Should we go to a transmission specialist or a regular shop for our issue? 2006 Kia Sedona - won’t shift into reverse suddenly and is in “limp” mode, only staying in 3rd gear.
My concerns are primarily getting it done correctly and as cheaply as possible. I’ve read that the issue could be an input or output solenoid or maybe having to get a full on re manufactured transmission instead. But the consensus appears to be having it properly diagnosed.
So my question is, will the local shop around the corner who is pretty good with most repairs be able to properly deal with this? Or am I better off skipping them and going to the specialist? Also, will it cost me more for the specialist or will I save money in the end going that route.
I appreciate any input on this. We have to figure out what to do by tomorrow morning.
