Transmission repair shops can save you money. Let’s explain how.
Transmission Repair Shops: Experts in the Field
A lot of people think that when they take their car into a repair facility, that the transmission repair will happen at the same facility. However, that’s not always the case. A lot of shops for example either do not have the personnel or the tools to effectively fix a unit, so guess what they do? They farm out all of their power train repairs to another shop that can do the repair.
There is a rule in place that determines how much it will cost to repair your transmission. The more that a vehicle part changes hands, the greater your labor charges will be. The more your labor charge is the more the overall total of your repair is also going to be. So, when you add gas mileage, you can see your repair bill go up by $100 or even more.
Why a Transmission Repair Shop Saves You $$$
Naturally, if all of the repairs happen in-house, there are no fuel surcharges, or any labor above the standard rate. So it makes your bill lower. And when you’re dealing with a transmission repair, they can be quite expensive. A transmission is an important component of your car, and also it is one of the most expensive components as well. A new transmission can be as high as $5000 depending on the type of vehicle. Even rebuilt ones can be around $1800. So, you want to keep your costs down where transmission repair is concerned. One of the best ways however, is to follow your car manufacturer’s recommended schedule.
Transmissions need regular service. Look up your regularly scheduled service schedule. When in doubt, check the Internet. If you can’t find any information out there, a good rule of thumb is the 15K rule: namely, service your transmission every 15,000 miles.
