Auto has good body with some cosmetic issues. It has been stored every winter (we are in MN). 80,000 miles
Had to downshift recently to avoid collision. This lost Reverse, 1st & 2nd gears.
Dealer states that we need:
- Main belt
They are offerring a rebuilt transmission for $2400 with a 2 year warrenty.
Also available to us is a transmission with 80000 on it with no warrenty for $500. This belongs to the shop manager and would be a private deal.
- How many miles should a transmission last under normal conditions?
- Do we sepnd the 2400 or the 500?
- Is 500 a decent price?
- Or do we sell the car as-is and cut the losses?
Thanks...confused and need advice
