On the first days of November, I stopped on a red light, when the light was green I started going. When the transmission reached the third gear, the engine revved up to 3000 + rpm. Took it to mechanic and used the scanner tool to found out that the transmission was slipping on the third and fourth gear. I was driving late night so not too many cars around. I had to replace the whole transmission.

car   Transmission Gear Slipping problem 4
Failure Date: 09/01/2004

2003 darango has been taken to jim's Dodge to have a problem fixed when you drive. They tell us that there is nothing wrong with it. While you drive the darango if you hit a dump it jumps to one side or the other it does not stay center. The transmission feels like it slips, or when it is started it like the vehicle just does not want to go. Jim'[s Dodge has told us that there is nothing wrong with the vehicle, but that seems to all we have had with this vehicle. One more thing jim's Dodge is not a very clean place to take your vehicle to have it worked on we have got the vehicle back with oil on the in side on the vehicle, on the paint, scratchs in the paint and on the bumper. The vehicle has come back with a very bad smell in it. It took us a long time to get the smell out. We called jim's Dodge and told them about the smell and they told us that there was nothing tha they could do about it. The date might not be exact be close.

Dealer completed 30000 mile service including transmission fluid/filter change and now transmission won't engage at all even though computer says it is. At least it happened at the dealership. They have contacted Chrysler for help diagnosing.
