Purchased a recycled transmission for my wife's 2006 CLK500 Mercedes from LKQ Corp. After following all warranty instructions, having Mercedes dealership install it, the trans didn't work at all.
Paid an estimate of $630. to have Mercedes check a tube on the valve body only to find that the used valve body can't be reflashed and must be replaced for an additional $2800.00! LKQ refuses any return or warranty options because you can't return after it's been installed and the warranty has a disclaimer (unless the manufacture requires valve body replacement).
My question is, where on their website does it state THIS TRANSMISSION WILL NOT WORK WITHOUT SPENDING 3 TIMES THE AMOUNT YOU PAID FOR IT)!!! I am sure I'm not the only person who has had to find this out the hard way.....
This person wrote the review because of not as described of transmission from Lkq Corporation and attached photo s. Reviewer claimed that he or she lost $3000 and wants Lkq Corporation to read this review and look into the issue (if any).
The most disappointing in user's experience was new valve body required needs advertised. Author liked the most customer service. The author asks this business to immediately contact him/ her to briefly discuss his/ her negative experience with the company.
