Safari 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 39,000 miles
Had to replace transmission at 39,000 miles. Then again at 131,000 miles. Now it is back in the shop with transmission problems yet to be determined at 149,000 miles. Judging from the complaints on the internet, this seems to be a defect that is costing the consumer a bundle of money. So far I have spent over $3000 to repair the transmission. I am now waiting to hear how much more I will have to spend. This needs to be investigated.
