Thank you very much for your donation. It helps to keep the website free and that is our goal, to give free information as car problems are costly enough.
When you look for a transmission make sure you have a part in choosing it. You can try to get a Japanese Domestic Market, "JDM" transmsion which will have about 30,000 miles on it. This is because Japan has a law to replace engines at 30,000 miles and there are people who replace the transmission or very often just get a new car. So, there are basically new transmissions to be had, but not as many as engines. Just search the web for JDM transmission dealers or engine dealers. They are about the same cost as any used transmission and shipping is included and you should be able to get a transmission for under $1000 shipped.
Thanks again and take care.
