car   Transmission Gear Slipping problem 1
Failure Date: 12/22/2001

The transmission has been repaired twice. The first incident was at 32,716 miles. The symptoms at this time was a transmission slippage when at idle (and a grinding noise) and a hesitation to go into reverse. The transmission was rebuilt at the dealership (seals replace). After driving approximately 200 miles continuously the transmission suddenly failed with no prior warning while driving 65 mph. We were barely able to pull off the highway in heavy traffic. The transmission has been replaced with a new one. How can a vehicle go through 2 transmissions in 33,000 miles? I had my family (including 2 children under age 2) in the car during this. We went from 65 mph in heavy traffic in the middle lane to 20 mph in less than a 30 seconds with the rpm's redlined. We were lucky not to have been in an accident.
