Oh god, i'm so sad that this could be a long lasting issue for me as well, i just want to cry I'll let you all know how it turns out for me in a couple of weeks after my dealership appointment, i'm hoping they will be nicer to me up here in Canada.

P.S. And I will not accept what seems to be the common excuse of the car needing to be "broken in" What a bunch of BS!
Yes, I did fail to note that it rolls back on a hil jsut like a manual. If you hit the brake and stop it again, it might hold, but initally when you stop it does roll back on the hill. I cannot believe that I have finally hav some back up in thse threads that others are having these same issues. What a mess. Again, I really do like the car once it is on the open road, but this shifting issue really is frustrating.
