Editorial review from Citysearch 3/31/2014

Customer service was great. Automotive service did not match that customer service. Repairs were done for thousands of dollars that were not necessary to stop my original problem. Wind up taking the vehicle elsewhere and the problem was easily fixed for under $400. more

THEY PUT THE CUSTOMER FIRST 9/21/2011

My Dodge Ram SRT-10 was sent here from another shop under warranty work. The warranty company didn't want to work with them because of the original shop, until Dan spoke with them. Shortly after the warranty company came out promptly and approved my claim. My truck was repaired quickly however, events not in their control, caused an unforeseen delay. They were sent the wrong torque convertor but had that problem adressed in no time. New one was quickly installed and off I went. I came back with (maybe as a pain in the butt customer) but they still looked into it immediately and my problem is solved. My truck is running better then it ever has and between Rick (the builder) and Dan a.k.a. the man (office manager) they really proved to me, customer service is their policy over there. This must be true because they are moving to an even bigger shop just up the street. They won't stop until the customer is happy! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! more

****************THE BEST IN SOUTH FLORIDA**************** 8/31/2011

I just had a clutch and flywheel replace with them and they were VERY friendly and respectable (Stephan is the friendly auto person i ever met) . I spoke with the same person Stephan every time I called ( he answered all my stupid questions ) He broke down the price with me and their labor fee is very reasonable.He also show me the old parts that he replace , which made me feel that I didn't get cheated. This is the 2nd car i took here and both times I have had great customer service and wonderful work done on my car!! My brother and sister in law had a cars fix here and were very pleased. I would rate the 11 out of 1 -10. And in the future if I have problem they will be were I go !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! more

Great service 8/3/2011

We had a great experience with A Action Transmissions Their associate Dan in particular, took out the guessing in what we needed done. Dan kept us informed on every aspect and was fast and efficent. We rely on our trucks to run smoothly and Dan got our truck back on the road in one, and its running like a champ. SO thank you Dan for helpping us keep our headachs down and our trucks run like new. more

Honesty and frankness to restore peace of mind to a client, is the slogan that a company such as this should have. For its commitment and dedication to customer satisfaction, giving the client the attention, respect and consideration that a job such as this require. Dan and his team gladly took care and resolved my problem quickly. I will not hesitate to recommend this company. I am the owner of a Ford Pick-up F150 A satisfied customer more

My new Heros A Action Transmissions 5/22/2011

After being told by my trusted mechanic he couldn't help me with my car problem because it seemed to be a transmission problem I was really worried...he refered me to a ""reliable"" shop called A Action Transmissions. He was RIGHT they ARE reliable...and service oriented, and truly interested in helping out their customers! Who knew a transmission problem could end up with such positive results! My car is running better than ever thanks to A Action Transmissions' detailed oriented professional staff. Ask for DAN the man :) he was great at sorting thru all the symptoms and getting things fixed. Really appreciate ALL the group at A Action - They were great - and I just had to brag about my experience!!! Thanks again! more

Great Service 1/19/2011

After losing my job recently. The last thing I needed was for my car to stop running. After looking on yellowpages, I found Aaction Transmissions.. They were nice enough to pick up my 2004 mustang and do a full diangostic, After finding the root of the problem, the team at Aaction quickly fixed my car at a reasonable price. Thanks, Travis more

Treated With Respect 1/12/2011

Have lived in S. Fl. for only 3 months and was undecided where to take my 1999 Expedition for transmission repair. I found Aaction Transmissions through the yellow pages and was pleasantly surprised with the courteous and professional phone response. They repaired my vehicle in a timely manner with what I thought was a fair price and most importantly I was treated with respect! Thank you Aaction!! more

Great Service 1/11/2011

Aaction Transmissions towed my 2005 Nissan Pathfinder to their shop. From the beginning they were great. They walked me through every step. Affordable, quick & professional. A coworker had referred me as she had a similar experience several months ago. Thanks to her & Aaction for making an otherwise situation into a pleasant one. more

FAST AND RELIABLE 1/11/2011

I have a 2002 C300 Mercedes Benz. My Transmission was not shifting correctly, and I went to Aaction Transmission in Hollywood because I was reffered by a close friend that had a great experience. The staff was very friendly and they gave me a fast and fair estimate. After my car was completed it ran perfectly. I would recommend Acction Better Built Transmissions as my first choice. I advise others to do the same. more

**WARNING** - Be Careful, Avoid Like the Plague 11/3/2010

I DON'T CARE HOW NICE THEY SOUND ON THE PHONE.\r \r I had 2003 Saturn Vue vehicle towed to A Action Better Built Transmissions for a transmission estimate.\r \r After the estimate came in too high, my wife and I paid for the estimate using a DISCOVER CARD in the amount of $599 + tax.\r \r The owner, Al Petrassi, then asked to purchase the vehicle from my wife and I since we purchased a replacement vehicle in lieu of the repair. We agreed on an amount of $500. A contract was signed and a check was made out to me in the amount of $500.\r \r Less than a week later, I received a lien letter in the mail from this company for an amount of more then $8,000+. They accused my wife and I of disputing the charge and selling a vehicle with a non-clear title.. They finally realized the disputed charge was for the same amount I paid, but was by a different customer on an AMERICAN EXPRESS. They had placed a lien on the wrong customer. In addition to the lien, they also canceled the check for payment of t more

**********WARNING********** Do not do business with them. 11/3/2010

I had 2003 Saturn Vue vehicle towed to A Action Better Built Transmissions for a transmission estimate. After the estimate came in too high, my wife and I paid for the estimate using a DISCOVER CARD in the amount of $599 + tax. The owner, Al Petrassi, then asked to purchase the vehicle from my wife and I since we purchased a replacement vehicle in lieu of the repair. We agreed on an amount of $500. A contract was signed and a check was made out to me in the amount of $500. Less than a week later, I received a lien letter in the mail from this company for an amount of more then $8,000+. They accused my wife and I of disputing the charge and selling a vehicle with a non-clear title.. They finally realized the disputed charge was for the same amount I paid, but was by a different customer on an AMERICAN EXPRESS. They had placed a lien on the wrong customer. In addition to the lien, they also canceled the check for payment of the vehicle. They also stated that a ""lien"" was held on the vehicle by Ally, which used to be GMAC. I've since gotten notarized letters mailed to the company and to myself from Ally stating that the vehicle is free and clear and that they hold no interest in the vehicle. The State Title Tag Agency says all they need to do is present the letters with the title and everything will be valid. I have given them the title so even though I have the letter, too, I can't clear it. However, the owner and his loyal employee will not return my calls or come to the phones to remedy this. All I am asking for is my $500 for the vehicle. They are very nice getting you into the shop, but not returning a customer's phone calls after threatening the customer with a bogus lien is unconscionable. All I am asking for is my money for the vehicle. I guess I have to go to small claims court and leave a review where ever I can so that others don't sell their vehicle or do business with Al and suffer the same repercussions I have. more

Excellent Service 4/7/2010

I was recommended to Aaction Transmission by my mechanic, I called and within an hour they picked up my vehicle from my house later that evening was told what needed to be done and a price. Next day I had my car running like it just came out of the factory. I have a 2000 Mercury Cougar and am very happy since I had the Transmission fixed. I Highly recommend Aaction Transmission for any work you need done on your vehicles transmission Pros: Fast,Reliable, they do what they say more

Can you say "Law Suit"! 5/4/2008

I can not imagine how this business is still in operation. They not only falsify themselves as being an honest company, they lead the unknowing consumer to falsely believe that their staff is accredited and licensed not to mention professional. My personal experience with this company was and is a nightmare. After having an independent AAA repair company and the B.B.B verify my suspicions, and after a huge amount of expenditures, the problem of repair was found out to not even have be transmissions related. How can companies like "Aaction Better Built Transmissions" sleep at night knowingly justify their unprofessional "Aactions" ! Do not patron this company! Buyer beware! more

not nice 6/25/2007

these people think others are ignirant. No morals! they are very bad. i would recommend to anyone to stayaway from this shop. try any shop before this one! Cons: allways overcharge, never do what is payed for and if the can they do any thing and take your money more

the Worse Ever 6/25/2007

I youn hate someone send them there! if all repair shops i have used this one is the worsed. they will lie to you and when you catch them they show you the Contract has no legal grounds. By using the wirds written on the back of the contract that shows they warrenty nothing; they will look to steal more money from you anyway they can. more
