Auto Trans problem...and the CD player too

1955 4
My 05 GT is less than 2 months old. Three times so far I have moved the shifter out of park to either reverse or drive and had no response. The car just sits and continues to idle but the transmission does not engage. Each time this has happened, I have moved the shifter back to park and tried again...which fixed the problem after one or two tries.
Anyone else had this happen?

Also I had the very common problem with the CD player in the Shaker 500 system. When I called the dealer's service department, they first told me it was limited to burned CDs and not to play burned CDs - but I had to be firm, I let them know I already knew about this problem, that the system is supposed to play MP3s and they better fix it. Once I called their bluff, I was suddenly assured they can replace the unit in one day. The car is there now - why they need 9 hours to replace the unit is beyond me but as long as it plays properly tonight I won't complain about the time.
Dont let those service departments feed you the line of crap about burned CDs!

Dude, I had my Shaker 1000 replaced FOUR times before we finally got one that seems to work ok. It should take 1 to 2 hours for them to replace. You'll be getting a remanufactured one, not a new one. There are probably so many ppl wanting to replace theirs that, by this time, there's a waiting list. The Shaker blows - but sounds damn good when it's working!

So far in the last 6 weeks i've been told:
1. The new Shaker 500 could be obtained in 1 day.
2. The new Shaker 500 will be here in one week.
3. The new Shaker 500 will be in tomorrow.
4. The new Shaker 500 should be here next week.

and last (but certainly not least) ...
5. All Shaker 500 and 1000 are back-ordered with no estimated date of delivery. :sosad:

Has anyone else heard about this newest problem with the Shakers?
