The vehicle involved is a 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer. This was actually the second or third incident where the key got stuck in the ignition, blazer was in park the lights remained on so did the radio anything that is typically on during aux, but this was the beginning of a long problem that lead to me trading off. . The key gets stuck you can not remove it caused the battery to go bad, it would begin to happen often the service engine soon light would come on, the transmission would not shift above 3rd gear, also shortly after the purchase in sept of 2011 the speedometer stopped working. The blazer died 3 times gauges on dash would periodicly stop working. My service 4 wheel would come on randomly the key issue was the biggest problem but it was only a matter of time before other things went wrong. When the key would get stuck in the igintion as stated the transmission would not shift properly in the beginning the transmission would act out once you took it out of park it was noticeable but as the problem became worse it started happening driving down the highway I noticed once that I have successfully made it through 1-2-3 but never got out of 3. I should state that when the key was stuck I would have to manually shift through the first and second then put it into drive otherwise the car had no power because it would be stuck in the higher gear. Tried to contact the dealership as there was a recall on the dash for the 2003 model and they told us it wasnt a safety problem I do not understand how random loss of power and random car dying is not a safety issue, I have been watching the list of gm recalls and I have not seen much about the Trailblazers, and it bothers me that I am sure there are other issues like the ones that I had. On another note transmission related my neighbors just had to get rid of their Trailblazer 2006 for transmission problems. This transmission stuck in gear problem happened on Tuesday, May 15, 2012.

The vehicle involved is a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica. I purchased a 2005 chyrsler Pacifica in 2007 and it had 25,000 miles on it. When the vehicle had 39,000 miles on it I started having issues with the transmission. While driving, the check engine light came on and the car would get stuck in gear (stuck between 1st and 2nd gears). After I shut the car off and restarted it, I could drive it by using the tiptronic shifting system (manually shifting gears). The problem is a sensor on the transmission that costs over $2000 between parts and labor. At 72,000 miles I had to replace the catalytic converter and the front end compenents I. E control arms,tie rods,etc. After contacting Chrysler about the catalytic converter which has a gov't mandated warranty of 80,000 mile warranty, they did give me the money I spent on the catalytic converter part only). Well, the Chrysler now has 104,000 miles on it and it needs another catalytic converter and all the front end parts that were previosly repaired need to be replaced again! that is insane! I looked on the internet and chryskler knows this is a huge issue because their are companies selling this front end repair kit. But since I need the car I guess I have to eat these costs yet again. At 68,000 I replaced a hdmi headlight that costs over $160. 00 per bulb. Soon after I began to smell something burning, and the new head light burned out. I had to replace the bulb again at an additional $160. 00 and this little silver box that the light sits in for $80. 00. Now at 104,00 miles both parts need to be replaced again, and according to Chrysler dealer, this issue has nothing to do with electrical harness, it is not under warranty, and I have to eat this cost too. In my opionion the tickets are cheaper than the part. Many of the Chrysler dealers do not try to help diagnose problem and they remind me everything is out of warranty - great job!. This transmission stuck in gear problem happened on Tuesday, May 13, 2008.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2011 Ford F-150. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of this Ford F-150 is 1FTFW1ET7B_. Ecoboost engine. Loud clattering on cold start. Runs very rough, exhibits propensity to stall when idling, and very sluggish acceleration coupled with transmission issues. Example 1: coasting on the freeway with traffic around 40mph, shifted lanes, then made attempt to accelerate and pass another vehicle, but the vehicle did not downshift. Accelerator will be down to the floor, and truck will remain stuck in a low gear (like 6th) and go nowhere. . . Zero acceleration. . . After a few more tries, and a few seconds later, the transmission will slam into 2nd gear, shaking the entire truck. At this point, the turbos kick in and the truck takes off like a rocket. Creates 2 dangerous situations, a potential rear-end accident by the lane change without acceleration, and then the sudden, rapid, unpredictable acceleration of being randomly thrown into 2nd gear. Seen various other incidents like this in other scenarios and various gears. Accelerating out of a traffic circle, or out of a turn, is an easy way to see the problem. Truck has basically lost its ability to accelerate/downshift on demand. Example 2: stopped at a stop sign. When I then proceed into intersection. . . Acceleration is very slow, then all of a sudden turbos kick in resulting in rapid unpredictable acceleration. Often times, the wheels will spin, and if the road is dry, the truck will bounce up and down all over the road! accelerator will in the same position the entire time. I have rapidly accelerated towards cars that I didn't want to get that close to. I now have to stay even further away from cars to maintain a safe distance due to unpredictable acceleration. Frustrating, because the problem is frequent now, but inconsistent. I have 2 kids in booster seats, and now I have to be especially careful when I drive with them in this truck because I feel it's unsafe. This transmission stuck in gear problem happened on Jul. 15, 2013.

The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) is 1FAHP3F23C_. When we drove this brand new Ford Focus off the dealer lot we noticed a sudden jerk in the transmission. We did not know if this was a fluke or normal so we drove it about a thousand miles. The transmission began to jerk more, jump, stall, hesitate, and rev up needlessly and seem to get stuck in gear. We took it back to the dealer with our complaints and they reprogrammed the computer and told us to give it another thousand miles to improve. As of this date, we have had this car back to the shop 7 times with the same complaint. At about 36,000 miles they did put in a clutch kit which helped it for about eight thousand miles. Unfortunately, the problem has returned. It is and always has been a safety issue for us. We never know when it is going to hesitate getting out into traffic. . . And we have been close to an accident several times. This last trip to the shop, just fri the 19th, they tell us there is nothing they can do. . . Just live with it. I know we are not the only ones that have this problem, the technician told us that outright. We are sick of this car and we have exhausted all our resources. We want people to know this is not a safe car so that is our reason for this letter. This transmission stuck in gear issue occurred 12/27/12.

The vehicle involved was a 2007 Acura Mdx. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was 2HNYD28467_. Random nav reset followed by non-acceleration until rpms reach over 3000. This has happened multiple times since purchasing this vehicle in July 2012. Navigation/radio system resets. Soon followed by problem of non-acceleration. Following reset, stop at traffic light, stop sign, etc. Light turns green. Car feels as though it is stuck in 1st gear. Will not accelerate over 1000 rpms. Extremely slow movement thru intersection then car slams into gear and rpms top 3000. After rough shift car performance is mostly normal, sometimes hard shifting. Next red light repeat performance. If put into park and then back to drive transmission seems to "reset" and may or may not repeat above action. If car is turned off and left to sit for a short time it usually does not repeat but for how long is anyone's guess. Lately nav reset happens so often I lose count, I just wait for the car to shift into what feels like first gear. Dealership has not been able to recreate this issue. No computer codes show up in system. Multiple complaints to dealer but they claim to have no record and to have never heard of this problem. It was Aug. 2, 2012 when this transmission stuck in gear issue happened.

The vehicle was a 2003 Acura Tl. I was on my way to work driving my Acura 3. 2 Tl on the same route I always take to work and my vehicle seemed to functioning properly. I made my way to the freeway on ramp and was stopped at the light used to stagger traffic on the ramp to the freeway. When the light went green I stepped on the gas and the car was very sluggish, almost the feeling that it was going to stall. I got up to about 35 mph when I was needing to merge onto the freeway and the transmission went out completely. It was stuck in 5th gear and flashing on the display. There way no way for me to merge onto the freeway safely at 35 mph during rush hour when a solid block of cars are traveling 65 mph +. This caused a huge disruption to traffic and several vehicles panicked and cut me forcing me off the road. I was very lucky to have not been in a serious collision and almost caused several other collisions due to the faulty transmission. I have never felt safe traveling in my vehicle again and especially not comfortable with traveling on the freeway which is a very costly inconvenience. Compensation is necessary. This issue happened on Wednesday, February 1, 2012.

I have a 2003 Honda Accord ex-v6 that I purchased in 2006 with 13,000 miles. It now has ~70,000 miles. I have had all the Honda recommended maintenance performed. Today, while traveling about 50 mph, the transmission suddenly downshifted violently almost causing an accident. I pulled off the road and tried driving in d1, d2 and d3. The transmission seems to be stuck in first gear. I finished the drive home (about 1 mile) and found out there was no reverse gear. This seems to be a recurring and potentially dangerous problem from Honda. I can not believe this problem has not been recalled. It was Tuesday, May. 21, 2013 when this transmission stuck in gear issue happened.

The car was a 2005 Hyundai Accent. My brake lights malfunctioned causing them to stay depressed and lit up until I disconnected the battery. Now they won't even come back on. I was also having issues with the shifter and it was stuck in the park position. I found out through NHTSA that Hyundai recalled thousands of vehicles for these same problems back in 2009. They said any of these malfunctions could lead to a crash. I had one representative from Hyundai tell me that they don't honor NHTSA recalls. The dealers refuse to replace the stop lamp switch on my vehicle because they won't even acknowledge the recall. The recall that began on September 2, 2009, campaign 092, the article cited to contact this puerto rican phone number 1-787-999-4310 but I can't get through. The dealerships are not very helpful at this point and in fact the service manager at one dealership was extremely rude and stated that he would not work with corporate when corporate decided to back me with the recall. He told me that since my car was having those issues that it was a safety issue and that his recommendation was that the dealership honor that and fix my vehicle, but they refuse. I have no working brake lights and I need help in resolving this issue in a timely manner. Thank you. It was Fri., Jan. 18, 2013 when this transmission stuck in gear issue occurred.

Since the purchase of my new 2014 Jeep Cherokee the transmission has shifted rough when in stop and go traffic, getting stuck in the lower gear and then finally slamming into the next higher gear causing the car to jump forward - extremely dangerous when in close traffic! it only happens when in stop and go traffic up to 15-20 mph and it seems like it will not shift no matter how much I accelerate then it releases suddenly. On the highway in the higher gears it seems to slip only occasionally. The rear seat belts also have consistently "locked up" removing all slack until you have to pull over and stop the vehicle, turn it off, unbuckle the belt let it all the way back in and then reattach it. Yesterday 4/28/14 it did this again to my granddaughter, when we found a place to pull over it would not let us unbuckle the lap piece or give her any slack in the shoulder strap to get out of it, I was forced to pull into a recycling center and borrowed a knife from one of the workers to "cut" the belt in half so it would release her. Both rear seat belts do this on even roads with no sort of incline or bumps! I will be carrying a pocket knife from now on, what if we were in a accident or needed to exit the vehicle quickly??!! dealership said they would order new belts and have them installed, I have an appointment to take it in tomorrow for them to diagnose the transmission problem & seat belt problem. I will follow up with the remedy or lack thereof. The current mileage is now at 8700 miles. It was January 10, 2014 when this transmission stuck in gear issue occurred.

The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) is SALNY22252_. We own a 2002 Land Rover Freelander. It has been in the repair shop numerous times. While on a trip all of the warning lights on the dashboard lite up and the transmission became stuck in 4th gear. Because road side assistance could not direct us to an open dealership, we had to drive from buffalo NY to chicago IL. Once back in the city, the dealership took the car and replaced the computer, which took more than two weeks. On the way home, the same problem occurred. We brought the car back and the dealership has had the vehicle for the past 26 days to replace the transmission. We went in to try and trade it in for a discovery and they only offered 14,000. We have tried to get corporate to buy back the car at our pay off amount and they have refused. We are currently exploring our options under the ucc and the magnuson-moss act for breach of warranty. It was Oct. 3, 2003 when this transmission stuck in gear issue occurred.

The vehicle involved is a 2004 Lexus Rx330. Information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u. S. C. 552(b)(6)
I have my dream car, 2004 Lexus Rx330. I have had same trouble. I am afraid of the car. I have an old Ford RV, I drive instead of my beautiful Lexus. People ask why, I tell them I'm afraid of it. It lurches forward, and also jumps back and forth between gears @ 20mph. This is after 5 updates in the computer of the car. I have put 200k miles on my other 5 toyotas, and all went beautifully! then the demon car as I refer to it. I reported it repeatedly, and was told by everyone, including long beach Toyota headquarters, that it was working in the manner it was designed, it was learning how I drive. Horse pucky. I am a retiree of att. I had defensive driving every year to drive their CO. Vehicles. I know how to drive and am very experienced. I also know when there is a bad problem. I have 48k miles on my runaway car. It's only tried to really run away twice, but somehow I got it stopped, I stuck it in neutral, for some unknown reason. Back then no one heard of this "mess". I never complained to Toyota about my cars, because they were wonderful. Then, after saving for 10 yrs, bought my dream car. The killer. I hate it, I am beginning to hate Toyota. It's very disheartening to me, to have the car company I thought so very highly of, is trying to save their [xxx] , by giving America these defective cars. When our hwy patrol officer and his family, was killed, I cried. All these years of saying they will get caught, they will see. Who is they? Toyota, and when they heard about it in 04, hushed it up. I know, if a hwy patrolman can't stop a runaway car, how the [xxx] can the normal guy driving it? someone please listen, someone, please help fix this mess. Shame on you, Toyota! shame on you! dealers, headquarters, employees that lied all these years to us. Shame on you! man up, and tell the truth.

The vehicle involved is a 2001 Lexus Rx300. Actually, there was little or no warning. On Saturday, while driving, the car seemed to get stuck in neutral, and then lurch forward. This happened a couple of more times, and each time was somewhat more exaggerated, so much so, that I attempted to keep my foot on the accelerator, trying to circumvent a stall. By the third time, the car sounded as if I was dragging something underneath. I returned home safely, but when my husband went to check the car, it would not even shift into neutral! aaa came to tow the car and the rear wheels seemed to lock, so much so that the car was dragged onto the towing bed, leaving some rubber on the driveway. The dealership has reported to me that I need a brand new transmission on my 2001 Rx300 Lexus, with 125,000 miles, to the tune of $5000. This problem occurred on Apr. 4, 2009.

My husband and I were driving our 2003 Lincoln Aviator when it basically stopped going and wouldn't change gear or speed up. (this is the second time it's gotten stuck in gear, the 1st time was when it was parked and wouldn't move but the gear shift moved freely). We got it back home and realized again the transmission shift cable had come dislodged. Lincoln had a recall on 25 vehicle regarding this problem, when I called I was told my vehicle wasn't one of them and wasn't included in the recall even thought I'm having the exact same issue. I've complained about the one here one time before and nothing happened. This is crazy. I could've been in a serious accident behind this. This transmission stuck in gear issue occurred 11/02/13.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2012 Mazda Mazda3. I was driving a steady 55 mph on the freeway on a dry sunny day with my wife and kids. The roads were smooth and dry, and the gas tank was 1/2 full. The car was 3 months old with 2700 miles on it. The car suddenly lost power and started to decelerate. The engine was still running, but pressing the gas pedal had no effect on engine rpm or vehicle speed. I looked down and the stability control light was on (steady lit, not blinking). I thought that maybe the stability control was confused, so I tried hitting the stability control switch to turn it off. No luck, the light was still on and the car continued to slow. I then moved the shift lever over to manually select gears since I though maybe the tranny was stuck in 6th gear - no luck as the display didn't even show what gear it was in. There was no freeway exit in sight and I was not able to coast to the next exit. I finally pulled over the car at less than 30 mph dodging cars zooming by at 60 mph. I turned off the car and restarted. The stability control light was now finally off and I was able to drive off. This transmission stuck in gear issue occurred Sunday, April 22, 2012.

The vehicle involved is a 2012 Mazda Mazda3. Driving home last night (on the freeway) at approximately 9:45 pm I attempted to excelerate to make a lane change. I noticed the car wasn't moving any faster the only thing I heard was the engine gunning. The car was slowing down in very fast traffic and I immediately put my hazards on while trying to move the gear shift which was stuck. Its a miracle that I didn't get hit trying to get tnate to have it apoenhis vehicle over to the right shoulder which I eventually did. I removed a small cover beside the gear shift inserted a screwdriver in the hole and was able to release the shift. I put it in park, turned the car off for about a minute. Started the car and shifted it to drive but the car jerked back and the gear shift is stuck again. I had to be towed home. This was a very dangerous and frightening situation for a male adult and would hate to have this happen to a single mother with children in the car. This is not the only time the gears have locked. I was fortunate to have it happen in my driveway and was able to unlock with the method I described above. I feel this really should be looked into. This problem occurred on Tuesday, Jul. 3, 2012.

The vehicle is a 2006 Mercedes Benz C230. Crash was involved with the Mercedes Benz C230. I was making a right turn stop at a light, when I attempted to acclerate the car took off as it was at a higher gear. Would not pick speed and high rpm. There was a pedestrian riding his bike and made a right turn and because his view was block my the sun he ended up rear ending my car and feel off his bike. The reason I am filing this compliant is if my car was not having this issue the accident could have been prevented bc there was no car in front of me. Thank god the rider was not badly hurt and just had a few scrapes and my car was okay so we went our separate ways. There are so many compliant about ths same issues about the car not accelerating and gears getting stuck it is becoming ridiculous. I am sure there has been cases where people are severly injured or passed away bc of this issue but ones that didn't survived are not here to file their compliants. This is a serious matter and a recall needs to be done before bodies actually start piling up. Mercedes. Benz are known to be high end luxury cars and they need to actually drive like ones. . The manufacturer need to step up and acknowledge this important matter and do the recall. It was Wed., Apr. 10, 2013 when this transmission stuck in gear issue occurred.

The lever broke in such a way that the vehicle was stuck in gear with no means to put in park. The base of the lever that operates the gear change mechanism appears to be made of porous metal. I was forced to leave my vehicle in reverse, with the keys stuck in the ignition, until I was able to arrange a tow. Thankfully I was not in traffic, on a hill when this happened. I was able to place some items behind the wheels to prevent rolling (emergency brake does not work well). This appears to be a common problem as there are numerous documented complaints (enough that a parts manufacturer has come up with a more durable replacement part). The failure date was November 25, 2012.

The vehicle was a 2003 Mercury Sable. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is 1MEFM50263_. I pulled up to a stoplight. When it turned green, I depressed the accelerator and the vehicle's engine revved as though it were in neutral. When shifted into any forward gear or reverse gear, it would not move. It was as though it were stuck in neutral. The transmission specialist said it was a common problem, knew exactly what it was, and quipped that he was surprised mine had lasted this long. Upon researching online, it appears that this is an incredibly widespread problem. In fact, Ford knows it is a problem as it has recalled two of their minivans that contain the very same transmission. It is the same part failing. Why does it warrant a recall in one vehicle but not another??. The failure date was Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2012.

The car involved is a 2006 Mitsubishi Raider. Powertrain: automatic transmission
while driving on a speed of about 65-75 mph on the freeway/interstate and all of a sudden I have to slow down by stepping on the brake and then releasing the brake to continue moving again after the speed goes down to about 35-45 mph, the "check engine" light comes on and you can hear the engine revving like it is stuck on third gear instead of shifting to fourth gear. I have been to an authorized napa auto repair shop and the code they found out was a sensor problem. They changed the sensor and sure enough gone again but the "check" engine light came on again while I was climbing up on a slope that is stepping on the gas a little bit more to be able to climb the slope. Went back to the same napa auto repair shop and this time it is still the same problem. They asked me to drive it some more just in case the check engine light disappears again and it did. Now I am scared of driving it anymore unless I have to for fear of anything worse happens. I bought this truck in 2008 with about 35k on the odometer and bought it with "as is" conditions. I could not afford a newer and better truck so I am stuck with this one. I have now 48k miles on the odometer since July, 2008. The napa auto repair shop said that the next thing they could try is getting a used transmission or even a new transmission but would not be able to guarantee if it won't happen again. It was Tuesday, Aug. 18, 2009 when this transmission stuck in gear issue occurred.

The car involved was a 2010 Nissan Maxima. VIN of the vehicle was 1N4AA5AP0A_. Cvt Nissan 2010 Maxima problems & issues ----these are recorded problems with Nissan's new cvt transmission on Nissan Maxima 2010. The cvt exhibits lost of power, high rpm, loud whining noise, and cvt gets stuck in 6th gear (won't down shift) in manual and drive mode. The car will not accelerate at high speeds and gives a p1778 code (other codes as well). . This cvt transmission sucks. I took it to four dealerships. I was told nothing is wrong. The car was finally diagnosed with "check engine light on". The error code 1778 &. Four other codes were pulled in total. The overall diagnosis is "complete cvt transmission failure"I contacted Nissan consumer affairs. The code occurred at 44k, 65k, 85k miles, and 94k miles, and each time it was undiagnosable since the check engine light did not stay on. I was able to get this diagnosed with a check engine light on at 124,000 miles. At Nissan consumer affairs I spoke with megan, juanita and then callia from the executive branch (so she says - she was a telephone representative). All of these Nissan reps have no knowledge of Nissan engines or cvt's. Consumer affairs refused to to believe that the dealers refused to acknowledge the problem exists, even despite the TSB's, warranty extension, numerous customer complaints, and my numerous calls over the past two years to Nissan consumer affairs. All in all they did not even acknowledge the ongoing issues with the cvt. These Nissan dealers, Nissan service departments, and Nissan consumer affairs are crooks --- I would advise anyone to not buy Nissan cars. If you do have to buy a Nissan beware that they will try to rip you off at every diagnosis and decision point on their part. I am very sorry to say. I used to think Nissan was a good company. It was Tue., Feb. 1, 2011 when this transmission stuck in gear issue occurred.. Read more...

Vehicle: 2006 Saturn Vue manual transmission. Twice in the last 4 months the manual transmission has failed catastrophically while driving on the highway. In both instances the shifter separated from the transmission and the vehicle was stuck in gear. The second occurrence was on an I-95. The Saturn dealership replaced and end clip the first time and the shifter cable the second time. They are telling me that the occurrences are unrelated - different parts and balking at fixing the defect without me paying for it. I have found several internet sites in which people are complaining of this same failure over several model years in the Saturn Vue. I was lucky that I did not get in an accident with this failure - especially the second time on I-95. This problem occurred on 08/01/2010.

The contact filed a complaint with the manufacturer. The vehicle has not been repaired. The current and failure mileages were 56,000. Updated 12/07/07. This transmission stuck in gear problem happened on Tuesday, October 16, 2007.

The vehicle was a 2012 Subaru Outback. The 2012 Outback with an automatic transmission shifted from drive to 1st gear without moving the gear lever from drive to manual. This has occurred 10 times in 18 months, the first incident occurred about 2 months after purchasing this vehicle new. The problem has always occurred after coming to a stop at a stop sign, then, as I accelerate from the stop, the transmission goes into 1st gear and the car immediately stops accelerating because it is stuck in 1st gear. The gear lever is always in drive when this occurs, but the dash displays that the transmission is in 1st gear. To resolve it, I have moved the gear lever from drive to manual and then back to drive which puts the transmission back into drive. On one occasion, leaving a stop sign to enter a freeway ramp, the transmission went into 2nd gear. Again, the gear lever was in the drive position. I immediately applied the breaks and just before coming to a complete stop on the side of the freeway on-ramp, I witnessed the "2" on the dash display change to "d" and the car was in drive again - without touching the gear lever. Subaru first said that this was impossible, now they say they cannot verify it. This is a very intermittent problem and so far cannot be made to occur. This is also a potentially very dangerous problem should another driver not see that my car has suddenly stopped accelerating and collide with my vehicle. This transmission stuck in gear problem happened on 12/27/2011.

The car involved is a 2007 Subaru Forester. The vehicle hesitates and "bucks" at low speeds, turning corners, accelerating/decelerating, changing lanes, going up a grade or hill and does not shift smoothly. Shifting gears seems to take longer than expected and the tach registers high and then erratically jumps down (or up) to a much lower level on the tach, causing the vehicle to shift erratically or to seemingly get stuck in a gear. Also, the vehicle may try to shift while not accelerating, sometimes when travelling at a higher speed. The dealer where I purchased the vehicle and where I have had it exclusively serviced cannot seem to diagnose a problem. They have changed wires and replaced an air fuel sensor, only to say they cannot find a problem that might be related to the automatic transmission. I notified the dealer of this situation before my 3 year warranty expired, but even back then, they said they could find no problem. I have driven the vehicle continuously since the date I initially notified the dealer and have repeatedly informed them of this issue, but the condition has continued to get more severe over time. I truly feel unsafe in the vehicle and that at any point in time, while on a highway or regular road, that the vehicle could fail and this condition could cause an accident and/or result in a crash of some kind. I have now driven three Subaru loaners from the dealer and I find that each vehicle exhibits signs of the same situation I have experienced with my vehicle. I wonder if Subaru may not be telling its customers of this potential defect at the time of purchase or if Subaru just does not have the knowledge and/or skill in its manufacturing procedures (especially related to the transmission) to properly assemble its vehicles for the safety of all drivers. It was 05/28/2010 when this transmission stuck in gear issue happened.

The vehicle involved was a 2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara. The gear shifter failed to function and suddenly got stuck in the gear that it was in. Dealership replaced the part, but the problem recurred. Consumer noted this failure occurred in three vehicles, all of which were the same make, model and year. The dealership didn't take responsibility for the first failure even though the vehicle was under warranty. Since the consumer needed the vehicle, he paid for the repairs ranging from $296. To $380. The failure occurred twice on one vehicle. The vehicles can't move at all (second vehicles VIN - 2s3te52v126108580). It was Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2003 when this transmission stuck in gear issue happened.

2006 Suzuki Forenza wagon. I have searched the internet only to find that very many other people are having the same problems with the shifting of the automatic transmission just like we are. It is stuck in 2nd gear & very slow to accelerate, revs way to high when reaching posted speeds. Both are very dangerous. Why is this not a recall? we feel we are destroying the engine. We bought it last year,used & with no warranty. We feel we have been taken advantage of . The dealer will not help us(Dodge dealer). We called a Suzuki dealer and they told us this problem is very common but it is an electrical issue which is not under warranty and extremely expensive. What can we do? please help. This transmission stuck in gear problem happened on Jun. 10, 2009.

The car is a 2013 Toyota Camry. The VIN of this vehicle is 4T1BF1FK1D_. After making a turn onto a road, before entering a parking lot, my brake lights went on. It's a new car with only 3500 miles on it - the brakes should be fine. I turn into the parking lot, park the car, put it in park, and turn off the engine. I check the emergency brake, it was not engaged. I turn the car on and the brake light goes away. However, now I cannot take my car out of park. It is stuck in park. I step on the brake, I turn the wheel and the wheel turns fine. The gear is still stuck in park. I call the dealership, they send out a tow truck. I try my car one more time and it is still stuck in park. The driver of the tow truck tries, he puts his hand on the handle and behold, it shifts out of park and can go into r, n and d. Can you believe it?? I will continue to monitor this 'odd' occurrence. Hopefully, this will not happen again. It was Tuesday, October 15, 2013 when this transmission stuck in gear issue occurred.

The vehicle involved is a 2002 Toyota Rav4. Trans began to race, while car was moving slowly. Shifting became slow and loud. Acted like it was stuck in the low gears and was having difficulty shifting from 1 to 2 to 3, etc. The trans was laboring to make the necessary shift from the low to the higher gears have not driven car since that date except for analysis, etc. . To date, the various experts (joke) ( Toyota included ) say I need either the ecm, trans. , or both the current price for repair is $6,775. 00 + tax ( this was a special price that was quoted by a Toyota dealer ) I have dealt with the car dealer,Toyota(corp) sales managers, etc and, to a person, received their sympathy, but, no support whatsoever. How is it possible for this corp. To continue to refuse to correct an obvious fraud ( they new abt this problem since day one ) and continue to refuse to provide corrective steps? I bought this auto in Aug of 2011 with 47,00 miles on it. I drove it for 4,400 miles when the trans. Failed. Now, having learned about the prob. With this model, how is it possible that this auto was sold without any of the problems ever being disclosed at the time of the sale ? as a matter of fact, it was stated that "this car will last me a lifetime, given its low mileage and pristine condition " I have learned that Toyota issued a directive in 2001( ?) that extended the warranty to 10years or 150,000mls,, whichever comes first. I then found out that I was not entitled to any assistance as I was outside the 10 year period. How is it they can use this logic when they have acknowledged that a problem exists and one that will not go away or correct itself regardless of time or mileage? knowing the inherent problems with the auto, the manufacturer should be held accountable and correct all problems without any exclusions or fine print items. The failure date was Mar. 20, 2013.

The vehicle is a 2008 Volkswagen Jetta. While merging onto the freeway, as I reached 60mph the car lunged and the engine began revving over 6000rpm. It felt like the car was stuck in 3rd gear. The gear/drive mode display led began flashing constantly. The car would not shift up to a higher gear so I moved into slower lanes and kept the car at about 5000rpm/55mph until it was safe to stop. The car geared down as I decelerated but appeared to skip a gear and lunged at each shift. I tried switching between drive and sport mode but there was no change. When I finally was able to bring the car to a stop I discovered the reverse gear did not engage. It simply went into neutral. I shut the car down, waited a minute and started it again. It no longer had any visible problems or error messages. I later learned this is a known issue with the dsg transmission and is referred to as the 'dsg flash of death'. This transmission stuck in gear problem happened on January 6, 2014.

The car was a 2007 BMW X3. Transmission continues to hesitate @ low gears, especially at initial accelerations while stopped @ a stop sign or signal light. Automatic transmission hesitates,car jolts trying to find the right gear. The car then jumps into a higher gear and dangerously accelerates rapidly. In addition, when driving on a steep downhill decline, the car adjusts well; however, when transitioning to a level surface street after a steep downhill, the gear will not shift into the appropriate gear (I. E. , was stuck in previous gear). On 6/14/2010, took car to dealer. They "performed BMW diagnosis control unit function, there is no fault recored in control unit, and at test drive i9 could not duplicate customer complaint at this time. " no fix was provided. After years of minor jolts when accelerating (I believe in 1st and 2nd) & then a rapid kick acceleration to 3rd, no major incidents have occured but safety on road has been compromised. I have learned to ease into accelerations with this car and do not allow anyone to drive this car because of unexepected hesitations/accel. On 1/14/2012, I had a close call entering an intersection after I was stopped at a light. As I proceeded into the intersection to turn left, the car hesitated & stalled in middle of intersection, then jerked forward and yellow transmission light came on. I parked on the side of the road, put it in "p" & turned engine off. Turned it back on and tranny light remained on and car would not accelerate in "d"; however, it would allow me to "reverse. " it took three attempts (on/off engine) and the car went into "d" with hesitation. I attempted to drive home and car stalled at the next light. Was stuck in middle of road for 2 minutes trying to get it in gear. "d" finally worked. I parked in a lot, turned engine off for 15 minutes. Car has been working ok rest of day but it is not safe! this is seriously dangerous!!!!!. It was Sat., Jun. 12, 2010 when this transmission stuck in gear issue occurred.

Automatic transmission on the 2010 Cadillac Srx performance trim sticks in low gear when trying to accelerate, leading to inability to safely merge onto the freeway or expressway. Once stuck, the only way to 'unstick' is to bring the car to a complete stop (0 mph), when the transmission shifts down and seems to 'reset' itself. Merging onto oncoming traffic at higher speeds is consequently made unsafe due to the fact that the car cannot speed up reasonably and is restricted in terms of the maximum speed it can achieve on the 'stuck gear'. Issue seems to replicate consistently and has been seen mostly during the first few minutes of driving the vehicle after it cools down. The automatic transmission that usually shifts b/w 2000 - 2500 rpm goes as high as 6000 rpm without budging from the 'stuck' gear. This transmission stuck in gear issue occurred Tuesday, July 27, 2010.

The vehicle involved was a 2009 Jaguar Xf. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was SAJWA06B29_. The transmission sticks in drive. Jaguar service action k048 was performed after about the fourth time it stuck in gear. After dealer had car for several days only 2 hours after picking it up it was dragged with the wheels locked up back on the tow truck with the transmission stuck in drive. The car has been at the dealer now for 15 days and all we are being told is that the transmission control switch (tcs) is broken and there are no replacements available. We were not even given any estimate of when the car will be repaired or if it can be repaired. This is a very serious safety defect with this transmission I have read enough blogs to know that all Xf's have this transmission defect and this should be a major recall item. I'm going to ask Jaguar to purchase the car back. This transmission stuck in gear problem happened on Jun. 15, 2010.
