Anybody Try AAMCO?


Recommended Posts

Anyone try AAMCO for replacing the clutch? Does anyone even trust them? I called them, and the guy who picked up was very salesman like. (you know, like the really nice just to make a sale type; fake personality). I didn't like it, but maybe they can give me a decent price on replacing the clutch.

Either that, or does anyone know of anyother place to get it done down here in Orange County?

I remember calling a Porsche mechanic down in Huntington Beach, but their service was really bad. I think they quoted me $2k for a clutch job.

Wow, no one wants to answer this question :D

The answer is NO -- don't take it to AA*** unless you know the technician personally or he is your brother-in-law.

Find and indy shop recommended by a Porsche owner or PCA member or RennTech member with experience. You will save a few $$ with the indy shop.

Or, you could DIY and save big $$$

Take care,

AAMCO is known for screwing people over, co-worker of mine towed his 5.0 mustang there cause the tranny seized up and they said it'll be 700 bucks to take it all apart to find the issues, They called him back by the end of the day and told him to go over, He got there and all they did was remove it from the car and never took it apart and said, The Shaft is stuck....that cost 700 bucks, they ever took it appart and expected him to pay $700 for just removing it. He didnt pay and somehow got screwed when he brought his own trans to have them install and then he took them to small claims and was awarded $1500 but they never installed the new trans in correctly, they actually left out the cross-member that held the rear end of the trans from hanging...RIP OFFS
