Clunker or easy fix? CVT won't engage unless in neutral coming to stop
I own a '13 Cooper 6spd and it's awesome.
A family friend offered to give me, for free, their '03 with the automatic transmission, 60k miles on odo. He says the car drives fine but if you come to a stoplight in drive, the car won't move again. If you come to a stop in neutral, and then shift to drive, it will go.
Is this something worth picking up? Or should I skip the headache?
Also I'm not sure if it's a CVT actually. May just be a regular auto...
