We took our car to Ben and he was very honest in telling us the problem with the car and how much we would be spending. He spent time looking for the best way to take care of the transmission problem so the expense would be lower. Thanks Ben for your honesty and help. I highly recommend AAMCO Transmissions in Oceanside.
They did a great job on my transmission rebuild, making sure it was 100% before giving it back. They gave me a fair price and a warranty to top it all off. Couldn't have asked for better service.
After a long search for someone who was able to help me with my transmission problems I finally found the place. I spoke to Ben if he was able to fix my transmission and without hesitation he said yes! Not only were they able to fix my issue, they are incredibly fast! It took a total of two days for them to fix it when other shops said it would take about 2 weeks. Ben also gave me a great price! I would recommend everyone to AAMCO in Oceanside!
Had to get my transmission rebuilt on my 96 Dodge Ram 1500 this last month. First local place I took it too in Carlsbad said they wouldn't rebuild (even though they weren't sure if it was just a part of the transmission that needed work or the whole thing) and pushed me towards spending $3k to get replace the whole thing with a used one, no warranty. My friend suggested I get someone else to check it out as it could just be a part of the transmission, rather than replace the whole thing. Decided to give AAMCO a try. Jimmy was my contact at AAMCO and was straightforward with me from the get go explaining everything. They found out nothing mechanically was wrong with the transmission, just a few parts needed to be re-built, not the whole thing. They had me back on the road in 2 days and gave me a 1-year warranty on their work. Saved me some cash, were honest and upfront and got me back on the road quickly. Couldn't ask for much better. Truck is running great!
I've been to a few different aamco, one in Miramar and the other in Oceanside. Both had the same quality of service, but the one in Oceanside left a stellar impression. I had a great experience every time I go there. The price quotes I got were cheaper than other places. When they did my transmission, they also gave me a free oil change that I didn't even expect. Service was quick yet thorough. The owner Ben is very personable. I coincidentally ran into him at the mall, and he actually remembers his customers, so I had few minutes of chit-chat with him there also. He treats you like a friend rather than just "every other customer".
We came to AAMCO because of the reputation for quality service. The store manager went way beyond our expectations. His communication and happy request for repairs was very much appreciated. We will be back.
My first impression was a lasting one, I was greeted upon arrival and was treated very warmly throughout the entire visit.
Great service. Nice people. Fair prices. I'll definitely be back when my car needs it!
I was so impressed with their dedication and commitment to customer service I told the owner I'm going on a recommendation spree!
On Friday night, my fiancé’s car took a dump On the way home with what we thought was his clutch. We were SO STRESSED- the money, the fact it was a weekend and most shops are closed, and especially Covid throwing a wrench in EVERYTHING! But first thing Saturday morning we called AAMCO and spoke with the owner, Ben. The calls from the shop were being forwarded to his personal phone, and he was all over it trying to get us helped. We had AAA tow it to the shop, and he went straight there from his house to meet the driver. He took it apart to diagnose is first thing Monday morning. We felt relieved that his prices were 500-$1000 cheaper than what the dealerships were gonna charge to replace the clutch, and he gave us a timeline of about 48 hours to do the work, where as the dealership said anywhere from 5-7 days.. possibly more. When they took it apart LUCKILY it was just an axle and not the clutch. He took care of it and had it ready by the next day. He worked with us and had offered some discounts. We will definitely be bringing our vehicles back to them if we have any other major issues. Ben was very personal and made us feel like a HUGE weight was lifted off our shoulders when we first talked to him on the phone. Thank you and your team for all you did to get us back on the road!!!
I called around Transmission repair shop near Oceanside and AAMCO was able to help me out when the transmission on my 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 went out. Ben and Steve were very professional when it came to understanding your situation and assured me that they would cover me. I recommend anyone who has transmission problems to do business with AAMCO.
Let me say I don’t post on here much but I had to talk about a great place to have your vehicle serviced. I “had” and older work truck which was starting to act up so I took it to AAMCO for an inspection. A day later I get the bad news ( the price of the repairs) and was given a few options for payment. The options were great and then as we talked the owner even went more out of his way to help make sure my truck was back on the road. While this is a national chain, this shop is owned by a small business owner and person we all need to support. If your car or truck is not running just right, take it hear and rest easy knowing it will be repaired properly without breaking the bank!
Spoke to Ben. Very professional very thorough. Got me in with no appointment within one hour. Diagnostics was shorter than the time he told me what it’s gonna take. I would strongly recommend coming back
I spoke with the owner Ben who was real friendly, straight forward, & kept me updated on my car. He’s got a very professional team with great service. I took my custom 1985 Buick Regal in for a bad transmission leak in the pan. Once it was repaired, they asked if I wanted to have it looked at since they noticed some late shifting which I had noticed before as well. They let me know what the problems were and what new parts were needed. I chose to have my transmission rebuilt at a reasonable price. They also had financing available, which also helped. They were done within a couple days and when I got it back I noticed right away how much smoother it felt driving and I see I have no more leaks anywhere around the transmission. These guys know what they’re doing.
