Customer Education

Customer education is an important principle of our business.

Accurate Transmission Diagnosis - Transmission Rebuild ShopMany Denver auto repair shops, including dealerships, will recommend a full transmission replacement. Often this is not the best solution for a customer. Then why do they do this? Simple; nearly all general auto repair shops do not have the expertise to perform the complex transmission rebuilding process in-house.  Surprisingly, many repair shops that advertise themselves as transmission specialist also do not maintain in-house rebuilding expertise.

Sometimes customers are told they should purchase a “new” transmission over a transmission rebuild. This is usually misleading. Often when a transmission is in need of repair, that specific transmission model is no longer manufactured as a “new” entire unit. Then what is a dealership or a repair shop selling? Normally these “new” transmissions are remanufactured transmissions in a factory where quality standards vary greatly.

Complete Transmission Rebuild

  1. Identify and Repair the Cause of Failure.  Normally there is a single cause of failure that leads to customers bringing their vehicles into a repair facility.  Our first objective is the identify the cause of failure and then incorporate a part replacement or repair in our rebuild strategy.
  2. Soft Parts.  There are countless wearable parts in a transmission that degrade over time. Seals, gaskets, clutches, check balls, o-rings, snap rings, and other parts should not be expected to last for the entire life of a vehicle. In many cases, soft parts have deteriorated due to high vehicle mileage and that is the cause of failure. These rebuilds are more budget-friendly as they may only require a master rebuild kit which includes all the soft parts, a rebuilt torque converter, and fresh transmission fluid. Even if a soft part is not the cause of failure, at Advanced Transmission Center we always replace these soft parts to ensure longevity of a transmission.
  3. Marginal Parts.  Regardless of the exact cause of failure, most rebuilds have numerous components that show wear. Does it make sense to complete a transmission rebuild only to leave certain marginal parts in that transmission? This approach might save a few dollars upfront but can cost the customer thousands of dollars a few months later when today’s marginal parts fail down the road.
  4. Other Known Failures.  Our In-House Rebuild Department maintains both its own library of known failures and also reviews national data on design flaws for each transmission model. If you are going through a transmission rebuild, wouldn’t you want a transmission specialist that intimately knows the design of your specific transmission? We consider common causes of failure and rebuild your transmission where it is often better than the original transmission because we have addressed known weaknesses.

Cost savings can be achieved especially if a customer is considering a “new” transmission from a dealership or general auto repair shop. They buy a 3rd party transmission and mark it up to make a profit. The quality is unknown, and the warranty is often inferior. We recognize there are often cheaper solutions than a transmission rebuild yet it is the most cost-effective way to achieve a quality repair with the benefit of a warranty covering parts and labor.
