      * How do you use your vehicle?
      * Is the transmission in your make and model vehicle known to be problematic or a simpler unit?

      * Is your vehicle subjected to special driving conditions such as extreme weather, trailering, unusual terrain or city use?

​​These and many other circumstances should be taken into consideration by you and your transmission diagnostic technician before a decision should be made as to utilize a reman unit or a transmission rebuilt to your specific needs.
