Cottman Transmission Remington Virginia

Complaint: My van broke down on a Monday night. I only had $60.00 on me , so I called Cottman’s because it was a familiar name and I presumed they were reputable because they are a nationwide chain, and they offered free towing.That was my first mistake. While on the phone with the center manager, I explained that the transmission had gone out. It wouldn’t go in reverse. He suggested a RID or something like that for $85.00 to determine what the problem was exactly.I said okay . Mistake number 2. I live from payday to payday, have no savings or credit card,but that’s my problem. I asked if they thought the repairs would be more or less than $1000.00 and the manager said he “couldn’t say for sure””. I asked how much it would be if I had to get a whole new transmission and he said he “”couldn’t say for sure “”. Now I had a similar vehicle that was 4 yrs. older and needed a transmission and it cost me $500.00 total. So I figured it would be somewhere around a $1000.00. When I called them to find out what they found out

Address: I was told that they had taken the transmission apart

Website: and that I owed them $565.00 for what they had done so far. I magine my shock when they said the total cost of repairs would be $2800.00 on a van only worth $2200.00. What kind of place would even start working on a car if they knew the repairs were more than what the car is worth ?So far they have had it 31 days and it’s not done yet.I had to pay them $1600.00 before they would even order the parts

Phone: that reverse and first were gone
