Automotive terminology can be very confusing. Rebuilt vs remanufactured (reman) is one of those subtle but important differences when shopping for a replacement transmission.
Remanufacturing is a process often done outside of the repair shop in a very controlled environment. Remanufactured units have been engineered with problem components being identified and upgraded. The units are tested before installation to ensure high quality and returned to Original Equipment level performance or better before final delivery to the shop for installation. There are two big advantages with Certified Reman Transmissions 1) Warranty and 2) Turn around time.
Rebuilding is usually done in the shop. Depending upon the facility, they may replace a complete set of wearable components or they may just replaced the items which failed. Which means there can be a wide degree of variance in what defines "rebuilt". These units are not generally tested before installation and the warranty is often substantially less than a remanufactured product which is the main reason they often have a lower price. Since they are rebuilt in the shop, parts become an issue and often effect the length of time it takes to deliver the vehicle back to the customer.
