This was my first and last time at this place.I went there in November 2010 because my check engine light was on and they offer a free check up. First they let me wait an hour and I found out later that it only takes to hook up a computer which took Autozone 5 min. Then they said it was a malfunction on the motor and to take a closer look it would cost me $180. When they got a no he offered a total fix for $180 and I was like how can u know how much it will be!?!?!? When I did not aggree they suddenly knew it was one of the oxygen sensor and it would be about $330 with labour (noted by that time I already told him multiple times that I am done). At that point my toddler was going insane due lack of sleep, my patience were running on empty and I told them in a less friendly tone that I want my keys back. At the end it really was one of the oxygen sensors and it cost me $70 for the parts at Autozone and $40 at another mechanic in labour. They just thought they could scam me out of $$$.
Great to a new girl in town

So my engine light came on just as i was finishing a cross state move. I have an 08 pt cruiser with 38000 miles on it so it is just over the covered 36000. Being new in town I took it to the local dealer. BIG mistake. I was treated so poorly I was pushed to the point of tears and then "encouraged" to do something "might" fix the problem. $235 later as I pull out the light comes right back on!! So I called AAMCO. I had always heard their name in the past and figured what the heck. Justin and the Team there were great. After a lengthy phone call of me venting in his ear he told me to bring it in and they would take care of me. And They did. They understood my very limited budget and what I had just gone through. He even attempted to get the company to cover the repairs. Above and beyond 1 to 1 service. Not once have I been made to feel like a "dumb girl" or have I felt pushed or taken advantage of. I will for sure take my car back there for it's future needs. Patty is also g

In my process of moving to Oregon. I left Seattle at 5:30am on my round trip to Portland. Much to my surprise, when I arrived at the DEQ my truck failed the emissions test. I searched for a mechanic to help in a timely fashion and was hoping for a miracle. I was running out of time to pass the DEQ test and get back to the DMV to transfer all of my out of state info and take the tests needed by 4:00pm. Many thanks to the gentlemen at AAMCO who busted their hind ends on my behalf. The AAMCO team also supplied me with vital information consisting of a list of driving instructions printed from an online report. According to the online report was a recipe of driving instructions to complete before another examination at the DEQ. Justin, the manager on duty, left me an impression as a good brother. He supplied me with a route to drive to prepare for the DEQ exam. The end result was intense for I was the last one tested at the DMV for the day. Goal accomplished, A job well done!
So not what I expected.

So I fill my tank at the local station when my van starts running real bad then the idiot light came on. The only thing I could think of was their commercial for the free check. Check this out, not only was the inspection free but SO WAS THE FIX!! Yeah, appearantly I must have knocked the clip that holds my distributor cap loose when I was checking my oil level. It's obvious these guys are in it for the long haul and I'm gonna be right there with them, you can bank on that!
