#1 - Automatic Transmission Cooler problem of the 2000 Plymouth Grand Voyager
The car involved was a 2000 Plymouth Grand Voyager. On 1-13-01 rouen Chrysler tightened trans. Cooler line clamps(2250mi. ) on 1-27-01 rouen Chrysler r/r trans. Pan + gasket (2589mi) on 2-26-01 rouen replaced a trans. Cooiling line clamp(3269mi) on 2-28-01 rouen Chrysler r/r trans. Pan and used silicone sealant (3335mi. ) on 3-19-01 I spoke to charles owens a Chrysler district rep. Who instructed me to take my vav to charlies Dodge in maumee, OH. For further service. (transmission still is leaking fluid on floor or driveway). On 3-22-01 charlies Dodge replaced a solenoid pack and tightened trans. Cooler lines(3950mi) transmission is still leaking fluid. On 4-12-01 charlies Dodge replaced the entire transaxle assembly with a "Chrysler reconditioned" transaxle assembly. On 4-14-01 I attempted to drive the van to flint michigan to bring a relative home for easter. After driving 60 miles on the expressway with the cruise control engaged at 70 mph the van suddenly shifted from overdrive to a much lower gear nearly ejecting my wife and I from the van. Also we were nearly struck in the rear by another vehicle. I disengaged the cruise and it made no difference the van did the same thing several more times. We exited the freeway and drove home at 35-40mph on two lane roads. When the van was returned to the dealer on 4-16-01 they found the problem to be a defective vehicle speed sensor that was installed with the "reconditioned "Chrysler transaxle. Why would a dealer put a "used transaxle" in a "new" vehicle and take a chance of having such a critical component as a vehicle speed sensor using an old component that could cause such a severe action as to injure someone or many people? the Chrysler dealership service manager could not answer this question. I think I know the answer it must be cost. This automatic transmission cooler problem happened on April 14, 2001.

I pulled to the shoulder of the road and observed transmission fluid leaking onto the ground. Vehicle was towed to dealership where it was purchased and a loaner was provided. Mechanic discovered quater-sized hole in transmission caused by unknown part being propelled through case. Chrysler refuses to cooperate with me or dealer.

#9 - Automatic Transmission Cooler problem of the 1996 Plymouth Grand Voyager
The car involved was a 1996 Plymouth Grand Voyager. I have received a recall notice for a radiator fan relay, which is not mentioned on your site. Today, I found a new leak of transmission fluid, the red lights are again flashing on and off, there are power surges in the control panels, the engine chokes and shudders. Oh, and the a/c is out again. We won't even mention the windhield wipers which have continually gone on and off since we have owned this car, or the airbag alarms, or the incredible amount of money we have put into this maintained car. My 20,000 car has become a 40,000 lemon. There is simply no excuse for this, mileage or not. I have attempted to keep this car because I wanted a "safe" car for my teenagers to drive. Now, it appears I have them driving the pinto of the 1990's. I thought I was keeping my kids safe!! when the engine failed, I had the car taken to an non dealer becuase I am fed up with their attitudes. . . What do you expect at 100,000 miles, etc. When the first diagnostic was ran on the car, a bewildering array of codes came up. After changing the spark plugs, all of the codes dissapeared. However, the electrical problems increased in intensity, and now I'm afraid my daugher will go up in a fireball. I already assume there will be no response from the manufacturer. . . . I am going to consider a suit as I consider these cars dangerous! fuel leaks, static charge buildups? come on!. This problem occurred on Fri., Jan. 7, 2000.
