Your Transmission: The Unsung Hero of Your Car

Many people don't realize how a car actually gets up to speed when you are merging onto the highway or speeding up to get through that yellow light. That is why we here at FIAT of Portland want to be sure that you know the basics of your vehicle's transmission.

The transmission is what shifts gears in your vehicle as you accelerate. You can think of this like a manual bicycle that you switch the gears on once you've picked up enough speed. A manual transmission takes the work out of this process and switches the gears for you at specified intervals.

Experts say that a transmission will last somewhere around 100,000 miles, but this number of course can change depending on how hard you push your vehicle. If you feel your vehicle's transmission needs servicing or you would like us to do a general check on it, feel free to give us a call to schedule an appointment today!
