The vehicle has a 6 speed tranny in it. That is not very common in the industry. It is to try and improve fuel mileage in a larger vehicle. It is something that my wife and I are just starting to adjust too after a few months of ownership ourselves. I was a little disappointed at first but it does help on long trips in the MPG department, so all is good now. My wife had the cruise on the other day and it slipped for a minute too but kicked the cruise off right away which I thought was a GREAT safety item. Also she was well aware of the slippery conditions so it was no big deal.Chris K said:Well, we're going back for the third time for the transmission problem - it downshifted on ice last week and scared the poop out of my wife - I think we're dealing with as much a safety issue as we are a acceptable drivability issue.
I have composed my thoughts in the form of a letter which I will deliver to the Service Manager of the dealership - summarizing our experiences to date and reqeusting prompt and thorough repair. AND, I have listed the fixes noted on this forum simply because I can't see anywhere on the Service Invoices where these fixes are listed by job number.....
So, my guess is that it's going to be an interesting week!
Not trying to be a bad guy here but if your wife is driving and there is a possibility of ice, I don't see how your so upset when it slipped. Thats what happen when theres ice on the ground. ???If the cruise was on when it happened then its not the Outlooks fault either. Sorry to pee on your wheaties but thats the truth.
