I would highly recommend this shop to anybody who wants to get a quality job at a fair price. Recently while visiting Tampa, I ran into some car trouble. I visited a couple of shops before this one to get an estimate to fix the transmission on my Chevy Cargo Van. I got a budget from Curtis (front desk) that was $1000 less than the previous places I went to. They fixed my van in a timely manner and they gave me a warranty on the job and parts. After my experience with AAMCO, I now realize that the other shops did not know what they were doing. One of the other shops I visited said that in order to fix my "problem", they needed a special tool (that didn't exist) to remove the plug for my rear differential. AAMCO showed me an alternative for fixing my “problem” by filling my gear oil for me as it had been leaking and was low. They also discussed a separate issue I'd been having with shifting and gave me a good idea about what needed to be done. Service was fast and friendly. Thanks!
I had my 03 BMW towed in because it had several problems and was not running. Scott took care of everything. He was very nice, honest, stayed in communication each step of the way. The car is running great and the cost was very reasonable. It's great to have a trustworthy place to take your car! Thanks guys!
These guys are Pros! I took my 2007 VW GTI to them for a new timing belt and water pump. They did a great job at a very competitive price. They'll be getting all my business going forward! If you want honest pros working on your car and not somebody trying to take advantage of you then call Scott at AAMCO. Thanks Scott, you guys rock!
A BIG thank you to Scott and Curtiss for all that you did to my car. I cannot believe the level of service I received from this shop. Very professional and I appreciate the constant contact filling me in on the status of my car. Every time they called, I felt as if I was the top priority and that they had no other cars but mine. I would bring any one of my family's three cars to them in a heartbeat and feel confident about the work being performed.
$3,599.92! That's the amount of money I was able to save because of John and Scott's honesty. This was what happened. 8/31/2022: I took my car to a dealership for a regular checkup and engine oil change. While I was waiting, service personnel texted me with a video clip that showed an oil leak spot on top of the engine cover. The technician explained the oil spot and asked me to replace the timing cover. The price is $3,599.92 which I could not afford. But I remembered the mechanic whom I heard from the body shop (Primo Auto Collision) owner when I repaired my car last year. I called AAMCO at 5802 S. Dale Mabry and made an appointment. 9/1/2022: I dropped my car. 9/2/2022: Scott called me and said he put fluorescent dye in the engine oil room, ran the car for some time, and looked at any leak but he was not able to find evidence. He told me the oil spot was more likely fallen oil during the engine oil change rather than an actual leak and thus, it seemed unnecessary to replace the timing cover. However, to make sure, he asked me to come back two weeks later for one more checkup. My wife and I were really surprised at his honesty - already the dealership told me to replace it and I was ready to do so. Even if he replaced the timing cover, we would be satisfied if we paid a lower price. 9/16/2022: I took my car one more time to AAMCO. After a careful look, Scott told me that everything is dry and there is no oil leak. My wife and I were really happy to save big money and thankful to Scott and John. Later, one question arose - why the dealership didn't offer me a thorough diagnosis at first but rather a firm recommendation to replace the timing cover which costs $3,559.92? I think now is your turn to test the integrity of Scott, John and other staff members of AAMCO at South Dale Mabry.
I brought two of my trucks there on separate occasions and glad I did. One was for a transmission rebuild and the other for a radiator replacement. They delivered in a timely manner. Also helped with payment options. Thank you! Will definitely visit again.
Great guys when it comes to transmission. Wish they did exhaust work without changing whole exhaust system. They did recommend taking to someone who did welding and cutting to save money. Good advise sold shop not about up selling.
Great work and professional service on my Jeep. Being an ASE tech myself, I know what it takes to do top shelf work. Scott,John and their team are a great team. I recommend them highly.
