No, I am not here for bashing people for getting great mileage. I bought this car for its good mileage too. I only say that if you are so concerned about your tranny, treat it as it should and as stated in the Owner's manual for the first 1000 miles.
Which is the following:
Your vehicle does not need an extensive break-in. Try not to drive
continuously at the same speed for the first 1,000 miles (1,600 km) of
new vehicle operation. Vary your speed frequently in order to give the
moving parts a chance to break in
And forget about the mpg during this time and you'll never have shuddering, especially after getting the last TSB on your car.

kam327 - I stand corrected. And I appologize for everything I said about heat and all (to all). What I was bashing was the fact that everyone of you was out here talking about a "design flaw". Which, as proved by yourself, it is not true. It is something normal in certain conditions. So case closed for me.
