Yeah, I definitely wouldn't say I was "beating" on the car by any means. Just 2 or 3 runs with the button shifting between 60-80mph when traffic was clear. It probably didnt help I was crawling through some bad rush hour traffic not too long before I did this. Mine actually shifts great thus far (no noises/chattering) with the exception of this smoking and clutch smell. I should probably be more worried than I am at the moment but as noted by cbdallas, the dealership probably wont do anything unless they can recreate the problem. I will report back if I experience anything weird.
