No sorry, usually that can't be bought at any local auto parts store, you would need to purchase online or at a dealer parts department/order it. I know there are two available,. one for column shift and one for a floor shift transmission lever. The cable will run you around $60-$100. Labor to install, depends on who does it. figure an hour or two? If you need the car on the road fairly quickly, usually you can see your mechanic and they can procure one pretty easy with the part supply company they use and fix on the same day. Ask them before you drop the car off.
