2006 Ford Explorer transmission replacement cost

I’ve had a 2006 Ford Explorer since it was brand new. I’ve put a lot of money into repairs over the years, but now the transmission is dead and I’m wondering if it’s even worth it to fix it up, or if I should buy a new car. What does a 2006 Ford Explorer transmission replacement cost?

It’s always sad when a car you’ve had a very long time just can’t keep going. A 2006 Ford Explorer transmission replacement costs between $5,600 and $6,100.
These estimates include parts and labor, but they will vary based on your location and how competitive local mechanics are in your area. So you should definitely consider shopping around for the best pricing.
Unfortunately, the news doesn’t get much better when we look at the Kelley Blue Book value of your 2006 Ford Explorer, either. They give this car a fair market value between $3,138 and $4,413.
That means a blown transmission would technically leave your SUV totaled, meaning the price of repairs exceeds the vehicle’s value.
