I bought mine in 2008 had around 75,000 miles 2013 the 4 and 3rd goes out take it to a shop 2,500 now 13 years have passed add 50,000 miles to around 126,000 now transmission 4 and 3 go out again.costed me 1,500 in towing fees to get home.now the Transmission shop wants 3,000 to rebuild.It’s only worth 10,000 now.I would have never bought this lemon if I new their transmission are crap.
