Rebuilt Ford Transmission vs Finding a used transmission
Opting for your Ford Explorer transmission to be rebuilt as opposed to a used ford transmission replacement offers many benefits. First and foremost, a ford transmission rebuild is a lower-cost alternative to a brand new ford transmission. Generally, a transmission rebuild will cost about half the money as a brand new transmission. Secondly, a transmission rebuild normally saves time. A vehicle undergoing a transmission rebuild will often times be ready after three or four days. A vehicle receiving a brand new transmission will often times be sidelined for over a week or more, depending on how quickly a brand new transmission is located, ordered, shipped, and installed. Lastly, a transmission rebuild replaces only those parts of a vehicle’s transmission that are severely worn or damaged, thus eliminating the overkill that results from replacing a transmission that is still in good shape, save for the broken or worn parts, with a new transmission. Plus, all of our Transmission Rebuilds come with a 3 year / Unlimited mile warranty — most used transmissions carry a simple 6 month or 1 year warranty at most.
