Bent wheel if vibrerates, does so all the time.

Auh... CARfucius say.....

Often times when it comes to cars many problems that arise are simply coincidental in nature and not necessarily related to any thing that was previously just done on them.

The universal perplexing question to all cars...How come after you wash them they always seem to run better?

Washing the exterior of a car has no physical effect on the mechanical running condition

The mileage of any parts life span of operation is approximate or estimated but the reality there are way to many scenarios and combination of events that can cause a part to fail in any amount of hours of operation or miles.

My 2004 is also doing this...When it started, it was "banging" hard into second gear...my mechanic did a relearn, and it stopped...now, as stated by the OP, at 10-13mph it drops down into first gear hard...not all the time though, but OFTEN...

from time to time, I also get a vibration of the brake pedal.

most times this is a slight, bump when dropping from 2nd to first gear...some times it is almost like I got hit in the back end, i can feel it in the floor..

2004 pt cruiser, non turbo, automatic...69,000.
