AAMCO Transmission They ripped me off Brooklyn New York
I took my 06 ford escape which had transmission issue to AAMCO Transmission at 1266 Ralph Ave, Brooklyn. While i was there waiting for being helped, i saw a customer yelling and cursing to the manager and the owner. He was complaining that he is being charged $49.99 for no reason. The customer paid $49.99 and left that he is ripped off there. I thought maybe the customer is being unreasonable. But AAMCO is really in the business of ripping people. When they came to my vehicle, i told AAMCO that my mechanic told me there is a sound coming from transmission and i need repair. AAMCO said there will be $49.99 charge to diagnose the problem. After one hour the manager comes to me and says, YES there is a sound coming from transmission and they need $900 to find out the problem. I was like... WHAT ... $900 just to find out the problem. He goes... YES...$900 to find out problem and than additional money is also required to buy parts. I said, i can't afford to pay $900 just to find out the problem. Manager says, than give me $49.99 and take your car. I was like, $49.99 for what! He goes.. this is how much we charged to diagnose the problem. I said but you did not find out the problem. He goes, well there is a sound coming from the transmission and it needs repair. I said, well thats what my mechanic told me and that exactly what i told you before you touched my car. He said well we need $900 to find out exact problem... Than i realized why the first customer was yelling and cursing on them. I had no choice but to pay $49.99 because they refused to release my car.
I tell you how AAMCO makes money. They will ask you to pay $49.99 for initial diagnose which will be credited later if a customer go with repair. But they later they tell you it will cost $900 to find out the problem so you just run from there by paying $49.99. Of course they take your key before so you cannot take your vehicle without paying them. They are ripping people. I will tell everybody. I am going to dispute this charge with my credit card.
