1996 Chrysler Town & Country Owner Comments

problem #3

Mar 152003

Town & Country

  • Automatic transmission
  • 114,000 miles


Intermittent loss of speed. Transmission stucks at lower gear. Vehicle runs fine for a while and suddenly jumps to lower gear, bringing the van to a sudden low speed. Luckly escaped from a major accident while overtaking a truck on highway at the speed of 70miles/hr. Showed the vehicle to Chrysler dealer. They just kept the van for long time and replace a piece of wire and said its good to go. But problem came back again after a week. Now they say all wiring has to be replaced which could cost me like $1700 to $1800. I'm the second owner and I take good care of this van, changing fluids, filters & stuff. If this is engineering mistake by Chrysler with their transmisson, then shouldn\\'t they take care of this issue. I spoke to Chrysler customer service and they said since this van is out of the warranty they are not responsible. Thanks.
