Broken Shift Linkage on 05
Am I the first to break a shift linkage on an 05. It happened today about 30 miles from home, stopped at an intersection, took off, went for second, no shift. Because I read about it hear, I new what to do. Pulled over, removed the cover, put the tranny in 3rd & hammered down for home. Threads broke off in the metal bracket between the 2 linkages.
