Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a mechanic that said it would cost $1,200.00 to rebuild my transmission and when
he took it apart he said its going to cost an additional $1,200.00 to finnish the job. That
doesn't seem right to me!!!

On Avg. most transmission to rebuild cost anywhere from $1500-$2500. depending on parts and labor. A new transmission is usually $3000-4000.

The transmission repair business is full of rip off scams. First and most importantly check out their reputation from people who should know. In my area I deal with ONE trans guy. He is one of the best and he stands behind his work. He has actually made cheap repairs instead of the usual " oh we dropped it and checked it out ,needs a complete rebuild".
