A rebuilt transmission on this model runs around $1,700.00 to $1,800.00 before tax and all, so the price you got seems right. As far as labor, it varies depending on the location, what kind of shop you take your car to (dealership are more expensive), etc so I cannot say for sure $1,200.00 is right or wrong for your area. Have you called around to find who has the best deal in your area? You can also look online to see if previous customers of this shop were happy with the work done. A lot of time an angry customer will go online to post his frustration against the shop if he feels he got ripped off or the job was not done right. You can call the BBB or go to their website and see if this shop is listed as a BBB member or not.
I am a little surprised your transmission is fried after only 89,000 miles though. GM transmissions have a five years/100,000 miles warranty. Have you ever got it serviced?
