We have recently aquired this 4 year old vehicle which has 70 some odd thousand miles. Within three days of aquiring it the transmission went up in smoke. The first day we had a little bit of trouble with copied keys, and had to reset the engine computer. The next day my father drove it around a bit, then later finally gave it back to my mother with the licence plate and fees paid, so we took it to get my little 5 year old sister, I was driving the car, it went fine until we got her and headed back. Seeing as this is a smaller car than what I was used to driving and it should theoretically have a better p/w ratio, so I gunned it once. My mother was flipping out because this was her car now, not my grandmother's car. She said I'd break it or something. I wasn't worried until after a stop when it failed to creep well, and took a jab at the throttle inorder to move, it also clunked through a gear shift at least once or twice. was the damage done then or when I accidently slipped up when searching through the car in the dark and moved the gearshift lever and the car rocked forward. So any one else expierence transmission failure so soon?
