    Newbie Check-In
    Hi all, my wife has a 2009. Just recently the transmission started acting up, I think. And this came right after we determined the alternator was bad. While my mechanic was checking the alternator (grinding/growling from inside the part), we pulled a P0700 code for the transmission. We read...
