My husband and I were reffered to Aamco in Tigard by good friends of ours after they had their transmission fixed. My check engine light came on and my car wasn't running very good at all. My husband is good at a lot of things, but fixing cars isn't his strong suit, so we needed some help. Our biggest worry was how much was it going to cost us. Our friends really gave us a good feeling about taking my car to Aamco, so I called them. I spoke with the manager, Kurt, and he told us to come in right away and they would check it for free for us. Free is good! After my car was checked out, Kurt called us and explained that the reason my check engine light was on was because of a sensor that was bad on my engine and it needed to be replaced for $148 and it would be ready to pick up that afternoon. We are so glad that we listened to our friends. We go to fast place for our oil changes, and they always want us to spend a whole bunch of money on all kinds of things, but Kurt didn't do that. He recommended that we do all of our car stuff there and he would make sure that the stuff that really needed to be done got done. So now we plan on just dropping our cars off every couple of months at Aamco in Tigard so that they can do whatever stuff is really needed. This is a great place and they are the best place we have ever been with our cars. We highly recomend them. P.S. - Thanks to Adam and Cate.

I would recommend this repair facility to anyone that needs transmission repair work done. I had previously taken my 1969 Ford F250 into an AAMCO repair facility (181st and Division) to have my transmission gone through, inspected, repaired as needed, and resealed. I thought I had a full rebuild performed after paying $1500. LONG story short – they only did a reseal and in the process, AAMCO left out a component and did not sheave the main shaft correctly thereby causing failure of my transmission after about 800 miles of use. AAMCO refused to take responsibility to repair, so I took it upon myself to pull the transmission from the truck and bring it to Transmission Exchange for a full rebuild. These guys do QUALITY work. I had my transmission back in 3 days, and it works amazing. They were even kind enough to put together a list of why my transmission failed, essentially giving me what I will need to pursue retribution from the AAMCO repair facility. The unfortunate part about the auto repair business is groups like the AAMCO I worked with give the industry a bad name. Thankfully business’s like Transmission exchange are the kind that you would go back to over and over again due to their professional, quality, good customer service repairs. Thanks Transmission Exchange!!
I broke down on a weekend and this was the only place that would answer the phone, after hours much less. That says a lot right there in knowing their concern for the customer. The gentleman I spoke with was very understanding and even helped arrange a rental for me! After having my superduty towed in I anxiously awaited that dreaded phone call Monday morning. Around 10am I answered my cell expecting a $3800 rebuild estimate (knowing what I've heard about my trucks) and to my surprise I was quoted $45! WAIT, WHAT?! Yeah, turns out that after my run at Sand Lake I had some water caught up in the plug thingy where my wires go into the tranny. This guy at the shop would rather have a customer for life than a one time affair and that just what I am now, a customer for life. I mean I really would not have known better but now I know these guys are gonna be straight up with me. THAT'S PRICELESS!
