problem #1

  • Automatic transmission

The check engine/transmission light keeps coming on. I brought it in once they replaced a hose. A few days later it came back on we brought it to a differant shop they reset it and blamed me for it. Stating that I leave my car run when I put gas in it and that is why it comes on. Well the light came back on and we are working on making a 3rd appointment to get it fixed. If its doing all of this now while still under warranty what happens after the warranty!?
