Complaint: I paid Atlas Transmission to rebuild me a 350 Turbo racing transmission with a trans brake that they would supply and I install for $827.40. I picked up on Feb. 24th and I installed on Feb. 27th. I immediately noticed it had issues; i.e. wouldn’t shift at all and made clunking noises. I trailered my vehicle back to Atlas the following week for them to look over. They texted a photo of the trans fluid pan with metal shavings and said I had failed to flush the system after changing from my old trans. I verified with my old transmission that there were not any shavings; hence, it was not the problem. They did not contest these findings and instead said they would flush the system not and try to save transmission. This did not work and Atlas said they were going to try a 2nd rebuilt transmission that they would install. Upon coming to pick-up vehicle I received a bill for $351.65 for trans flush, repair, shop materials, and new fluids. An additional bill was not previously discussed or agreed upon, however, I paid and trailered my vehicle home. At home I realized the 2nd trans was not only of lower quality, but also missing the trans brake. When I called Atlas I was told that it was only a “loaner” (although never mentioned prior to me calling) and that they didn’t have parts available for what I had originally paid. After 3 weeks I was told to trailer my vehicle back again for this 3rd transmission. This time the shop manager Clint said I would need to come help him install because he couldn’t pay their trans guy again for my vehicle. When I arrived Clint was missing and the trans guy Glen was there and he said he would install. When Clint arrived late he asked me to compensate Glen. Even though it was never agreed upon, I forked out $100 to pay their employee. While there I agreed upon additional engine work so I left again and returned in a week. Their lot attendant drove my vehicle right onto my trailer when I arrived. When I got home I found the vehicle would not reverse off trailer. I immediately texted Clint who said to push the trans brake button, but it still would not work. I then manually pushed off trailer as I needed to return trailer. Clint said on Saturday April 9th he would come out to my house and pick-up car the next day. I took off work and they never showed. I was angry at being blown off and texted Clint to find out why he was not responding. I was told “he wasn’t the owner” and they were also “tired of the issue” but would be there the next morning. Picked up vehicle on Tuesday, April 12th and returned to me on the 23rd with a now 4th transmission. Clint trailered back to me and we took for a test drive. I felt bad and gave him another $100 for gas and his time. No issues that day and upon local driving. However when I drove further to Erie on Saturday April 21st on my way home the 2nd gear failed. Texted Clint at 4pm with no response. I tried again on afternoon of Tuesday, April 24th and angrily accused them of incompetence. Clint then responded to say he was “coming to my house face to face.” As this is not in reference to coming to fix my vehicle and instead implies engaging in physical confrontation I take this as a cue that Atlas is no longer interested in fulfilling my initial purchase. I thought I was dealing with a professional company, but that clearly is not the case.
Desired Settlement: I was initially understand with the multiple trips to Loveland from Brighton (total of 42 miles one way), the constant lack of communication, additional billing, loaner transmissions, non-functioning transmissions, and now there are threats from the shop manager. The transmission should have cost me $830 and now I have paid people at this company a total of $1380, plus my own time and gas to trailer my car back and forth multiple times. I think it’s only fair at this point for me to return the fourth transmission that won't run properly to Atlas and be reimbursed for the trans work totaling $1179.05.
