BUY REBUILT OR USED TRANSMISSION

1989 Volvo 240

Transmission problem
1989 Volvo 240 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 195000 miles

Need a replacement tranny. Used ($350 with 90 day warranty) or rebuilt ($1320 + $175 shipping with 1 year warranty)?
I found a place that will install for $350.
Any thoughts on what is best to do?
I want to keep my car indefinetly.
Thanks!

How many miles on the used ones?

Refurbished/rebuilt are usually fixed after something goes wrong, so I would stay away from them.

Lots of money in the rebuilt, I would go with the used one. You could have 3 put in for the price of the rebuilt one.
