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.
