WHEN OPERATING IN DRIVE POSITION THE VEHICLE WENT INTO NEUTRAL WITH LOSS OF TRACTION, DRIVE POWER COULD ONLY BE RESTORED BY SELECTING DRIVE POSITION 3. THERE WERE SEVERAL SUBSEQUENT OCCURRENCES OF THE PROBLEM ONE OF WHICH NEARLY RESULTED IN A REAR END COLLISION. A TRANSMISSION REPAIR SHOP DIAGNOSED A NEUTRAL SAFETY / TRANSMISSION POSITION SWITCH FAILURE. THIS APPEARS TO BE A REPEATING COMPLAINT THEME WITH THIS VEHICLE MODEL. THE OCCURRENCE IS UNNERVING AND COULD RESULT IN SEVERE (POTENTIALLY FATAL) CONSEQUENCES.
