I took my 2000 Honda Accord in for transmission repair in August of 2011 after being quoted a ridiculously outrageous price for a new transmission from the Honda dealership. I also needed to have some brake work done and an engine mount replaced. I received estimates from a few other places before taking my car to Aamco. I found both Jeff & Jim to be incredibly courteous and professional. The place is very clean and the waiting area comfortable. They reassured me that they could handle the repair and gave me an estimate that I considered very reasonable. They were able to complete all of the work that I needed for way under the price that Honda had quoted me for the transmission repair alone. The work was completed sooner than anticipated and my car has been running great ever since! I also liked that they offer extended warranties on the work they do if you want additional peace of mind for a costly repair. I will not hesitate to take my car there from now on for all regular service and other repairs.
It is indeed rare to find a business that is honest and has integrity in now a days and when you find somebody or some place of business, not only does it surprise you but also makes you feel good that there still are people who believe in doing business with pride and honesty. In my case, I was told by a local transmission shop and a dealer that my transmission was shot and needed to be rebuilt or would have to be replaced with a new one. Truly and as a last resort I called AAMCO and talked to the owner himself and he offered to look at the car for free. After checking the transmission he called and said that the transmission itself was not shot that it was ok but it just needed a change in electrical surges and tweak to computer. The total cost of $450.00 vs over $2000 from the other transmission shop and my estimate from the dealer I took it to was over $4000. I could not afford that. I was so thrilled and thanked god that I made the call to this AAMCO. Otherwise I don't know what I would have done. So thankful to be pleasantly surprised by the level of service from this AAMCO and I will take my vehicle back for any other services that I may require in the future.
Brought my car here upon recommendation of my best friend. I know nothing about car repair but she said they were honest and did great work and would help me finance if I needed to. They gave me a great price and finished the job in less time than I was expecting. I love driving my Spider and now it is a pleasure to cruise around Sarasota.
I took my car here, the AAMCO location on Clark road in south Sarasota, for a full rear brake job. I knew I needed new rotors and pads. The guys working there looked over my car and did the work as expected, at a reasonable price, without trying to upsell me on any other work.
What is important to you when getting your car repaired? Trust? Can you trust them to do what they say they are going to do? Trust is very important to us. We are not auto mechanics and aside from gassing up, changing a tire or checking the oil/windshield wiper solution we leave the maintenance and repair to those who know what they are doing!! The folks at AAMCO are trustworthy, friendly, and fast! They will listen to your needs, help you to learn what is going on with your vehicle by carefully explaining what they find and how they intend to fix the issue in as timely a manner as possible and they follow through! We have five vehicles and bring them all to AAMCO for service and repair. We have been with AAMCO for many years and are happy customers. We trust AAMCO of Sarasota & Venice for all of our service and repair needs!!
My daughters SUV had issues with stalling. We had first brought it to another mechanic who gave an insane estimate and couldn't work on the vehicle for 2 weeks. I contact AAMCO on Clark and they said to bring it right in. Not only were they honest, professional, and courteous, they took the time to explain what the problem was in terms I would understand AND even sent me pictures as a visual! They didn't try to sell me additional services I didn't need, they just took care of the problem. The price was right, service excellent and fast! I would definitely recommend them.
Amazing customer service!!! I brought my car in thinking it needed some work that they easily could have charged me for, but instead explained my “user error” and sent me on my way - no charge - after checking the whole car and telling me it was in great shape!!! Wow. Integrity still exists!!! I will use them forever!
I cannot say how much we appreciated Justine Doub's help and compassion during a difficult time. She is the office Coordinator at this AAMCO. Our Chevy Tahoe broke down on 75 in Sarasota heading back to NJ from Fort Myers on a Thursday night. My car's transmission was shot and blowing fluid everywhere. I had my wife, two kids and two dogs in the car. She assisted us in getting an affordable rental at Enterprise so we could go back to Fort Myers until the repairs were done. She was in constant contact with us and kept us apprised of the progress and was on top of all of the details. She was even willing to come in on her day off to ensure we could get back on the road as soon as possible. It was truly a blessing that we were fortunate enough to find someone we trusted under such hectic circumstances and in an area that we did not know anyone.
