My transmission has finally had enough. I have 220,000 miles on my MV Weekender, and now the transmission is toast. Does anyone have any good recommendations on who does good rebuilds, and good work installing? I am in So Cal.
Thank you.

Seems like GoWesty is the authority on these.

German Transaxle of America in Bend, OR has rebuilt hundreds of EV transmissions. There is no better. We can

Unfortunately the market has not enough supply and too much demand which leads to crazy prices and schemes like the core charge. Be very careful, a friend of mine ordered a rebuild and it did not work. The shop had to pull it out again and send it back. I am not sure who took care of the additional labor. From the cost that I see here it might be even more cost effective to ship a rebuild transmission in from Europe. The British for example like the T4 a lot. Problem could be that Europeans usually drive manuals and diesel. German prices are as low as 2000 euros plus shipping for a rebuild Transmission. Of course you would have to figure out customs regulations and fees. Just a thought.

Thank you all for the info. With everyone's input, and a lot of research on my end, looks like I will be taking it to the dealer to avoid all the core charges and possibilities of getting a bad rebuild. As much as I try to keep it away from dealerships, this looks like my best option with a 1 year warranty.
I guess I'm pretty lucky to have driven so many miles without any problems before.
Again, thanks for the info. I will post the outcome next month.

Wish you the best. Please let us know of their plan and estimated cost and time to repair.

Was German Transaxle not of your liking? Many EV owners have stated how pleased they were with German Transaxle.

I had a similiar problem with my 2003 Eurovan GLS and was so frustrated and sad as I was getting extremely high estimates from 9K down. Then my mechanic recommended Cres-o-matic in Hawaiian Gardens. He's the best, honest, detailed and way-way cheaper than all the others plus got a 3 year 36000 mile warranty. This was about almost two years ago and have been very happy with the performance of my eurovan.
