For what they charge for these cars they should replace the trans. Technically after 3 tries in your state you qualify for replacement of the vehicle or reimbursement.
To be eligible for arbitration, your vehicle must meet one of the following conditions:
The vehicle defect or condition must "substantially impair the use, value, or safety" of the vehicle.
The car must have been taken in to the authorized service agent for service 3 attempts to repair the same substantial defect.
The vehicle must be out of service for at least 15 days (cumulative, not consecutive) due to the substantial defect.
NOTE: The Florida lemon law only applies for the first 24 months after you purchase the vehicle.
