Also, I noticed my MPG/trip reset along with my Sirius set to preview channel. This makes me think they reflashed it or disconnected the battery. Still driving lousy though if they did. I can't wait until next week to see if they really fix this.
Same thing here - was told there was a seal on the transmission that has gone bad, and the seal + the whole clutch assembly is going to get replaced. The tech said that he has done about 6 of these in the past 2 months, and has also had to replace an entire transmission on a couple.

I'll post back after the work gets done next week and let everyone know what the result is.
