I have a 200 explorer, it is in very good shape. Kept up with maintenance. It has 205,000 miles on it.

Need transmission replaced, is it worth putting 2700.00 into this vehicle


#2

are you buyin it new to be payin that much??? would get one rebuilt or maybe used i over haul my engines every 250,000 miles but its up to you if your goin to keep it or just use it till you get something else


#3

Auto or manual?

If that’s the Ford reman you get a 3yr-100k warranty too.

If the TRUCK is worth it, only YOU can answer. The condition of all the rest of the truck will determine if $2700.00 gets you a nice servicable truck for the next three years.


#5

Have you shopped around on that repair?? Unless there is a lot of labor involved pulling the transmission, $2700 seems a little high for a Ford automatic…But look at it this way…Unless you fix it, you have nothing but scrap metal worth $200. But repaired, it’s worth at least $2700…(hopefully)…

I agree with Caddyman. $2700 seems high for this transmission. I had a 96 Explorer tranny rebuilt from a good shop about 4 years ago and it was closer to $1800. This transmission is not expensive to rebuild (relatively speaking) and a good, reputable transmission shop should be able to do the job correctly and for less than $2700.
