My 2005 Mazda 6 was having problems with the transmission. It wouldn't shift beyond second gear and I took it to a shop in Lynchburg and they did a crap job. I then took it to Aamco and they did an incredible job. George, the owner is a great guy that genuinely cares for his customers and made sure I had the best experience. They diagnosed the problem with the transmission and had it fixed in about a week. In my opinion they are the most knowledgable and experienced repair shop in the area. I recommend it all the way.
Took my car in to have the shifter linkage adjusted.My car would get stuck between park and reverse and make a clicking noise while backing up. The owner George gave me excuse after excuse everytime i called for a progress report on my car.He first told me his lead technician was ill and he was backed up. Week two that my car was there he was just catching up from his technician being ill from a spider bite. Week three i told him i wanted my car back from a "simple" fix and he was at first refusing to give me my car until i told him I'd get my attorney involved.He then changed his tone and told me he'd leave my car on his lift so he could show me what he did and why he couldn't fix my car and why he hadn't.Told me he needed special wrench and that they adjusted my linkage cable to get park and reverse to work properly. However, once in my car and on my way to a different shop i noticed my 1st gear was gone and overdrive was now not working. my car came out worse than when it went in.
Excellent service! Very knowledgeable, affordable and professional. We highly recommend them for and transmission needs.
I lived in Europe, Africa and North America. This is the worse customer experience I ever had, not to say the most expensive horror story too. I am putting all the paper work together to open a lawsuit but I want to give the Corporate a chance to do things right. To make the horror story short… I had the transmission rebuilt at the Lynchburg, VA, AAMCO center in August 2014, on my recently bought 2005 Ford Freestar. Only after few days the transmission had problems downshifting from the 4th to the 3rd gear. It was shaking really bad instead of downshifting and when it would eventually do downshift … it would be a very hard violent one. Covered by a 12 months warranty I took it back next day and they told me that it’s not the transmission is the engine that is misfiring and that needs a tune-up, but left us proudly thinking that we have a very special engine that is misfiring only in the 4th gear :) . Few months down the road when I was able finally to find $300 to have a tune-up done the mechanic,(another shop) to my surprise, showed me the sparkplugs and the wires, ignition coil, etc and he told me that this car had a tune-up done not long ago. Also no misfiring codes on the computer. I took it back to AAMCO and talked to the owner George who to my increasing surprise keep telling saying the same story that the engine is misfiring. I suggested I take the car to the dealership for a diagnostic. He didn’t like that idea, he got upset and said he is “done talking to me” and he opened the door of his office.
