I am not sure whether to replace it or trade the car. I was rear ended last year and the drivers insurance company decided to total my car.
Do you
have the same problem?

Good afternoon,

Since your car was declared totaled, the title will reflect that when a dealer does a title search. You will get less than 1/2 of the trade-in value since it is a salvage vehicle.

To replace it, if you got a used unit, plan on about $1,500.00 to $1,800.00.

A rebuilt unit would jump it to $3,000.00.

I believe that a rebuilt unit would be covered by a warranty, but what is a used unit?

A used transmission.

Do you have an extended warranty on the car? A warranty with your age car would most likely install a used transmission once it is confirmed bad by a shop.

Okay, got it.

Yes, the rebuilt will have a 3 year 50,000 warranty.

The used one will have 30 days.
