Transmission shift 1st to 2nd gear is hard, all other shifts are fine. Sometimes the transmission "chokes" and you get a hard bang in the drivetrain. Also, the driver's seat doesn't lock properly, sometimes I have to slam on the brakes really hard in order to get the seat front-to-rear adjuster to lock or "click" into place. The seat also squeaks while the car is in motion, and I weigh only 175 lbs. Car has about 3000 miles today, and the sales dealer will not schedule me for an appointment on my only day off from work (Saturday) so I guess I will have to take a personal day off during the week because apparently an oil change is more important.

Immediately after purchase we noticed a transmittion problem where there was a fluxuation of RPM while driving at 40 - 65 mph. The computer is telling the transmittion to shift for some unknown reason. It can not find a cruse gear to remain at speed.
