How is my original post gone? I gave them a 1 and it is now showing a 5 with with Aamco denying that I was a customer. This is a lie. My very negative experience with them has been years ago so obviously it still bothers me. I think I can produce the attorney letters that were wriiten to me to buzz off.
AMMCO replaced my transmission and had to replace it again about 3 weeks later. After about 3 weeks I began having loud popping noises on my Titan truck. I took it back to AMMCO and they put it on the lift and found my transmission leaking. After 3 hour wait and me having to purchase the hydraulic hose the fixed the leak but they said my front transfer case needed to be rebuilt at 900 to 1100 dollars. I couldn't afford that so another mechanic I know sent me to Miller Transmission. Tony Miller and shop manager Steve put my truck on the lift and told me what they were calling front transfer case was actually front differential. They couldn't find anything wrong on the lift so Steve and Tony pulled my truck back off the lift and drove the truck slightly forward and backward while Tony felt under the truck until he found the problem. AMMCO had removed the front cross member and only tightened the bolts hand tight when they reinstalled it. Tony said they didn't even need to remove it. Steve tightened the bolts and the loud popping noise stopped. Tony wouldn't even let me pay him for his time and trouble. He also said if AMMCO had installed the correct sized external transmission oil cooler my truck would not have overheated. I wished all people were that considerate and kind. He saved me a lot of money. Tony Hardin
First, prior to getting into my review I want to indicate that Millers has upheld their contractual obligation in regards to the warranty paperwork. Below is in my opinion concerning whether or not I would utilize them again based on my experience.I had a completely rebuilt transmission put in my 2007 Hummer H3 in March 2014. The transmission just went out again this past Friday, Aug 14th 2015. The warranty provided by Miller’s was for 12 months or 12,000 miles which ever came first. It was outside the warranty by about 5 months and 26,000 miles (Total of 38,000 miles on the rebuilt transmission). The owner Tony said that the he felt that this was all that the transmission he installed should be expected to do as it went 2 times the warranty coverage in miles. He did not want to accept any responsibility as there could have been other factors contributing the transmission going out and was not willing to take any ownership in the problem since I was unhappy with the workmanship. I personally would not recommend this shop to anyone unless you are willing to pay about $1,500 per 18 months or every 36,000 miles for a new transmission. Maybe my expectations are too high but I don’t think so.Obviously I will be taking the H3 to another transmission shop for repairs and will be happy to communicate what was found to be the main cause. If there were extenuating circumstances that would have caused the transmissions failure I will repost them to this review for fairness to Miller’s.
Please read all of review! I had millers put a transmission cooler on my truck. After test driving the truck I noticed that the transmission fluid temperature did not change much. I assumed that they must have installed it incorrectly. However, after a few phone calls, I realized that the thermal bypass valve I made sure they installed was the culprit. The work they did was phenomenal and at a very reasonable price. I really appreciate Tony's patience and I will never go, nor will I advise, anyone to ever take their vehicle anywhere else!
