    Guides & Articles
    In this article we'll look at the differences between a "transaxle" and a "transmission". In short, a transaxle performs both the gear-changing function of a transmission and the power-splitting ability of an axle differential in one integrated unit. A transmission performs the gear-changing function only, delivering power via a single output shaft at the back of the unit. Although both perform gear shifts in the same fashion, there's often confusion about these two terms because the word "transmission" is sometimes used as a blanket description to include transaxles when it should not be.

    "I had to call to make sure this is right part, and Apollo K. was informative and not afraid to ask someone else if he had a question. This is why I keep coming back to CARiD! The part was perfect. It came quickly and saved me a lot of time and cost."
