car   Manual Transmission problem of Chevrolet Cruze

The vehicle was a 2012 Chevrolet Cruze. Purchased 4/25/2012. After driving a little, noticed lack of power, easily stalls, something rolling around in the trunk lid, console piece gaped out, passenger side tail lamp inside trunk bent, engine shutters (after 500 miles it started) when turned on and off. The lack of power and engine stalling are the major safety concerns. When in a stopped position, the car will stall when the clutch is operated correctly. While making a right hand turn from a stop sign, onto route 30, at a blind intersection, the car would not move, once I let the clutch out and was in 1st gear, the car just did not move, I had the gas pushed to the floor and I was only moving inches forward. I was scared, I had my child in the car with me, a tractor trailer could have come up on me 50+ mph hit me or swerved to miss me and hit someone else. The car finally moved after about 45 sec. I then got up to speed in 6th gear. The car then again lost power, I had to down shift from 6th gear to 4th gear to get speed built back up. I got home, about 2 miles, was upset and scared, called apple Chevrolet, the car sat until I drove it to the dealership 35 mins from my home the next morning. I told them that it does not happen every day so the chances of it happening again are slim. This would be the 3rd visit to the service dept for the lack of power complaint. I drove with the tech anyway knowing that it was not going to be duplicated. I told the service rep that I wanted a turbo boost gauge put on it because it does not seem to be boosting all the time. When I was called that my car was done and nothing was duplicated, I was told that it was boosting in range. When I picked my car up the next day, there was nothing on my bill that stated that the turbo was even checked. I was told that they cannot put every piece of equipment that they use on each car on every bill. Etc. . . This manual transmission problem happened on Apr. 28, 2012.

car   Manual Transmission problem of Ford Focus

The vehicle was a 2012 Ford Focus. Was told this car had "automatic transmission". After a few hundred miles on it, I noticed the transmission shifted sporadically and with no prediction. Engine shuddered, car lost power and was not safe to drive. The key here is no prediction as to how the car will react when under acceleration. Took to dealer and was told "this isn't an automatic transmission - it's a computer- controlled manual that has to learn how you drive". Dealer uploaded a computer update from Ford. The next hundred miles of driving almost caused numerous accidents due to lack of acceleration and uneven performance. 6/4/2012 I tried to merge into traffic and car refused to speed up. I almost caused a major accident, but numerous drivers slammed on their brakes and/or swerved and averted multiple collisions. Took the car to dealer 6/5/2012 and told them what happened. Was told by head tech "it just has to get used to how you drive". I told him there were three different people driving this Focus. He said we can't, because that would just end up totally "confusing" the computer. As the car is too dangerous to drive, it is still at the dealer. Miles on vehicle are under 800. This manual transmission issue occurred 06/01/12.

car   Manual Transmission problem of Ford Mustang

I currently drive a 2012 Ford Mustang gt coupe (this site will not let me select a 2012 Mustang from the drop down menu, only 2011), purchased 3/11/11. It is currently experiencing a "clutch stay out" problem. It is a six speed manual transmission. When shifting from first to second gear at high rpm, the clutch will not release for the shift until the rpms fall back below a certain level. I am unsure if this holds true for all the gears as my car is still fairly new and in break-in and I haven't taken any gear past 5k rpm. That said, the physical experience goes like this, "take first gear past 3k rpm, shift to second, car bucks, rpms fall, second is then engaged, car lurches/lunges forward after the clutch "catches" and then it launches one forward unpredictably. " this has happened to me every time I have shifted the car into second gear after taking first gear past 3k rpm. It was Sat., Mar. 26, 2011 when this manual transmission issue occurred.

car   Manual Transmission problem of GMC Yukon

The car involved was a 2002 GMC Yukon xl. GMC 2002, Yukon: the reaction sunshell broken inside of transmission. Only 64,000 miles. 1) no event leading to failure: called GMC peterson in gurnee illinois, GMC knows of this problem and in fact changed the design of the sunshell yet will not recover my cost. I now live in minnesota and GMC here is doing the transmission fix. 2) failure and consequences: could be extremely serious if driving on a busy highway. Loss of power and acceleration could cause an accident. 3) correct failure: GMC is doing nothing to correct this failure that I know of. Customers are being told that this is a rare occurrence. However, after talking with gurnee peterson GMC illinois and valley GMC from waconia minnesota, this repair is not uncommon and is occurring every couple of months. I feel this warrants a corrective action. It was Monday, October 10, 2005 when this manual transmission issue happened.

car   Manual Transmission problem of Hyundai Genesis

Vehicle identification number (VIN): KMHHU6KH0A_. The manual transmission in the 2010 Hyundai Genesis coupe is very problematic. Very often the gear selection is rejected not allowing the operator to up shift or downshift. Second gear and fifth gear are the worse. Grinding often occurs when shifting into 2nd gear or 5th gear. I was merging into traffic on interstate 495 in massachusetts when my car would not shift into 5th gear. The transmission simply started to grind. When merging into traffic at 50-60mph an operator needs to shift from 4th to 5th and I could not. I had to quickly downshift into 4th gear to try and keep accelerating. Any shifting into 5th gear after approximately 3,400 rpms resistance and often grinding will occur. This can very easily cause an accident, expecting to be able to shift into the next higher gear and not being able to do so. I have taken my car to a Hyundai dealer and "they could not replicate the problem". I took the service tech for a ride and the car ground into 5th, and I was then told "this is normal operation of the transmission". Hyundai does not want to remedy this problem, and eventually many Genesis coupe owners with manual transmissions will be using lemon law protection to have their cars fixed. This manual transmission issue occurred Jul. 18, 2011.

The vehicle involved was a 2006 Infiniti G35. At ~7,900mi, I took my G35 coupe 6mt to Infiniti dealership when I started hearing a knocking noise and noticed that the "check engine" light would come up every few times a week. I was called in 4 more times after that (every 1,000mi) specifically for oil-level testing. The dealership received an approval to replace the engine, and at 14,500mi, after just about 6 months, I drove out with a new one (10102-ac7m9). I was told to go easy for the initial 12-15k. After driving about 1000mi now, I am running low on oil. I just checked it myself. I plan on taking it to the dealership soon to record it formally. But this is not the only problem I am having, the new engine seems to be a lot louder and a bit sluggish too. . Yes. . Definitely not the ride I got used too!!.

car   Manual Transmission problem of Jeep Wrangler

The vehicle involved is a 2008 Jeep Wrangler 4-dr 4x4. I have a little over 45k miles on my 2008 Jeep jk and this started happening about 5 months ago. The first 1-2 times I sort of chalked it up to an unusual oddity. But it has now happened over a couple of dozen times! it seems to happen more and more now. This is a manual 6 speed transmission. . . . The problem has happened in first gear only. It always happens from a standstill stop. So I am stopped and in 1st gear (I know I am clearly and definitively in 1st gear as I am very conscience of it now!). I start going by slowly applying the gas as I ease off the clutch. . . And pop! the transmission snaps out of gear into neutral. It is a very violent experience. It gives the sensation of being hit from behind (what I thought the first time it happened). I am 47 years old and been driving a standard transmission since I was 15. This is the first ever of such type of problem for me. Nothing has been done as of yet for this problem . This is a very dangerous problem and at a busy intersection could be a potential deadly accident. I’ve read on many Jeep forums this is becoming a problem more and more every day going back to 2008. . The failure date was Monday, Nov. 15, 2010.

The man told me the engine/transmission was computer driven and ambient temperature and humidity were factors in the performance of the car. There was nothing he could do to change the situation, he said. Yesterday March 17, 2010, I had the car out in 60-degree weather and it stalled 7-8 times, always when I needed to accelerate from a stop. It is scary when it happens. So far the engine re-ignites, but I wonder when the day will come when it stalls at an intersection and an accident occurs. I am writing because I feel this might be happening to other Yaris owners. This issue happened on 05/04/2009.

car   Manual Transmission problem of Volkswagen Jetta

The car is a 2009 Volkswagen Jetta. I was driving on the interstate, at about 68 mph, when the engine completely shut down without any warning whatsoever. The car, having a manual transmission, was still in gear and slowed down very quickly without any warning to other drivers (no brake lights). I tried to push in the clutch and coast to the shoulder, and successfully made it off the highway. The car restarted, and I made it a few miles towards the dealer before it happened again, luckily on a low-traffic street. The car was towed the rest of the way towards the dealer and diagnosed as a failed high pressure fuel pump, causing catastrophic fuel system damage. The fuel rail, injectors, pump, tank, and all lines will need to be replaced as the result of the pump failure caused bits of metal flakes to circulate about the fuel system. The diagnosis and listed repairs were determined by the Volkswagen dealer. This problem occurred on Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2012.
