Sometimes 2nd feels a little stiff but nothing compared to 4th. Im not too worried about 2nd as it has never not gone into 2nd unlike 4th.

To be clear, when I took it to the dealer last time, they "Tightened up the shift linkage and re-flashed the ECU" They said that they could not replicate the problem but assumed that might be the issue.

Like I said before, its not an everyday occurrence. It will happen cold, hot, slowly shifting, quickly shifting, ect. I pinpointed the speed that I could consistently replicate it and hopefully They will be able to feel it.

I have an appointment on Thursday for a ride along with the mechanic so we will see what happens.
