Transmission problems


Asked by whv002 Dec 11, 2010 at 12:32 PM about the 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Under normal takeoff,  the transmission does not shift to highter gear until engine reaches between 3500 and 4000 RPM.s

1 Answer


I just bought a 09 dodge grand caravan sxt, and have noticed the exact same thing! I plan to take it to the dealership since it is still under its 5 year, 100thousand mile powertrain warranty. I wonder if it is normal, or something defective with the transmission. I can feel it shift when it does, like its shifting hard. I only have 33457 miles on my vehicle. Hope its not something wrong with the trany, my ford loving husband will never let me live it down
