Respectively, your transmission should not be expected to perform perfectly, when it just gets out of bed. just my .02 for what ever its worth.
I agree with you. I can understand having problems with the trans when it got down below the 40s I could let it pass. But i've been having problems with mine in the low 60s and i'm just driving slowly in town.
