new transmissions

hey guys i have a quick question for you. My transmission is blown and i have to put a new one in. The Geico man told me that toyota only sells a new transmission in a new vehicle, and the best thing they can get me is a remanufactured one from toyota. Can this be true? or is the insurance guy just not wanting to dish out the money for a new one?

i hit a deer and took out the tranny cooler which caused all the fluid to drain. Then the body shop drove it with no fluid in it

I don't thing there would be anything wrong with a remanufactured transmission from Toyota. If a Toyota transmission is like GM and Ford it will come with a bulletproof warranty. If it were me I think I'd investigate the strength of the Toyota warranty and not worry about whether is was new.

i called the toyota parts department this morning and they told me that i could not get a new transmission from toyota. Looks like the geico man was telling the truth. Thats still very odd in my opinion
