AAMCO Transmissions, Inc. Complaint - Aamco is a ripoff - transmission rebuild
TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA -- Had my vehicle towed to Aamco in Titusville Fl. They wanted 2700.00 to rebuild transmission. Had it done and didn't get 25 miles out of town an hour later(had been on trip when incident occurred and so still had to complete my trip home)when all the same bells and whistles came back that my transmission needed to checked, my ABS wasn't working, etc. Got to Jacksonville and the transmission overheated warning came on so I stopped at the Aamco in Jacksonville. They confirmed the work had to be redone and that it would take a few days. I wasn't prepared to camp out in Jacksonville after being camped out for 15 days in Titusville so I declined and made it home.
I don't have an Aamco dealer in my town, but I was headed to Ft Lauderdale the next week and took it in there. Dealer checked it out and gave me the same report the Jacksonville dealer had given me, but then refused to take it in. My wife and I had rented a car to get around in Ft Lauderdale and so we were prepared to leave it all week. Guy just said he couldn't take it in.
On way back from Ft Lauderdale, now 3 weeks after the initial repair, transmission seals blew again and hot fluid set fire under vehicle. Little town of Hartwell Ga had to send volunteer fire department out on rural SR77 to extinguish blaze. Thanks Aamco.
