Rebuild a transmission?

Asked by May 26, 2017 at 08:18 AM about the 2011 Chevrolet Suburban LT 1500 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2011 Suburban 4WD. It needs a
transmission. Dealer says $3900. Local mechanic I
know says $1850. Is there a better way to do it?

I probably would use the dealer. They know what they are doing, generally speaking. Also the dealership warranty may be better.

Better way as in what? Bob's right, the dealer will replace with a re-manufactured transmission assembly. But if cost is a concern, have the local transmission shop do a rebuild.

I doubt the cheaper price includes replacing all the electrical components in the transmission which leaves other things to fail. If possible get the details of what each price includes before deciding. If you are going to keep the Suburban go with the better quality job.
