I have no known defects: Everything operates as designed.

I do quibble with some of the pcm programming. I dont like the dead spot on the 1-2 shift caused by the pcm cutting power. I wish it would upshift to an indicated 6th (I know Chrysler calls it a 5-Speed) at less than an indicated 56 mph and that it would downshift to 5th automatically to maintain speed on grades. Instead it will lose 3-4 mph and then downshift from 6th to 4th. It is also slow to allow an upshift to 5th once speed is regained. On the other hand if I select 5th manually before I start up the grade it simply maintains speed in 5th.
