I Do Not Feel We Should Be Responsible For This On Going Problem. The contact stated that while driving at 70 mph, the vehicle stalled.

The manufacturer was notified of the failure and informed the contact that they did not think it was a safety concern. While it only happens intermittently, I wonder how long the tranny can hold up with this kind of stress. The manufacturer was made aware of the failures. Dealer ordered seal and replaced under warrenty.
In addition, the contact stated that the speedometer gauge failed to provide the accurate reading.
