On 11/8/00, I took my car to a auto repair shop for a vibration in my 1996 Nissan Pathfinder. The auto repair told me it was the front drive shaft ($750.00) Thinking that AAMCO would be a specialist in drivetrains, I took my car to AAMCO on 11/14/00. AAMCO told me that the driveshaft was fine, that it was the rear differential. I went ahead with their recomendation, and had the rear differential repaired ($1097.42). When I picked up my car (11/28/00), I was told that the vibration was still there, that the transfer case needed to be rebuild and the front driveshaft replaced ($1500.00+). Being close to x-mas and a wedding renewal out of town, I chose not to have that work done. I took the old parts with me. On 3/32/01, I took my car to a private transmission repair shop to fix the problem. The tech found the problem as a bad joint in the front driveshaft. I had the front driveshaft replaced ($741.69). My car runs smooth now! The tech looked at the old parts from the rear differential and said, “INSPECTED CUSTOMER’S PARTS FROM PREVIOUS WORK DONE ON DIFFERENTIAL. NO PROBLEM WAS FOUND THAT WOULD HAVE CAUSED ANY TYPE OF PROBLEM!” He also mentioned that any qualified tech would have noticed the bad front driveshaft. The transfer case was fine, no problem. I have complained to AAMCO’s local shop, but they say they fixed what they thought was the problem. I have filed a complaint with the BBB, but their reply was the same. Lawyers won’t attend small claims, and they would bring theirs! Please help me to recover the $1100.00 that they stole from me!
