I do not recommend this business. After having the transmission rebuilt on my car it has failed three times and each time it takes weeks before my car is "ready." After being worked on for the first time I discovered they had overfilled the transmission fluid by 2 quarts. They said that was fine and would not hurt the transmission. During a test drive when it was supposedly fixed and ready to be picked up it for the second time it was shuddering so bad I had to leave it again. They admitted to using a substitute part that did not fit correctly and knew the car was not running properly but called and said it was fixed and ready. The day after being being picked up for the third time it started shuddering again and upon checking the transmission fluid I discovered it was 2 quarts low. Incorrect fluid levels are damaging to a transmission. This "business" closes early at 3 p.m. are closed weekends and does not have an answering service for either one of their phone numbers. If I could give them zero stars I would,

October 7, 2015 had an appointment to get transmission flushed and trans filter replaced in my 2002 Explorer Sport Trac w/ over 170K miles on it and fluid was black (smelled burnt). 1 of their techs drove it claiming it had a 1-2 and 2-3 shift flare. Truck drove fine getting there. They tell me they can't do the flush unless they drop the transmission to inspect the internal parts which was several hundred dollars more. I told them give me my keys and went to Currie Ford instead. Currie did the flush and I've still have no issues to this day. I'm also a mechanic, but some things I can't do at home and know a scam when I see one. Hope this AAMCO closes down. STAY AWAY!Fast foward to March 2016 I get a notice in the mail about my 2004 Chevy 1500 needing to be addressed. I DON'T OWN A 2004 CHEVY 1500! Just goes to show their incompetence.
Company refuses to honor it's warranty. Their mechanic improperly installed a transmission and they charged to fix his errors. I recently brought in a friend's Nissan Altima to have the transmission replaced and had it charged to my AAMCO Credit Card account. After picking the picking up the auto, the starter made a grinding noise when attempting to start the vehicle. Believing this to be a separate problem I took it to my regular mechanic. He stated that the problem was the screw in the transmission mounting was improperly installed and was causing damage to the starter. We had the car towed to their shop. The manager informed us that since another mechanic looked at the vehicle they would not honor the warranty. This is unacceptable because without having a third party inspect the vehicle how would they be found at fault. It is all around bad business to allow your employees to perform substandard work, and even worse practice not to fix the problem when it does occur.I currently have an open complaint with the better business bureau about the matter.
Jeff Is a stud. Any time i've dealt with them they always provided excellent customer service and add a personal touch. they helped me buy my mercedes and jeff and lani came over to inspect the car for me. Great People. Mike Brncik
Great owners & mechanic. Shopped around for price to rebuild tranny (2004 Impala) and they were within reason. After rebuilding had 2 minor issues that were taken care of right away. I was grateful to them due to them getting me financial help without having to pay interest for 6 months same as cash. Will continue to use them in future and recommend shop.
Nov 2014 I had a bad experience with this company located at 11612 N Florida Ave Tampa Florida, I do not recomend to no one, they swicth there prices. Im going in with not to bad tranmission and I come out withthe car doing nothing and changing my new battery to there old one. Plus based on Mr. Charles knoledge he charges his prices from one to another with no warning.This company is prepared to rob the poor....Im not upset because they didnt fix it all, I really wanted was estimate is the rob they do with me, the amount i paid for checking the transmission was $589.00 dollars. I explain to Mr. Charles before you do anything, If the fix was going to be more than $900.00 dollars, I said dont do it, Mr. Charles said based in his knoledge to fix the transmission is no more than that. After that day for 3 days no comunication i had to call him, at the end my price was $2,224.00 dollars really. They insisting me to get a finance anything, I was really clear that it was no more than $900 dollars. I call corprate and Mrs. Michelle said she coulndt help me to remburse the money cause i sign the reciept. If i dont sing they wont give me the car back. The mechanic when givin me the car he felt bad for me, and said sorry to me because of what they did to me. Even the mechanic new what was going on. Mr. Charles never gave me his face again not that his word was any good anyway.I EXPECTED SOMETHING MORE PROFESSIONALISM FROM THIS COMPANY, BAD DECISION . MY ADVICE IS TO NEVER EVER GO THERE. BAD PLACE, SERVICE, AND NON PROFESSIONAL.Yo fuy a AAMCO por que vi que arreglaban transmisiones en Noviembre del 2014, mi transmision no estaba ni buena pero tampoco tan mala pq mi carro estaba corriendo solo que le fartaba unos arreglitos. Cuando llego a AAMCO en 11612 N Florida Ave Tampa Florida, el Sr. Charles me atiende muy amable y le explico que mi transmision esta fallando un poco y me pregunta si lo puede correr le doy el si, el cual mi hijo estaba conmigo cuando el Sr. Charles me dice que basado en su experiencia el entiende que no es tan malo lo de mi transmision. Le pregunto si arreglarlo es mas de $900.00 dolares me dice que no, el Sr. Charles me muestra que ay un cobro de $225.00 por revisar si ay algo mas que cambiar y $25.00 al mecanico por hora, le pregunto como yo se cuantas horas tarda el mecanico me dice que 2 y le pregunto si solo es los $225.00 y las dos horas del mecanico que si seria algo mas me dice que no yo acedo le pido copia del papel me dice que me al otro dia me la da con el bill, que no ay problema. Nunca me llamaron espere 3 dias y me toco llamarlos yo a ellos para que el Sr. Charles me dijera que el arreglo me salia en $2,224.00, jamas imajine algo asi, l;a insistencia en que yo cojiera un prestamo para pagar pq ellos mismo refinancean . Es un monopolio lo que tienen. Como no consegui que el refinanciamiento pusieron todo de nuevo al carro y me cobraron $589.00 dolares, me cambiaron la bateria nueva por una vieja que no servia y el carro me lo termine llevando tan dañado que no sirvio mas. Consigo el numero de coorporate y me atiende la Sra. Michelle y logico de esperarce que no me podia ayudar en devolverme el dinero por que yo firme el recivo, pues como le explique que si no firmo el recivo no me dan el carro. Solo se inmuto a decirme lo siento no te puedo ayudar. LO QUE TIENEN ES UN MONOPOLIO EL MISMO MECANICO NI SE ATREVIO A MIRARME A LA CARA CABIZ BAJO ME DIJO QUE SENTIA MUCHO LO QUE ELLOS ME HABIAN HECHO. ESTAN PREPARADOS PARA ROBARLES A LOS POBRES YO TRABAJO MUY DURO Y SOY MADRE SOLTERA Y E PASADO MUCHO TRABAJO PARA QUE ESTA COMPAÑIA DE SINVERGUENZAS DE CUELLO BLANCO ROBEN ........ NO VALLAN A ESTA COMPAÑIA !! ES MALA NO LA RECOMIENDO.
JEFFS IS SO PROFESSIONAL!!!! I had them rebuild my transmission after my mechanic had me a buy a used transmission and it was bad. not only did they have my rebuild done in 2 days but had to deal with drama from my mechanic who had my car! they were very helpful and was trying to help me get my car towed over to them so they could help me finish repairing my car! I would recommend them to anyone!! I def. will be using them in the future!!! thank you Lonnie and Scott for all your help, it was greatly appreciated!!
I ordered an alleged rebuilt valve body and wiring harness. When I got it the valve body was dirty, a loose solenoid and the harness was broken in 3 places. They are a major rip off!
GREAT JOB DONE BY CALVIN’S TRANSMISSION SERVICE –TAMPA, FLORIDA 20 Sept 13This is a 5 star review of my experience with Calvin’s Transmission Shop on Nebraska St in Tampa, Florida. Thanks to Calvin, Greg and also Calvin Jr. I was travelling and working in Tampa Florda and....It was August 2013 and my car started kicking and bumping. I have a 2000 Mazda 626. I was concerned that the transmission was acting up. I stopped by Calvin’s Transmission shop to have them check it out and I met a gentleman named Greg. He assured me that they could get to the bottom of the problem and give an accurate quote. I left my car with Greg and in a day he had my estimate. I needed a full transmission rebuild. I got 3 additional price quotes. Calvin’s Transmission was the best price but I was concerned about their ability to do a good job obviously. I ended up going with Calvin’s Transmission. I discovered that Calvin, the owner is a master at repairing transmissions and Greg is a master at diagnosing the exact problem with the transmission and he is also very good with customer relations and people skills. Together they make a great team. My car is now repaired and I have been driving it for 3 weeks on and off the freeway and it is like a new car. I highly recommend Calvin’s transmission for your transmission needs. If you need a full rebuilt transmission it will not be cheap but they will be the best price in S. Tampa and they know what they are doing. MKC
