Even if you are not all that familiar with what is going on under the hood of your car, you’ve probably heard of the transmission before. This vital piece of machinery acts as a gearbox that is mounted onto the engine itself. The transmission then converts combustion power created in the engine into physical momentum.

The average transmission has either five or six sets of gears.

Buying a new (or new-to-you) car is a huge financial investment. Before you commit to taking out an auto loan or forking over thousands of dollars, you want to be sure that a vehicle is the right fit for you.
