Car experienced a hard shift on first shift from 2nd to 3rd (automatic) after starting. Transmission replaced. Later notice similar problem with new transmission, but only if drive with very light foot. Programming issue?
Had problem with car slipping in 6th gear. Had it to dealer a couple of times but car never failed while there. Their explaination was that I do not know how to drive a 6 speed. At 5685 miles car finally lost 6th gear.
