Good price for the car!! The tranny replacement will cost $200 to $500 depending on who has one and how bad they want to get rid of it. I am assuming manual...I saw an automatic for $100 on some site just last week.

Several folks around the Seattle have parted out some of these cars. You will not regret buying this wonderful car.

The tranny from several years will fit. Just have to be careful that the drive shaft length is matched for the new one you get. If you get a chance might want to measure the length of the one from the car you get it from.
