Pottstown PA AAMCO

Again - Pottstown PA AAMCO.

Owner is good @ padding bills for labor and parts.

Unfortunately my young son was driving alone visiting a friend and staying that evening when the vehicle had broke, literally within pushing distance of AAMCO.

A Technician opened the hood to find the serpentine belt came off because the idler pulley bracket portion (inclusive bracket for a/c compressor & alternator) had broke.

Wanting to handle it himself, the owner informed him of a price

but it couldn't be repaired till the following day. Worse, he gave him cash to do it.

The vehicle was pushed from front of building to the side with a fenced lot. Yeah - That took a whole hour of labor.

Checked following day and vehicle would be done by closing @ 5 PM. They had closed early.

Vehicle remained behind fence for 4 1/2 days. Beware the fenced lot for your protection - keep believing if you want.

Shop did leave a serpentine belt in vehicle. No argument about the shop being compensated for the part. Until the $ - Local dealership charges half the price for a factory replacement part.

Found and bought required bracket and pulley myself.

Thanks for heads up guys - Unsatisfactory dealings with vendors.

Under shop observation, vehicle was removed from fenced lot and moved around corner in front of another establishment.

I performed the labor disassembling and reassembling taking less than an hour.

This is a crook! Figured a franchise business would have more professional people running them, LOL with AAMCO.

FYI - if you care to reach out . .

The owner is Doug Gregory

This is a very old review. Doug Gregory no longer is involved with this shop or with AAMCO. Current ownership has received "Superlative Customer Satisfaction" award for 2011, 2012 & 2013. Stop in, you'll be glad you did.
