Additional Notes

Complaint: This company apparently renamed itself *** ******* *** *************, but also goes by **** ****** *** ******. It uses a couple different addresses in Texas as well. Engine was shipped from **** ** ******* *** **** **** ******** ** *****. This company misrepresented what they were selling. They quoted $160 for shipping and charged me $220. They said they would resolve this and never did. The engine they sent was so bad that my very reputable mechanic said he could not install it in good conscience. He took pictures of what scared him about the quality of the engine including evidence that the engine had never been tested, which the company had said it was. He showed me how he could tell that the pan had not been removed, which would have been necessary to test and I have pictures of this. The company said it was not a salvage engine though it very clearly was a salvage engine. They said that they did not have to prove that the mileage was the amount that they stated (86,000) because they give a one year warranty and "money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with the product." My mechanics other engine sources had proof of both the mileage and testing, complete with VIN number. Not this one. The engine came with parts cut off and a really cheap looking spray paint job with open holes where the spark plugs had been, which left the engine vulnerable to things falling into it according to my mechanic. My mechanic showed me a picture of how engines are supposed to look when you receive them used. WAY DIFFERENT! The engine never left the crate and the company said we could return it to them for a refund. They said on the phone that, it would be a complete refund including shipping both ways. I tried to get this in writing but they would never state it. I finally had to write them and say, "Do not pick up this engine for return unless your intention is to give me a 100% refund of all my expenses." They had the engine picked up. I paid $1145 on my credit card for the engine. They incorrectly charged me $220 COD for the shipping. After a total expense of $1365, they refunded me $400 with no explanation. Besides the endless frustration, they stole $*** from me and I want it back now.

Desired Settlement: Truthfully, I want this business closed so that they stop cheating people. But, realistically, the only thing I require to avoid a lawsuit is my $***. If I have to take them to small claims court I will be charging them legal fees and travel and lodging for my trouble.

4/18/2014 Problems with Product/Service | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: We ordered a 1998 Dodge Caravan Transmission from them in Nov 2013 had problems from the start and now they don't want to honor their warranty. In late Sept 2013 We called and talked to **** about a 1998 Dodge Caravan Transmission. She said she had one with approximately 68000 miles on it for $695.00 plus shipping. We ordered it with a 6 month warranty using a Company Credit Card and when we received this unit it was not a 1998 like we ordered, the MLP switch was busted and since another unit wasn't available at that time, We swap the MLP switch with the one out of our old transmission like **** asked. She said we would be compensated for that work and never was. We also had to replace the solenoid block, torque converter and the prindle switch in trying to get this unit working good enough to satisfy our customer. We are still having issues with this unit. The vehicle does not want to pull out or shift now and **** is saying that she can't warranty this unit even though her web site( says 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed. I will be happy to pull this transmission out of this Van and send it back to her for a full refund of my purchase price and the shipping costs. **** ******* @ Affordable Engines and Transmissions

Desired Settlement: We would like to have our purchase price, labor on working on this unit and the shipping to and from our shop refunded. $1298.32
