You may be able to find a salvaged transmission near you, or locate one on-line that is rebuilt. You can research to see what option may be best for you. If the engine is in great condition then it may be to your benefit to install a used or rebuilt transmission rather than a car payment. Whatever is economically conducive to you and your budget. You may think of contacting local transmission shops on price quotes to get them to rebuild for you as well.
Check the blue book for value of car. If repairs exceed value -sell the car

Hello Bee- it honestly depends on the cost of the transmission & labor- the resale value of Saturns have dropped considerably since GM announced they will no longer produce them- the NADA book value of your car is $1050-$3500 - so I would say the choice is up to you - if you own the car outright it may be worth fixing if you keep maintaining the car you probably have 50k left in it - hope this helps.
Thanks, Super Girls Auto.
