Re: 6 Flashes and 1 RO1 Done 3/26/15.

After 1,000 miles of AL with R01, tranny is performing better. The 3rd gear issue is much less of a PITA than it was immediately after R01. It needs to get a little bit better and then I can...

Re: Spring Road Trip in a TrailHawk

It sounds like a great trip to a wonderful region of the USofA. Two years ago I mountain biked the White Rim trail - 3 days for the 105 mile loop. Perhaps I should go back and do it in the TH!!

Re: 9 speed transmission?

Good Luck with that expectation!!!! V-6 TrailHawk? You bought the wrong vehicle if you expect 30 MPGs.

Re: 9 speed transmission?

Don't get this. The manual position allows driver to see what gear the tranny has selected, and to set a limit on the upper gear. This can force a downshift (increasing RPMs), but doesn't force an...
