That all depends on the condition of the rest of the vehicle, if it's pristine and everything else works then I would fix it, but if it is showing its age and has other problems then get rid of it before it totally goes bad. It is your vehicle so it is your decision.

Have your gotten the used/rebuilt trans replacement $2500++++ quote yet? I see many of the owners walk away from these, but like said above if its in nice shape otherwise, you may get another 10-12 years out of it with mostly serviceable part fixes and replacements and servicing since you only drive 10,000 miles a year. Which is far below the cost of a new car. If so keep the fluids fresh and filters changed and do not let it run hot ever, when talking about servicing I mean preventive maintenance, like putting new thermostat in it before it fails, and new radiator and heater hoses replaced before they burst. New drive belts before they break ect.
