Will not shift into 2nd gear. Happens about every 4th occurance. Taking to dealership this Friday.
Car won't engage 2nd gear every so often so I shift from 1st to 3rd. Doesn't happen every time.
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.
