A1 Transmission in Baldwin, NY Informative - Transmission Night Mare in Long Island
BALDWIN, NEW YORK -- I had work done at All Transmission Sunrise Hwy two years ago on my Izuzu Trooper and even though they installed a rebuilt transmission there were some problems that occured over time. I finally noticed a large leak on my transmission and decided to take it to A 1 Transmission about 200 yard down the street. The owner Mr. G. made his company sound so go and the company down the stree sound bad. He put my car up and showed me where the leak is and there I left it. He called me later stating that to fix the leak it would cost 1795.00. He named all the parts that would fix it. When my wife came to pick the car up a few days later, she complained to me that she could not get the key out of the ignition. I came to take a look at it and called Mr. G. who tried to make it seem like it was our fault that the key would not come out of the ignition when infact the Isuzu dealer said that he did not adjust something on the transmission correctly causing the key to get stuck but not only did it get stuck but Mr. G bent the Key in the igniton and damaged the inside. I immediately replaced the ignition myself and then drove the vehicle. I noticed that now the transmission was slipping and leaking just as bad as when I took it in. I took it to the Isuzu dealer who kept it for 24 hours and found that Mr. G's shop damaged the transimission mount, did not replace the parts they stated causing transmission fluid to leak into my transfer case and mix with the fluid there and the rear main seal is leaking badly. I took it back to Mr. G who only wanted to fix the leak but was upset with me for being upset with him. Long story short, I will let you know how the case goes in court because that is where we are going very soon. What he did nor realize was that my wife works for a lawfirm and so do I.
Just to add... the post below from A1 Transmissions is a bunch of bull. You are supposed to be a professional, we brought the car to you to fix, your job was to fix it and you made matters worst and damaged the ignition. I hope you lose customers. You thief.
Oh and by the way, it settled out out of court for 500. So there must have been some wrong doing there.
