    Erratic . Shifting and speedometer does not exceed 20 mph, even though I am traveling in excess of 20 mph. When symptoms appeared, we had the taken the car to AAmaco to have it checked out. They stated the transmission had to be replaced. The symptoms have occurred twice since the repair. Now the vehicle is going to the dealer
