What is the average price for a gearbox overhaul/repair?


The price varies greatly between gearbox overhauls and repairs. This is because there are so many factors, such as:

  • Make and model of cars

  • Type of gearbox (Auto or manual and CVT)

  • If there are any hard parts broken (major components)

  • If there has been lack of oil

These are just some variables when it comes to gearboxes.

For an accurate estimate on what it will cost to repair/overhaul your gearbox please call our friendly team at Vice Automotive. They will be happy to work with you and get you back on the road.
