Re: Missing 2nd and 3rd gear when cold, major shift lag when fully warm

UPDATE

I got the car back from the dealership on Saturday evening. I was out for the holidays and had limited time to drive it so i wanted to wait a few days before reporting back. Good news is they fully replaced the transmission. What a difference! Its crazy how much different it shifts now. Better than the day i got it. I also waited until yesterday and did a quick 0-60. It was cold, sorta wet, traction control off, no launch. just massed the gas and got a 4.3. I could not beat 4.6 before even in idea conditions before. So far I am pretty happy to have it back.

Granted it took a month to fix, I was hoping the 2000-3000 RPM vibration would go away. It is still very very apparent and driving me nuts. I also get a really strong smell of burning transmission fluid when the car gets hot and I am hoping it goes away in time.

"Impartial Services" got the car fixed exactly 24 hours before I was Legally applicable for Michigan lemon law. It was almost comical. Oh well. If anything else major happens i will easily be a shoe in.

I hope all goes well, i didn't want to get in a legal fight with Chrysler but i also don't like that they have done so much work on such a new car.

If anything else happen il update again but for now... Happy Motoring!

Glad to hear the big issue was resolved, but that rpm vibration and smell would still bother the hell out of me. Wouldn't those items still qualify the car for the lemon law?
