The transmission in my 1998 XC has been shifting roughly on the highway - it's usually when it upshifts. If you accelerate and make it downshift on the highway, then release, it makes the car "lurch" noticeably while going back into 4th. <p>I've taken this thing to the mechanic a few times, and each time they replace something that doesn't help the problem. They replaced 3 motor mounts, which admittedley did make the car smoother. Then, they replaced the front CV joint for the AWD system - both times did nothing to help the transmission.<p>The mechanic told me that the transmission fluid is fine and doesn't need to be flushed. I thought that was kind of strange considering the car is 7 years old...It has about 50k miles, btw - any insight would be much appreciated! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Flush your transmission fluid. No one on these boards believes in NOT flushing it.

<B>Flush the fluid ASAP</B> and make sure that the proper fluid level is in the wagon.<br>If that doesn't help, you're in for a transmission
