Our Automatic Transmission Overhaul Rebuild or Replacement Warranty

Suburban Transmissions is proud to offer a strong 3 years, 100,000 miles warranty on our complete automatic transmission overhaul or rebuild. We also offer factory remanufactured transmissions, and can often extend the warranty beyond the dealer's guarantee on these installations. The warranty covers all parts, labor, internal electronics, fluid, and taxes.

How Important is the Transmission Warranty?

Longer parts and service warranties are known to draw more customers. Transmission rebuilders are aware of this, so many provide clearly defined long term warranties. Why then, would a transmission shop shorten their warranty period and lose some potential customers? The answer is they have probably taken short cuts in the repair to save costs stripping the reliability of the repair.

Warranty Period for Transmission Rebuild and Replacement

Companies offer warranties to consumers to either address apprehensions consumers may have about the quality of the companies’ products, or to draw attention to the quality of their products. A consumer may not expect a product to fail, but a strong transmission warranty shows the consumer that the manufacturer doesn’t expect it to fail. The potential benefit of the transmission shop is the increase in sales. The potential cost to the company is the loss due to untimely failures. Since a longer transmission warranty will yield more sales, what criteria would a company use to determine the warranty period? The answer is the point at which the overall cost of warranty-covered failures becomes higher than the overall benefit of the increase in sales. If a company’s product is less reliable, that point represents a shorter period of time. If a company’s product is very reliable, that point represents a longer period of time. The bottom line: If a transmission shop doesn’t have confidence in their product, neither should you. You will find in your research that Suburban has among the longest warranties on their transmission overhauls as anyone in the industry.

Transmission Extended Warranty Contracts in Maryland

Suburban Transmission will honor any auto transmission vehicle extended warranty contract in Maryland, no matter where the vehicle was purchased. The contract may have been purchased through a used car dealer dealership, or on the internet. We have years of experience navigating the red tape of the extended warranty contract to assure that the claim is not invalidated due to a technicality. We have dealt repeatedly with most of the warranty companies out there and have experienced great success in ensuring our customer's claims are approved.

Extended Warranty Information

Our Transmission Service Will Extend the Current Warranty

Many cars and trucks that come into our shop with an aftermarket extended service warranty contract are more than halfway through the original contract term. Often times, the extended warranty company only wishes to get a warranty for the term of their contract. If you only have a month left on your contract, that does not provide you with any security. At Suburban, any transmission on which we perform services has a warranty for a period of time, depending on the nature of the work. As our customer, this warranty will be provided to you upon completion of the services. This warranty does not replace your original extended automotive service warranty contract but will extend the warranty past the original contract period for any repair services that we perform.

Transmission Extended Warranty Contracts in Maryland

Suburban Transmission honors all extended auto warranty contracts, regardless of where the truck or car warranty was purchased. Most of these contracts are sold through used car dealerships, although some may have been purchased as an extended warranty on a new car or truck. Contracts that cover engine and transmission problems can also be purchased on the Internet, but buyer beware on these warranties. The terms within the contract usually include specific maintenance procedures that must be fulfilled to keep the contract valid. These procedures often include changing the motor oil and transmission fluids at regular intervals, according to the vehicle manufacturer's specifications. While there are numerous vendors, including Carmax MaxCare in Laurel, all warranties sold in Maryland have a minimum coverage responsibility. 

Auto Transmission Extended Warranty Service Contract Claims

At Suburban Transmission, our sole responsibility is to you, not the warranty company. Auto extended warranty contracts usually incorporate a list of ‘gotchas’ into their service contracts. We keep a catalog of most warranty company contracts on file and stay up to date on transmission contract fine print. This is done to ensure that the claim is not declined due to technicalities, such as improper verbiage, that could erroneously be used when documenting the cause of failure on a transmission warranty claim. Our experience in dealing with these companies allows us to follow the proper procedure to be sure that your claim is approved. Moreover, we have performed repairs for every major warranty company within Maryland.  Our reputation for receiving approval for repairs from these companies assists in making the approval process run more smoothly.  Engine oil should be changed at specified intervals, and all receipts should be kept with the warranty contract paperwork. While filing a claim for automatic transmission failure, some companies will require a copy of all engine oil receipts. Although the engine and the transmission lubrication requirements are not related in any way, a warranty company may deny a claim if your engine maintenance records cannot be produced. We make sure to review the contracts prior to contacting the warranty company to ensure that we know what repairs will be covered and the proper procedure for presenting a claim.

Automobile extended warranty companies operate much like any other business, so some are better than others when it comes to paying out warranty claims. As a buyer, it is difficult to tell the difference between them, and countless hours of research can’t compete with real-life business experience. The entities that have the most experience with automobile extended warranty companies are the used car dealerships. We have extensive experience in dealing with all companies, putting us in a better position to know how best to get approval for your repair.

Buying Auto Extended Warranties through Maryland Car Dealerships

Maryland Car dealerships have the most experience with extended auto warranties. Because they sell aftermarket warranties in Maryland on a daily basis, they seek out the best companies with which to do business. With a few exceptions, it is usually better to purchase an extended warranty from a car dealership than from any other vendor. A dealer is unlikely to do business with a disreputable company, as it is not usually in their economic best interest. If a car dealership has a problem with a warranty company, it means that their customer has a problem, which becomes a pain for them. Car dealerships are likely to make a little money from selling a warranty but usually won't benefit from selling bad ones. In my honest opinion, the worst place to buy aftermarket extended auto warranty is the Internet. We would also avoid any warranty that is heavily promoted through mass media, such as television and radio. If you have any specific questions regarding a company, Suburban Transmissions can provide insight into our experience with that company.

Remanufactured Transmission Repair Warranty

Since better transmission repair warranties are known to produce more business, what criteria would a company use to determine the warranty period?

Companies offer warranties to consumers to address apprehensions consumers may have about the quality of the companies’ products, or to draw attention to the quality of their products. Transmission is only as good as the warranty behind it. A consumer may not expect a product to fail, but a strong warranty shows the consumer that the producer doesn’t expect it to fail. The potential benefit for the company is the increase in sales. The potential cost to the company is the loss due to untimely failures. Since a longer warranty will yield more sales, what criteria would a company use to determine the warranty period? The answer is the point at which the overall cost of warranty covered failures becomes higher than the overall benefit. The bottom line: If a transmission shop doesn’t have confidence in their product, neither should you. Suburban provides a 3-year 100,000-mile warranty on all of its overhauled transmissions.
