Transmission repair can be expensive when compared to other types of repairs, but it’s a good value when compared to the cost of buying a new car, or even when compared to the payments and depreciation on a new car. Transmission repair is a good investment in keeping your old car on the road, rather than taking on the expense of buying a new car.

Transmission Repair Cost Variables
There are many variables that will go into the cost of transmission repair for your car. Of course, the type of repair is the most important variable in the cost of your car, but there are others. Manual transmissions tend to be less expensive than automatic transmissions. In addition, the specific model of car and the type of transmission can make a big impact. High performance vehicles have finely engineered transmissions that can require more complex repairs, resulting in higher costs.
Often, the repair required is relatively minor. Transmission fluid changes may run $200 or less depending on the type of your car. Repairs not actually in the transmission are also relatively inexpensive.
Rebuilding a transmission is likely to be the most expensive type of transmission repair. It requires that the transmission be disassembled, cleaned, and warn parts replaced, then the entire thing put back together. Fortunately, when this is done by an AAMCO-certified technician, you know it will be done right. Learn about the Difference of an AAMCO-Rebuilt Transmission.
