Survival in an Age of Economic and Moral Stress

The lines between dedicated transmission-repair shops and general-repair facilities have become blurred, as trans shops are now doing more general-repair work than in previous times to help cover their overhead and the general-repair shop is now swapping transmissions and other components available through aftermarket rebuilders for the same reasons. It seems that nobody wants to turn away any work that will bring in more cash. This is a natural transition to the change in the repair business that is ongoing but also creates some new problems for suppliers and repair shops.
