Twin Automotive, known as Charlotte’s Transmission King and charlotte rebuilt transmission specialist, explains why a transmission rebuild can save you more money than buying a used transmission:
For over 30 years, Twin Automotive Charlotte customers have asked, what can save me more money — a used transmission or a rebuilt transmission? The answer comes easily when the facts about a used transmission are revealed.
A Used transmission is a transmission that was originally inside another vehicle and used for a certain amount of miles before it was removed. Most used transmissions are sold online or found at a junkyard. The biggest common misconception about used transmissions is that buying a used transmission will save you money. In the short time, it may save you since a used transmission is usually cheaper than a rebuilt transmission, but in the long run, that used transmission with its xxxxxx amount of miles, wear and tear, will fail—costing you additional on transmission repairs or forcing you to do what you should have done before and have the transmission rebuilt.
Why will a used transmission fail? Since used transmissions already carry a certain amount of miles before being installed in your vehicle, the internal parts already carry wear and tear, meaning they could break and cause significant transmission problems at any time. When a transmission fails, a rebuilt transmission can be done — this process entails removing the failed transmission from the vehicle, opening it up, inspecting all internal parts, replacing any broken or worn parts and then rebuilding the transmission with new transmission fluids. To put it simply, when you purchase a used transmission, you are most likely just buying some time till that transmission will fail, just like your previous one did.
Most used transmissions also come with a 30 day warranty or sold as is. Charlotte’s Transmission King, Twin Charlotte, offers a 3 year / Unlimited Mile warranty on all rebuilt transmission repairs. When it boils down to saving money, the right decisionis to always spend money wisely the first time by investing in the future, not just for the moment.
