Automatic transmissions are by far the dominate type of transmission in America, as opposed to Europe, where approximately 80% of the vehicles have a manual transmission. It has been said that the reason for this is that Europeans like to be more involved in the driving process as opposed to Americans preferring the ease of driving with an automatic transmission. Regardless of which type of transmission your car has, at some point it is going to need work done on it.
A Complex Machine
Any transmission is a very complex machine, and automatic transmissions doubly so. They are the most complex part of a car, not including computer chips or other electronics. Each transmission has hundreds of parts, even as many as 900, many of them moving. If any one of them fails, the whole thing falls apart.
Finding a Replacement
When, not if, a transmission needs to be replaced most people quickly find themselves looking at a rebuilt transmission. When looking at rebuilt transmissions it is essential that the mechanics that put it together be qualified and trustworthy. Trans Works Transmissions fits that criterion to the tee.

The average time required for rebuilt transmissions to be completed is between 3 and 4 days.

The Average Cost of Replacement
It’s important to keep in mind that replacing your transmission is not cheap, but in most cases it’s well worth it.
