Re: latest ?s / probs
Never trust Aamco! I had a friend with a 4 spd Mercedes that took his car
into Aamco because it was stuck in reverse. They diagnosed it as an
"internal transmission problem," and offered to fix it with a used tranny
for $700. I convinced him to have the car taken to the "expensive"
Mercedes mechanic in town. The Mercedes tech spotted the problem right
away and fixed it: bad shift bushings bushings, parts $3.60, labor $40.
My own car was previously diagnosed with the same expensive malady, it
needed a clutch cable adjustment, and a small shifter adjustment. These
are just two of many stories from Aamco that I know of.
