I have a 2002 Jetta Tdi 196,00 miles that needs a new transmission and I'm trying to decide what to do. Mechanic says $4000 to rebuild or $2800 for a used one (169,000miles). Hes says that they pretty much all go out at 200,00 miles tho. Is that true? At this point I'm thinking I probably should just look into another car but it makes me sick to think of giving up my TDI :( (the only available jetta on the lot is a '07 2.5L in my price range). I guess I'm looking for a tranny miracle. Lol what would any of you advise?

Can get a used TDI for about the same price, yep..

Transmissions go at many different intervals, depends on
driving habits, maint schedule, abuse; and sometimes
ya just got a bad one...

Thanks for the input. I was able to find someone to do a rebuild for almost the same as the used install.
