How Much is a Transmission?

Transmission Cross Section Close-Up


There’s not much that can go wrong under the hood of your vehicle that is as costly as a transmission that has failed. How much is a new transmission? How much does a transmission cost if it’s rebuilt or used? How much is a transmission replacement if you include labor? Our service department has helped lots of Taylor drivers like you with their transmission problems, so we have the answers. Let’s look at them below.



How Much is a New Transmission?

So, how much is a new transmission? A new transmission will run you between $1,800 to $3,400, not including labor to replace. This is the best option, as a new transmission will be built to factory specs and work exactly as your original transmission did when it was brand new.

How Much is a Transmission if It’s Rebuilt or Used?

Some Georgetown drivers have decided to save some money by going the used or rebuilt route. Rebuilt transmissions can save you a few hundred dollars. How much does a transmission cost if it’s rebuilt? A rebuilt transmission will cost from $1100 to $2800. But they are not built to factory specs, and there is no guarantee that it will work exactly like a factory transmission. What about a used transmission? That’s even more risky. Sure, used transmissions cost only $800 to $1500, but it’s possible that the transmission you get will eventually have the same problem your old one had.

How Much Does a Transmission Cost to Be Replaced?

How much is a transmission replacement when you include labor? Replacing a transmission can take from 4 to 10 labor hours. That translates to $500 to $1200 labor charge on top of the actual cost of the transmission. So, the total cost of replacing a transmission can cost between $1,300 to $4,600.

Why So Expensive?

Transmissions contain numerous small parts and are labor-intensive to service. It might be helpful to think of the transmission, not as one part, but as its own system or collection of smaller parts that are intricately connected to each other.
