Town & Country 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,200 miles
Events leading to failure are just standard driving conditions in traffic or interstate. Van completely loses power momentarily causing the transmission to slam back into gear and abruptly halt forward motion. All headlights go out causing zero vision. Dealers has serviced 4 times w/ absolutely no resolution. This is a serious injury or death situation just waiting to happen.
