How long will a rebuilt transmission last?
posted by stormpooper to travel & transportation (7 answers total)
My 2004 Maxima w/ 101k miles on it blew it's trans yesterday (goody). After 100k inspection they said all the car needed were plugs and breaks. Fluids looked great. Then two weeks later my trans blew. So we're looking at a rebuilt but high mile trans.
While I don't have a down payment on a car and this one is paid off, I was wondering will a high mile, rebuilt trans be the way to go or is this going to blow too in 2 years? Trying to estimate/weight when is the right time to get a lower mile car replacement (and start all over again w/ payments :()
