: A6 Transmission blown

My beloved 2001 A6 4.2 with 89 K lost reverse. the shop says the transmission is done.
a remanufactured tranny is about 3000 plus labor. or i can buy a 45,000 mile, one owner clean identical car from a non audi dealer for about 13K.(with 4 yr after market warranty.)

I thought this drive train was bullet proof. is this normal? should i replace the tranny and do the timing belt? or keep my car as a parts car and buy the other?

the shopper always unhonest. looks for some others
