I use to have the problem where after the car got hot, the vehicle use to shudder from 1st gear to 2nd gear. Finally after 4 months of taking the car back over and over, they changed the pressure control solenoid and transmisson fluiid all under warranty and the car no longer has that problem

Would you describe this as a hesitation from 1st to 2nd or a shudder in that the whole car shakes?

it felt more like the car was pulling back before making the change from 1st to 2nd

Mine felt like you were going over a series of miniature speed bumps when you started off and on the 1-2 shift. Also reverse was very slow to engage, like 5-8 seconds before car would start to move.

Unfortunantly for the dealer, they refused to fix it the 1st 3 times I brought the car in, the last time I brought it in the tranny was smoked and they had to replace the fluid, shift solenoid, some spring and most of the bands for the gears!!!
