problem #1

(reported on)


  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
When on an incline the transmission fails to hold the car when the brake is released, causing the van to roll backwards. This happens on slight inclines. The dealer claims this is normal, but with the 15 other automatic cars I have owned, this has never been the case. This occurs when the car is warm and does not happen when the car is cold. The rolling occurs in drive or reverse on even the slightest incline. Chevrolet has not responded to my inquires regarding this issue. I am concerned that the rolling will cause an accident.
