"$900 just to look at my Transmission. I am so worried about the Total cost. Praying that its Not too expensive and that they Fix the issue. Please give my Tahoe TLC. I Will Change the Star Rating once I see the Good Work. Thanks Guys"
"I was referred to Dave "specifically" at this location by a friend who is an experienced mechanic. Not only was my experience here quick, professional and reasonable, but also personable. It's never easy to have to spend money on a car unexpectedly. But if you have to do, at least go here. You'll get an honest assessment with an accurate length of time to do the work. Keep this number in your phone for the next time you're towing your car and don't know where to tow it to! I even got a ride. Thank you Dave, I hope I don't have to see you too soon!"
"These guys really took care of me well. Called up and Frank answered to me right in like family. I Shopped around and these guys gave me an unreal deal and warranty and the whole nine yards. I highly recommend Aamco Costa Mesa for any of your transmission needs."
"Dave took great care of my wife and helped her tremendously. His honesty and great service earned her trust and because of the way he treated her we will be going here for any needs."
"BEST PLACE TO GET YOUR CAR FIXED. DON'T EVEN THINK TWICE!!! I was driving my car the last week and noticed my transmission wasn't working right. My check engine turned on and a bunch of dashboard censors. Its never fun to take your car in... you have to plan for someone to pick you up or inconvenience them. Its just a hassle nobody has time for! I called a couple places and Dave called me right away to see what he could do to help me out. I walked into AAMCO and was greeted by Dave. Very friendly and inviting. I was going to get a rental (which would of costed me $200-$300) but he let me have the loaner car (FOR FREE) because he didn't want me have to wait. I am in sales and know a someone that is good at his craft. Dave is one of a kind and if you have any car issues whatsover.... this is your only spot. Trying to find a place that won't rip you off and take advantage of you is very hard. Dave and I were joking... he actually cared about me and wanted to help me out ASAP. I know I have found the place where I am going to take my car too for anything and everything. Don't hesitate Dave is one of a kind... especially in the car repair business. He made my day!"
