Q: Rebuild or Used Transmission?

asked by on

I have a 1999 Lexus RX300 failed transmission. Is a rebuild or used transmission better?

My car has 200000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi There, I would suggest installing a rebuilt transmission. Rebuilt transmissions are essentially used transmissions that have been rebuilt with new internal components and seals, rehabbing them back to "like new" working condition. The potential problem with a used transmission is that you may or may not be getting one that will last or otherwise have potential problems.
