problem #1

May 032003

Astro Van 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 21,000 miles
When accelerating the van jerks until you resume one speed, and when turning corners it jerks, and when sitting on an incline ready to pull out when you let off the brake it rolls back.............the van only has 23,000 miles on it......the mechanic that looked at this said it is the viscus clutch in the transfer case, and that he has repaired many Astro vans with this problem. I bought this from an individual just three months ago, and I am told that this will be anywhere from $1,550 to $2,000 to fix this. I am requesting an investigation into this model of van (Astro), and seeing if this will be a recall and fixed at there expense.I feel a van with only 23, ooo miles on it should not have this type of problem.
