About the 8L45 & Common Problems

The 8L45 is an eight-speed automatic transmission built by GM starting in the 2016+ model years.

Used 8L45 vs. Rebuilt vs. Remanufactured

If you’re having problems with your 8L45 you’re going to want the most economical solution.

A rebuilt 8L45 will only have a certain number of components that get replaced. So the service life is limited, and the warranty will only last 1-2 years.

A used 8L45 is pulled from a wrecked vehicle, so there’s no telling what may be wrong with it, or how long it will last.

A remanufactured 8L45 on the other hand, is completely remanufactured, and it’s designed to exceed the manufacturer’s original specifications. That way you get a longer service life, along with a 3-year/Unlimited Mile Nationwide Warranty.’
