My independent shop quoted me $1500 to rebuild my existing transmission, or $2200 for a rebuilt. The difference being, a week in the shop for them to rebuild it, or a day to swap. I'm not eager to spend that kind of $$$$ unless it really begins to shift crappy. My shop did tell me to get it done if I hear grinding or anything, but I figure I can wait for this to happen. Right now my main problem is a very slow transition from reverse to drive when it's cold. I'm fine unless I have to back out of a parking place when the tranny is cold.
