new trans in '97 contour
My decision to fix this old beater instead of my Explorer is making me wonder???
The $1325 rebuilt trans did not fix the problem it went in with, and now my mechanic (who farmed this out to someone he uses) tells me that the trans shop will be putting in a brand new one, at no extra expense to me. And they will pay for me to rent a car while this one is in the shop.
Does this sound too good to be true? The mechanic told me that new trans go for $4000, which is why I was getting a rebuilt one in the first place. How would I know (or my mechanic, for that matter) if I really get a new one?
BTW, I haven't paid for it yet, altho my mechanic has paid the trans shop.
