Love the Car Hate theTransmission Leaks

Over all I love the look and handling of this car. Plenty of room for the grandkids and all their toys, etc. On the highway gets decent gas mileage however, the intown mileage stinks. The price you pay for the HEMI. Main concern is the transmission leaks and the wheel alignments. We've had it to the dealership twice for both issues and were assured that the problem was fixed; 5 months later we have another transmission leak and it already feels like the front end is out of alignment. (We just purchased new tires before the last alignment)Tires are very expensive for this car and they are already showing significant wear without a lot of miles on them.
The interior comfort, the stereo, and the nav system. With the Hemi it is definitely not your Granny's wagon. Very sleek styling. Fun to drive with plenty of get up and go.
Get the issues resolved with the transmission leaks and alignment factors.
