STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!

For me, going to AAMCO Transmission in Miramar was A MISTAKE THAT COST ME 7000$ !!!

If you dont want to find yourself in a similar situation, stay away from these transmission masters.

Last August I was considering buying a used Ford Focus but I suspected that there was a problem with the transmission because it engaged a bit slowly. I told the owner I wanted to have it checked. The car owner (Raul Reyes, who I now suspect to be a curbstoner, btw) told me that it was fine. He added that he was so sure that car was in good condition that he was ready to pay for any problem I would have found in the transmission or engine. I took it to Sears and they told me that the transmission could have a problem but, since they dont do transmissions, they suggested having it checked elsewhere.

I took the car here, at AAMCO Transmission in Miramar, and I explained the situation to the owner of the car shop, KEN KATCHO. He had the car checked by what he called his transmission masters, who test drive the car, looked at the transmission, and checked for codes. In the end Ken told me (and wrote down) that the transmission had no problem and that I should have my engine checked. I checked the emissions and they were fine.

I bought the car, I drove it for 6 months, and sure enough the problem with the transmission worsened. I went back to AAMCO and the guy now in charge, KYLE WALTER, told me that I was right: the transmission had a rough engagement. My estimate was anything between 850 and 5000 $... I told them to go head and finally, they replaced the transmission for three grants.
In conclusion, for THEIR diagnostic mistake (1) I bought the wrong car, (2) I lost the chance to have it fixed by the previous owner, and (3) I spent three grants to have it fixed. Total: more than 7000$.

Now all my savings are gone because of this lemon and the next time I, or my family, will face any trouble, we will be broke. How am I supposed to pay an attorney to get my money back?

I said I wanted to talk to the manager, Ken, who, of course, in a week never called me back. I HAD to pay to get my car back and go to work and sure enough!-- the engine light went on. Sure enough, according to them, this had nothing to do with changing the transmission! They asked me for other 200$ to fix it

In conclusion, they are INCOMPETENT, PRICY, AND, for me, DISHONEST. If Ken was an honest person, he would have assumed his responsibility and offered a deal. Instead he didnt even bother to talk to me

PS: Be advised that whatever the estimate you agree to pay, in the end it will be always more than that. Also, I am pretty sure that they favored other clients at my expenses so that I had to wait for an extra day to have it fixed. In fact, when I asked to Kyle if the people who brought the car after me had it done before, he did not answer my question.
