I had the worst experience there, I took my car to get the transmission done. They charged me $2,500 for a used one. It went bad before the warranty expired and they want to charge me another $2,500.....stay away from that place,they are rip-offs!!!!Share Review

I brought my car in here under warranty work from another aamco. Two months later they told me to tow my car off their property after they had screwed up the electrical system and couldn't even get it started anymore. Do yourself a favor. Stay away from this place.
my husband and i also had an extremely bad experience with aamco also. our 94 ford taurus needed a new torque converter and was making this awful noise and not shifting well. we took it in and it took them almost a week to diagnose the problem and give us an estimate.they wanted to charge us $4000 and told us it needed basically a whole new transmission. so we went for it but after we picked up our car it was making the same exact noise and still shifting rough. we took the car back 3...view more more times and nothing. also they they told us that our mechanic broke our cv axle and they wanted to charge us to fix it but we had just put new cv axles on both sides but we thought they knew what they were doing so we took it back to our mechanic but when they took the cv axle off it was fine and we had to pay them for nothing so i called aamco to complain to them and they were so rude. they never fixed our problem after charging us so much money and the last time we took the car in for the same problem still after we supposedly had gotten a brand new tranny they left part of our air filter out and when we took the car back they tried to act like we were crazy and didnt know what we were talking about until they came out and looked at the big gaping hole in our engine and then they were like oh we are so sorry here is your air filter they routinely charge customers $3000 dollars but i believe they take broken transmission parts off of other cars and show them to you and pretend that they came from your car so they can convince you that you need all this work done. they are really bad and their customer service sucks so please dont waste your time or your money and look elsewhere for a reliable mechanic they are out there if you look.view lessShare Review
WARNING! Aamco's are independently owned so my review is only about the Aamco in Bear not too far from the 13/40 split.
They are overpriced and do shoddy work that needs redone by someone who knows what they are doing. TOTAL SCAM ARTISTS They have an F rating with the Better business Bureau. You have been warned!.
Don't go to these guys unless you have a 85 Chevy that doesn't have complex parts to it. My car didn't run exactly top notch after getting my clutch from there. After following up with them about it, they then suggested more parts and labor; mind you, the engine wasn't running poorly before I took it to them. The cost difference for the clutch was $200 cheaper than the dealership, which seemed pretty awesome at the time. I'm now paying the price for saving that $200 with paying for fi...view morexes for work they didn't do. Like completely leaving a part off my car!

In May of 2013, I brought our 2003 Saab to Aamco Transmissions in Whitehall PA because the transmission was malfunctioning. Aamco(of Whitehall PA) diagnosed the problem and replaced the transmission with a 6 month/6,000 mile warranty(cost ~$1900+). In September 2013, the transmission again began to malfunction with approximately 88,000 miles and still under warranty. I had to take the car to Aamco in Easton because the Whitehall Aamco was out of business. I was told that although the t...view moreransmission was still under warranty, the problem was an output speed sensor that was not covered under the warranty. I agreed to repair and $500+ later the car seemed to be driving fine. In November 2013, I again "lost" the lower gears and it cost me another $250.
On Saturday, February 1st 2014,on my way to work, the transmission completely failed . I called/emailed Andrew at Aamco of Easton and he had the car towed to Easton on Sunday February,2nd 2014
I was then informed that the transmission that Aamco installed in May of 2013(9 months ago) was faulty and that it would cost me $4900 to fix correctly.
Basically, they continued to put bandages on a defective transmission until the warranty expired. They have mislead me since May of 2013, when they first installed a faulty transmission.view less
