You're absolutely correct, its not worth pursuing the warranty. If they can't build it right the first time why bother the second.

Reason of review
Bad quality

Currently trying to get a claim on the 3rd trans.

Supposed to be a built transmission. It will not hold up to a stock 5.3 with 236000 mile on it I do not pull anything besides a 6×8 lawn mower trailer. This is the 2nd one. Waited 3+ months on this build and I wouldn't purchase a t-shirt from these people. Do not purchase anything from this company.

User's recommendation: Do not buy anything.

Charging frieght for a trans thats has not been installed yet.

Spent a lot of money for a trans that has not been installed yet, but the torque converter wont go in due to the ft pump seal spring popped out and got lodged between the torque converter and pump bushing. There making me pay for the shipping so they can look at it. It came off the pallet that way. Never again will we purchase from this company. We push 150 cars out of this shop a month.

Complete SCAM! Total FRAUD!

Monster Transmission - Complete SCAM! Total FRAUD!
it's a complete SCAM, there is no performance transmission, no master builders, no performance parts, no rigorous testing. Complete garbage, didn't get 100 miles out of this junk. They spray paint trash and tie it to a shipping palette. Save your money and save aggravation, go to a local transmission shop. Monster is based in Florida, which is second only to Nigeria when it comes to internet scams, avoid any merchant doing business out of Florida you will get nothing! Check out the facebook page dedicated to all the complaints as well as the BBB website with over 600 cases filed. Run away don't look back you will regret doing business with these criminals. AVOID AT ALL COST

User's recommendation: Avoid at all cost!

We are going to court, they have a Professional team of Trained Females that have Not A CLUE

They sent me a Transmission That took three Months and it Never Worked and Blamed Three Other Companies and Those Large Companies Say They Are Full of Scammers and Crooks without Supervision, Proved The Company itself is Wrong, Should Not have FEMALE CALL REPS AT A CALL CENTER RUNNING COMPANY, if i could Call the Owner, HE COULD SAVE HIS COMPANY, MANAGER IS MENTALLY SICK IN THE HEAD, and a Complete Weirdo calling Himself a Rep for a Corporation, He thinks he is Nike or CocaCola in China or Something

User's recommendation: DO NOT CALL MONSTER TRANSMISSION, THEY ARE EVIL AS *** ITSELF.

They're liers the sales people told me that I needed to prepay shipping for the core

They charged for shipping on core and won't take the core back. Now I am out close to a thousand bucks and I have a core transmission in the middle of my garage!

User's recommendation: Get transmission service from local shops don't buy online.
