Quick back story here, brought our 2005 Mitsubishi Endeavor in for a transmission fluid change or “flush” at a local quick lube. Car was running perfect, just needed to have the maintenance done. They used Wolf’s Head synthetic ATF. Car seemed fine, drove it for a while, then it stalled on me when slowing down for a light.
The next morning, it took about 30 seconds to shift into reverse (it slammed into it), same for drive. Went lurching down the driveway, it tried to find second, RPMs just went way up. Found it eventually. I drove back to the place (very close) and they adjusted the fluid (said it was overfilled) and told me to drive it and let them know. It is not any better. Now they want me to get 3 estimates (are you kidding? $$$) and then if all three mechanics find that it is their fault somehow, then they will pay for the repair. They said there is some sort of Michigan law about that, although I can’t find it. Was going to take it on a trip this week, but now it sits in the garage…
Any advice? Do I have any recourse with the quick lube shop?
I don’t know what to do…I am afraid I made a $3000 mistake.
