Also had the car basically lose the gear when decelerating when it probably should have been 2nd gear there was NOTHING, very dangerous since i take a left hand turn on the highway and twice now i've pressed the gas and there's nothing, engine just revves up, gotta get on the shoulder, stop, then it'll find a gear and i can go again, dealership has no answer. vehicle now has 13k miles on it...
Hi matt1975 and Cleric670,

I'd like to get you both escalated to your regional customer service managers. To get this ball rolling, I'll need you to send me a PM with your VIN, dealer, mileage, full name, and daytime phone number. I'll escalate your concerns and ensure that you're contacted promptly.

Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
