Additional Notes

Complaint: Had my transmission rebuilt here. Shortly thereafter (still under warranty) I noticed a fluid leak. I had my vehicle towed back where the told me it was not the transmission, it was an engine oil leak. I replied that the fluid was coming from the differential and was a clear viscous fluid, not engine oil. They then stated that they had simply over filled the fluid and it was venting. I believed them and had the oil leak addressed at my regular mechanic (I already knew about the oil leak) and thought everything was good now. I was wrong, when I next had my regular mechanic do some more work he stated that the transmission fluid was leaking into the differential and forcing the differential fluid out, at exactly the spot I had first noticed the leak initially. I explained the above story and he told me that the "vent" would be the dip stick hole, which was on the other side, there was no way "vented" fluid would be where I showed them I had seen it. I took it back again, this time they claimed I was out of warranty. I believe the problem existed while I was still under warranty when I took the vehicle back the first time and that they either were incompetent or they lied.

Desired Settlement: I payed for services, the services preformed were under par. A problem was created or neglected during the repair. I attempted to resolve the issue while under warranty and was either lied to or the staff was incompetent to understand and remedy the issue. Attempts were made to resolve the issue with the business, with unsatisfactory results. I would now like the business to either refund the cost of "repairs" they rendered or pay for the the repairs now required at the location of my choosing.

Business Response: Mr. ****  ***** got his transmission built on his 2001 Subaru  Legacy by Aamco Transmission Auburn on 12/17/12, we provided him 12000/12 month warranty which ever came in first. He came back on 03/17/14 stating there is some transmission Leak. We checked the leak we suspected the leak is from front seal in between the differential  And Transmission.  We recommended further inspection and told him it will cost him $550.00 to remove the transmission and fix the problem if parts required we will furnish them as well but Mr. **** ***** declined and said that he was going out of town and cannot get it fixed now, Further we wish to state that Mr.  ***** is out of warranty even then we were willing to work with him but he still declined.
