Not resolved

In January, I posted that Josh at Monster Transmission was going to take care of some of the expenses that we had to pay due to their faulty transmissions (we received 2...servo popped out of the side of the first one and broke the case, lost 3rd gear on the way home with the second one...finally had someone else fix it at our expense. My original complaint is under the user name Jennifer.) Oh, and the first tranny had the wrong converter!

I did not "jump the gun" by posting my original complaint, it was only after Monster said they would do nothing. After posting, I got an email from Josh saying he wanted to help. When I called they offered me $250 if I would remove my complaint. I refused....after negoiating, we reached an agreement for $800. I could not remove my complaint, so I posted that they were helping me (I could not, in good conscience, lie and recommend them or say they are a good company. They are a transmission company and I received two bad tranmissions and they only offered help after complaining on here).

I have yet to receive anything from them and I won't. After not hearing from them, I called. Josh offered me $1000 to remove my complaint. He said that they had taken care of everyone who posted complaints on here. I explained that complaints could not be removed and that the other customers didn't remove their complaints, so I should be taken care of too. He said he would see what he could do. After not hearing from him, I called and was told that there had not been any updates on my file, that he would check on it. After not hearing from him again, I called and told him I wanted an answer that day or I would be updating here. I never heard back from him.

All they care about is saving their reputation. They only claimed they would help after my original post and since I can't remove it, they won't do anything. They make bad transmissions and they don't stand behind what they build. As I said before, the warranty is useless if you have to keep paying to have the trannys removed and installed. I recommend buying from a tranny from a shop that is local, that builds and installs it...that way if there is a problem, they can be responsible for pulling and fixing or replacing. I lost half of my motor warranty with the car sitting through all the tranny issues....lost alot of money for repair and installs....alot of time hauling the car back and forth to my mechanic (which is 2 hours away). Run from these people!!!!!

I feel your pain bro. I gave them ~$2400 for the biggest baddest tranny I could stuff in my Silverado and it lasted about a month before the converter broke, taking out the pump with it. It's supposed to handle 650HP and I'm not even close to 400HP!

I called and tried to explain what happened both to the installers and to monster transmission and neither of them would step up to help. They pointed fingers at each other. Monster transmission said it was installed improperly and the shop that installed it had a master certified technician install it. Both are saying that they are experts and incapable of making mistakes. Bu!!***. Anything mechanical can fail and people are not infallible - I don't care how many certifications they have! I ended up sending them the transmission (at my cost) so they could inspect it. They said the same thing - it was installed wrong. Seems like a scape goat for all their customers - "It was installed wrong so we don't have to pay for any warranty work/parts." I paid them another $834 to fix it and ship it back to me. And now I am sitting here waiting for over 4 days now for them to ship it out and its still sitting on their docs. WTF!

The only reason why I went with these guys over a local shop was because of all the praise they got from the TV shows I watch (Power Block TV, Gears, Truck U, 2 Guys Garage). I hope they paid a lot of money for the advertisement time because they are not going to keep any customers with the poor customer service.

Next time I will buy local.
