Mine I don't think matters what temperature it's at. It does funky things at different temperatures at speeds. (like I've noticed in the cold, when inching forward, there is sort of a knocking sound from the trans, but this doesn't always happen. but it happens more often than not...) And the car seems to shutter/vibrate/shake a bit when it does this--like it's about to stall or something.
All I said to my dealer was that the car was shifting weird in the lower gears, like shifting too fast. It was cold out and we got the new update 12-1-4. It definitely shifts different in the 1-3 gears. Holds them longer.
