ADVANTAGE TRANSMISSIONS is a full service automotive and light truck transmission repair facility, not a wholesale transmission remanufacturer.
At Advantage Transmissions, you will get back the same transmission that your car or truck came in with, rebuilt, and you will pay only for the parts it needed.
The practice of rebuilding the transmission that came out of the vehicle avoids all of the problems of mis-matches and improper calibration associated with exchange units.
Most models of transmissions have applications that span many years, all with different model codes that are specific to the year and model of the vehicle they were calibrated for.
Because most of these different models will "bolt up" , the big wholesale transmission "remanufacturers" try to group hundreds of model codes into just a few in order to reduce the amount of stock they must carry.
Unfortunately this practice virtually assures the fact that the trans you get back is not the exact right one for your car!
No one can deny the fact that the best transmission for the vehicle is the one it came with from the factory.
The prices we quote are for complete overhauls. They include the master overhaul kit, a rebuilt torque converter, all clutches, bands, seals and powerflushing the transmission cooler and refilling the system with fresh fluid.
The only parts not included in the price are those necessary to repair extreme or unusual damage. These are considered "Hard Parts" and do not come in the overhaul kit. They are priced out individually, if needed.
The practice of listing hard parts separately was adopted to help stabilize pricing at lower levels instead of inflating prices on transmission types that are known for their possibility of expensive hard part damage.
All of our work comes with a 12 month , 12 thousand mile warranty and although we are an independent shop , our warranty is nationwide through the AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION REBUILDERS ASSOCIATION, or "ATRA".
Our vice president, John Pifke, is a nationally recognized transmission diagnostic expert.
He has over 27 years in the transmission industry and his work has been published in the Transmission Digest.
He was inducted into the "Sonnax TASC force", a group of respected transmission professionals, where his input is used to help educate and solve problems for the transmission industry as a whole.
