2005 Honda Rancher transmission problem.

My fiancee's 05 Rancher with I think about 3,300 miles is starting to have some transmission problems. She bought it used in 2009 in like new condition with low miles. It is the 400 version with the automatic transmission.

It's been used hard on the farm for almost 10 years and is now starting to slip and make some noise. Oil used has always been Honda GN4 10W-40 chanced when the change oil message comes on.

I know this transmission doesn't have the greatest reputation. Can anyone tell me what the average price to repair or rebuild one of these is? I'm not sure it will be cost effective given it's age if the repair is going to be very expensive. Thanks for any info.

One way to tell if its low on oil, is when doing a hard turn on the gas, cant recall if its left or right tho will sound like grinding.
