used transmissions vs rebuilt charlotte nc

When your transmission starts giving you a hard time, there usually aren’t many options, especially if the transmission has caused your vehicle to lose gears or it will not move. Two options are to either A) have the transmission rebuilt or B) buy a used or remanufactured transmission.

Though both the solutions are viable, the best choice is to rebuild the transmission. Rebuilding your transmission is one of the only ways to ensure that broken and worn parts are replaced to restore the transmission to a “like new” condition. Used transmissions, as well as remanufactured transmissions, can be a pricy path to take, as well as risky. Here are three reasons why rebuilding your transmission is a better idea than buying used:


1. Cost Efficiency
A rebuilt transmission is cost-efficient and time-efficient at the same time. When you purchase a used transmission, most likely this was one of many transmissions found inside a vehicle at a junkyard. Most used or remanufactured transmissions come with a low warranty or no warranty at all. Our transmission rebuilds always come with the longest warranty available – 3 Years / Unlimited Miles. A used transmission that fails after only 6 months to a year after installing will cause you to start at the beginning for another transmission, or finally a rebuild.

2. Assurance
When your transmission is rebuilt, we disassemble the entire unit. We look through each part, clean all the parts, replace any worn or broken parts and add new transmission fluid. A transmission rebuild will return your transmission to a ‘like new’ condition. When buying a used transmission, you are buying a unit that could be in worse condition than your already broken unit, or may have parts inside that are already broken, worn or damaged.

3. Warranty
Every transmission we rebuild comes with Charlotte NC’s best Transmission Rebuild Warranty. Your warranty is covered for 3 Years / Unlimited Miles. This is very different from the warranty or lack of warranty that may come with a used transmission unit.

By and large, the pros of having a transmission rebuilt outweigh the risk of buying a used or remanufactured transmission.
