No, because there will be no work order tied to the new vehicle.
All of the work is done on the work order tied to the customers
vehicle. And I don't know what exactly will be done with the
truck, they may sell it for less and call it a "demo" unit. I've seen
that done before.
That "Remanufactured" unit is done By the good people that make them
transmissions(GM Powertrain, Hydramatic devision). They are known as
S.R.T.A.'s (Service Replacement Transmission Assembly). They usually OUT
LAST the cars or trucks they are installed in. In the last 12 years I
have sold over 700 USED GM automatic transmissions. I have never had a
S.R.T.A. come back, or a complaint about one.
I have had 3 New cars that needed transmission repair at a dealership.
All TH440's of differnt flavors(FWD buicks). 2 were warranty repairs,
one was due to loaning a car to a morron. The first time they gave me a
S.R.T.A., and I had no problem. The second car I got a great rebuild at
a local dealer. The third had to be done twice. It was rebuilt at a
local dealer, and went out while out of town. I took it to a dealer in
where I was and it was rebuilt again. That rebuilt worked better then
the transmission did with 6 miles on the car.
What it comes down to is: Some guys at dealerships are artists at
rebuilding transmissions. Some shouldn't touch one, others are just ok.
Some dealers care about their service departments reputation more then
others. Usually evident by willingness to correct a repair done under
warrantee again after warrantee for part cost.
