1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue • 167,000 miles

I have a 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue GLS with 167,000 miles. My check engine light came on a few weeks ago, so I took it to a repair shop to do a diagnostic test. I was given a code P1811 from the mechanic and was told that I needed to take it to a transmission shop for further testing.I went to a few transmission shops and was told by both mechanics that the transmission was going bad and that it needed rebuilt and that it is going to cost me $1300 for the repairs to complete this.

This car is in good shape other than this issue, just wanted to know if I should have this repaired or just get rid of it?

Can you replace the car for that amount? Is the rest of it in good shape? This is a personal decision. If you are ready to spend 15-20k for a car then go for it.
