I would shop around. I just found one with 68k for $1700 shipped. Check on eBay or check out the attached pick for something close to you. There is one with 53k for $1700 in Dover FL.

I would also be looking for another Indy. That was way too much for a 100k tranny. I hate when shops try to take advantage of people.

Lol that is real funny. $1500 markup for a 2 year warranty. Believe me when I say if a tranny goes bad before 30k (15k average per year) then it was not good to begin with. Get one below 90k and you will be good for at least 5 years. Also make sure you are changing the tranny fluid every 30k or so. These transmissions are hard to kill. If I were you I would find someone to put it in for cheap ($400) and do everything else myself. I have a person in Tampa that will do it for $350 if you provide the fluid. Don't get hood winked. Shop around if you're not willing to pay a lot for it. "Just because you have the money doesn't mean you should waste it" is the motto I live by.
