Hi all -

I have an automatic 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T and I have noticed a problem with a hard shift from 1st to 2nd gear (sounds as if I have to car in neutral and I am hitting the gas and then will hard shift to 2nd). This normally only happens during the very first time shifting after the car has been turned on (like I'm pulling out of the garage after the car has been off all night). Any ideas what could be the problem??

I took it to the dealer hoping it would be a problem under powertrain warranty, but they told me that my VIN # had transmission software updates (specific to shifting) and they supposedly installed those. The issue is still happening.

Any thoughts? Thanks so much!

Hello stevierowe,

Are you planning on bringing the vehicle back into the dealership? Please send me a direct message if we can be of any assistance with this.
