Help! Roanoke, VA

I am looking for someone in the area who has a hemi, preferably an overland to compare rides with. I am still convinced, despite what dealer says, there is something wrong with my transmission. I want someone else to drive mine to compare.

Whats the issue with the tranny? And have you gotten a second opinion from another dealership by any chance? Might be worth a shot. Also you can test drive a v8 hemi 2011 new to compare, right?

Re: Help! Roanoke, VA

I have taken it to another dealer. I have had front differential replaced, every service bulletin performed. The car struggles to down shift and clunks. When I accelerate it feels like the car is fighting it, with vibrations that are noticeable by passengers. Both dealers say thats how car is made. Thoughts?

Re: Help! Roanoke, VA

Look up Virginia Lemon Law. 33 days? You have to be getting close to the lemon law requirement for days in the shop. It wouldn't be in the shop that long and they wouldn't have replaced something if they really thought it was fine...sounds like an incompetent service shop. Check your lemon law..might just be a lemon.

Re: Help! Roanoke, VA

The true days at dealer is 18. It has been there 33 because the dealer is 1 hr from my home. I cannot make it during week. I will look at Virginia lemon law. Any thoughts anyone?

If you are in Roanoke, I'd like to compare.

Re: Help! Roanoke, VA

Test drive vehicles on their lot, if they don't do the same thing, have them explain the reason why yours does.

Re: Help! Roanoke, VA

Here's the link to the Virginia General Assembly Law regarding the "Lemon Law". DMV. Basically, if your vehicle has been out of service for 30 calendar days or more, had 1 or more attempts to fix a MAJOR SAFETY issue or 3 or more attempts to fix a non-comformity issue...you qualify. Not sure what you meant by 18 "real days" but if it's been 33 calendar days, it qualifies. How many separate times have you taken it in for the same problem? Time to file the lemon law my friend.

Re: Help! Roanoke, VA

I would say based on his explaination, its been in the shop for 18 days. 33 total because he can't get to the dealer to pick it up. If its done on a thursday but he picks it up saturday, you can't include those two days YOU didn't pick up the vehicle. I assume thats what he means...
