Paradise Coach - Used Motor Homes, Portland, OR Complaint - Underhanded & Dishonest
SHERWOOD, OREGON -- My name is Kurt Enge, and I am the Manager of Aamco Transmission in Tigard, Oregon. I am a Christian man and feel it is my personnal duty to report that Paradise Coach in Sherwood - Tigard, Oregon, recently brought in a motorhome that they had ALREADY SOLD, because the transmission was leaking fluid. The Manager of Paradise Coach, Jeff ?, stated that they had "Cheap Sold" it because the bank note on it was coming due.
We found that the transmission was leaking from multiple areas and recommended an inspection for reseal, which requires removal and disassembly of the transmission. At this point, Jeff, asked if there wasn't some cheaper way to make it stop leaking "for now". I explained that this was the only way to stop the leak, so he agreed reluctantly.
Once the transmission was removed and inspected it was found to have internal part damage as well as severely burned clutchs. This unfortunatly made the cost of repair go up. Jeff told me that they didn't have enough profit from the quick sale amount to cover the proper repair, and asked me if I would just "patch it up" for less money. I told him that I would not do something like that and he became upset. About 15 minutes later, Jeff called me back and told me that I should not do anything as he needed some time to make a decision.
Two days later a guy in a pickup truck shows up at my shop and say's he is there to pick up the disassembled transmission. I called Jeff, and he verified that and stated that he was going to have a mechanic buddy of his look it over. A few days go by and the transmission is brought back to my shop, assembled and ready to be installed, which I have no choice but to do, because this 30+ foot motorhome is stuck in front of my shop. This really didn't set well with me, because I know in my heart that whatever sort of repair that he had done was less than what should have been done to make it right.
As if that wasn't enough from Jeff at Paradise Coach, he has the nerve to write a review of my shop that say's I tried to overcharge him. Like he is somehow a poor victim in all this. The real victim is the people that bought the motorhome, in good faith, and will likely have a real bad experience out in the middle of nowhere....
