Brian, Maria, and the folks at Merced AAMCO are truly an amazing team! I'm a transfer student who moved to Merced for school. I was about half way through my first semester here with no personal mechanic and a very constrained budget. I first noticed a transmission problem about a month and a half ago: When I'd start driving, my transmission would jerk/kick back as I changed gears, it turns out the transmission range sensor on my 2000 Ford Focus was malfunctioning. Not sure where to turn, I tried calling my mechanic back home to get some advice, unfortunately he was too busy the times that I called so I had to resort to reviews and word of mouth. I decided to give Merced AAMCO a shot. I was not disappointed! The whole repair process took about a month for me, mostly due to the restrictiveness of my schedule (I was taking several classes and it was hard for me to get away from school for a day to drop my car off). After purchasing a part online in an attempt to save money, Brian graciously installed the part (I had not asked originally if they accepted customer parts). After about a day, my car started having similar problems, so I brought it back in for another look. Brian and Maria were extremely accommodating: they went out of their way to check the quality of their work, provided me with a fantastic deal that I was not expecting, and EVEN offered to give me a ride to school if I couldn't coordinate a bus route. These guys REALLY cared about my situation as a student and I could not have been more grateful! It turned out that I had a larger electrical problem in the car, however they were able to take care of the problem and replace the faulty part I had purchased in an afternoon! They even recognized a problem which I had suspected had been going on (excessive vibration and weird idling) which my original mechanic either overlooked or could not recognize. I will be taking my car back in a few days to have them take a look at this problem. As far as I'm concerned, my experience with the Merced AAMCO crew was nothing but pleasurable and professional. I am very pleased with their service and would recommend them to my new friends here in Merced! Thanks Merced AAMCO! - J.P.

This place exceeded my expectations! I need a new transmission for my 2001 Jeep and they gave me such a deal! I had shopped around knowing this was going to be pricey ..but a buddy shared this place with me. Saved a lot of dough and they said two weeks got it back earlier than thought! ! Plus they were really nice! Thanks Maria!
