Thanks
It's computer controlled, and the same tranny as the GT, you don't have much to worry about as far as teh transmission goes.

The important thing is to NOT try to shift the transmission manually, this can trap fluid in the bands and destroy the transmission in short order.

Just leave it in drive, and let the computer do the shifting.


Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
