"They say they take 5:30pm oil change appointments then went back on that saying they had an opening at 5pm, but won’t do 5:30 like they advertise. I work til 5pm and told them I’d be there ten minutes later and was rejected. I wanted to give them a second chance after leaving my air box disassembled and tearing my air intake hose, as well as to make sure the young inexperienced mechanic didn’t strip my drain plug, but they asked me to stay away after a few legitament complaints. I liked their coupons and was going to get a trans flush then timing belt there to, but now I feel going to a more professional shop like Ron’s is worth it without the coupons. AAMCO IS CHEAP FOR A REASON!"
"The most honest people in the business!!! 6Took great care of me and my car is running like a charm!!! Will definitely be back and continue to send people to you guys. Thank you for everything!!! 😃 Carrie and Conner are amazing!!!"
"THANK YOU, THANK YOU AAMCO!!! Hat's off to YOU, for saving me in costly repairs. Have been going to AAMCO for a few years, for oil change, repairs and other things needed for ALL my vehicles... The owners and technicians are friendly. I'd recommend them anytime. If you're looking for a simple oil change to something major. Give AAMCO a try and you'll NEVER go anywhere else. Thank you again!"
"All I can say is in the last 2 months these people have bent over backwards to help us. August our 1996 cadillac had trans code issues when we took it for the state emmissions test. The people at Aamco found the problem (bad trans) and did their best to keep our costs to a minimum. They even went as far as to take the vehicle to the test lane after completing the trans replacement. A week after that I was hospitalized for a hip replacement and upon returning home after surgery and 2 weeks at a rehab facility my wife calls from work, her 2002 Honda accord had some flashing dash lights (chk eng, TCS and Drive indicator). I told her to call Carrie at AAmco they took the car the next day and diagnosed...you guessed it, another bad trans (not bad at 204,000 miles). Once again the AAmco team came up with options, meanwhile, on a Friday, the Caddy blew out both main brake lines. Aamco towed the caddy from Gurnee mills to their shop within an hour of our call to Conner and Conner informed my wife she could still drive her Honda locally since we would be down 2 vehicles and we could bring it back on Monday for the trans work not "loosing" our spot in line. Unfortunately the repairs on the Cadillac were beyond our budget. We dropped the Honda off, the techs started work Monday and went through it with a fine toothed comb. We were informed immediatley of 2 additional problems that could become issues down the line if not addressed. Within a week it is back on the road, they even installed, balanced 4 new tires and aligned it, and the amount quoted is EXACTLY what we paid. (as was the original cost for the caddy trans) It's runs and rides like new!! Thank you Thank you Aamco team, Especially Carrie and Conner. You treated us like family, right down to the goodbye hugs from Carrie Mick & Barb"
"Could not have asked for better or friendlier service. Carie W. Took care of everything and kept me informed throughout the repair. I will recommend them to my friends and family! Thanks for everything!!!"
