Looking at the age of the vehicle - I would not invest $5000 in it.
Look in your local business pages for second-hand parts dealers, and get a quote for small garages to do the work of replacing it.
Chances are you will find a low-milage transmission for $250, and pay around $200 to have it installed - so for $450 you're good to go again.
If this was a younger vehicle, then yes I would go through dealerships to keep the logbook perfect; But at this age it's only 3 years off it's designed lifetime, and 10 year old vehicles are very low priced.
