I did not represent it for anything other than what I said.
I told the guys to rebuild the transmission and that's what they
me. I did not give them a price range, neither did I say put the
cheapest crap in there and just get it to work and make it off the
lot. The people who did the work have worked on two of my cars in
the past and I've never had a problem with their work. This is a
private shop that mainly deals in transmission work.
I did not go down there and say give me the $2,000 special........
I did look around to see what some of the on-line rebuilt
transmissions cost like
TCI and B&M and I did price the work at a different location.
I did see where some shops are charing around $1,500 or more.
The shop pulled the transmission, "rebuilt" it, and re-installed the
transmission. Beyond that I don't specifically know what they did, I
was not physically present when the job was done.
I do see on the invoice a trans rebuild kit and some hard parts listed
along with a torque converter.
I'm telling you what happened and what I paid.
Maybe your idea of rebuilding the transmission means something else I
No-one made mention of different levels of overhauling the
transmission. I am aware that one can replace a number of hard parts
etc.. I have to trust the transmission shop to replace whatever hard
parts they judge to be damaged and go from there.
So what are you saying is a fair price for this type of work?
