problem #2

S80 6-cyl

  • 79,000 miles
Car surges and hesitates when changing gears, it slows down and accelerates randomly when I push down on the gas. It sticks and won't let me change gears in manual mode and it struggles to change gears in automatic mode. This problem is dangerous, it will decelerate randomly when driving on the highway both with the cruise on and off.
