Transmission stuck in first gear, three attempts to remedy by owner, finally on fourth attempt.(placing in park and turning off an on ignition) transmission finally woked normally. Contacted manufacturer through roadside assistance told to return vehicle to dealer, contacted dealer, was told that they have seen this problem on this model several times. Thought I should advise someone at nhsta.
