I think slightly slower shifting in cold has been true with every automatic I have had.

Just needs to warm up a bit.

When its really cold I take it easy, feeling (right or wrong) like I need to ease my car into it, like easing my body into running in the cold. I don't even turn the speakers on until its warm inside because (again, right or wrong) I think the cones are more brittle in the cold, too.
