I have a 2000 Ody with the notorious transmission issue. I can get a "remanufactured" for $3300 with a 5 year warranty (total, installed, etc). Or a "rebuilt" one for $2200 with a 2 year warranty. I know the 5 year will offer more peace of mind. But my question is WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE two? Will the "rebuilt" one have possible issues later because it's just rebuilt whereas the "remanufactured" one is newer and I'm assuming better??? I know there's no crystal balls here but anyone have experience? Thank you in advance!

"remanufactured" vs "rebuilt" is just symantics. The terms are used interchangeably in this context. You might want to ask specific questions of both vendors regarding which parts are replaced, etc.

If you search "Jasper"& "Gator"

You'll probably get all your answers.

You pay more because the warranty is longer. In essence, you pay for the security of not having to pay any more money in the next 5 years if something goes wrong and the seller/installer of the transmission uses your extra money to assume that risk. Otherwise, the transmissions should be the same.
