Chrysler has yet to do anything and I am not the first to complain about this. Had it repaired at a five-star dealer three times. It happens very intermittently but it still does happen. This morning I had to play with the shifter before it would go into reverse. It just passed 3000 miles. The transmission fluid on a Chrysler Town and Country should be changed every 30,000 miles or two years whichever comes first.

Said it was worn out already. Transmission leaking fluid 2,200 miles. It will turn-off later, and then return.
The transmission did fine until around the middle of 2003 when I noticed the transmission problem again.
