How much does a new transmission cost?

Your car's transmission is one of the most complex parts of its engine. Due to this and the fact that the transmission is continually in use while you're operating your car, it's subject to a significant amount of wear and tear while other engine components are not. So, it shouldn't be surprising that replacing the transmission is one the most expensive repairs that you can have done on your car.

Perhaps the most important question to ask is "how much does a new transmission cost?" The cost of a new transmission can range from $1000 — $4000, and there are a number of factors involved in determining the price. One of most important factors is the make and model of your vehicle, with the cost for high-end and imports running higher in comparison to domestic models. Other factors that come into play are the amount of damage the transmission has sustained and whether or not your car is equipped with an automatic vs. a manual transmission.

One way to cut down on your repair bill is to consider replacing your existing transmission with a rebuilt one. reports that opting for a rebuilt transmission can save you anywhere from $500 to as much as $1000 depending on the make and model of your vehicle.
