Transmission Replacement IN MESA, AZ
What to Expect When Replacing Your Transmission
Transmission replacement is a complex and, admittedly, big job. We will only recommend replacing your transmission if necessary for the integrity and safety of your vehicle. When determining if this is the best-course treatment for your car, our team at Friendly Auto Centers will consider its mileage, repair history, and overall condition. The more mileage your vehicle has, a transmission replacement is likely needed. On average, and if taken care of properly, automatic transmissions last 80,000 to 150,000 miles, while manual transmissions last a good 80,000 miles. If your transmission is notorious for requiring repairs, it may be best to replace it altogether. For example, a chronic issue or multiple different issues within a small timeframe will have us favoring replacement. Your car, truck, or SUV’s condition is also influential in deciding whether a new transmission makes sense. If your vehicle has over 150,000 miles and needs additional repairs, it may not be a smart investment. If the transmission is the only problem and your car runs perfectly otherwise, it may be a great investment.
