Transmission Service?

I have a 1999 Vovo S80 with 250,000 Km.Brought it in for Transmission Filter %26amp; Oil change.Techs showed me Oil pan with large pieces of clutch material in it.

Car was road tested everything still seems to be working fine.

Suggested tranny rebuild for approx. $1000.

How common is it to find such material in pan?Transmission Service?
Very comon thats why you change fluid.Transmission Service?
Trust Me a Brand New Car comes off the assembly line, as soon as they crank the motor, shift the transmission, it through off the metal flakes, Do they also need a new transmission?

Ask them this question, you'll get the proper work done.Transmission Service?
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.Transmission Service?
Transmissions don't need rebuilt if the clutch is wearing, it means you will need to replace the clutch. They are trying to hose you. The mechanic knows the tranney is fine, so if you pay for the rebuild, he is going to clean the outside of the tranny, replace a couple old bolts and laugh at you will drinking beer with his buddies. Don't fall for it.

Drive it until the clutch starts to slip, then tell a mechanic you need a clutch replaced.
