I got an estimate for a rebuilt transmission to replace the one in the car that went up after only 75,000 miles. For a Toyota, that is not good. They are supposed to be reliable. $3600 seem like an awful lot for this small car. Can anyone let me know if this is a fair price or not? Thank you.

PEP boys removed and replaced my trans. that I had rebuilt. Works fine but pulls to the left. They said that they have to remove the rack to take out the trans. and thought that I declined the alignment option. Is it true that the rack had to be removed or was it just easier?

My daughter was using my car and she said the car just wouldn't go and she had it towed in to Darien Tire & Auto in Darien, IL because that was the closest shop and the tow truck took it there. I don't know if this shop is good or if they are overcharging me. They are putting in a rebuilt transmission for $1800. Is that too much?

Life of transmission
Amount: $0.00
Posted by: Red2456 in cranston, RI.Posted: April 29th, 2009 07:04AM
Car Make: AcuraCar Model: MDX
I have a 2001 MDX (single owner - me) that had it's original transmission replaced right around the time of the expiration of the original warranty. Was making noises; dealer looked at it and replaced it for free so my guess was there was a design flaw as this was the 1st year Acura made an SUV.

It has been running great since but recently the check engine light went on and they think only a sensor needs replacing. if that does not work, they say I'll need a new transmission.

My Q is this - shouldn't a transmission last more than 5 years and perhaps 50,000 miles or is there no hard/fast rule? If I do have it replaced, is there generally some warranty period associated with it to protect your investment at least a while? Thanks.

This is the quote for labor/new transmission (tax not included). The car is in excellent condition with 100,000 miles just coming up and we bought it in 2005. Question: Should we proceed with a new transmission or consider another used car that would be an unknown factor given the price range we want $6000.00. We are retired and easy driving. I have taken care of the Buick and it is a luxury model, leather, etc.
Dealer mechanic says car reflects good maintenance and looks good. Any input will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
