Every owner of a Honda automobile must be aware that engines and transmissions are the most important vehicle parts that can make the vehicles drive successfully. But a time will come that these auto parts such as the transmissions will need to be repaired or even replaced. Repairing these auto parts cost a lot of money so it is advisable to get a good quality used transmission.
Either way, here are some tips you should know when buying a used Honda transmission in Jamaica West Indies
Since used transmission comes from a wrecked, salvaged, scraped or damaged vehicle, it most likely has not been road tested yet. The only best way to check a used transmission is to make sure that it runs smoothly when shifting through all the gears. You can do this after the transmission is installed to the vehicle. We suggest asking about the warranty that is offered for the used transmission. Some junkyards in Jamaica will offer a 3 to 6 months warranty.
Many reputable junk yards in Jamaica may offer a warranty. If so negotiate one if possible. Even if it is only for 30 days that should give you enough time to inspect what you expected from the used transmission you purchased from them. Prior to the warranty expiring you may also want to take it to another garage to have it inspected or by someone else in the know that you trust. Buying a used transmission can have its benefits, but you have to be aware that you are buying a used transmission and making sure you are dealing with a reputable hopefully longstanding or multi-generational family owned salvage yard typically means that they are doing it right and should give you some piece of mind.
