2002 X-type with just over 100k miles will not go in

2002 X-type with just...

2002 X-type with just over 100k miles will not go in reverse. Mechanic is recommending a rebuilt transmission at $4,000. Looking for alternative solutions.

Mechanic's Assistant: When was your transmission fluid last checked?

This my mom’s car and she lives in a different state. Uncertain but checking.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your X-Type yourself? What have you tried so far?

No DIY. Car was towed to mechanic. No other options tried at this point.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Think that covers it.

Hi, my name is ***** ***** is about right for a rebuilt transmission, your really only othr option is a used transmission, have you considered this?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Haven’t. Was hoping there was a different option. Given cost, seems better to use that as a 20%+ down payment on a new/used vehicle.

what shape is the rest of the vehicle in? how many miles does it have?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Minor cosmetic issues but in good shape for a 15 yr old vehicle. Mileage is just over 100k.

I would not spend the money on a rebuilt, but you can usually find a good used one for about 1100 dollars, it could last her a 3 or 4 more years,Tim
