Yes, pretty much exactly as you describe. Didn't count it as a transmission "failure", as I'm pretty sure its just a linkage adjustment question. Was that way off the showroom floor.If mine is cold the gear selector will not shift in all the way into drive. It goes in gear, but is short of the detent/lock gate. If I drive forward slowly and let off it slips in. Only happens if she is cold and only on first shift into gear, not second time, it goes away on the first. Since I figured it out I just warm it up for 5mins and no problems going into gear ever.
Anyone else with this quirk?
How long since you got it? The one I posted was one I ALMOST bought that was for sale in Amherst at the Product Finder about a year ago. I talked to the buddy who owned it and he told me not to buy it. He lost his license and used it for a car. It had jumped the timing destroying the motor which was one the the major problems it had, not to mention a half dozen other things he mentioned. I'm kind of thinking someone in NB bought it and traded it in again. Its possible, this one was a major lemon.The Power Store, bombardier dealer in Saint John, New Brunswick. No warranty, but like I said in worked right when I brought it home. They said to let them know if anything went wrong. I did, they shut me down told me I caused it. Somebody told me that there was a seal in the tranny that goes bad on them and that was causing my troubles.
Maybe its just me... but why do I doubt your story?I owned a Rincon for less than a week, took it out the first time and the turbine inside the torque converter shattered and took out the trans. After that I traded it in and got my Rubicon.
