This sounds like you need to talk with your sales person. I think the dealership wants you happy. There could be a quirk that they need to work out with that vehicle. If they cant fix it in 3 to 4 tries the lemon law kicks in anyway. New vehicle or they buy it back.

 

I do think it will take a calm sencere conversation to get results. I believe there wil be issues with that tranny the cars whole life. I think you feel the same.
