I have a 2006 Mercury Mariner which had to have a rebuilt transmission due to bearing failure in 2014, mileage 74,056 at a cost of $2,368.Now 2017 the same problem although this time we were charged $1,500, mileage 102,300. After 28,000 the same bearing is bad again? Are the parts they are using junk and should I expect another failure in 25,000 miles? I would expect a rebuilt transmission to last more than 28,000 miles.
This is my 3rd clutch being replaced in 3 years. The first one had a defect from the factory. The second one started to go after 3 years/35,000 miles although I've been driving sticks for over 20 years and have never had to replace one before. This time they said the trans also had to be replaced. I ok'd a charge for just under a $1000. They charged my card twice, over drafting me. I had to get my bank involved to get the money back. 3 days later I get a call from the office person telling me "we don't store cars". To say this was handled poorly is an understatement.
I took my 2005 Saturn to American Transmissions, they were professional and fixed my car for $300 less than I was quoted elsewhere. Thanks for the prompt repairs.
Had my car in American transmissions looking for a front end noise recently. Guys called me and told me one thing was wrong, and that it would be $300. Car stayed overnight, I paid and picked it up the next day and drove home to find that the noise is still there, and has not gotten any quieter at all. Complete misdiagnosis. So I called him the next day and told him about it and he said I should bring it in and he'll take a look, so I dropped the car off at about noon the next day and received no call and that's when I decided to stop by and see what's going on. Upon arrival I found that they had not done anything to my car but drive it 40 miles and leave it with absolutely no gas. Apparently they didn't have time to look for the problem. The mechanic then informed me that these cars "just rattle" and that they're "throw away cars". I would not recommend this place to anyone, bad business, bad mechanic, no offer to help pay. Complete wast of time and money on my part. Will never return, i'd rather start fresh and pay someone deserving of my money for a proper diagnosis.
AMERICAN TRANSMISSIONS TOOK VERY GOOD CARE OF ME I worried about taking my car in to be repaired and being a women and not very knowledgeable about car repairers I thought I might be taken advantage of. Well to my surprise this establishment is owned by a women.They took me in the back and showed me everything and explained everything to me so I could understand it.Transmission repairs are expensive and I got mine repaired for $800.00 dollars less than the dealership wanted and. I was given a very good warranty .I found that the people were very honest and straight forward with me. I will never take any cars anywhere else and have recommended them to all family and Friends.
