did you replace the radiator?gogriz91 wrote:Bought new in 2005, (SE-Off Road). Kept thinking to myself "there but for the grace of God go I" when I read about transmission problems. Transmission started hard shifting into 2nd, would hesitate under load and vibrate. Took it to a dealer strictly to replace the fluid, didn't tell them about the hesitation. New fluid cured it for about 10 miles so off to the family mechanic where, $3500 later I have a replacement transmission with a 3 year warranty.
Whatever replaces this will be a manual that's for sure.
