Buying a Used Jeep Grand Cherokee Transmission

April 16, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 188

Motor vehicles are a wonderful invention, while they keep running. But when you have diagnosed that either the engine or transmission needs to be replaced, it's not a trivial matter and can be massively expensive if the only option is to buy new equipment. But then there is no point to installing new equipment in a used vehicle, because the new transmission for example is going to outlive the rest of the vehicle. If your decision is to only install new gear, you'll quickly have accumulated more expense than buying a new vehicle. The logical choice is to learn how to buy used transmissions, and engines if that ever comes up.

One of the great advantages of the Jeep Grand Cherokee is that it has been such a popular choice by millions of American motorists over the past two decades that there is an extremely large second hand market place, including the market for used parts. And given that the Jeep Grand Cherokee has not had the best reputation for its various transmission configurations, there is the very real prospect of owners needing to replace theirs. Whilst buying a used transmission system and fitting is not every person's idea of an easy thing to do, there are many ways to reduce the risk and to come out on top financially.

Firstly, as with many purchases these days, searching online will most likely result in the lowest cost supplier option for you to find the transmission you need. This is because it is very easy for buyers to move on to the next web site, making the online environment extremely competitive. Vendors servicing walk in off the street traffic know that they can charge more money because the buyer must go to a lot of inconvenience to find the next vendor.

It is very important to identify exactly what you want. There have been many different configurations of which Jeep Grand Cherokee engine size had which transmission brand and model. Your owner's manual will be a great source for getting the right model to search for.

You then next need to decide if you will be happy with a used transmission that has been removed from a wreck, or that you feel safer with the more expensive reconditioned one. Wrecked vehicles are a great source for perfectly good transmissions, yet they probably will not come with any warranty protection. On the other hand, a unit that has been rebuilt should be as good as new, come with a full warranty, but it will also be much more expensive. Your budget and propensity for risk is go to heavily influence your decision about this.

As a separate issue, getting the unit professionally fitted can make sense. Transmissions are not light, and they are quite complex pieces of equipment. It is advisable to buy your transmission separately rather than buy it from the firm installing it, so as to save the profit margin they would otherwise intend to earn.
