THE TRANSMISSION STARTED TO DEVELOP A SHUDDER AT 140000 MILES. I HAVE TAKEN IT IN MULTIPLE TIMES TO GET LOOKED AT. THE LAS RESORT WOULD BE TO GET A NEW TRANSMISSION. THIS ISSUE CAUSES THE CAR TO NOT TAKE OFF RIGHT AWAY OR SHAKE PRETTY BAD MAKING IT SEEM OR FEEL THAT IT WILL STOP, SHUT DOWN, OR JAM UP EVEN WHILE DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD. I HAVE READ THAT THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THIS VEHICLE MODEL. IT HAPPENS AT STOP LIGHTS, WHILE RUNNING, AND WHILE TURNING. PLEASE INVESTIGATE THIS MATTER BEFORE MANY PEOPLE WASTE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS TRYING TO INVESTIGATE THIS ISSUE. THANK YOU

WHEN STATIONARY AND THE KEY IS INSERTED, THE IGNITION SWITCH WILL NOT TURN THEREFORE THE ENGINE WILL NOT START. WE HAVE ALREADY TAKEN IT IN FOR THE RECALL AND ALL THAT WAS DONE WAS THE KEY WAS RETROFITTED BUT THE IGNITION SWITCH NEEDS FULL REPLACEMENT. THIS HAPPENED PRIOR TO THE RECALL AND CONTINUES TO HAPPEN AFTER THE RECALL. REPAIR COSTS HAVE BECOME EXPENSIVE AND UNAFFORDABLE!!!
