problem #1

  • Automatic transmission

The problem has occured about 10 times. The vehicle loses speed but the tachometer rpms increased. The speed will drop to 5 mph and then increase up to maybe 20 mph and then drop back down. It won't go over 20 mph. The condition laste D for a couple of minutes. Either the conditions corrected its self or I had to stop the car and restart it. When it first happened the dealer indicated that it was related to the traction control which was struck on. The dealer now said that there were no error codes on the computer, so the only thing to do was wait for the car to break down. Since I lost speed in traffic I felt that thiswas a safety issue.
