Transmission gave away at 378 miles!

Edmunds.com logo Edmunds.com 7/12/2015 Matts Mathews

After two months of research, i decided to go purchase a new Armada SV to avoid the troubles that come with a used one.Everything was fine until recently & i even loved the driving experience- it even gave me 13 mpg in city as stated in their manifesto ,haven't driven it long enough to comment on on Highway mpg . However just 2 weeks of ownership and 378 miles, the transmission gave away at a stop sign near a small bridge and the vehicle started rolling backwards.I barely managed to drive it back home,On further inspection the transmission fluid leaked all over the place, still don't know what the exact problem is but its most likely the transmission.Unfortunately this happened on a Saturday evening, hence no support or on call. I have to wait until Monday to report this issue to the dealership, and will update this review on how it goes after that.Either ways, this was not expected from a new Armada- which is supposed to be a rock solid vehicle. Disappointing!!!
