100 for each removal and replacement so it totals 1600.00 i have into a 600 starting price transmission, i could have just paid a reputable and local transmission company for that price, thanks for nothing Jeff you a*****e!
And dont worry you will be seeing me Jeff, i have a transmission for you to fix buddy!
