Hating Mitsu......

Brand new car...2 tansmissions within 4k miles...

I started hearing a clunking, took it in, they said there was nothing wrong, two days later the tranny is gone. I start hearing it after a few weeks AGAIN, take it in, they say nothing is wrong AGAIN. What do ya know two days go by and it goes out again. So far in the first 2 months this car has left me pounding sand twice, while my 10k focus has never let me down.

I would try to make them take it back as a lemon. If its brand new and they have put 3 trannys in it in 2 mounths i think that would be considered a lemon!!! i would try to push the lemon law on this one!

Better read that law first. It has stringent guidlines. I would look into it though. Better to be armed first before you go after them.
