Where should I take my car to get the transmission fixed? For some this might seem like a very silly question but it is a good one that I get every week. The primary reason that this comes up is because there is a misconception that the car dealership is the best place to take your vehicle for something as major as your transmission. In reality it’s the furthest thing from the truth! This usually gets me a strange look from people because they are the dealer. Shouldn’t they know the car better then anyone else? Transmission repairs or rebuilds can best be done by specialized shops like SCA Transmission repair because we have trained technicians that do nothing but work on transmissions. The majority of dealerships don’t have this and it’s because most of the time the manufacturer didn’t make your vehicles transmission. Like many of the components in your vehicle, they are simply purchased from a third party vendor that has invested research and development into producing a specialized product. The auto manufacturers find it is better to simply buy tires, batteries, and yes your transmission. It makes sense since your transmission is one of the most complicated parts of your vehicle that has to endure very high levels of stress. It takes a team of engineers to design them and it’s usually something a manufacturer would just buy from a reputable company.
