I know I am getting totally ripped and there is nothing I can do because Goodyear credit card my only way to pay. I just can't understand why a company would want to rip a customer off so badly.

I have taken very good care of my Jeep but at 86,400 miles with absolutely no indication my transmission gave out. Who else has had this problem? Also, I am having a hard time finding out if this is normal for this type of vehicle.

car was always dealer maintained, all of a sudden service eng, soon light comes on, dealer service manager tells me within an hour that my transmission is going to fail soon, car shifted fine,and no problems at high speed, had transmission oil changed at 79,000klm .I being a heavy eqwipment mechanic has a better knowledge of what to look for than the average Joe and i know that it should last more than 50,000 miles, (past experiance with other GM"s). This really leaves a sour taste in my mouth.

I have Honda Accord 2001, and had just found out my transmission needs to be replaced for 2K, mechanic even suggested that I retire the car with the city for 1K. What's funny, is the transmission on my Honda was recalled, aparently I had a 7 yr warranty and the transmission was suppose to be replaced for FREE but I was not aware of it so now I am stuck with fixing All these problems(recalls) or retiring a beautiful car after 9 yrs of use! Very dismayed and disappointed, as I bought the car new for 25K

the RPM of my corolla has been going past 5 on several instances when i do 60+ miles on the fwy. called my mechanic, he said my transmission may be slipping aolready. he took a look at it, and did a test drive and couldn't find anything wrong. it's $155k miles already, and its a 2003 corolla. i don't know how much to expect if i replace/rebuild this, and if i should consider getting a used / new car instead, as i was also told i will need to change all 4 tires and shocks soon.

I am not getting any help from Honda. I have 2003 Odyssey that had recall on transmission. They want 95.00 to look at transmission that had been recalled. I don't understand how they can charge for something they were supposed to fix to begin with. I only have 71000k miles on it and no help from dealership. Is that how they treat customers how pay cash in full when driving car off the lot? My extended warrenty went till 01/10/2010 or 75000k miles. But seriously.... it was recalled and they should at least look into it without charging the customer.

I had a Ford Explorer before year 2000 transmission when out at 130K, rebuild was about 3,000.00. Now this (Ford) high end product went out at 100,550 miles, and yes all scheduled main. was done, per the manual. This is why my next car is a Honda or Toyota, non bail out companies that make products the last more than 5 or 6 years.

I thought that the problem with the car refusing to move would be solved by only replacing the transmission fluids but realized that the entire transmission had to be replaced. And the cost was difficult to swallow, until I saw this website.

The transmission was used and came from a self serve recycling yard.
It only took a couple of weekends to complete the job, and was a great learning experience as well.

Car Make: KiaCar Model: Rio, year 2000 model
Auto Shop: Lynnhaven Kia
I have never had any trouble with the transmission on my Kia Rio, which I bought brand-new ten years ago for $9,000. Reason? It's a manual transmission. And I have followed the factory-recommended maintenance schedule for 10 years. Maintenance is critical. Don't be penny-wise and pound-foolish. It's no fun dropping $400 or more every 15K-to-30K on the factory-recommended maintenance, but guess what, my El Cheapo car is running fine. I have driven all over the midwest and southwest, some desolate areas, and my Rio held up and never stranded me. I use the dealership for all maintenance including even oil changes. People scream that dealerships rob you. Well, what I've found is the opposite, that the dealership service dept. does good work while the small auto repair shops mess you over. And lastly, I say it's better to buy a new cheap car then a used cheap car. You buy a used cheap car and you get all the problems the former owner created. You buy a new cheap car and it has a warranty.

My transmission will cost $4100 including the torque converter. This is considered a heavy duty/performance build to handle the torque & horsepower in my Cummins diesel. I almost had a heart attack when quoted the price. Why can't Dodge put a transmission that lasts longer then 100K miles. I was lucky to get the 100K. Guys have had to replace transmissions as low as 40K miles

Most of the reason why people pay so much for there vehicles to get fix is that they don't take care of them. If you do the proper maintenance on your vehicle you wont have the large repairs that you have. There is no reason why you cant catch things before they happen. Transmission problems well have started way before they transmission dies. Oil Leaks are a first sighs of engine problems. Or even a different haze of smoke out of your tail pipe. If people would check there vehicles once a week for signs of issues and noses they would save themselves a lot of money. People need to realize there vehicles need to be maintained, and not to expect them just to work. And people also need to realize that when you buy a used vehicle you are buying someone else s problem. That means you need to face the reality that you are going to have to fix something. That is why you get the USED car inspected before you buy it. Come on people this is not rocket science.

I was traveling through Chattanooga returning home to Illinois when my engine light came on. The codes read problems with the transmisssion so I stopped at Mastertek Transmissions and was told I needed the transmission rebuilt and it would take 4 days and $2862. 19 days later I recieve a phone call telling me I need to sign a document stating that I'm getting a computer for no charge in order for the shop to release the Jeep to me. After reading through the document, I discover: 1-the computer is used, 2-they recinded the warranty, and 3-it is a waiver of my rights to seek damages for their negligence while working on the Jeep. "Transmission repair $3314.54 & in return for customer to take this vehicle as-is full and final settlement we never have to see or here about the vehicle again".

My husband took my car to get an oil change at Firestone. They told him I needed my transmissions look at and he took it to A+ transmissions. These guys lied to us about everything. From when he left the car they closed early and everything. They broke my transmission down without permission. They told me they where going to do everything on my budget. When they got threw my cost went from$400 to $2,500. I was so mad. My transmission was not that bad. They rebuilt my transmission with the same parts I had. My car is worser than it was before my husband took it to them. Is there anything I can do. I know they screwed me. I just want to take it to someone or a diffrent branch to get my car fixed. Every time you press the gas to pull off the car jerks and when it switch gears it jerks. Wasn't even doing that at first.

Sounds a little high, but when your car isnt running and you need it done asap, what else can you really do. The car was slipping: meaning engine would rev up and not go, puddles of oil in garage. car was a mess.
