How much have people here paid for a transmission rebuild? I'm debating my options as far as whether to have a local shop rebuild my transmission or whether to put in a low mileage salvage one.

If I went the salvage route, how much would a shop charge just for labor/installation/fluid?

I'm also assuming that it's more cost-efficient to have the shop rebuild your existing transmission rather than buying one that was already rebuilt?

Thanks!

I went for a rebuild of mine... 1800$ which came with a lifetime warranty (as long as I have the car... ok, yes I am lucky, it's a shop I know and they really garantee their work)... but usually it would be a 1 year warranty.

While a salvage, low mileage, was 1600$, but 3 months warranty...

I went for rebuilding mine.

look on ebay i got a tranny with 30k miles on it for 500$ with a 3 month warranty (had to drive 150 miles to get it so about 50$ in the tank) and had a local shop install it for about 350$
