2004 Mitsubishi Montero Sport
I purchased the vehicle from drivetime and the service engine light came on immediately. It went off after I turned it off. 2 days later the a/t temp light came on. The 4h light came on and the anti lock brake light came on. I called the warranty company and I was sent to a mechanic who removed all the electric connectors and pronounced the car fixed. 2 days later the a/t temp light came on again I was sent to a transmission specialist who changed the transmission
2 weeks later the light is on again anytime I drive more that 40 miles.

The contact owns a 2001 Mitsubishi Montero Sport. When entering a highway intersection or accelerating from a stop at 5 mph, the vehicle slowly gained speed as if it were in second gear. The only way to correct the issue was to restart the vehicle. The neutral indicator light illuminated when the failure occurred. The dealer stated that there was a service bulletin for this failure and the transmission may have to be rebuilt. The VIN, engine size, and service bulletin number were unknown. The failure mileage was 92,000 and current mileage was 100,000.
July, 2005 a/transmission shifting erratic, slipping, creating hazardous driving conditions due to loss of control. Mitsubishi dealership performed a/t flush and erratic behavior was cleared. On first road trip after this repair, the neutral shift indicator, "n", began to flash after vehicle was traveling on highway for 45 minutes. According to the owners manual, this indicates the a/t is overheating and vehicle should be brought to a stop to avoid damage and/or injury. I have taken the vehicle back several times without any resolution as the dealership claims they were not able to duplicate my complaint. On my last visit of 12/19/06, the dealership recommends I upgrade the a/t oil pan to a larger one per TSB 00-23-008 at my cost. This potential fire hazard is not due to a damage or a part that has worn out. This is an obvious design defect that the manufacturer should correct at no cost to the consumer. Please assist me in resolving this situation.

While driven at 85 mph vehicle caught on fire under the hood. Prior the incident dealership provide a general tune up. The insurance company indicated to consumer this vehicle had recall on transmission, and that was the problem.
I bought the truck on a cloudy day. When the sun hit it, it had swirl marks burnt into it from where it was buffed at the factory. When turned in they buffed it again. Now that it rained it still shows all. Another problem is the transmission. It has severe lag and sometimes won't shift at all.

While driving, the automatic transmission temperature light illuminated. The consumer pulled over to check the owner's manual. The manual stated to pull over and wait until the automatic transmission temperature light goes off and to proceed driving. The consumer started driving and the transmission illuminated again. The consumer managed to pull over again. The engine started to smoke and the consumer took the vehicle to aamco transmission who diagnosed the transmission as being damaged and needed to be replaced. Upon completion of the transmission, the vehicle continued to experience rough shifting.
Vehicle won't engage when shifted into drive and reverse (acts like it's in neutral). Only happens when vehicle is cold (under 30 degrees outside). Sometimes will slam into gear causing the vehicle to lunge forward. Very dangerous in our opinion. Vehicle has 146 miles. Dealer had vehicle twice for 2 days each and say they can't reproduce the problem.
When driving gears will change and make vehicle end up going slower. At other times, vehicle will stall. Contacted dealer, and dealer was not willing to do anything.
