A few days ago a reverse gear on my Taurus suddenly has gone.
In the very beginning it did not work at all. If I put clutch to the
reverse gear the car did not react at all (i.e. it was the same effect

would start moving ahead even though it was on the reverse gear.
After some while the reverse gear started slowly return back to work,
although the traction on the reverse was really anemic and inadequate.

Mechanic advised to replace the whole transmission and the total cost of
the replacement is 70% of what the car worth.
Did anybody have similar problems?
The other gears are fine. Would the problem with the reverse effect the
