How much is it to fix a car transmission?

I’ve been having some issues with my car recently so I had my mom look at it. She said it’s an issue with my transmission and that I might be better off just getting a new car. How much is it to get a car’s transmission repaired?

Fixing a car’s transmission is usually very expensive, ranging from $400 to $900 depending on the make, model, and severity of the issue. If it needs to be replaced, you could end up spending upwards of $4,000. So, your mom was probably right in suggesting that you just get yourself another car (unless this car is relatively new).
If you currently don’t have the cash to buy a car outright, you can look into** leasing a vehicle or even taking out a car loan**.
  • Leasing will allow you to have a newer vehicle with lower monthly payments than a car loan for the same vehicle.
  • Buying a car with a loan may be a good choice if you have your sights set on an inexpensive new or used vehicle. But if you buy a used vehicle, you may be on the hook for other expensive repairs in the near future.
Make room in your budget for a new ride by saving money on other car expenses—like your car insurance. The Jerry app makes it easy.
