While driving approximately 25 mph, the entire vehicle began to vibrate severely and a metal-on-metal clunking noise emitted from the transmission. This time we had to replace and rebuild the transmission, I don't like shelling out that kind of money when Dodge is fully aware of this problem and refuses to recall the vehicles which they are aware of with the solenoid issues either getting stuck open or closed and making the repairs, making it very costly to the consumer.
