    Car started hesitating between shifts, then jerking between gears. Then it stopped after I hard accelerated thru the gears, using the sport shift or gas pedal floored and allowd the car to go thru the gears. It then worked perfectly for about 2 weeks. Then it suddenly started totally losing ALL gears, had to pull over, wait for a a cool down. Then it was limped about 2 miles into a garage, where it lost reverse. HELP!!!

    Transmission failed as well as the transfer case. Makes no sense after 41,000 miles to have this kind of failure.

    I put the car in reverse and it would not go...made a revving noise as I pressed the gas pedal...would only stop and about 10 feet. Forward was no problem. No warning, no symptoms....mechanic says I need a new transmission. $3700 on a 13 year old car...(I bought it in 2001)

    my 2003 Jaguar X-Type won't excel over 5 mph. This car is never driven as this is my 3rd car. I'm concerned that I might need a new transmission.

    Transmission failure while drivng. The fourth gear wAS DESCRUBED TO HAVE "DISNITIGRATED" Had to relace entire transmission. Dealer wanted me to pay 6000$ for repair in spite of there being a service advisory fro my make, year and model for exact same problem. Paid 3600$ at a very reputable shop instead.
