I was told by a garage that it would cost about $2000 for a new transmission. I called AAA for a price and they told me about &1200 over the phone. I told them to tow my van and check it out and call me before any work is done. They said no problem, come in tomorrow about 11:00 and we'll let you know what's wrong. When I got there the transmission was out of my van and on a table. The manager took me to the back to look at it and then back to his office. He told me it would cost $2200 to rebuild the transmission. I told him the van wasn't even worth that much. He said it would cost 500 to put the transmission back in my van still broken, or I could have it towed. I went ahead and told them to fix the transmission. It's been a year now and It is running OK, but I have always felt a slip in the transmission when it changes in every gear. I've heard other people say this place pulled their transmission out without their permission, also. So be aware, they will pull your transmission out before you give them permission to do any work.

We had been told by another garage we needed a transmission rebuild, but they couldn't be sure until they had removed the old unit and torn it down (for $650 labor). They said the rebuild would be 1700-2300 dollars. They told us if we couldn't afford it at that point, they would put the parts in the trunk and we could have it towed. I took a chance, and called AAA Transmissions of America, in Danville, VA. The owner seemed to know what he was talking about, and told us the towing was free from Martinsville to Danville. He also said usually it was 1300-1500 dollars to rebuild a transmission. I was overjoyed! What a savings over the 1700-2300 quoted in Martinsville! We had it towed, and he took myself and my wife's phone numbers. He called us both, and on conference call, said it needed to be rebuilt, and it would be 1465.00. He asked us to come to the shop to see what he was talking about. Once we got there, he took us into the back, where our transmission layed in about a hundred parts spread out on a table. He showed us a bunch of parts, claimed they were bad, and then informed us the rebuild would be $2,200.00! We were stuck. The transmission was ruined from the teardown. We allowed him to rebuild the unit. I drove it back to Martinsville, and it seemed to be ok. When I got up the next morning to take it to work, I noticed a HUGE pool of transmission fluid in the driveway. I limped it back to this guy, and he tried to make it sound like he did me a favor by fixing the leak (it was a transmission coolant line!) for no charge. He tried to tell me it was a non-warranty repair! Bottom line...this guy seems to be a religious, caring garage owner. Truth is...he's no different than a common thief. He suckers folks in under the ruse that he has cheap prices, then once he gets his hands on your vehicle...it's over. As far as the religious act goes...that will be settled at another time. I will tell everyone that I come into contact with (I'm in sales, and meet hundreds of customers a month) to stay away from this guy, and this company, because somewhere, corporate management has failed.

My review is almost a copy of the previous two reviews....same story. My regular mechanic told me that I needed the pressure sensor control (valve leading to the transmission) fixed. He told me the cost would be around $500. When we went to AAA Transmission of America he said, "your car has had a heart attack". The manager proceded to go through all this stuff that was "wrong" with the car and just like the other review walked us back to the transmission that was already torn apart, blah, blah, blah. (as if I knew what I was looking at) They even tried to persuade us to leave our car there and one of the workers would drive us home since the car was in terrible shape. ( I already knew from my regular mechanic (whom I trust) what was wrong and that the car was not in terrible shape, but they wanted to put a whole new transmission in the car with the beginning quote of $1495. They also reminded us many times that if there was something else wrong that price would increase. They continued to use their sales pitch of their $50,000 computer that can read my car like a book and how they work on all the FBI cars in the area....like I care, just fix my car! They also came up with phony problems like my transmission fluid was scorched and that my car was running at 40% capacity. I was so unimpressed with the manager and the whole place. I did more research on my problem with my mechanic and I ended up getting the car fixed at the Chevrolet dealership for $384.00. That's a far cry from the new transmission and $1500 or more later. (the dealership also checked these other phony problems and yes, they didn't exist) Don't go here. Pay attention to these reviews and just trust them. Years ago we may have fallen for this sales pitch. The manager acted religious and caring, yet is ready to take your money (even if he has to drive you home so you would leave your car there) in a second.

My car stopped going forward, worked only in reverse. We were told by the dealership that it needed a new transmission. My husband and I went to AAA Transmission. The owner made "religious" connotations, as if to suggest he was a man of integrity. He said he would check it out and give us an estimate. We had to return for the estimate, instead of just giving us one over the phone. The owner took us to the back, and there were pieces of my transmission scrolled all over a table, nuts, bolts, and all. He began to explain to us what the problem was, as if he were speaking in unknown tongues. We had to go in to the office and he estimated at nearly $2,000.00. Well, we thought that was a bit steep, but we knew I needed a new transmission. Well, we go to pick the car up, and find that we had to pay for a rebuilt transmission, not a new one. After about a week, the car began to jerk when I drove uphill. I go back and two of his employees ride in the back to see if they felt it, which they did, and they told the owner it was nothing. I go back two weeks later, and they kept the car this time, but the jerk never went away. After a year and a half, my son and I are on our way home, at night, and the car rolled back. The transmission had failed. I went back to AAA, and the owner told me the warranty expired after a year, but that he would be happy to re do it. We went to Aamoco Transmission and got it professionally repaired for much less....oh, and no jerking, now!!! There were reported to the BBB.
