New Rebuilt Used Transmissions

There are many differences between a new transmission, a rebuilt transmission and a used transmission. All have their good and bad points. At Dollar our main concern is getting you the highest quality at the lowest price.

Your vehicle's transmission should last for years. Of course, that assumes you are maintaining it properly throughout its life. You need to change the fluid and transmission filter on a regular basis. You also need to check your transmission fluid levels inbetween services to make sure that your fluid is not running low. Many peolple forget about the importance of checking their transmission fluid and as as result, their transmission fails long before it should. When this happens, their choices are limited to buying a new vehicle or replacing the failed transmission assembly.


While most people will not come across a time when they need to consider a used transmission, there are some instances where it is a must or where they just want to get more torque or general power out of their current car. It is overall cheaper than several repairs piled into one another, and it is much more affordable than buying a new or rebuilt transmission.

With the difficult economic times we live in today, many people are facing a tough decision. Your mechanic has delivered the bad news: the transmission in your trusty vehicle has just died. What do you do? Buying a new car and taking on years of added debt just isn't in your plans or your budget and yet you have got to have a car. Fortunately there is another option and it's not nearly as painful as a down payment and years of commitment would be. The answer you seek is both simple and complex. Replace the dead transmission with a quality used one.

This choice is simple because used transmissions are everywhere these days and it's as easy to find one as getting online. The choice becomes complex because you want to make sure that the used transmission you select is a quality transmission that has a many good years and miles left. The best way to ensure that you get a decent replacement transmission the first time.

The first thing to decide is how much money you are willing and able to spend on a replacement transmission. This will determine the answer to the next question. Is there a certain mileage you would be happier with? Keep in mind that the age of the vehicle will have a lot to do with how hard or easy it will be to find a transmission with the mileage you desire. Obviously the older the vehicle, the harder it will be to find a transmission with lower miles. That's not to say you can't find one, you just may have to look a little longer. Mileage and price tend to go hand in hand so if you decide to go with very low mileage, expect to pay for it.
