By "stops moving" I mean no forward or reverse movement. My thought is; it may be a drive axle/shaft joint and not the trans. Not that this is the case. It's just a possibility. Your mechanic is correct, on these units, it's better to replace than repair IF, it's definately the trans itself. See if you can find out what he "thinks" is wrong. It's your money, he should be able to tell you something for $3500. I'm going to do a little more research on this trans and edit it to this post.
EDIT; I looked again and there are no TSBs or recalls listed for your vehicle. I'm still concerned about, external causes other than the transmission. Also, to reiterate, If your mechanic can' give you a "rough" idea what's wrong, I'd surely get a second opinion. We're on "your" side here and don't want to see you get ripped. Again, please advise.
