  1. Ok, so I guess I mis-read the quote. It actually included two options, $4500 for a rebuild or $5500 to replace the tranny, the dealer did not do a good job of explaining the paper they handed me haha. I replaced the A & B shift solenoids as well as the throttle position sensor (I'm also having a low idle issue), and it seems much better but still fairly rough. It doesn't BANG down into second any more but still lurches pretty hard. The fluid seemed pretty healthy after just 4000 miles and the magnet was pretty clean. I'm going to make a point to keep the fluid extra fresh and see how long I can keep this transmission going, but I am optimistic that it will last a good while longer.
  2. I'm in the process of dealing with what sounds like the same issue and I thought I would share my experience on here. I have a 2012 with 66K miles that has been hard downshifting from 3rd to 2nd. It is a really loud, jarring bang. It had been doing this for months and then finally after a long drive I got the service wrench (orange light) to turn on after multiple hard downshifts. I took it in to the dealer and they charged me $150 to tell me that there was an internal transmission failure, and gave me a quote for $10,000 to put in a new one, or $8000 for them to rebuild it 😡 I am going to pull the transmission pan (again) and see what the magnet looks like after I cleaned it 4000 miles ago. Also going to replace solenoid A and B. I don't really expect it to resolve my issue, but it's a cheap part, and the transmission seems to shift buttery smooth otherwise, so I'm holding out hope that it is something simple. But I do fear that it is a deeper issue that will require a full rebuild or replacement.... I also have a low/rough idle which I thought might be related since the computer could be having a hard time rev-matching if it can't control the engine speed, but that seems like a stretch. Oh, and the dealer charged me another $150 to tell me that the idle speed issue would be fixed with motor mounts LOL. In summary DON'T TAKE IT TO THE DEALERSHIP
  3. EDIT: Now considering any offer. I want to get rid of these seats! Wondering if anyone is interested in buying the rear seats from my 2012 Connect. I just bought the van in January and it looks like the owner didn't use the seats at all. Unfortunately it looks like they got wet at some point and there is a stain down the center of the middle seat. It's honestly not super noticeable and could probably be removed with some TLC. This package includes all three headrests, seat belts, and every single bolt/screw that you need to mount the seats I am in the Denver metro area so a local pickup would be ideal. I am also happy to work with a freight company of your choosing, but I have no idea what I am doing so you'll have to walk me through it.
