So I've had my '97 'Corde for a total of 3 weeks. Good thing it's certified. My tranny crapped out yesterday on my way home from work. It started shifting hard... then slipping... then kaput when it tried to downshift to get up a hill. Nothing like having the engine turning 5000 rpms and the car is rolling backwards while the dash display says I'm in neutral, drive and 3 at the same time. Boy I love roadside assistance. I only have reverse and 2nd. Dealer's supposed to call me this afternoon to tell me what's going on. Has anyone ever had any problems with this transmission suddenly dying so fast that by the time you realize something's wrong it's dead. And for no apparent reason, especially at only 55k?
