Re: My transmisson gone!
not quite enough info....but on what you have said...it appears you were aware of no problem with the tranny???
if you weren't aware of a problem, why would the mech raise it.
80k...i reckon he intends to rip you!!!!
Get a second oppinion.....goto a tranny specialist. DO NOT tell them you have been told you need a new one....actuallly on second thought....goto a regular independant mechanic for a check over....tell him you want a thorough check....without pin pointing a specific item....see what he comes up with
80 k from a tranny....these days that warranty anyway!!
