Speedy Transmission Complaint - I think Speedy Transmission in Knoxville, TN Scammed me!
KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE -- When I took my car to Speedy Transmissions at 418 S Northshore Dr Knoxville, TN, the only thing wrong with it is that the gears between 3rd and 4th slipped a little if I was driving up a steep hill. They did a computer check and said that there was just minor work that needed to be done, told me they could finish it the next day and gave me a reasonable quote ($450). The next day we called and they said a different part was now broken and it would take another day of work and now the cost was $800 max. The day after that the transmission all of a sudden needed to be totally rebuilt ($2500 now) and it would take at least 3 more days to fix. They didn't call us but waited until the end of the day when we called them to tell us this. At this point, they will not give me my car back for less that $700 and that is with the whole thing taken apart. It's funny how the car was running fine with a minor problem before I took it to these (in my opinion) scam artists. I think that the guy either broke something when he went to fix it and doesn't want to confess, or they were planning to scam me the entire time. They actually told me when I dropped it off that there was no way the transmission needed to be rebuilt and that it was a minor problem.
