Lkq Corporation - Transmission Rip Off
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.....
Review about: Transmission.
Reason of review: Not as described.
Monetary Loss: $3000.
I liked: Customer service.
I didn't like: New valve body required needs advertised.
