I just wanted to send a quick note and word of appreciation to recommend any body who needs a good mechanic. My Honda Odyssey was acting up and driving terribly. I was told by my mechanic that new transmission is needed & will cost $3500.00. I got so afraid and did not know what to do. As I heard on radio, so called AAMCO of Pasadena and spoke to Manager. Who told what happened to transmission & soothed my nerves. He towed my van to his shop, checked at no charge, rebuilt, fixed and saved me money. Service was great. Thanks!
Some of the best customer service I have ever seen and willing to help out a stranger as if they were family. Since when have you ever heard that said about a mechanic hands down return customer here.
I rarely write reviews, but this place really does deserve one. Make sure you deal with Robert, he is an honest person, not looking to rip anybody off. He is very knowledgeable about cars, and surely has the best deals/service. Car shops tend to be horrible, but I am very impressed with this AAMCO. A+
The AAMCO in Pasadena,CA is probably one of the best shops in California.
Can't believe I found an honest mechanic after living in CA for less than a year!! Replaced nearly everything on the car before moving here, so the dreaded unexplainable clicking noise sent me to the the companies with whom we had warranties. Firestone: "not the tires, must be the brakes." Midas: "not the brakes, look here, it's the transmission." No one wants transmission problems, and the car's only 6 years old. Well thank the lord above, no transmission problems:
I had AAMCO service my Honda Accord's transmission in March 2012 when it had 156000 miles. Since then, I added another 32,000 miles on the car. The transmission still runs fine and is noise-free when switching gear. I usually don't put down any review right after any service. After almost a year, I think it's time to give AAMCO Pasadena a fairly happy 5 star.
The small staff here does a great job. They informed me of available deals. They saved me $500 compared to other brake services. I would definitely recommend them.
I purchased a used car this past summer and had these guys do an inspection beforehand. They were very nice, did a thorough inspection and gave me a great deal. 👍🏼
I brought my car to Richard not knowing exactly what was wrong with it. I actually thought it was the transmission however after they completed an extended diagnostic procedure they found out that it wasn't the transmission. Instead it was a faulty fuel pressure regulator that needed replacement. Richard was honest and professional. Him and the rest of his team at AAMCO (Pasadena, CA) are highly skilled and provided, by far, the best customer service I've ever experienced from an Auto shop. I strongly recommend them for any of your car issues. Kudos to you Richard and thank you for the great service.
This entire experience was terrible. The shop took my car to another repair shop to fix it because they were to inexperienced to service my car. They never told they were going to do this. It broke down 2 times afterwards needing a total of 3 rebuilds of the transmission. AAMCO is unprofessional and engaging in deceitful practices. They also withheld the paperwork so I couldn't verify what they had done to my car. Completely corrupt organization. I would never recommend your company to anyone. I even had communication with your support services who just turned their back on my complaints! What kind of service are you running here? If a franchise is unable to repair a car they have accepted then why wouldn't they take the car to another AAMCO franchise? Why go to an independent shop? Obviously AAMCO can no longer fix transmissions!!!
