Having once bought a truck years ago with a totally new design and motor that turned out to be a giant lemon, I began wondering if this 'new' five speed auto is really a new trans or, like the Pentastar motor, has been in other Chry. vehicles for a while. I'm understandably gun shy about buying new designs on such important components. :nonono:
