Reconditioned gearboxes, or transmissions, are cheaper, better for the environment and more reliable than new gearboxes, according to CarsDirect. Reconditioned gearboxes are readily available at trusted car vendors for easy installation.
Reconditioned gearboxes are used transmissions that have been totally taken apart, cleaned, updated and rebuilt with new parts. When refurbished correctly, a reconditioned gearbox is more reliable than a new transmission.
Reconditioned gearboxes are cheaper than new transmissions because they are used and, therefore, might have unforeseen problems with installation or performance. They are also better for the environment than new transmissions because they are made from recycled parts and take less energy and fewer materials to build.
