HOLT TRANSMISSION SERVICES

in North Charleston, SC

Can suck my ass.

they zip tied the driveshaft to the u-joint on the rear end of the 86 camaro when they "installed" the trans. on top of that, they didnt even put any fluid into the converter or trans after the install.... probably because they didnt install the fluid lines or the trans cooler.... on top of that, (according to Marcus) they charged 600 bucks for this install, didnt give a reciept of the services, and said they had to get "extra parts" from LKQ (local junk yard across the road). come to find out, they didnt install the shifter linkage bracket. and they never bolted the trans mount to the cross member.



































back story:

Josh was out of the state for a few weeks and our so called "friend" (Marcus) offered to tow the car to get the trans installed. I and Josh told Marcus to just take the car to the shop that built the trans as plans were to have them install it from the beginning. A few days later the car is parked back on base with mine and the trans is installed. I should have checked the rest out after we saw that they didnt install the fluid lines. the trans is working great, tho I/we do plan on bringing the car into you to adjust the TV cable.

the good thing is that Josh was only rolling about 3mph when the driveshaft let go.

I pulled the car out originally, and was circling the parking lot and gave it a little gas and it started clanking, Josh went to pull it into a spot to check things out and it let go as he was parking it.

(side note.... Marcus told me back when he had his manual 240SX that he wanted to put a 3500 stall converter in it. retard.)

called my lawyer yesterday, sent him the pics and vids. he is currently trying to contact Marcus who is overseas at this moment to get his side of the story.

as it turns out, Josh had given Marcus some money to tow the car to the trans shop where the trans was built. during the same time frame that the trans was "installed" in the car, Marcus starts driving a 2008 Colorado. when I asked him how much he put down for a down payment (cus I knew he couldnt handle money worth a crap) he says $600.00. the same amount that his "friends" charged to install the trans with no reciept. so now, the lawyer is going to be requesting transaction records from the trans shop as well as from the dealer that Marcus got the truck from. stay tuned.

actually he got a 2005 GMC Sierra,
my bank statement showed that holt charged $115.88, but there was a $500, to marcus that he said holt wouldn't take the whole thing in a check,

i asked about his new truck he told me he put 0 down and i thought he told you he put $500 down not $600

zip ties

Hey guys I am the owner of Holt Transmission Service. I have 3 shops and don't do work like that.

I told Marcus that the drive shaft was tie strapped up, I ordered 3 sets of straps for the rear joint and they were all wrong. So I told Marcus that the drive shaft was tie strapped up only for towing purporses and that he needed to locate the correct straps for the rear joint....That was also noted on the invoice that the owner of the camaro never recieved from Marcus.

If anybody ever has a complaint all they have to do is call me and I will make it right! I NEVER recieved a call about this!!

2 years later...



The owner of the car was overseas when this work was performed. You never had written permission by the owner to wrk on the car.


Not to mention, calling a customers car an "abomination" to his face is definately NOT the way to further your business.
