I have a 2000 Grand Vitara automatic with 91k miles on it. I am experiencing an issue with the vehicle being unable to **** into low gear. I have to manually shift it to first when starting out on a hill, pulling out at an intersection, or any time first gear is needed. I took it to a dealer and they initially said it was something called a "drop cable"? They said it was broken and had to be replaced.
I had it replaced but it did not fix the problem. They are now telling me that I need to replace the transmission! But when shifting manually it works fine once the vehicle is up to speed. So if I can shift manually isn’t the transmission Ok?
At one point I went through an automatic car wash and it started working just fine for a day or two then all of a sudden it stopped working and I had to go back to manual shifting. The mechanics I have taken it to are puzzled and so am I. Any Help? Please?
have the same problem?
