“It happens sooner for some vehicle types than for others, but if you drive your car long enough, it will need transmission repair at some point. Whether this means the transmission needs to be serviced, rebuilt or replaced may depend on how long the car has been driven with transmission issues, and how much damage has been done.
Fortunately, your car will usually tell you when the transmission is starting to fail, and the sooner you bring the vehicle in to a qualified automotive specialist, the greater your chances will be of avoiding the expense of a full rebuild. The key is to not ignore the symptoms when they occur. Here are a few warning signs that your car may be in need of transmission repair.
