Is replacing the transmission worth the cost?

Asked by Jul 18, 2017 at 02:09 PM about the 2000 Ford Escort STD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2000 Ford Escort with just over 105,000 miles.  The transmission is going out and should be replaced.  Is it worth the money to keep this car going, or should I look into getting a replacement?

Price a transmission and see for yourself. You need to gauge the condition of the rest of the car. If it is in good shape and you like the car fix it. The transmission could cost $3k installed but you can't buy a decent car for that price.
