When they dropped the pan, did they at least replace the old filer before they buttoned it back up? And although the trans MIGHT fail at Anytime, why would/should it cost more when it does??? I'd drive it until the trans is Really giving you the "slip" and in the mean time go to another trans shop and get another estimate. BTW....that ol' trans has had a nice life.
