Repair or Rebuild: Which is Better?
When it comes to transmission issues or your transmission going out you are really stuck with only two options, do you repair or do you rebuild? Ultimately you need to take a few things into consideration before making the decision.
Your budget plays a big factor when it comes to repairing or rebuilding a transmission. You first need to get it to shop so that they can give you an idea of what is wrong. If it is going to be anything too drastic, keep in mind that a repair you have to pay not only for the labor but for the parts as well. If too many parts are messed up it can end up costing you more to repair everything broken than it would just to get it rebuilt.
Often a transmission repair won’t come with a warranty. A warranty is definitely something you want to consider. After all, you don’t want to repair your transmission just for it to mess up again and be out of pocket again. With a transmission rebuild, you typically get a 3-year warranty that should cover any mess up concerned with the transmission.
Asking a professional transmission repairman their opinion can often be your best bet. There are shops out there that will tell you what is best for your situation and not just try to take your money. The professionals know what they are looking at and will be able to tell you the extent of your damage. You never know, it could just be a small repair and you won’t be without your transmission for very long.
