For over 50 years we have been a leader of transmission repair in Victoria and Vancouver Island. Because of this a question we get asked a lot is “How many kilometres can a transmission take before needing replacement?” This is a tough question to answer as it’s not the same for all transmissions. However, we will provide you with the best answer we can.
Each transmission is different. Standard transmissions usually don’t need to be replaced during their entire lifetime, whereas some automatic transmissions need replacing around the 200-250,000 km mark. Overall, it is important to maintain regular servicing and maintenance for your transmission.
