Don't buy from Monster Transmission

Don't by any products from Monster Transmission&Performance. I just bought a transmission from them and had it installed. The transmission caught on fire and did not *** into certain gears.

When they got the bad transmission back the said nothing was wrong with. now they refuse to take care of the repair bill. This company screws you of your money and their product are junk.

I highly recommend you stay away from this company and the junk products they supply. Don't waste your money with these clowns.Monster Transmissions&Performance is a joke the people their don't care about there customers or their vehicles .

I was thinking about purchasing a transmission from them. But after reading all the bad reviews, they seem like nothing more than a shady fly by night shade tree conartists. I will never by a transmission from them ever

I ordered a gasket/seal kit,and transfer case chain from monster. it took monster transmission a week from the time I placed my order to figure out what chain too send me. after 3 weeks of waiting, I received my order. the chain ended up being the wrong chain,so I found the right one locally. monster transmission now wants me to pay for the return shipping,in addition to a 25 percent restocking fee. I regret buying parts from monster transmission, and will never do so again.

I can't wait to buy a 1000 hp kit for my srt8 charger and for all of you who are scared to buy a tranny from them buy the rebuild kit it's the cheapest and best around an then you can have a shop install it an you don't have to worry about damage during shipping or the tranny not working!!!! I've looked everywhere and there kits are the best!

When I ordered my 4l60 I received some other customers 700r4. I finally got the right one but never the correct paperwork. Now I have my 4l60E with some guys 700r4 paperwork. Also, the stall converter is not 2800 as I ordered.

I have read a lot of negative reviews regarding Monster Transmission, and I feel they are getting a bit of a bad wrap. I just recently dealt with them on parts for my 700R4 conversion on my 56 Chevy. They were great and friendly to deal with and very knowledgeable regarding the parts I would need. I even had a part that I didn't need, so I called them up and they issued me an RMA# and had me send it back with no hassle. I will not hesitate to deal with them again in the future.

I bought a 3200-3500 stall converter and first launch stalled 5k shifted and the tack never moved major blow by. I have been on the phone with them for months. They will not give me a refund and will only send me another junky converter. I talked to three different girls in two-days. none knew what was going on. I could hear a guy in the background telling them what to say. Amy, Kelly. Cory or cody. What a joke, wasted money.

Wow, I have done business with this company for years. I have had no problems, bought so many transmissions for my shop, and had unending phone consults. The guy who had a fire had a fluid leak on his headers, right? There is no other way to start a fire with a transmission install. I have been rebuilding transmissions for 40 years, getting old, finding it easier on myself to order a better product. I am sure I have built 1500 transmissions in my career,returns happen, wish I could affort a $150,000 transmission dyno. You guys need to grow up, take some responsibility for your own screwups.

Monster Transmission is a HUGE JOKE. They talk about how great there product is and how great there HANDSHAKE warranty is. Bought a 700R4 from them that did not work right on the 1st test drive. (I am a ASE master technician for 30 years). They never did take care of it, only one excuse after another. Save you money and buy from a reputable company !!!!!

I've built c4, c6, 5r55e, axod, 4l60e, 4l80e, th350, th400 and zf transmissions. What I don't understand is why you have to purchase the ATF fluid from them? Yes certain vehicles "imports for the most part" are very fluid specific and you have to buy ATF from the manufacture but a c4 or a th350? Sounds like a money making strategy to me. If their gonna overcharge me on fluid i can only imagine how far bent over I'd get on a transmission! Go get the local shop to rebuild your existing transmisson for a fraction of the price

I'm gonna directly call out monster transmissions right now and say their "no finger pointing policy" is utter ***, they immediately blame you if you're not ase certified and refuse to replace the bad transmission they sent you. They seem to have forgotten about the people who work on cars as a hobby who have all the experience needed just without certification. Tired of seeing them lie about that,

Dont, just buy a 4L80e these 4L60e's are a piece of ***. I have rebuilt mine twice already and now I am buying a 4L80e. Read the reviews on the 4L60 you will see what I am talking about.
