The automatic transmission may develop a 2-3 shift flair. This is commonly caused by an internal fault related to the reverse clutch assembly. Replacement of the rear housing and reverse clutch assembly may be required to correct this concern.

Purchased used with 37,000 miles on it. 1 week after getting car started to have trouble. Had a warranty so they replaced Trans with rebuilt one. 2 years later same thing happened and the trans had to be replaced again. Still have the hard shift with the 2- 3 flare. AAMCO does not know what to do to fix it!

Car started vibrating weirdly on highway. Pulled over and it seemed to go away. Continued on pulled over at gas station and car vibrated loudly and wouldnt go into park drive or reverse. Waiting on diagnostic but told the transmission is shot.

The transmission has n strong noise when the mileage was less than 40,000. While driving the noise was very loud and I parked. The change even though it was in 3 stayed in neutral. Bring it to a mechanic who tells me there to repair the transmission.
I had the same problem. Took it to a trans shop they told me the rings were bad and needed to be replaced. For that and the reprogramming of the trans and of course labor I paid $934.

When trans needs to shift to 3rd gear, it will jump to neutral instead. Local reputable shop recommended replace with rebuilt trans at $3700.
