on my way home from work, i was coming up to a stop light like usually downshifting into 3rd around 25-30mph then second gear around 15-20mph
slowing down to a complete stop. light turned green and gradually took off shifting into second around 12mph cruised on up to about 30 and went for third gear and i got nothing. felt like it went in like usual but nothing there went back to second gear and tried agian and same thing...i pulled over and sat there to try and engage 3rd gear. slowly let off the clutch, so i tried 4th gear and same about 20 minutes from home, mostly freeway. so i have to shift from 2nd to 5th to get home. note:1st, 2nd, 5th, reverse all work fine. what happend to 3rd nd 4th

Some may consider me totally in left field with this input, but nonetheless, to me it's serious. Sure, it feels nifty to decelerate though your transmission (kind of a race driver flavor :)), but it's a **** of a lot easier on your mechanicals to just apply your brakes. Plus, replacing your brake pads is a **** of a lot cheaper than having your transaxle rebuilt. Yes, by all means enjoy your xB2, but also, be nice to your xB2 -- in the process you'll be nice to your wallet as well :p! In any case, god luck with it dude :)!
