grimmster, it holds up relatively well considering the package for the window tint specifically says not to use on plastic. I put a few clear-coats on to help seal it up. There is a little lifting on the edges from washing my car, so I think you might be better off using the spray tint and just spending quite a bit of time with it. And trust me, the spray tint will be alot easier than using tint film because I'm sure we all know how much of a pain tint film is.
I'm not sure exactly what is wrong with the transmission, but my uncle (who own's a shop, with some friends who own a transmission shop next door to him) said from what I explained to him, it sounds like the hub (kinda like a wheel hub i guess) breaks on chrysler transmissions easier than they should. It won't go into reverse at all with some minor clanking and knocks, even in park after puting it into reverse. Drive works intermittenly as of right now but with a loud squeal that sounds like a radio controlled car in all gears, including neutral and park when the car was warmed up enough. Just the drive gears when it's cold. Before reverse went completely, it would shudder quite a bit, vibrating my car really bad with a low frequency like going over a bumpy dirt road. As time progressed over the course of a few days, it would work less and less.
