"Pete and his team were very nice and informative. They resolved my issue and it didn't take long at all. They respected my time by beginning the work at my scheduled time. Thank you and I'll see you again next time I need work done on my car. Keep up the great work. "
"Noel, what can I say, he knows how to take care of his customers and their vehicles. Had a new transmission put in and he made it as painless as possible. Best part was, he offered several options which no one else I went to did. I just had my 1st oil change since and again Noel was so nice, courteous and friendly. I highly recommend this location for your car service needs! Noel, thank you and your team!!!! ***UPDATE 8/2/2018*** The 'New" transmission failed!!! Noel was out so Jason took over and ordered an NEW tranny coming from back east. (note: this did not happen the first time, which was a 1-day fix) Gave me a rental for the week and allowed me to see the old tranny when I picked up my car. Seems nice and tight, running well but I have only had it for 1 day so time will tell. I do feel the difference this time around from the 1st fix. I can not say what happened one the 1st tranny but at least they did not hesitate to get a new one ordered right away. Thank you Jason! I hope I do not have to edit this again. (sorry guy's I took a star back)"
"Good people pleasant to work with, fix my car and did a great job. Definitely come back again."
"Very satisfied with my experience. Walked in lobby is nice and clean. I was politely greeted by Noel and went over the symptoms of my vehicle. I dropped off my car and was constantly informed about the status of my car. All issues were solved quickly. I will definitely bring my other vehicles here."
"My girlfriend needed some car work done asap, these guys are solid. Did it right the first time!"
"First and foremost I would like to mention the positive things AAMCO had provided. 1. I was given 3 quotes for my transmission with little to no money to fix the car they helped me find financing. No one could help me. So AAMCO was nice enough to take payments without interest. 2. I wasn't charged a storage fee while I was paying off my balance. 3. I was shown the problem inside my transmission to be assured there was a problem. Now here is what pissed me off. The vehicle I had repaired had a 3/4 of a tank of gas when I dropped it off for repair. When I picked up my car yesterday it had no gas!! My gas light was on and 200 extra miles put on my car!! I would watch these guys like a hawk. If they have the opportunity to take it, they will."
