Pros and Cons
Transmission replacement
Any time a transmission is severely damaged, it will likely require a full transmission replacement. This means that your mechanic will replace your damaged transmission with one that has been refurbished at the factory.
This is a good option for people whose transmissions are too damaged to rebuild. Because it is coming from the factory, the transmission is updated to the pre-built factory specifications. It will probably be more costly than a rebuild.
Transmission rebuild
In this case, the mechanic will work with the existing transmission and rebuild it.
As long as the mechanic is knowledgeable, this can be a great option as it will be less expensive than a replacement. However, it does take time, so plan for this and know that you will be paying for the mechanic’s time and expertise.
Be sure to check to see whether the transmission is still under warranty. Cadillac typically offers a 6-year/70,000-mile powertrain warranty.
