Curious about this. Does it stay in 3rd or suddenly "slam" into 1st when you try to accelerate? I ask because my wife has had an issue that I can't duplicate. She pulls out of the driveway and immediately into a stop sign. She says she stops completely but, knowing my wife - and the one or two tickets she has received for doing such -, I'm assuming she "jackrabbits" the sign, not coming to a full stop. Regardless, she says the TH "jerks" as if slamming into gear before accelerating normally. After reading the above, a sudden 3-to-1 shift could be the culprit. Just assumption on my part but, if the transmission is staying in 3rd gear and she is compensating for the lack of acceleration by applying more skinny pedal causing the transmission to suddenly shift to 1st, this could be the issue. Our's is a 4/14 build with a new transmission installed at 56 miles (pushing 8,000 miles, now) and up until these two complaints, been flawless. Both times, as she describes, it has been a colder morning and the transmission had not warmed up.
