The 2nd gear in my 5-speed transmission went out. Car only has 75,000 miles, used to drive around town. Don't know if I should try to replace transmission or buy new car. Blue book used value for geo only about $1000. pretty sure tranny work will be at least that. And advice?

You may be able to find a used trans for $200 or so. The car is very small and the trans is easy to replace. Food For thought. Good Luck!

Aamco rebuilt my Metro trans for $1300. That included a new clutch. As the price of gas goes up, the demand for Metros does to. If the rest of the car is OK it is worth getting it fixed.
