Trans-X-Press transmission scam and con artist uneducated transmission shop milwaukee Wisconsin
I had towed my vehicle to Trans-x-press to have the truck repaired.One the vehicle was at the shop I was told it needed a transmission I left a 500 deposit and was told it would be 895 + fluids and taxes on 6/26/13. A couple days later I was told it will need a torque converter and front half shaft that would be and additional $350.On 7/3/13 I received a call from the shop office recipient at 3:30pm stating my car was done I call the shop at 5:30 letting them know I'm on the way but they told me my vehicle would not go into 2wheel drive and was told they will repaid and be done in the morning.
That following morning 7/4/13 I went the to Trans-x-press and the mechanic could not get the car out of four wheel drive He had already taken transfer case motor off the vehicle once I pointed out that the driveshaft that is connected to the rearend was moving and the car was not moving he said that he did not know that and was not the one that test drove after the transmission was installed and stated that she test drove it in 4 low which make the front pull and will not allow it to change gears.The Vehicle was having the same problems that I took it up there for.
Once I was told that it was not diagnosis and they thought was the tranny we went back and fourth I finally came to the conclusion that I will not be getting a running vehicle I was offered by the shop they will do the labor for free if I get a rearend. I had the rearend at the shop by 4 pm which cost 475 used.The mechanic had to put the transfer case motor back together and could not he then left it off and manually tried put it back in 2 wheel drive by turning a computer control dial, after 4 hours I was called to come to the shop and help the mechanic carry the rearend to the bay the truck was being repaired in.
Once the rearend in was installed without the emergency brakes connected correctly he continued to try to get the vehicle to two wheel drive. An owner of another shop came and helped him connect the odometer and get it drivable. I paid the balance of 850 not know it was still n 4X4 but 4high which allows it to change gear correctly.I took the vehicle back to the shop 7/5/13 letting them know that the transmission was leaking it the transmission was overfilled first gear slipped,exhaust leak service engine lights came on and it was in 4 wheel drive.At that time he drained the fluids and cleared the codes and tightened up my exhaust bolts.
Once he could not get it out of 4wheel drive if said he can't fix it's my problem they stated there only licensed to do transmission.The office recipient told me to sue them. I went to another shop and explained the situation and they told me that the rearend was probably the problem from the get go and the transfer case motor was computer controlled and couldn't be manually set. What do I do they have BBB decals on there wall but as I investigate there are not with the BBB.The shop would not give me the owners contact information.I the owners name MARK T. ANDERSON. Please Help Me and Stop them from doing this to others. I have spent over 1800 dollars and the vehicle was never diagnosis from the beginning.
