Trans.. issues has started

My nightingale has currently 3500 miles and yesterday she started to grind.
Not a lot, but I heard some weird noises when she shifted.

I'm not upset... but is there a solution to this? Does this mean that the automatic trans is leaking?

I would like to point out that I never babied the trans. I always give it gas like a manual trans...

Hi: SMARTINEAU... We just had the N/C clutch/seals package replaced on our 2012 SEL HB. Select shift at 18,000 kms.
Service advisor told me wait time for parts is up to 22 weeks... so get it looked at pronto.

Hi SMARTINEAU,

Let me give you a hand with this issue. Have you been to a dealer to get it diagnosed? Please send me a PM with your VIN, name, phone number, servicing dealer, and odometer reading.

The solution is to get rid of it as fast as you can! Haha go get it fixed three times and have it still happen the fourth so you can get them to pay for the Lemon
