What other cars besides BMW, both here and in Europe, are using this auto? Is this the same one in the FWD Cadillacs? Is this the same one in M3 Autos?
: This might have been a freak incident, but I was just wondering if anyone has experienced sudden loss of power?
: I was driving down to NJ last night to pickup some relatives at the airport, when I got to NY, I stopped at a red light, then when the light turned green, I stepped on the gas, the rpms went sky higy (over 5k) the car didn't start as usuall, instead it inched very slowly forward.
: I double checked and it was indeed in gear (S 4, automatic)
: tried switching to D,4,3,2 but still the same thing.
: after crawling at about 3 mph for about 5 mins, then things
: went back to normal.
: no warning light came on and the drive back to MA afterwards was fine.
: Any reason I should be concerned? Any idea what happened?
