We have a 2007 Volkswagen Polo, purchased from a dealer in Melbourne late last year with 133,000Kms for $7,000. The automatic transmission started slipping especially changing from 1st to 2nd, worse in traffic.
Expecting the worst we took it to a VW dealer for inspection and have been told it needs a new transmission, est cost $13,000!! Too rich for us, wondering what the costs are for reconditioned transmissions? Are they reliable/worth it? Are there any other options?

Thanks for any help
