Mohave 2009 transmission stuck in 3rd gear

Dear All,

It happens randomly that when I start the engine and move the selector to Drive, the engine is jerking hard, and the same thing is happening when i select Reverse. And when i drive the car on the D, the motion is very heavy because the transmission is not shifting at all and look like it is stuck in the 3rd gear. From why I understand, the 3rd gear is a fail mode for the transmission.
Usually, I just turn off the car and start it again. This usually fixes the problem and the car is shifting correctly again. Again after few weeks the same problem is taking place and so on. Has anyone experienced this same issue with his Mohave?
Appreciate your advice.
Hugo

I have a Borrego V8. I had the same thing happening 3+ years ago. There was TSB-035 that fixed my problem. It only affected the V8, so if you have the V6, then I don't know.

Thanks for your reply. Yes I do have the V6 but I will ask the dealer next time if something similar on the V6 can fix the issue. I will let you know if any progress.

Thanks Again!
