I had my transmission rebuilt here over a year ago, I intended to write a review at the time but creating a yp.com login was a pain!! So sorry for the delay :-) When the transmission went on my car I was horrified. I researched the problem and found that it was a very common failure in my make and model, and most owners had to replace the transmission costing between $3000 - $4000. Given I still had over a year worth of payments left, I was NOT willing to accept this financial burden. I researched reviews, and felt most comfortable with Affordable Transmissions. The only negative reviews seemed written by people I couldn't really relate to (one was whining that the office was dirty... who cares? I wouldn't trust a CLEAN mechanic!!). I was quoted $1700 for a rebuilt transmission. They assured me that a rebuilt transmission would serve as well for my purposes as a brand new, and this was an acceptable risk given the huge savings. The work was done quickly, and the owner was very generous about being flexible with me in repaying him. I didn't have the money at first, so he ended up having to store my car for three weeks while I got it together. I called him with updates constantly, he seemed to genuinely not mind keeping it for me! The car has not given me problems since!! I was very concerned that this would be a case of getting a few months out of it before having to replace the transmission altogether, but this wasn't the case. I would recommend anyone to take their car here for a transmission issue! THANKS GUYS!!!

I was haveing a few problems with my f150 pu truck, transmission, coils, and missfiring plugs. Call John for the first time and explained the problems and right off the bat he knew what was wrong with my truck. i had called a few other places b-4 him and they all said drop it off for an estimate and the deposit will go to the repairs if i had work done and the ball park estimates were high. when i called John gave me an estimate on the phone when i called him. and his prices were in my price range and a lot less than the other other other ones. Well i took my truck in he did the repairs, my truck was done when he said it would be done, except for my dipstick (it had holes in it where the bracket broke it was rusted thru) it was broken b-4 i took it to him. but he replaced it for no charge. Same price he quoted on phone just to do the transmission. Nice of him to do that, he could have charge me but didn't. I would recomende this shop to anyone needing work done, i my self am a retired mechanic and some things i don't want to on the ground at home. he has all of my business and any refferal i can send his way, Affordable, honest, dependable his business is. he has great mechanics that know their stuff GREAT SERVICE!!. John @ Affordable transmissions & repairs, Thanks again Mike

I took my 2005 4runner to the AAMCO on 6726 Frankford Ave. My vehicle had a check engine light on for 4months after spending $900 at other shops my check engine light was still on. I told the manager Dion that I was at my last straw spending money with no results. He said don't worry give us a chance to fix it I did and his mechanics told him that I needed to have a smoke test done for further diagnosis I greed I already spent $900 in repairs at other shops so why not spend $59.95 for the test. After the test they told me there was a small vacuum hose broken and that made my light stay out GOOD JOB. I found a repair shop for life thanks AAMCO
I thought that I needed a transmission, because everytime I would try to accelerate, my car wasn't moving as fast as it should. I went to Pep boys, to see what the problem was. I was told I needed a new transmission, and that it would cost around $3200. I decided to get a 2nd opinion, and called Aamco, and spoke to Mr. Deon, and he said I could bring my car in for a free diagnostic check. So, I did, and long and behold, All I needed was transmission fluid. Wow, I just saved $3000. If you want honest people working on your vehicle, I would suggest these guys. Thanks Team Aamco.

I was in the shop last week getting my car fixed and found the office to be immaculate. The shop employees were very kind to me and accomadating. My car was taken to two previous shops before this one with no help, just a bunch of money thrown into the car and parts I did not need. All Affordable were honest and kind from the start. My car was finally fixed, and at a great price. I have since told all of my friends and family to use this shop. I found not one bit of service to be disappointing. It was fast, honest, and most of all affordable! Thanks to the owner and his team!
The Aamco in Roxborough next to the fire station on Ridge avenue , has offered THEE best service I have ever received for my car. The staff is hardworking, knowledgable, friendly, and service focused. The Manager is hardworking, extremely kind and accommodating. The service there blows me away... This is the third time I needed service on my car, for my own mishaps while driving... I'm not going anywhere else going forward. If i have to spend the money to keep my car in order, this is where ill spend it. What you get here is untouchable. Period.
I Had my transmission rebuilt at AAMCO on Frankford Ave. I read there reviews but still was not sure about what I read. After going there I found that the reviews are not wrong Dion the manager is a real people's person and he gives no pressure to you about getting the work done. I did get my transmission done there because I felt confutable with with him and the workers. It's never a good feeling to pay money for a transmission but when you feel that you received what you have paid for with a great warranty it makes you feel much better.
I took my 2003 yukon to a independent shop they tried to sell me a transmission for about $2000.00 but i wanted a second opinion i called the manager Dion who was very nice on the phone and very professional when i got there the mechanics were very nice as well. The manager informed me that i didn't need a transmission all i need was a tune up. i authorized the repairs and my truck runs great they saved me about $1500.00 thanks AAMCO on Frankford Ave. I will go there for all my mechanical work from now on ;-)
The best total car service I've ever been to! They're very professional, quick, and efficient. The manager tries to accommodate you with updates about your cars progress, explaining the problem with your car in full detail so you don't walk away confused, and always attending to the customer needs putting them first. The staff are professional car specialists. I would recommend this location to anybody and have done it before with a few friends I know and they now use aamco as their main car care service.
