Chrysler Pt Cruiser owners have reported 2 problems linked to transmission noise (under the power train category).
#1 - Transmission Noise problem of the 2003 Chrysler Pt Cruiser
The vehicle involved was a 2003 Chrysler Pt Cruiser. The VIN of the problem Pt Cruiser is 3C4FY48B93_. I have a 2003 Pt Cruiser with 82000 miles on it. In March of 2005 with 47765 miles on it, I took the vehicle to a Chrysler dealer to repair a vibration while braking. The Chrysler dealer noted there was a grinding noise coming from the transmission and stated the compressor was rubbing against the front frame due to some kind of collision and stated there was a broken motor mount. We took the vehicle to the dealer where we purchased the vehicle to address this diagnosis since this was a new vehicle when we purchased it. The dealer claims they found no broken motor mounts, no signs of accident and did not even address the transmission noise. On 11/17/2006 I was traveling on a two lane highway with my 3 year old daughter at night, and without warning,noise, hesitation, or lack of power, my transmission went out. I was not able to move in any gear. The vehicle was towed to the dealership where I purchased it and they told me it has major transmission damage and the transmission needs to be replaced. The cost of the transmission replacement is $2715. 00 and the dealer will not cover any of the cost. This transmission noise problem happened on Nov. 17, 2006.

#2 - Transmission Noise problem of the 2002 Chrysler Pt Cruiser
The car is a 2002 Chrysler Pt Cruiser. Was driving along and the transmission went out at about 35,598. 00 miles . The brakes make a god awful noise I have had them checked they say nothing is wrong but I don't believe them the brain box went out the same time as the tranmission. The dashboard on top has cracked for no reason the car is garage kept it pulls to the right for no reason they say and it has started making rattling noises from the passenger side the trunk lid shocks are given out and the car just turned to 40,000. 00 miles I think they make them to break at a certain tine and no one will do anything about theses problems I think my next car might be a Toyota at least they don't fall apart so easy because I baby this car like its the only one I will ever own if Chrysler wanted to do the right thing they would take this lemon back and give me a new one free of charge and I would do the Chrysler adversement all over it for them as long as it looks good . Because I have no money for another new automobile have a family to take care of and im not allowed to work anymore
this would be a great thin tanks for listening. It was Tuesday, March 20, 2007 when this transmission noise issue happened.
