Transmissions on american cars are messing up too early. My friend's Dodge caravan went out after the 36000 mile warranty, month later. Other cars the solenoid on upshifts 1-2 and 3-4 were causing harsh upshift problems on many cars. Old cars before 2000, transmissions did not fail for more than 10 years, today's model transmissions were causing problems the first 3-5 years. These problems on the 2002 Buick Century happened the last 3-5 years. 1. Harsh upshifts on transmission, 1-2 3-4. 2. Power windows, after 3 years, didn't work on rear windows and were to slow on the front windows. 3. Steering wheel stereo controls volume was never fixed after taking 5-10 times for repairs. These were thousands of dollars I was spending for 4-5 years of driving. If nothing was done about this I will be turning Toyota, camry. Your advice will very gladly be appreciated.
