Lee’s Summit is now home to a new AAMCO Transmission and Total
Car Care, located at 321 SE Douglas close to the downtown business
The building opened in what was once the location of Cooper’s
Auto and is owned by Tim Cooley. Cooley opened two AAMCO franchises in 2009, one in Merriam, Kansas and the other in South Kansas City.
The Merriam store relocated to Overland Park last August,
and Cooley explains he had been planning to move the South Kansas City
location for some time as well.
“My first choice was to move to Lee’s
Summit because I felt Lee’s Summit was a great community with a vibrant
and growing population,” he said. “When the old Cooper’s Auto location
opened up I felt I finally had the perfect place to move my store to.”
Cooley, a graduate of Arizona Automotive Institute, began his
career as a technician in the same location that later became his own
AAMCO center in south Kansas City. He was ASE certified in
transmissions, brakes, steering, suspension and engine repair.
staff boasts similar qualifications. Customer service is paramount, he
said. “I believe in friendly courteous customer service, accurate
repair diagnostics, fair pricing, quality repair, and outstanding
warranty,” he explained. “I stand behind my repairs and whenever there
has been any conflict with a customer I strive to resolve the issue in a
fair, courteous manner.”
AAMCO covers all automotive repairs, but transmission repair and
service is among their most common. In addition, AAMCO covers air
conditioning repair, brake replacement, tune-ups, check engine light diagnoses,
and engine repair and replacement.
Other popular services include
timing belt replacement, water pumps, radiator repair as well as shocks,
struts, ball joint replacement and differential repair. AAMCO offers
nationwide warranties good at over 650 AAMCO Centers across the country.
AAMCO services foreign and domestic models. “We honor all
extended warranties,” Cooley said. Customers can expect honest and
courteous customer service from certified technicians who are
transmission and total car care experts.
Currently, the new Lee’s
Summit Location is running a free air conditioning inspection and
offering a coupon for $10 off any oil change service for all cars and
trucks through the end of May.
As a local owner of a national franchise Cooley explained his employees and suppliers are local but his services
come with the backing of national brand standards and nationwide
warranties. “We provide a service to the community and want our
customers to feel special,” he said. “Establishing relationships with
our customers is very important to me.”
