They say it needs to be replaced again. I like many things about this car, but really feel this loss of traction upon acceleration will cause an accident--we live on a busy road and timing is crucial to pull out of our driveway. How many miles is on it, and have you kept the tranny fluid changed every 30k or so? Guess I could do it, but the headaches involved. I got some diagrams will post later of the solenoids, and which are which. There are toyo tires and I have one 34,000 miles on them. Check the oil level regularly.

I used it in my old mazda 3 and had over 100k with no issues in the trans. I didn't change any of the solenoids. The driver's-side seat in the second row offers an under-cushion storage bin, while that on the passenger's side has a clever fold-out cupholder with a storage compartment made of netting.
