Re: Outlook Dead After 93 Miles

We were driving our new Outlook home on 3/21, and the transmission acted up (wouldn't shift out of 2nd/3rd gear), check engine light went on. My wife taught me some new words that night. Got back to the dealer as soon as we could, but it was closed. Snuck in behind the cleaning lady, and, luckily, a tech was still there. He read/reset the codes, which indicated some type of valve/solenoid problem in the trans. I was ready to drive through the window, find my trade-in keys, tear up the paperwork, and forget the whole thing.

Took it back next day. Luckily, they only had to flash the trans computer, and it hasn't happened since. If they would have said the trans needed to be replaced, I would have either taken my trade back, or told them to give me a new one.

I would exercise the 30-day exchange policy if, indeed, they want to put a new trans in.
