Go for it, if the exterior is in excellant condition, than the car will be good for lots of years to come!

i dunno probably to late to answer for ya but i have a blue on blue 71,000 factory mile one with sunroof and i see them on youtube with 105,000 miles for $1400

Pick up a used transmission with less miles than yours for about $900. No need to buy one new. Search online for salvage yards that have em for your model and year. Some yards will even give you a 30 day warranty, so you can install it, drive it like you stole it and if it breaks give you another one.
