Affordable Transmission Replacement

By Mister Transmission

Everyone wants to save money, especially on the cost of automotive repairs. Need a cost-effective transmission replacement option? Let our experts help you

When it comes to getting an affordable price for replacing your vehicle’s transmission, there is the upfront, out of pocket amount, and then there is the cost regarding vehicle performance. Replacing a transmission is tricky, difficult work. Determining what the long-term implications are on your vehicle after replacing the transmission is of equal concern, and it leads to questions about affordability and value for money.

The good news is by choosing the trained, certified, and experienced technicians at Mister Transmission to service your vehicle, you’ll be presented with a wide range of transmission repair options. Replacing your transmission – if warranted – is but one of them.

Before any technician can recommend a transmission replacement, they will have to go through a series of steps to remove and thoroughly inspect your malfunctioning transmission before making a diagnosis. If it comes to pass that a transmission replacement is recommended, you will need to decide on the type of transmission you want: a used transmission, a new, factory-built transmission, or a rebuilt transmission.

Making a Smart Repair Decision

Opting for a new transmission to replace a failing one may seem like the wisest choice, but it depends entirely on a myriad of factors including the age, make, and model of your vehicle, and whether or not a so-called “new” transmission is, in fact, new. More often than not, what many auto manufacturers classify as a new transmission is actually a rebuilt transmission. There are exceptions, but even if your new transmission is truly new, there’s no guarantee it’ll contain all the necessary updated parts.

By comparison, a rebuilt transmission can last as long as a new one, and it can be a cost-effective option. Concerning vehicle performance, as a rebuilt transmission will feature new gaskets, seals, and potentially other elements, its core components will remain in place. Thus, in all likelihood, it is the ideal transmission for your vehicle.

Used transmissions are unpredictable both in terms of longevity and how they will impact your vehicle’s performance. As a short-term solution, assuming you can locate the right transmission for your car, it is an economical option. However, whether or not it’s the best one comes down to deciding if you want to replace your used transmission with another used transmission.

Make Preventative Maintenance a Priority

While no mechanical or electronic device will last for all time, preventative maintenance and care are critical to extending the life and performance of almost anything, including your car’s transmission.

That includes having a certified technician perform an inspection of your transmission at regular intervals, and getting a transmission flush and filter change as recommended by your vehicle’s manufacturer.

Do you think your vehicle’s transmission needs to be replaced? Visit Mister Transmission for a professional assessment of the transmission repairs you may need. Contact the Mister Transmission service centre nearest to you.

Was convinced I had a transmission failure and was prepared for a big bill but they spent the time to diagnose that it wasn't transmission related. Let me know where to go with no charge. Very honest.

Colleen Whalley
Gary at North Bay transmission was amazing. My 2016 Rogue had some major issues. He was able to find a second hand one. These are common issues with the Nissans CVT transmissions. Which after speaking with Nissan doesn't seem to be a concern. Repairs all total $7600 plus rental $575. Gary ensured that i received their rate from Enterprise. It was suspected that the awd unit had leaks/issues. When I went back for the 10 day check after repair. It was confirmed the awd needed some repair. When I brought it back in for that repair. Gary did not charge me the cost of taking the unit out again. He absorbed the almost $600 i would have been charged. I was treated with respect and fairness! Their estimatex time frames for work completion were kept. Keep up the good work Mister Transmission in North Bay!

Renee Lauzon
It is a rarity when you come across an honest mechanic who puts looking out for your vehicles safety and longevity as well as the the owners best interests firsthand. Although I was not happy with the news that I received from Kris (honest mechanic) he did help me get my lemon (my SUV) on the road again and even offered to inspect my next used vehicle prior to purchasing it FOR FREE!!! When was the last time you received a diagnostic check on your vehicle without having to pay?I thought Kris was a straight forward, no BS, and very kind mechanic that everyone wit a vehicle needs!!! Thank you Mister Transmission, You are my newest BFF!!!🤗
