Dodge made a dog with this transmission. I've had the torque converter replaced, should have kept the old one as it only had one speed range for shutter. The hills of NH do not play well with the Nitro, you either have full power or no power going up hills. During icing and snow going down hills vehicle shutters. Just to let you know, this is my 2nd Nitro, 1st one was replaced by Dodge @ 21,000 miles 6-months old, This new one has about 19,000. lemon law comes to mind now and will contact Dodge to give them a chance to replace this with a different model SUV or pick-up. Was willing to go into a pickup but they wouldn't allow the rebate? Watch out for the cruise control, if you need power fast you may have little as the electronic throttle control doesn't like manual inputs from the driver while engaged. Notified NHTSA about these issue (view complaint), they seem to be not too concerned until someone in a Nitro can't get out of the way of someone bigger and is hurt or killed. I'm also a firefighter-medic and Cop. Responded to several emergencies. Will not overtake vehicles anymore as you can loose power while overtaking vehicles due to TC lockup or no lockup depending on situation. Good luck and give yourself a wide space between you and the bigger guy.
