    Default Broken Gearbox

    Hello everyone!

    I have a really bad problem. I've got a Vectra C 2003 1.6L 16V. Yesterday, the gearbox just went dead. I was driving when suddenly, in drive mode, the car got stucked in gear one, after some revolutioning, it could change to gear two. After that, changing from gear to gear (upwards and downwards) in drive mode was a nightmare, making it difficult to drive. I decided to try gear mode, but it just jumped from gear one to gear 5!!! I returned to drive and I could arrive home. I've taken it to a Vauxhall (a General Motors Concessionary in the case of my country), and just read what they've told me: "Mr., your car's gearbox is broken, we will have to replace it and it will cost you 8000 dollars". Yes. Yes. Eighty Thousand Dollars. It's almost a new car for god's sake, it's not driven in awful roads or in awful ways. It's got only 31 000 miles. I can't afford paying that insane quantity of money, could it be a manufacturer's origin defect? Besides that, if I had decided selling my car before this disaster happened, I could've sold it in 13 000 dollars, do you think it's illogical that a technical repairment costs you almost the price of your car?

    Edit: it's eight thousand, not eighty thousand. By the way, how can I edit my posts once they've been published?
