Rebuilt Transmission Prices in Charlotte NC

 
So you think you have a Transmission problem...
Car won't move? Check Engine Light on? Trouble Shifting Gears?
These are all common symptoms of a transmission problem. That means you may need a transmission repair or possibily a complete transmission overhaul, called a "Transmission Rebuild".

First..What are my Options?
Rebuilt Transmission Vs Used Transmission

There are many benefits to a Rebuilt Transmission vs Used Transmission:

1) A Rebuilt Transmission has all new internal parts (although it still remains in the old transmission case)
2) Soft parts such as gaskets, seals, filters, valves and clutch components are replaced in a rebuilt transmission if needed
3) Rebuilt transmissions are tested and carry a longer warranty than any used transmission

Rebuilt Transmission Repair charlotte ncUnlike Rebuilt Transmissions, a Used Transmission is a transmission that has been in a car for a certain number of miles, but is currently not in a vehicle -- commonly sold online or found in a junk yard. Used transmissions usually carry 30 day warrantys or no warranty at all. Used transmissions are typically sold "as is" and may have weak internal parts which may lead to another transmission problem down the road.

There are a certain amount of labor hours and parts that go into a Transmission Rebuild. The amount of labor hours vary based upon your type of vehicle. The parts the need to be rebuilt in the transmission may also vary depending on the shop that rebuilds your transmission.

What to Ask or Look for in a Rebuilt Transmission Price

* Transmission Solenoid: Beware of auto repair shops that state you may only need a solenoid replaced. Many Rebuilt Transmission shops will price a solenoid replacement at a very low cost, just to get someone in their door.

Reputable rebuilt transmnission shops like Twin Automotive & Transmission will include the solenoid in their rebuilt transmission pricing.

* Customer Testimonials: Don't be shy to ask for customer testimonials or look online for reviews of the rebuilt transmission shop.

* Rebuilt Transmission Warranty: Twin Automotive & Transmission offers Charlotte's LONGEST Transmission Rebuild Warranty. Be weary of shops that only offer warranties 6 months to a 1. The industry standard for minor repairs are between 1 - 3 years. Rebuilt Transmissions are a major repair. The shop performing the transmission rebuild should be able to stand behind their work with a minimum 2 - 3 year warranty.
