Q: Car jumps when switching gears

asked by on

The SUV jumps when switching gears.

The issue you are getting is not a common problem and the vehicle would have to be checked to see whether the problem is a broken motor or transmission mount, or if the transmission is shifting erratically. You do not mention any Check Engine Lights or other issues that may indicate a problem with the transmission. I recommend having a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, check your vehicle’s transmission to determine the source of the problem.
