Bad Transmission? Fix It or Sell It?

So, you’ve determined your transmission is bad. What next? Choosing what to do can be overwhelming, and you need someone you can trust to help you decide what work needs to be done. Frank May Garage in Akron, OH is here to help you make the right decision when it comes to your transmission. There are a few things to consider when your transmission goes out. You might feel inclined to just get a new car, but should you? 

Will a transmission solve your problems? If the transmission is your only major issue, once you replace it, you’ll have a car, truck, or SUV that drives like new again. If the vehicle is in an all-around poor condition, it might be time to call it quits. Otherwise, a transmission replacement is just what you’re looking for.

What is the vehicle worth? With a bad transmission, your car isn’t worth much. Even if you trade it in, you’re probably looking at taking a loss on the vehicle you currently own. If the car wouldn’t be worth much either way, or the repair job costs way more than the vehicle is worth, that might be alright. But if your car is overall still in pretty good shape, replacing the transmission will get it back up to par.

Would you rather keep your vehicle? At the moment, probably not. Cars with transmission issues are a hassle, and annoying to drive. You might be feeling over it. Remember how it drove when you bought it though, and know that you can get it there again. You’ll have a vehicle that you know the history of, and it’ll keep you out of a car payment.

If you need a second opinion on whether you should repair or replace your vehicle, we’ve got you covered. The professional technicians at Frank May Garage in Akron, OH can help you decide.
