View Full Version : Tranny...to re-build or not?

06-16-2013, 11:10 PM
Hey everyone,

I have a 1996 A4 Quattro and the transmission is toast. One shop quoted $4K-$5K to rebuild and get it running again (yikes!). The tranny was rebuilt 3 years ago and of course is out of the shop's warranty. Should I rebuild it or sell/part out the vehicle? It's been a good vehicle for the last 8 years I've owned it, 168,000 miles on it and I just spent a couple grand replacing the timing belt, water pump, etc. Thoughts?

Any recommendations for a reputable transmission shop in the Denver area?

Thanks for the help!
