Purchased a vehicle specifically to travel long distance several times a year. Got stranded for a week, pregnant and with 2 children, out of state only 3 months after purchasing the vehicle. Although the transmission is covered under warranty, the financial hardship of towing, repairs, hotels, rental car, food, child care, and missed work has devastated my family. We were stuck on the side of the West Virginia turn pike, in the cold and snow, without usable hazard lights and had to call 911 for help.
