USED TRANSMISSIONS: SHOULD YOU BUY One?
You think that to be smart with your money, to save more than you spend, the best way to do it is buying a used transmission. But let me tell you, you get what you pay for. In other words, buying a used transmission is never a good idea, why?
First, you have to know, that many suppliers don’t offer warranties, that means you have no idea what was wrong with the transmission when you bought it. You have no way of knowing if it will work as you want it too. You may have trouble with used transmissions, such as transmission slippage while driving or the transmission popping back to neutral. It could develop grinding noises that you aren’t used to hearing and the clutch could stay engaged and cause massive problems that you don’t want to have to deal with.
Many people think buying a used transmission will help them to save money, because depending on the model they can spend between 550-1100 dollars. Instead of buying a new or manufactured one will that cost more than triple that, however, they are wrong because used transmissions can damage other parts of the vehicle, which will cost you more time and money in the long run. Why not just go with a new transmission and save yourself the hassle?
Also, there are so many different used transmissions on the market today, that you might very well buy the wrong make and model for the car you love.
So, my advice to you does not buy a used transmission because it will be a headache and cost you more in the end. For more information on Transmissions, contact the folks at Twin Transmission today. The experts there will be happy to help you with all your transmission needs.
