5000 mi   transmission would seem to be in neutral at a stop and then slam into first gear.Sensor was replaced in trans. This is a known problem--the dealer even has the part in stock. Fix seems to correct problem.

263-horsepower 3.5L V6 6-speed shiftable automatic FWD

2000 mi   Transmission shifting poorly..was told at 1,450 miles I needed to let the transmission "learn" my driving habits more. They reset software to "ground zero" and I am starting from scratch and will see what happens. Wish me luck. 
4000   Transmission "slipped" or hard shifted when going from first to second gear at very slow speeds...dealer reflashed transmission and problem seemingly gone (I hope). 
5000   Transmission reflash to correct low-speed slip shift 
10000   Engine light staying on; Diagnosed bad sensor; Sensor ordered. 
11000   Engine light on; part (sensor) ordered in Nov & replaced in Dec. 
12000   Same problem with engine light coming on; called dealer and the same sensor replaced as in Dec. 
8000   Car stalled and bucked after everytime the gas tank was filled. They replaced the gas tank, hoses and vapor valves. After two more fill ups every thing seems to be fixed.
