Ok, took truck to dealer for 80,000 mile service and brake recall. Talked me into fluid exchange on truck for warranty. After $900 drove home seemed to be ok. Hook trailer up go to tourney out of town, get there fill truck up and go to ramp, starts lurching high rev jerk jerk shifts hard jerk jerk, make it to ramp unload park truck. Come back in load boat drives ok. All wknd runs ok back and forth to ramp. Head home runs ok with a few hard shifts in trans. Get home back boat in garage unpack truck go to pull out and turn around starts revving and jerking again even in reverse. Head to dealer next mornin couldn’t get a mile from home starts again turn around and barely made it home. Call dealer they send tow truck. Dealer calls and says they drove it and drives fine no codes. Now the flame is getting higher on my back side, told them there’s a full tank of gas and toll tag get on highway and drive it like ya stole it. They call and said the mechanic said it had to go to trans shop, imagine that, then have to wait 2wks to look at it back up, the flame just got real hot on my a— can’t get loaner til they diagnose it. Rent car for transportation and go over there and start a nice rip. Said no problem til you guys serviced it finally got some attention and said they’ll squeeze it in. Get call later says torque converter shot and shift packs, but not anything they did when serviced, right, see if warranty will cover but had to approve $650 tear down to fix. All I know is that extended warranty from dealer better fix it.
I have never serviced a trans. on any vehicle and drove them with no problems, but service this one and bingo. Last truck 185,000 and towed all over with it wish I never traded it.
Rant over!

Sorry for your troubles.

I think the way in which they are serviced is more of the problem than servicing them. I have always changed the trans fluid and filters on my vehicles, but do not do flushes, just drop the pan change the filter and re fill. Had a 700r4 with nearly 300k miles on it of commuting, towing a 30-foot TT a 20-foot boat and probably the hardest part of its life a stint of 10 years with a high school and college kid at the wheel. That trans was still solid the day I sold it.

If you are going to want to keep it long term and have it be reliable it needs to be serviced.

99% of aftermarket warranties are garbage.

I've heard many stories just like this one. I've never had an automatic transmission serviced and I've never had a failure.
