I am having transmission issue in my 2008 Acura TL(110k miles). I took it to Acura dealer and they told me replace with a new transmission which may cost around $5000. I then took it to another mechanic which quoted $1800 for installing a used transmission($1000 for used transmission and fluids and $800 for labor cost). Now I am confused which way to go. $5000 is too high based on the return value of my car but then I don't know if $800 is right amount for labor cost which the other mechanic quoted me. Which way should I go and is $1800 right amount for a used transmission installation?

Hello, can you write a little more about the issues, and if the transmission was serviced on-time or if it was neglected, maybe signs of poor maintenance, etc. Thanks.

I paid $2500 for my tranny to be rebuilt by my normal local mechanic shop. The labor was $817 to R&R the trans itself. The transmission shop charged $1200 for the labor required for the overhaul. And the parts required for the overhaul (overhaul kit, rebuilt torque converter, etc.) were a little over $400. Mine is an 04 TL. So yeah, $800 for the labor to R&R a used transmission in your car sounds right.
