Scary! Please keep us updated with this situation!It appears as if the transmission gremlin that I experienced during the first week is still there. It again happened twice over the last week that it got stuck into fourth gear after stopping at an intersection. The last time it happened I also felt the bang that I felt that very first time but not as severe since I was doing only about 30 kpu in the process of slowing down to the intersection. How I then noticed something was wrong is that car slips it's torque converter to get away from the intersection. When putting it in manual mode it shows 4 on the display and I can change up or down and although the display will increment or decrement the transmission would not change gears. Putting it into Park after stopping does not help either. The only way I could get it to function normally again was to shut the engine down and restart. I am aware of one other forumite that experienced the same thing. Since the car still goes and would easy cruise at 80kmu in fourth I wonder how many times this would go unnoticed by less observant drivers. I am getting a feeling that this is some kind of limping home mode. This is on top of my list when the car goes in for its first service.
