      Scotty, my 2011 Hyundai Sonata 2.4L randomly buckles (feels like it slams into gear). I noticed it happens more at low speeds with the transmission in the highest hear and it starting to happen more frequently. Do you think it's the torque converter locking and unlocking, but not pulsating? Is there a way to fix it? I had the dealership change the fluid years ago. The gear slamming/jerk happens at autoshift 6th gear.

      I hear you Scotty, but if their smart they'll adapt and learn new job skills to keep their positions and pensions. Remember at the end of the day its Dodge/Chrysler fault for not keeping their company moving forward to begin with that put them in that position.

    Totally true what Scotty says about Continental vs.United airlines. Continental was a great airline since the early 90's up until the merger. Continental won awards every year, and was making money. United was running a potential merger partner, not an airline. Their equipment was never updated. They were a bloated mess of bureaucracy. Worst of all they were a financial disaster. Larry Kellner at Continental pulled out of the merger at the 11th hour after a good look at United's financials. United was within 6 to 9 months from chapter 7 liquidation. It would have been much better for Continental to cherry pick what was left of the UA assets instead forcing Continental to waste their hard earned profitability to pull UA from the trenches and raise their wages 50+%. Instead, banksters and lawyers who stood to profit from the deal going through made Kellner go away (pursue other interests) so they could force the deal. Instead of adopting Continental's highly successful policies and culture...UA due to it's slightly larger size...has largely forced their miserably failed policies, culture, and bloated bureaucracy down everyone's throats....instead of adopting what worked they allowed what failed to dominate.

    SRT was going to die sooner or later. Tightening emissions and mph standards have made them unsellable anywhere outside of the US and were headed that way too. In another ~5 years or so they were going to be restricted here as well. So from a business stand point I do get it, why waste any more resources on something doomed anyway? Tho as a SRT fan it sucks 😔

    I think it's a brilliant move. Now they can focus on their core competency and primary value proposition--quality. The Dart was the single biggest competitor to the Corolla after the entire rest of the industry, and the 500 Abarth beat the Supra in every single metric except all of them. At this rate, they are poised to continue to produce things.

    It’s not shut down. Ralph Gilles posted to social media that SRT will still be around. The people keeping it going may be a little different but the way he put it sounded like those people that were “disbanded” will still be involved in SRT but will also have a much bigger role in the company going forward.
