Complaint Review: Goodfellas Transmission
Goodfellas Transmission Lieing Theivies Tarpon Springs Florida
I have decided to tell the would about this horrible experiance i had with goodfellas Transmission. If you are about to buy a transmission from them hopefully you read this first. That way you wont make the same mistake I did.
Goodfellas transmission caliam they have 60 years of experiance but i beg the differ. I ordered a Transmission for a 2004 crown victoria police interceptor. It took them a month to build the first transmission which would not be to big of a deal except that it turned out they sent me the wrong transmission and it did not fit my car. Well at this point i had to deal with their customer support which is pathetic to say the least. They avoided me for as long as they could. Eventually i got them to send another transmission. This time it was the correct transmission but it had the shorter non police (civilian) outputshaft. so to make a long story short this transmission did not fit my driveshaft and was completly usless to me. At this point my car has already been waiting a month with no transmission in it. Now this is were it got frustrating. Once they knew that they sent me the wrong unit again they complety avoided my calls and emails.
So thinking like the crooks that i was dealing with i decided i would have a friend call up and pretend to be interested in ordering a transmission. once they called back i got on the phone and gave them a piece of my mind. After a long conversation with the owner I came to the conclusion that the only way i am getting out of this is in person. so i told the owner that i am driving from where i live in MA down to FL to return the transmission. The owner was surprised that i wanted to do this and he agreed that i would be refunded for the transmission ($2,400). Drove down there with some friends of mine and showed up at Goodfellas Transmissions only to find 2 greek mechanics that barley spoke english. The owner was no where to be found. He avoided his own shop for an entire week while i was down there. He never even answered his phone. The employes talked down on their own boss and even offered to "rebuild" my transmission. I Knew by looking at the dirty one bay shop that i would be better off building a transmission in my driveway. So instead of dealing with them again I left the transmission with the greek mechanics and had the local police document it. Now i am in a never ending lawsuite with this business owner.
From my experiance as a mechanic it is clear that no one that is a part of Goodfellas has 60 years experiance in anything except being a lieing crook. Both transmissions that i reacieved where probably just painted used units. I am willing to bet that they didnt even have high performance internals. just used stock internals. It is also clear to me now that the owner just spent all of my money and thats why he didnt show at his own buisness to talk to me in person. I am 24 years old and i have little wisdom to offer but this place right here is a Ripoff.
I have now done some deep research on goodfellas which i should have done before i gave them my $ but hey what can you do. I spoke with the previos boss of the owner before he owned goodfellas and he said that the owner of goodfellas was a salesmen not even a mechanic when he worked for him. The boss did not seem to like him very much but he was hesitent to say it. so much for 60 years of mechanical experiance. I also read some where online that the goodfellas website was never payed for and that the owner of goodfellas pretty much stole his web site. I am not sure how this happens but anything is possible with this guy. Also have read a number of other rip off stories about this buisness online sense my purchase. Only if i found these articles ealier. I hope you read this and change your mind about a purchase and if the owner goodfellas transmission should ever read this I know your a fraud and even if my lawsuite doesnt get you karma will!
"If you know whats good for you, you'll never buy a transmission from Goodfellas. "
