Get ready to spend another 1,000 to 2,000 to rebuild it

Keep shopping. This is obviously why the car is being sold! It's not worth putting a transmission in a 12 year old vehicle, in my opinion. These cars were also plagued with and recalled for airbag system problems. As well as other electrical gremlins. My neighbor had one just long enough to pay for it. HTH. -Jim
