Transmission problem: Delayed shifting from gear to gear, and incidents of the transmission slipping out of park and into gear, problems also in the transmission's delay in shifting into reverse and out of reverse. Loud thunk when shifting from neutral to reverse. Struggling to reach 50 miles an hour with a whinning sound from the transmission when shifting gears.
