problem #2

When starting out slow, lise at a stop light, if it is necessary to lift off the accelerator briefly, the transmission seems to go into a high gear and the car just coasts with no power. By presing the accelerator hard, a jackrabbit start results when the transmission does finally shift down. This can be very scary. I have talked to other owners and this is a common problem.
