1. From time it was new vehicle, trans sort of "hunts" a little between 1st and 2nd gear under moderately heavy throttle---doesn't do that under light or full throttle, tho. (Annoying but not killer problem.)
2. For about past 6 months, trans takes a few seconds to start moving (at idle speed) in reverse after cold start (it basically is never freezing in my garage, btw).
3. Over about the past 3 months, in 3 instances, vehicle seemed to slip out of gear as I let off throttle, pulled into a driveway, and lightly re-applied throttle. The first time this happened, the trans went back into gear on its own after a few seconds. The other two times, it wouldn't go back into gear "on its own". I shifted into neutral, then back into "Drive" before it took hold. (Yeah, disturbing, but I'm not trans expert and I don't know anyone who is.)
Any diagnoses from you TTer experts, and any referrals to good transmission guys/shops in LA/Pasadena, California area?
