Additional Notes

Complaint: Approximately for the past 4 years, I have had (currently now 10-30-13) 4 problems to include a complete rebuilt transmission that AAMCO has done. The first problem I have encountered with is I took my truck to an AAMCO store in San Diego on Convey St. They repaired my truck with a 3 year, 50,000 mile warranty along with a letter I received saying I have a lifetime warranty. Throughout the past 3 years, I have had to return back to AAMCO in El Cajon 3 times because the store on Convey St has closed down. I turned my truck into the store in El Cajon on Oct 28, 2013. The person I am working with is ****, 619.442.0404. On Oct 30, 2013, Todd informed me that the AAMCO headquarters department said they will NOT honor the lifetime warranty and it would cost me $1,800.00 to repair my truck.

Desired Settlement: To honor this lifetime warranty that I have received from AAMCO and do the appropriate repairs in 24 hours that Todd quoted me on Oct 30, 2013.

Business Response: Mr. *****,

I understand that you are upset.
Aamco head quarters has decided to honor your warranty one more time. They have instructed us to let you know this is the last time they will do the repair at not cost to you.
Each shop in this chain is independently owned. Aamco Transmission of El Cajon did not perform the initial repair nor issue the life time warranty. It was issued by an unscrupulous man that not longer belongs to our chain. You can contact Aamco Head Quarters for more information in this matter.
Again, all we have been trying to do is to help you get your transmission repaired at a low or not cost to you, but ultimately is was not our call to perform such repair until we had authorization from Aamco Head quarters.
A regular retail cost for a transmission repair including parts and labor for a unit  like the one you have in your truck is between $ 2,200 and $ 2,600.00. Todd have given you the option to get yours repaired at a considerable discount as an option, Aamco head quarters finally decided to cover this repair.
