Driving down the freeway getting off and slowed down for the red light and them WHAM! car like puts on the brakes itself really hard, nose into the ground then starts to roll forward again freely kinda, i gave it gas and it rolled forward but felt really hesitant and then again it like stopped really hard, pulled over and had no reverse, all gears felt like they wanna nudge forward, any idea where to get one for reasonable, rebuilt, 2nd hand, thoughts? Mos Def doing a level 10 upgrade on my next. It is an automatic.[wrench]

just for clarity, mention that it is in fact an automatic transmission.

yeah mine started to give out like that before.

it never locked up.

maybe you locked the transfer case, I know DSMs have that problem.

my car has been doing that lately too. one time it was like someone hit me from behind. still is working so far. my car is only a 2001 with 55,000 miles on it :( ... hopefully the cpo warranty will cover it if it does go out.
