AAMCO Transmissions, Inc. Complaint - Avoid AAMCO at 7900 Hwy 6 Houston, Texas
TEXAS -- The guy at AAMCO will say anything to get your bussiness offer a free towing, offer payments plans and keep you car until you can pay all the money, and will even give a semi estimate after they do the "FREE" diagnostic. But he ommits many details like Towing is 150.00 dollars if and over 500.00 for just looking inside your transmission if you decide not to do the repair with them. They also do not tell you they will not only charge you for labor, opening the transmission but only have to options of payments. One is over 2,500.00 for a 12,000 mile warranty regarless the problem in the transmission and the other over 3,000.00 for 36,000 miles. They excuse this prices because no matter what is wrong with your transmission they have to take it apart and replace parts even if they do not know which ones. In my case they said it was the torque. After THE GUY gave me the estimate I was angry but I choose to allow them repair the car instead of just giving them 600.oo. Do not make the same mistake as me. First they do not have payment plans, they will refer your information to loan companies to make a car repair loan and they will charge you storage if you refused to make a loan or can not make a payment after a month. I paid my car repair before that but the transmission sounds awful and the speedmeter and odometer are not working. I took it 15 days later because I knew after my experience I could not expect anything better from them. So, The GUY had bad attitude, trated me like I was crazy and ask me to leave the place after I refused to pay 95.00 dollars for the replacement of a VSS sensor that connects the speedmeter and odometer. THe VSS sensor is connected to the transmission by the way was working fine before they repair the car. Of course I got all kind of excuses for HIM like it was an external problem, denied that could be a connection problem when they install the transmission after repair, also HE said that may malfunction after I took the car out of the place but has same mileage as the one recorded on the receipt. DO NOT TAKE YOUR CAR TO AAMCO.
