Transmission problems are common in this model, often as a result of a failed front pump. The pump loses its ability to create hydraulic pressure, which an automatic transmission needs to function. A sign of front pump failure can be a whine type noise.

I have yet to have this problem fixed due to the fact that I'm not sure what is exactly wrong with my car. The transmission acted as if it could catch the right gear and would jerk. Now it's worse and takes a while before it will even go into gear
