I would get a second opinion, also when was it last replaced? Is there a warranty on the first rebuilt trans? It may not be worth replacing, the cost may be higher than replacing the car itself.

If the first replacement was a used transmission it's the luck of the draw. It could outlast the vehicle or quit next week. But if it was a rebuilt transmission you may be in warranty still. I'd look into that. Also, driving habits can effect the transmission's longevity. Always make sure you are completely stopped before changing gears. For example if you back out of your driveway every day don't shift into drive while still rolling backwards. Come to a complete stop. Then shift. My Sister is guilty of that and has killed the transmission in every car she's ever owned at least once! HTH. - Jim
