Why do we need to call or text, that's part of what this forum is for.

Who is "they" that told you ?

According to PT Do-It-Yourself, the problem could be the solenoid, module or it could be an internal problem. Did "they" have an OBDII scanner to help pinpoint the exact problem or just find the codes for you.

There are some owners that have had problems but more people haven't. Usually it's owners that haven't done any preventative maintenance or have used the wrong fluid. No, it's not common.

Sorry, I'm not in a position to say 100% that the TCS or TCM will fix it. If your having the dealer change one of those parts, ask him if he's 100% sure that will fix it. From what I've seen on this forum about dealers, I don't think they will say it.

You've changed the oil frequently, but your problem is with the transaxle. Have you ever had it changed or flushed.

I moved down to Fla from Maryland when I retired from the Government in 2000. I'm on the west coast about 90 miles above Tampa, 200+ above you.

There's two theory's on the tranaxle. Drop the pan change the filter every 30,000 or a full flush with a cleaner (that cleans the permanent filter) every 50,000. Whatever, be sure to use ATF+4 fluid.

There's a few different brands of good licensed ATF+4. The list was just updated about a week ago.
