Will not shift into 2nd gear. Happens about every 4th occurance. Taking to dealership this Friday.
Harsh 4-3 downshift turned into grinding going into 3rd gear. In the shop now.
Gears grinding when downshifting from 4th gear to 3rd. That is the only time the gears will grind.
Car won't engage 2nd gear every so often so I shift from 1st to 3rd. Doesn't happen every time.
