car   Automatic Transmission Floor Shift problem of Chevrolet Traverse

The VIN of this vehicle was 1GNKVFED3B_. I am writing to inform you of a recent safety issue we had with our 2011 Chevrolet Traverse. On Wednesday, April 25, 2012, I was parked in said vehicle with the keys out of the ignition, pumping gas at smokin joes on indian hill in lewiston. I had all three of my children, ages 8, 6, and 5 in the vehicle. While pumping gas, my vehicle began to roll, ripping the gas nozzle from my car, spilling gas. I began to run after my car and thankfully it stopped just before entering oncoming traffic. I thank the grace of god that my children were not injured…my husband looked at the gear shifter and he was able to pop it out of gear without the key in the ignition and his foot off the brake pedal. On Thursday, April 26, 2012 I took my car into kipo. They looked at my vehicle and also confirmed our findings, that the car does, in fact, slip out of gear when the key is out of the ignition and the foot is off the brake pedal…contact with bill wirtheim, gm of paddock Chevrolet, where we purchased the vehicle. Mr. Wirtheim contacted general motors, who then declared my vehicle under gm investigation. A driver from paddock came to our home to pick up our vehicle. We were contacted by justin,a representative from gm on may 3. Gm return phone call from him until Monday, may 7. He just wanted a recap of what happened. That same day, my husband followed up with paddock, who claimed they believed the vehicle to have been already repaired by kipo, which it was not. This afternoon, bill wirtheim contacted my husband and told him they will fix the vehicle and we can have it back. Apparently there was a liquid that had previously spilled over the gear shifter that shorted out. We are not satisfied with this response. This wasn't just an issue of a gear shifter shorting out while parked in our driveway. Our children were in the car that was parked on an incline of a busy gas station and intersection and could have been killed. This problem occurred on April 25, 2012.

I became aware of the defect when I came out of work and went to my parked car, started the car, and when I shifted my automatic transmission lever, the car would not move. None of the gears were working. I had to call a tow truck and wait over two hours and had it towed to a Chevrolet dealer 10 miles away for diagnosis and repair. It cost me over $400. 00 to get it repaired by the Chevrolet dealer. I asked Chevrolet if there was a recall on the shifter control cable and he said there was none that he knew of. I searched the internet for some information on the shifter control cable and found numerous complaints on the same thing happening to them with the same type car. This car should be recalled by general motors - Chevrolet division. This is a very dangerous thing to happen to anyone. I could have been on the road or parked on a hill which might have caused harm to me or any other driver of my car. It was Monday, September 12, 2011 when this automatic transmission floor shift issue occurred.

car   Automatic Transmission Floor Shift problem of Dodge Avenger

The vehicle is a 2008 Dodge Avenger. I was leaving work for the day and started my vehicle as usual, but was unable to shift from park to reverse or any other mode for that matter.

I started over, ensuring that I did both and was still unable to shift out of any other mode but park. This has happened almost daily since April 9th, 2012 with the only remedy being that thousands of others have complained and blogged about it online and posted quick fix remedies for the exact same problem.

The car was a 2005 Dodge 2500. There was crash involved with this problem.

I complained to the servicing dealer in 12/06 and numerous parts were changed in the transmission. The changes helped temporarily but the problem came back. I returned the truck to the dealer in 2009 for the same issue and was told the transmission was performing to specs and no work was performed to correct the problem. On 11/14/2011 I exited the vehicle with the transmission lever in the park detent postion and the engine running. After about 15 seconds the truck shifted into reverse backed into a vehicle and a building. Chrysler investigated the incident and informed me that the vehicle is out of warranty with 118000 miles even though no repairs were done when requested while under warranty. The truck has a factory recall to install some sort of alarm. Chrysler says the recall was mailed to me in 2006 and 2007 but the truck was at the Dodge dealership for this complaint after the supposed notifcation and while covered under my Chrysler 100,000 mile extended warranty for two days and the recall was not performed. Research shows this is very common with this model truck with pages upon pages of these incidents retrieved by conducting an internet search and I cannot believe a fix cannot be found for this issue or the government is not forcing Chrysler to correct the issues. This issue happened on 11/14/2011.

car   Automatic Transmission Floor Shift problem of Lexus RX330

The car involved was a 2004 Lexus Rx330. Crash happened when the problem occurred. My wife had pulled routinely out of our driveway on a clear morning with no obstructions on the road, she turned out of the driveway onto our private road and SUV then suddenly and violently accelerated out of control, rocketing her into a tree and stone wall. The air/knee bags and active seat belt restraint were deployed, saving my wife's life. The investigation by the Lexus front office in torrance revealed that vehicle was performing according to specs. I had noticed a revving noise on day one of purchase and mentioned it to the salesman who said he would look into it. With no further information the dealer suggested mentioning the problem at the 1000 mile check-up. Nothing abnormal was detected, though my complaint was recorded (April '04). The revving noise continued intermittently but without incident until June 30, 2004, the date of the crash. Upon hearing of a Lexus SUV incident in my town, I decided to check the ntsb database. I was astounded by the concensus of complaints involving the power-train. I have been a Lexus owner since 1995 (SC 300 coupe) and have driven a number of RX 300's and one other RX 330 (as loaner vehicles). I believe in the product so much so, that I would entrust the safety of my wife and children in a Lexus. How many fatalities will result before a recall is issued?? the malfunction apparently defies diagnostic detection. This automatic transmission floor shift issue occurred Wednesday, June 30, 2004.

car   Automatic Transmission Floor Shift problem of Lincoln Navigator

The car involved is a 2003 Lincoln Navigator. The transmission shift interlock has failed - effectively leaving the vehicle stuck in park while maneuvering the vehicle from a stopped position and attempting to move forward. This is the second time this has happened. Luckily, it was not in an emergency situation where we needed to move right away as indicated by a previous poster. For some reason, the transistor in the transmission shift interlock fails, effectively leaving the vehicle in park. As there is not a safety override switch that is handy, or a slot to put a key in the console to override the interlock - you are basically stranded. Per the owners manual, you have to remove a portion of the console with a screwdriver (potentially damaging it) and manually push a lever - in order to move the vehicle. This is rather dangerous, and I am now on my third one - there are no modifications to this vehicle. It was Friday, March 21, 2008 when this automatic transmission floor shift issue happened.

car   Automatic Transmission Floor Shift problem of Mazda MAZDA3

The vehicle is a 2008 Mazda Mazda3. I parked my car on numerous occasions in the last few months where the transmission failed to engage in park. It required multiple tries to get the park indicator light on the dash to reflect that the car was safely engaged in park. Before I realized what was happening with the transmission. On at least 3 occasions I was unable to start my car at all when I returned from a brief stop. The problem with failing to start happened when the car was on a slight incline and I had engaged the parking brake. After jiggling the automatic transmission lever repeatedly, moving the steering wheel and applying the brake vigorously, I was eventually able to get the car to start. I'm not sure whether it was rocking of the vehicle from frustration or jiggling the gear selector that finally worked. The car has a new battery and has had all scheduled maintenance performed by my local Mazda dealer. When this happens, other electrical equipment functions but there is absolutely no response from the ignition system. It was Fri., Nov. 1, 2013 when this automatic transmission floor shift issue occurred.

Won't move out of 1st gear (5 mph) or at all. Rain on an open convertible shift lever (my problem) and/or coffee or beverage spills from holders positioned directly above the shifter can trigger vehicle incapacitation. . Consumers have to self-insure against this hazard as benz won't cover this widely known problem by warranty. Repairs typically cost more than $1000 with towing. There's no warning to keep the lever dry to prevent vehicle incapacitation, not by the lever nor in owners manual; there's no emergency bonnet for quick cover. There's no consumer warning. Many benz owners experience this problem but benz makes no recall. The condition is a standing joke with tow truck drivers. . . "another benz". All benz personnel contacted by cell phone (NY & CO) know the problem, but "consumer beware. " a small amount of fluid incapacitates the vehicle and subjects the driver to potential accidents and roadside threats&the car must be towed/parts ordered. We lost five days ruining our vacation. The in-trunk shield to receive the retracting top was ajar because we had just removed light bulbs to return to a store&the top would not retract until the shield was adjusted. The car has an extended lease warranty but benz doesn't cover damages as (the 2 minute downpour) they view the rain as an act of god and I should contact my insurance company for towing and repair. To me, this is insurance fraud. The dealership provided neither the parts nor the bills, but charged costs of repair and towing on my american express card without my signature. The card was provided the CO dealer to cover any potential costs of a loaned vehicle. I still don't have the actual invoices the for approx $600 repair and $300 tow (although I have requested them by fax). Neither keeler benz of latham NY, gauzer benz of westminister CO, nor Mercedes Benz will rectify the problem. . . 25k mileage.

car   Automatic Transmission Floor Shift problem of Subaru Outback

Two problems: 1) if driving in snow, snow packs into the wheel well and prevents front wheels turning properly. I carry a weedout, other people I have talked to carry ice picks and trowels for getting the snow out. This has happened to me since Dec 2010, whenever driving in wet snow. I heard it discussed on car talk, so I know it is a common complaint. 2) manual transmission linkage is now exposed on the underside of the 2011. The car gets stuck in one gear and will not shift. Happened in 2nd and 4th. I got it to the dealer and they removed sticks and gravel from the linkage. They said they had many 2011 manual transmission subies in that week with sticks and gravel in the linkage due to the bad weather. I could not go up hills or start from a stop when it was stuck in 4th. I could not drive over 20mph when stuck in 2nd. I could not reverse either way. This is not safe, especially when driving in snow and traffic in the mountains. I asked the dealer if they could put on something to cover and protect the linkage and they said no, ever since Subaru went to 6 forward gears the linkage is exposed and they cannot add anything to cover it. I think the 6 forward gear manual transmission Outbacks should be recalled, and they should go back to 5 gears forward and properly cover up the linkage. This automatic transmission floor shift issue occurred Jan. 18, 2012.

car   Automatic Transmission Floor Shift problem of Jaguar S-type

The vehicle is a 2004 Jaguar S-type. Upon purchasing the vehicle from the dealer in used condition w/ roughly 50000 I immediately began to notice shifter problems, especially if the vehicle was parked on an incline or decline. Shifter will become stuck and will not come out of park without great force, which then breaks the plastic piece which is necessary to change out the gears, resulting in complete immobility of the vehicle since the car was then stuck in park. Car would have needed to be towed if not for being able to take off the console piece to change out the gears w/ a screwdriver in order to just get the car to the dealership. This was less than a month after purchase. Upon complaint the dealership replaced the plastic piece or housing and attempted to charge $400+ but was told that it would not be paid due to having the vehicle less than a month. Not surprisingly,less than one month after repair the exact same thing happened again and once again the screwdriver aided in getting the car to the dealership where they went through the exact same procedure and "fixed"the problem again, this time at no charge. I am confident this problem will happen again, as the shifter still sticks just like it did before it broke either time and I am just counting the days till I am forced to once again break out the screwdriver and waste another full day getting it replaced. This automatic transmission floor shift problem happened on Oct. 28, 2004.
