Remanufactured Transmissions vs Used Transmissions

Categories: Remanufactured

Used auto parts come in different forms. This blog will cover some options with Transmissions vs used transmissions.

At Central Auto Parts Carpartjunction, we specialize in providing used auto parts to both wholesale companies like body shops, garages, dealerships, etc., and the general public.  We work quickly to make sure we provide quality service, quality used auto parts, and quality on-time delivery.  When a transmission shop, garage, or dealer is looking for a replacement transmission, they will often compare two different products in planning which is a better value and fit for the customer’s vehicle.

Transfer case assembly

Central Auto Parts Carpartjunction has a warehouse full of quality tested used transmissions to fit a wide range of vehicles and trucks. Used transmissions are a very reasonable option when it comes time to replace a worn-out or defective transmission.  One of the major benefits of going with a used transmission is the cost.  Generally speaking, used transmissions will be 40%-60% less expensive than a new OEM unit.  This is often a savings of $2000-$4000 dollars…that ain’t chump change.  Used transmissions come in a wide range of distances, and a professional salvage yard should be able to find and provide the mileage that is right for your situation. Our transmissions come with a great official warranty and we even offer upgrades and a labor warranty as well.  Used transmissions are generally very positive because they were operational in a vehicle until it was in a collision.  So you know the function of the transmission on the road is tested and was working.  One of the drawbacks is that you don’t truly know the internal condition of a used transmission.  You don’t know how the previous owner maintained and cared for the vehicle and transmission, so there are potential problems in the unknown.  We find this to be a very small risk related to how well most used transmissions perform.

Central Auto Parts is proud to be a distributor of Certified Transmissions. Certified Transmission offers a complete chain of completely remanufactured automotive transmissions. Certified Transmission’s goods are remanufactured in the U.S.A. at plants in Omaha Nebraska and Fort Dodge Iowa. Certified Transmission’s products include the latest OE Updates and are backed by our industry-leading warranty security.  As a distributor for Certified Transmission, we can offer reduced pricing vs purchasing directly from the manufacture and we can service the transaction from start to finish and step in to help out at any time.

Some of the benefits of remanufactured transmissions are that thou essentially getting a “new” part at a reduced cost vs a new OEM transmission.  All of the wear parts and moving parts are eliminated and replaced during the remanufacturing process, everything is clean and repainted, and the product is essentially a reassembled new transmission.  Remanufactured transmissions also come standard with a longer, more hearty warranty than you would get with a used transmission.  Some of the disadvantages of a remanufactured transmission are that it will be more costly than a used transmission, and it has never actually operated inside of a moving vehicle.

Rebuilt transfer case

On average, remanufactured transfer case costs depending on the make and model of your vehicle. The cost of labor to install it is in addition to the price of the unit and will typically run between $400 and $800. Transfer cases can be purchased through Autozone and Advance Auto Parts.
