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 start...got 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)

Transmission failed while driving on interstate. Only had the car a few months. Engine runs but will not go forward or reverse. Mechanic said that intermediate shaft in transmission broke. Say it common failure. Says they usually on need to replace the shaft with a stronger quality designed shaft. Has there been any recalls from the dealer concerning this type of transmission failure?

The car started with a gearbox fault within 2 days of purchacing. The the car would go into a limp mode and you would have to pull over and shut the car off and it would start again, until it started saying engine fault. Turns out now we need to have the transmission replaced. The car will only go in reverse.

Within two days, my car's transfer case failed completely rendering the car inop. Dealer quotes only new, 3600 + 6.5 labor hours. The cost of repair is higher than the value of the vehicle.

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.
