NEVER NEVER take your vehicle to Transmission City in Sandy, Utah. They have cheated us out of over $2000 and after keeping the vehicle for a ridiculously extended period of time, sent it home with the same problem it came in for.So, save yourself a bundle of money and heartache.NEVER!!!!!!!
My husband and I went on a trip out of town. While we were gone my son was driving my Acadia. Reverse stopped working and it would not go over 20 mph. When I called the dealership they said that even though this was a "known problem" with these cars they would not cover it as we were 30 days past the date of the warranty. They also told me that If the dealership did the work they would be replacing the failed part with the same part, knowing it would fail again in 3-5 years. They quoted me an astronomical price for the transmission and other items and said I would have to wait 2 weeks for an appointment.I took it to Nate at Transmission City and they said they had seen this before with this model. The price quote was $1500.00 lower and they had an appointment available the following week. At the same time, Nate looked at my sons truck for free. He could have told me that it needed a new transmission as well. Nate was honest and said that with a transmission service the car would be fine. My son's 2003 Dodge Durango has been running like a dream for the last 2.5 years. The service is fantastic. They not only explain everything in detail, but are quicker and better priced than the dealership.
I had taken my car to another car repair shop and they told me that I needed motor mounts and transmission mounts replaced. They gave me a price quote. I decided to take it to Transmission City for another quote and inspection. My car had recently been in a hit and run and I wanted to check and see if the bad mounts were related to the accident. It turned out not to be related, but they saved me quite a bit of money. The first quote I received was $250 higher. The other guys were charging over the max amount of time that they could...even when it wouldn't take that long to repair. Transmission city had done a transmission replacement for me before. I am glad I went back.
I'm a huge DIYer, and after i got in over my head with a transmission repair, i was referred to AAMCO by a friend. I was immediately impressed by the clean shop and office and the manager Phil was super nice. After hearing my problem he made his recommendations and only 4 hours later they had me bailed out and back on the road. It was also a very wallet friendly! almost half of what i was expecting. I recommend these guys for any transmission needs!
