Should I repair my automatic Rover 75 that's lost its reverse gear?

I own a Rover 75 2.5-litre v6 automatic. Its lost reverse gear and I can't find a garage local to me to repair it. Seems a waste to get rid of it but what would you do?
On automatics, a piston cracks and a 3rd to 4th gear problem shows up, then gradually spreads as the bits from the damaged piston spread. Reverse goes next and soon there is no drive at all. Reconditioned JATCO 5-speed automatic transmissions £900 + VAT from Another highly recommended specialist is
