Question about 2006 Saturn Vue
When I bought my 2006 Vue manual transmission a couple of years ago, shifting was very smooth. 3 weeks ago, the shift completely stopped workiing: My Vue was stuck in 1st gear, and the shift was loose and literally flopping around. The dealership changed a cable, but the shifting is still hard. My Vue is 2 years old, and I have less than 25K milles on it. This should not be happening. I brought it back to the dealership. They said they changed something else. I went to test it, and the problem's still there. I asked the service manager to drive it, and he agrees that the shifting is wrong. He called me a couple of days ago and said they're going to synchronize the gears. Does this make sense? Shouldn't this have been done the 1st time?
I've been without my car for 3 weeks. I'm in a rental that's covered by the warranty, and I had to get Saturn corporate involved to make the dealership give me a rental.
Does anybody have any suggestions - please? Thanks.
Synchronize the gears is what a trans does when you shift it, the part that makes this possiable is a part called a sycronizer ring, if they (4 of them) wear out prematurely then you end up with a hard shift issue, does this answer your question? I do assume your clutch is ok?
