1999 Plymouth prowler
I was very happy with the service that I received with prior service at Metro Transmission. Not so happy with service on my 1999 Plymouth prowler. My passenger door was badly and my drivers was damaged

So so
I trash wasn't left in my car. Also is there a reason why the music stations all got changed and program to Spanish? Never happy about this pay to get my car serviced not readjusted for the music and have trash left in it.
Rick G., Owner from Metro Transmission and Automotive responded on 03/21/2018

Hi Patrick...first off I want to apologize for any "trash" that was left in the vehicle. Some how the vehicle didn't get looked over before it was released to you. As far as the radio stations, when we remove the battery cables to work on the vehicle, the radio stations go back to whatever was preset from the factory. Once again I apologize for you not feeling you had a great experience with us this time. Hopefully we can prove next time that customer satisfaction is our number 1 goal!

Waited 1/2 the day
We were disappointed that after making an appointment well in advance to have a routine transmission service, Metro took 4 hours to get our vehicle completed. We were told that it was a 1 hour turn around and we would be fine to wait - this was clearly a lack of planning on Metro's part. One reason we chose Metro is because we don't like being subject to the 1st come- 1st serve policy of many shops. We expected that the personal and resources would be in place to get our work done in a timely manner.
Rick G., Owner from Metro Transmission and Automotive responded on 04/07/2017

Dawn....We are truly sorry for how long it took to complete your service. We appreciate you as a customer and DO value your time. We always try and exceed our customers expectations. Sorry we fell short of that this time.

Valerie said the business was trying to charge her for things that were unnecessary for her vehicle.

Valerie...sorry that you felt we were trying to sell you unnecessary repairs but after speaking with you on the phone, you stated that was not the issue but instead you felt the repair was overpriced. In order to provide an excellent repair and warranty our estimates are for quality parts that we use to ensure that any repair is done right the first time.

Im sorry Carl that you were having issues but I'm glad we were able to get it checked out at an ATRA shop in Arizona and the shop gave it a clean bill of health. Let us know if you have any other issues.

Kaitlyn said the business was rude over the phone, overcharged her, and tried to tell her she needed a new part even after she insisted them to use a used part.
This review was collected via phone interview by Customer Research Inc.
Rick G., Owner from Metro Transmission and Automotive responded on 02/25/2016

Sorry Kaitlyn you felt you were treated poorly. It is always our goal to provide excellent customer service. I'm sorry we fell short of your expectations. We know that car repairs can be costly and inconvenient and that is the reason we don't install used starters. We can't warranty a used component and if we had installed one and it failed on you in a week or a month afterwards, you would of had the expense of repairing your vehicle all over again and would have cost you more money in the long run. By installing quality parts with good warranties at fair prices, have given us the trust that our customers put in us. Sorry once again for your experience.

Allison said the business put an axle in her vehicle, which was the wrong part. The axle then shattered and ended up breaking other parts on her vehicle. The business told her they had a warranty, but they would not pay for damages caused by the shattering of the wrong part. She had to pay twice and is very unhappy.

After talking to the other shop and them not honoring the deal they made with us, we've have decided to refund the remaining balance to Allison to rectify the situation. We are sorry for your inconvenience.

Andy said this business was really patient and went the extra mile for him. They had a difficult time with his specific vehicle. They ran into snags in the job which required special attention. The first transmission had a defect in one of the gears. The second transmission they received had the same defect. They rebuilt the defective part instead of making him wait for another transmission to come in. They did not charge him for rebuilding part of the transmission. They were very helpful. He wanted to thank them for their service. They ordered a low mileage transmission that was used but had a warranty on it.
