POWER TRAIN

4/26/2015 - INVERNESS , FL
IF YOU TAKE OFF SLOWLY FROM A STOP, THE TRANSMISSION, WHILE SWITCHING BETWEEN 2ND AND 3RD GEAR, WILL PROPEL THE CAR FORWARD ABRUPTLY CREATING A LOUD METALLIC SOUND LIKE GEARS SLAMMING INTO EACH OTHER (IMMEDIATELY ILLUMINATING THE TRANSMISSION FAULT). THE TRANSMISSION WILL STAY IN EITHER GEAR UNTIL YOU STOP THE CAR AND TURN IT OFF. AS LONG AS YOU SPEED THROUGH THE GEARS, THIS WILL NEVER OCCUR. SAD TO THINK YOU HAVE DRIVE IRRESPONSIBLE TO PREVENT TRANSMISSION DAMAGE. I TOOK THE VEHICLE TO A BMW TECHNICIAN WHO DIAGNOSED IT AS BEING A BAD TRANSMISSION, DRIVE SHAFT AND GUIBO JOINT. AFTER 2-YEARS OF LEARNING TO POWER THROUGH THE GEARS, MY BAD TRANSMISSION WORKS FINE, DRIVE SHAFT AND GUIBO JOINT ARE UNAFFECTED AND CHALK UP ANOTHER DEFECTIVE GUIBO JOINT BLAMED FOR UNNECESSARY REPAIRS. THIS NEEDS TO BE RECALLED AS THIS WILL DISABLE A CAR DURING TAKE OFF CAUSING MULTIPLE SAFETY ISSUES IN CONGESTED TRAFFIC.
