AAMCO Transmissions, Inc. Complaint - Fraudulent Practices
BRONX, NEW YORK -- I was lured with the hopes of receiving a free estimate from aamco transmissions bronx ny location.
After they take your car they try and take your business by force. They call you and request your date of birth so they can check your car. They do not disclose any charges and since your under the impression that your receiving a free estimate you won't question it. They also won't give you a receit because its a free estimate.
After receiving an estimate of 2,500 to rebuild a transmission and you decide to go somewhere else they force you to pay $600.00. When you question them about their deceitful actions they lie and tell you, we offered you a free eds diagnostic that cost $39.99.
For someone like myself who knows about cars and I also had my car fix by many well known repair shops and never had a problem and when an owner of a franchise lies to you the best thing for you to do is not give them your business.
Go to ripoff.Com and see the numerous complaints this franchise is proudly accumulating. Their main aamco headquarters does not care. After complaining and reporting individually owned franchises are practicing bait and switch and using fraudulent business practices they don't even bother to call customers back. Aamco headquarters phone system ask you to enter your zip code and they will re direct you back to the aamco that defrauded you. This is ludicris.
The best way to combat fraud is for consumers to be aware. If you or a family member is a motorist quickly tell them don't use aamco transmissions. Email friends and tell them to email others. If I did my homework by checking online about a company I probably would have not been defrauded by these people.
This company is now offering to do other repairs to cars.
Many small shops repair transmissions. I got a rebuilt transmission from a small shop for $700.00 No tax. Its been over eight months now and I still don't have a problem. I also got a 6 month warranti. Imagine how much I was going to pay if I allowed aamco transmission to repair my transmission at 2,599.00 Plus tax and god only know how much other hidden fee they would have added.
