1996 Chrysler LHS Owner Comments

problem #7

I am having problems with the transmission down shifting on it's own at low speeds. Also the vehicle keeps veering to the right and left. Have replaced the control arms two times due to break of bushings. The bolts attaching the steering rack do not keep it secured to the chassis and moves as the steering wheel is operated. There was a recall issued for the suspension control arm bracket in 1999. I have not been notified of this recall and need to know how to receive notification to have the part replaced. The vehicle's manufacture date on the driver's door indicates the manufacture date August/1995.

Transmission is popping from drive to lowest gear at 45 mph and is causing the vehicle to stall. Consumer will take vehicle to dealer for inspection. This has happened on several occasions. This times Chrysler said it was the speed sensor and this last time the consumer it was told the solenoid. The car stalled on several occasions while on the highway doing speed in excess of 60 mph.
