Disingenuous, deceitful, dishonest, bait & switch, extortion.

We were having transmission problem on a Ford F250 pickup. The truck repair outfit we use (in Dilley) recommended a Ford factory rebuilt transmission with a 36 month, unlimited mileage warranty at an installed price of $2900.

My stepson suggested we have AAMCO take a look at it so he contacted Matt at the AAMCO located at 2339 NW Loop 410, San Antonio. When my stepson first spoke to Matt he mentioned the $2900 price from the first shop. In the following email exchange on June 26th Matt made the following offers and suggested the repair could be as low as $1100.

"$1100 to $2900 Depending on parts we need to be replaced..."

"I'll tow it to here but not both ways thats getting to be alot now. to here at my shop from where its at it will be free and i will set up to get towed back for you and we can then ask how much it will be but they will give you my rates."

"So we can do our Free Multi point inspection check so we can find out the best possible route to get your vehicle back on the road..."

Matt never mentioned any charges for either towing or a multipoint inspection in any email on on the telephone.

Matt at Aamco said his price to rebuild the transmission would be the same as a Ford factory rebuild at $2900 but could or would not meet the 36 month unlimited mileage. Therefore I arranged to tow the truck back to Dilley.

It was then that Matt refused to release my truck and said I owed him $689. $200 for towing and $489 for diagnosing the transmission. I showed Matt his emails offering free towing and multi point inspection. He refused to remove the $489 inspection charge.

We paid the extortion charge of $489 and after Matt stalled for 4 days He released the truck.

I am really in AWWWEEE with the outstanding work and friendlyness of the staff at Aamco and Matt. I just moved here to San Antonio and was at the mall when my car just did not wanna shift gears. I dont have any friends or family here and didnt know what i was gonna do. I called my uncle and he suggested i call a nerby Aamco so i googled the nearest location .. I called them and they towed in my vehicle and even picked me up and took me home. I had my car fixed within the week and they even picked me up . These people are just the greatest i recommend them to everyone so i just couldnt believe someone would say different..

I took a car to them to repair the transmiision. What I liked was they did not automatically tell me I needed a whole new transmission. they were very friendly, professional, and helpful. I towed my car there but did not have a way back to pick up the car--they came and picked me up and drove me back to get my car. They then told me to bring it back in ten days so they coud verify all was still runng good. When I took it back they were again very friendly and professional. Great service.

I was having trouble with my 2004 Chevy Tahoe not shifting gears so I had taken my vehicle to a local shop that was charging me an accessive amount of money.I alled this location and talked to Matt. He towed in my vehicle in at no cost corrected the problem with my transmission issues at a way lesser amount than the other shop and also gave me alot better warranty.Thanks Guyz for the Awesome Service!!!

I took my 06 ford fusion to this location because AAMCOs website says TRUST YOUR CAR WILL BE FIXED RIGHT THE FIRST TIME what a lie they never told me how much it would cost to pull my transmission apart untill after it was done Matt said if you dont want us to fix it then its gonna cost almost $3000 for us to put it back together and it probablly wont run and you will need to get it towed someplace else. So I was left with no other option but to let them fix it. After all the work was done they said $5300 this is way to high from what other aamcos have told me. 4 days after picking up my FIXED car they wrench light came on then the check engine light came on and it would jerk the whole car when i would put it in reverse and between 1 and 2 rpms I took it back the next day Cynthia said we need to keep it I said for how many days she said not days just 1 day I dont have another car im a server at Cracker Barrel and live 15 miles from my work they didnt have a car I could use nor did they offer to pay for a rental 1 week later I got my car back and on my way to work on the 4th day of having it back guess what the wrench light came on AGAIN and the check engine light came on AGAIN and everything else that happened the first time I got it back. I called Matt today and told him about it and he didnt have anything to say. I might lose my job over this and im out $5300 please dont take your car here for any reason unless your rich and dont care what the cost is RIPPED OFF- THAMISHIA RODRIGUEZ

Outstanding no doubt! My unwarrantied SUV was initially taken to a local dealership who wanted to perform transmission repair on my auto and only offer a 90 day warranty. I was able to get my auto repaired by AAMCO for less, towed free from dealership, quick service turnaround, and obtained a longer warranty...18 months or 18,000 miles. Lesson learned here for sure...where to go and where not to go for honest transmission repairs. It seems those who can only offer a short warranty...can't honestly stand by their work. AAMCO received my car late Tuesday...rebuilt my transmission and my auto was out by Saturday. Big thanks to Matt and crew for their great work. It's great to know that AAMCO offers other auto repair services as well. I certainly will be back and send others your way. Again thanks.

The worst experience ever. I took a 2006 elantra because my battery was getting drain within 20 to 30 after turning it off. They did a free diagnosis and said it was the battery. I ask them if they were sure that was all. They said yes but we'll do more test for $180.00 +the battery. I just want it the problem solve. I left the car and they said will call you they later today of course they never did. I call them and they said to leave the car longer to check it tomorrow morning. When I went to pick it up they said it was ready and ask what was done to it. They said it was wire under hardnest under the battery. I told them to show me and they never did. I did not believe them because it didn't look like they did anything. First of all the battery cables werer loose and told them to please get them tight. I took off and the radio would not come on or the interior lights. They check it again and said it was the way my sound system was hook up. Thay said the person who did it did not know what it was doing. I was mad because the person who did that is a very close friend of mine. He's one of the best in sound systems. I just took off after they charge me $ 315.00 and I call my friend who install sound system. He told me to check all the fuses and he was right, as soon as I got home I check the fuses and on was blown. In conclusion I paid $315.00 to have battery install.

My transmision broke in 2007, I went to Aamco because they specialized in Transmissions, they ""fixed"" my transmission and charged me $1900 for a re-build and gave me a 3 year warrenty. I got my car back and it just didn't seem right, it was loud and i could feel it pulling when i drove it, I took the car back and they said there was nothing wrong, so a year goes by and my transmission goes out again completely, I take it back to Aamco (3 year warrenty) and it seems whatever is wrong just so happens to not be covered in the warrenty. So I pay another $1900 and this time I only get a 12 month warrenty for a re-build and the car still drives like crap, Ive taken it back many times to have it checked and they keep it for over a week and give me my car back just the same, saying nothings wrong with it, although anyone can hear it and feel the pull. So I take my car and warrenty to another Aamco and show them my warrenties and they ask me why I paid the second time?!!! They said I should have never had to pay again because of the warrenty!!! So I call this San Antonio store which is now under new mangement, and I'm asking the manager why this happened, and all he does is talk over me and yell at me and makes me feel stupid.He tells me I paid for something but its not on the reciept, how can they charge you for something and not put it on the reciept? He offered to write it on my reciept!! Have you ever heard of something soo dumb!!?? I feel like I got taken advantage of and very poorly mistreated! Your better off to go to a little independant shop and get your car worked on there!! Dont shop AAMCO

These guys are the best. Been to some of these other so called "Transmission Shops" where they say they know what they are doing but don't have any tools or brains to diagnose a simple problem. These guys at AAMCO have the tools and knowledge to repair any transmission in any vehicle. I been dealing with them a long time and they always do a great job. I would not trust my vehicle with anyone else.

They ripped me off!! i could not believe it because they had such great reviews. First they said my whole transmission needed to be replaced, and then when i wanted a second opinion, they did not want to let me go. Turns out it was an electrical problem. If you want to throw money away, go here

My older car (I love it and can't part with it!) was making a lot of noise especially when turning, and I knew the car needed something related to steering. I took it to a different shop and they wanted to charge me over 1200 for the replacement of the rack and pinion. This shop totally worked with me in terms of trying to help me find the part at the fairest price and charged me half of the cost. I can't tell you how good this makes me feel to go to a mechanic and not feel ripped off when it all was over!
