Transmission issue.

Recommended Posts

I have just got back from a 500 mile round trip to Norfolk, Lincolnshire  from Wiltshire in my 2005 GS300 mk3 and i have noticed an issue with the transmission, When the car changes down a gear for instance when going down a hill or just cruising there is a noticeable jolt and a thud from the rear of the car somewhere? I thought i had seen people with similar issues somewhere but cant remember where. The transmission and diff fluid has never been changed to my knowledge and the car is nearly 13 years old but only done 70k.

Check the condition or the propshaft joints possibly the most likely cause.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?

      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
