Honda Fit Transmissions for Sale

Although the Honda Fit was introduced in Japan and Europe in 2001, it was not brought to the US and Canada until 2006. It is a North American sub compact car, a 5 door hatchback. It is built on a front wheel drive platform called GD1/2/3/4 which is the technical name for the chassis. Regardless, if you are having a transmission problem or need to buy a replacement Honda Fit Transmission for Sale, it’s wise to call GotTransmissions.com right now at 866-320-1182.

Remember, a front wheel drive car such as the Fit uses a transverse mounting system, with the engine and transmission bolted together under the hood, facing east to west, to the north south axis of the car. It’s the most popular and most likely, the most efficient FWD setup.

The Fit comes equipped with one of three transmission options. A 5 speed manual transmission, transaxle gearbox is one option, a 5 speed automatic overdrive transmission, and a CVT [CVT-7} is offered in the hybrid version, which was brought out in 2010 and uses the same driveline as the Honda Leaf. An all electric, plug in car.

Here is a brief FYI:: All Fits worldwide [70 countries] are available with CVT except in the USA.

Actually, when Honda is talking about “Fit” it is the same car as the ”Jazz”, in Europe, They all have the same 1.3 and 1.5L engines with the same CVT. However the availability of the engines depends on the country. Also the availability of the CVT and 5MT depend per country [5AT is only in USA].

Using shift paddles on the steering wheel with which 7 gear ratios can be chosen, offers the driver better feeling and more control. But it’s just a gadget as the CVT in the Fit is one of the best CVTs. Performance is excellent, driving is very smooth and fuel efficiency is approx. 10% better than 4 and 5 speed automatic transmissions.

Simply put, the Fit has not been in the US for long. Do we get requests for Fit transmissions? You bet, all sorts of happenings occur which may be out of ones control which cause transmissions failures. If you need a replacement Honda Fit Transmission, there is only one logical thing to do.

4-speed automatic Type Type A341E
5-speed automatic from 1998-00 SC 400 Type A650E
5-speed manual from 1992-97 SC 300

There is only one more generation of said car, made from 2001 to 2010. Switching to one V8 engine only, two automatic transmission were offered. One was offered from 2002 to 2005, a 5 speed automatic overdrive transmission, and an update was made in 2006 to a 6 speed automatic overdrive transmission, all come with a lock up torque converter.

The six speed model used in this car is called an A761E, all transmission with the ”A” letter in front are made by Aisn-Warner. The ”E” means it is fully electronic, controlled by a complex computer system. Using input sensors mounted in critical areas on the chassis and engine, real time signals are transferred to the computer to command the transmission to give the most efficient shift for the immediate driving conditions.

The SC is a rear wheel drive setup, as I mentioned earlier. Conventional it is not, but that is not important. The basic design is conventional in theory. The engine is mounted up front and the rear differential is in the back, a driveshaft connects them. That is where the difference between a conventional RWD and Lexus Rear wheel drive setup ends.

Kia Optima Transmissions for Sale, very affodable

Kia builds some of the best inexpensive cars available. One of the very successful models is the Optima, introduced in 2000, and still being made. A mildly strange history, because the first generation were only renamed Hyundai Sonata’s. Depending on the year of your Optima, we offer every variation of Kia Optima Transmissions for sale, at a realistic price. 866-320-1182.

The first generation is called model MS, and was made from 2000 to 2005. All Optima’s are front wheel drive cars, being built on a front wheel drive chassis. The term used to describe this setup is transverse. What that means is the engine/transmission combo is mounted sideways under the hood of the car. The most popular method of producing a front wheel drive car.

The only transmissions offered were a 4 speed automatic transmission with a lock up torque converter, and a 5 speed manual shift transmission. Both transmissions are conventional in design, meaning they are both transaxles, where the transmission and differential are in the same case. A convenient way to manufacture a front wheel drive transmission.

The second generation was made from 2005 to 2010, called model MG. The only drive line change was updating the 4 speed automatic transmission to a 5 speed transmission with lock up. Let me explain lock up. Most people don’t even know of the feature, yet all modern cars have it. It is the equivalent of a very subtle 6th forward gear, offering better fuel mileage.

The third generation Optima started production in 2010 and is still being made. Again, Kia upgraded from 5 forward speed automatic transmissions to a more modern 6 speed automatic, and upgraded the manual shift transmission to 6 speed as well.

Depending on which year you own, there may be more than one transmission option available for replacement, the only way to find out is to speak with someone who has good knowledge of the subject, and your best interest in mind.

Volkswagen Tiguan Transmissions for Sale

The VW Tiguan is one of the best looking, newer compact crossover vehicles [CUV], introduced by Volkswagen in 2008. It uses a front engine 4Motion four wheel drive system [all wheel drive] or you can buy a front wheel drive model only. Only three different transmissions are used in the Tiguan, interested in Volkswagen Tiguan Transmissions for Sale, call our specialists at 1-8977-268-0664 right now.

The three transmissions offered in the Volkswagen Tiguan:
1. A 6 speed manual transmission for front wheel drive only (FWD],
2. A 6 speed Tiptronic automatic transmission, FWD only
3. A 6 speed automatic Tiptronic control 4Motion with adaptive torque control.

The Tiptronic is owned By Porsche. Who licenses it’s use in certain Audi’s and Volkswagens too.

Many people use the term ‘tiptronic’ to refer generically to any type of torque converter automatic transmission that uses a manual upshift/downshift mode. Not the case here. A tiptronic transmission falls into the manumatic transmission description, for more info on manumatic transmission read this article.

A tiptronic transmission can operate in the same manner as an ordinary type of automatic transmission, but also offers the driver another method of manually shifting and thus overriding the automatic shift feature.

By moving the shift lever into a second operating position of the shift gate: “upshift” and “downshift”, the driver takes control over most of the gear shifting decisions manually, overriding automatic shifts, normally performed by the transmission’s intricate computerized system.

For example, this allows for delayed and manually controlled upshifts for increased acceleration, increased engine braking, holding it in gear for curves, downshifting before passing, or early up-shifting for regular cruising.

Although tiptronic transmissions allow the driver a certain measure of personalized control, the tiptronic design is incorporated by using an automatic transmission styled lock up torque converter like other conventional automatic transmissions.

Regardless of your reasons for being here, information, or actually looking for a replacement Tiguan transmission. GotTransmissions.com is the perfect transmission supplier to call and find out more about how to choose the right replacement transmission for your car.

Nissan Versa Transmissions for Sale

The Nissan Versa is a compact car marketed in the United states and Canada. In production since 2004, and currently being made. It is a compact car which comes as a 4 door coupe or 5 door hatch back. Only three transmissions are offered, each one matched to a specific engine. Available Nissan Xtronic CVT [Continuously Variable Transmission], a 4-speed electronically controlled automatic with overdrive, and a Manual 6-speed transmission. For more information read on, for Nissan Versa transmissions for sale, call 866-320-1182.

The Versa is a front wheel drive car. it uses a transverse mounting system, where the engine and transmission are bolted together and fit sideways under the hood. An axle comes from each side of the transmission to drive the left front wheel and right front wheel. The most popular and successful setup on the road day.

A continuously variable transmission [CVT] has many attractive features, including improving fuel economy, providing seamless smooth shifts, delivering continuous engine power and more enjoyable driving performance. Nissan developed and applied new design steel belts to their CVT units, and another new feature called XTRONIC to their CVT’s.

The 4 speed automatic over drive transmission is more accurately called a transaxle because the transmission and differential assembly are all in the same housing, or case. All modern automatic transmissions use a feature called lock up. The feature is the addition of a clutch plate in the torque converter. When it is applied, it gives the same effect as another forward speed would have, more fuel mileage and less engine wear.

These are high tech electronically controlled transmissions which use a fully computerized system with input sensors and output sensors delivering real time signals to the brain [valve body], thus causing the car to shift perfectly every time.

The standard shift transmissions are not as popular, yet remains an option for those who enjoy a manual shift transmission. It also is a transaxle, and mounted transversely under the hood.

The electric version of the Versa is called the Leaf, it is a fully electronic car with no gasoline or fossil fuel engine at all. A plug in car is the most common term.

If you need to replace tour Versa transmission, make it a point to call GotTransmissions.com and discuss your need with a competent professional. We have plenty of time to listen to your problem and needs, and recommend a replacement transmission that suits your needs and wallet. Call 866-320-1182 right now. Our job is to build peace of mind.

Infiniti M35X Transmissions for Sale

The M35X Infiniti is a full sized luxury car. Made between 2005 and 1010. The name identifies which power-plant it has. Making use of a 7 forward speed automatic transmission. The only transmission offered in the M35X. If you are on the hunt for one of said transmissions, GotTransmissions.com has rebuilt and low mileage used Infiniti M35X transmissions for sale. I want to mention and discuss the CLKUP feature.

CLKUP is an acronym for “Computer-Controlled Continuously Variable Lockup.” It’s important to note that this is not referring to a CVT transmission, but rather a continuously variable lockup torque converter of which every automatic transmission has. The two items are totally different. In fact, 99% of the cars on the road in the last 15 years have some form of a lock up torque converter. Infiniti has designed an excellent working system that is so smooth, most people are not aware of it, but it saves gas and engine wear.

Infiniti calls it an” Adaptive Shifting Transmission”. Before I go any further on this matter, let me mention the M35X is a front engine rear wheel drive car. There is nothing conventional about it. The engine and transmission are located further back than most cars, not actually a ”mid-ship engine”, it does sit closer to the center of the car, therefore allowing for almost perfect weight distribution for greater handling and stopping ability. 50/50 weight distribution was the goal.

Adaptive shifting is Infifni’s trade-name for their version of an automatic overdrive transmission controlled by a complicated computer system. Making use of sensors mounted on the chassis, engine and transmission. Then the brain of the transmission [valve body] receives real time input signals, thus allowing the car to instantly adapt to any driving condition or driving habit put to it.

It’s not very common, but M35X transmissions have failures. Which leads me to the frustration and trouble most folks have deciding how to replace their transmission for an affordable price, with out sacrificing reliability.

I am not in a position to recommend anything to you, but if you call GotTransmissions.com and speak with a representative, all of the proper questions will be asked of you, and then we will teach you how to choose a transmission that suits your budget and needs. Making a great decision is a great feeling.

Volkswagen VW Passat Transmissions for Sale

The VW Passat was introduced in 1972 as a mid to large size car. It deviates from the Beetle in many ways. The way it deviates the most is in it’s drive-line design. VW adopted the very common and successful Transverse transmission arrangement. Being of solid design and used extensively on other makes of cars, VW put their brand on said system. For those who want to buy Volkswagen VW Passat Transmissions for Sale, GotTransmissions.com is one call away, 866-320-1182. Call right now for a free low price quote, or read on.

The Passat has evolved very much over the years. When VW was introduced, it was called the ”Peoples Car”. A car everyone could afford, which was easy to maintain and affordable to fix. Well, modern technology has changed most of the easy to fix part. But the tradeoff is a fair one, the Passat out-drives many other cars in it’s class and price range with ease.

From offering a 4 speed manual transmission and a 3 speed automatic transmission, they are now building some of the most advanced and outstanding transmissions in the world. In today’s society, that is a good tradeoff for most folks. Reliability is the issue.

Jump forward to the newest generation of Passat and we have a very high technology drive system called ”4MOTION four wheel drive, that comes with a 6 speed twin clutch direct shift Gearbox [transmissions] [DSG]. 4motion the name of Volkswagens patented drive system, used exclusively on Volkswagen automobiles which use four-wheel drive [4WD] systems.

The Direct-Shift Gearbox[ DSG] is computer controlled, electronically activated dual clutch disc multiple/shaft manual transmission, a transaxle design, without a clutch pedal, with full automatic or semi-automatic controls.

Simply put, it is two separate manual transmissions and two clutch discs, contained within one housing, and working as one unit to evenly distribute the power across the entire drive-line.

Being that this is not an ordinary transmission system, the first suggestion I would make should you suspect, or know you have a transmission problem is to seek professional help. It is not a job for the back yard mechanic.

My second suggestion holds as much water or more as the first one. Buy your Passat transmission from the best supply company you can find. Transmissions are not a good area to cut corners on, especially high technology transmissions. It always costs less in the long and short run to buy a product which is rebuilt properly, or is is known to be in perfect working order with a warranty to prove it.

I won’t and can’t suggest which type of transmission will suit your interests and pocketbook. What I can say is GotTransmissions has an excellent variety of precision transmissions using original VW parts or better, with every approved Volkswagen update, or, one of our certified good used transmissions.

There is no wrong way to go when you buy from GotTransmissions.com. Our service representatives are eager to help you learn more about transmission replacement and we have our products arranged for immediate shipment or delivery as as soon as the order is completed.

Buy a Subaru Outback Transmission for less.

My first experience with a Subaru Outback was when the first commercials came out with Crocodile Dundee as a spokesperson. I loved those movies. The car or SUV as it is known to be, is a crossover design, meaning it will navigate the highways with grace and with the flick of a lever, you can go off-roading. Subaru has always made good transmissions, that’s exactly why you should call GotTransmissions.com if you need to buy quality Subaru Outback Transmissions.

First put on the market in 1995, transmission options were simple and basic. A 4 speed automatic transmission, and a 5 speed manual transmission was all that was offered. Parenthetically, the Outback is a front wheel drive/four wheel drive vehicle. It uses a different setup than other front wheel drive vehicles.

Instead of the very common method of transversely mounting the engine and transmission under the hood, Subaru uses a longitudinal design to achieve front wheel drive and four wheel drive. Essentially the transmission is separate from the differential/transfer case, as opposed to the more common transverse design, where the transmission and differential are in the same case/housing.

As far as I’m concerned, functionally speaking, neither design has an advantage. Mechanically speaking, this method is somewhat more complicated to design and produce, which, in my opinion is why it is not as popular.

Incidentally, Subaru, however is one of the first companies to make use of CVT [continually variable transmission] transmissions. In fact, the fourth generation Outback is the 9th Subaru to feature a CVT.

For instance, the five speed automatic transmission is called a 5EAT and uses a feature Subaru calls SportShift. Essentially a JatcoJR507E transmission with an overdrive feature and lockup torque converter.

Ford Motor Company also uses the same transmission on some cars that are made by Mazda, which is called the 4EAT [4 speeds] and 5EAT [5 speeds]. As an example, the Ford Probe and Mazda 626 use the same platform, engine and transmission. They are the same car except for trim packages.

Back to the Subaru Outback. As a general rule, the most common replacement transmissions for this vehicle are remanufactured units. In terms of value, nothing can beat it. Priced well less than most folks expect, this is our best seller.

Call first, but for those not interested in, or who can’t quite afford a rebuilt transmission, we offer a lineup of certified good used transmissions, complete with torque converter and a confidence building guarantee.

You have to make the call. It won’t happen by itself. Pick up the phone and call GotTransmissions.com for some realistic advise and information on how to choose a transmission that meets your needs, from budget to application. Call 866-320-1182 right now for a free quote.

Cadillac CTS Transmissions for Sale

I’m going to cut right to the chase. I’m a transmission man. I have been in the transmission business for over 30 years. Cadillac has offered too many transmission options [CTS] for me to go into great detail on each one, it would take too long. Suffice it to say, Caddy made sure everyone has a transmission and engine option to suit ones needs. If you ever need to replace your transmission and want to buy a Cadillac CTS transmission for sale, or just gather info, GotTransmissions.com is the place.

The only Cadillac to offer a manual transmission since the 1988 Cadillac Cimeron.
On-demand all-wheel drive was offered with an automatic transmission only. All of the CTS transmissions are made for rear wheel drive cars only.

The first generation of CTS was made from 2003 to 2007. If you want to identify your transmission, here is a list of said transmissions. The Tremec T-56 is a common manual transmission. The AY-6 is a 6-speed manual transmission manufactured by Aisin. It is designed for longitudinal engine applications. Longitudinal meaning front engine/rear wheel drive, with a drive-shaft connecting the transmission to the rear differential.

5-speed 5L40-E automatic
5-speed Getrag 260 manual
6-speed Aisin AY-6 manual
6-speed Tremec T-56 manual

The second generation was introduced in 2008 and is still being made. Using a similar array of transmissions, they included more forward gears in most cases. The Tremec came with 6 forward speeds as opposed to 5. Except for the Aisin AY-6, the other units now have 6 forward speeds, with a lock up torque converter.

A lock up torque converter is like an extra forward gear, so you end up with even more fuel savings, and a longer engine life. Here is a list for your convenience, even if you don’t know it.

6-speed 6L50 automatic
6-speed 6L90 automatic
6-speed Aisin AY-6 manual
6-speed Tremec TR-6060 manual
