My Saturn was recently diagnosed code P1811. Can I drive it 5 miles/day? on 2003 Saturn L300

I know this is an expensive repair, right now I don't have the funds. I was quoted $2000-$2500. In your opinion is it worth having the repair? It has 72,000 mi., good condition. I'm trying to avoid having a car payment. Any advice is welcomed.

It's a better payment then a car payment. You could shop around, but you need to have it done right, with no cutting corners.

Get another opinion from someone that can test your vehicle out first hand!! Independent trans mechanic is your best bet!
