as fstop said, just a defective transmission... it's all computerized anyways, highly unlikely someone could kill the tranny in 1300 miles... i'm in the break in period myself, and i take it up to 5200rpm (my mechanic buddy from bmw told me it was fine, just not to go WOT) time to time...

he told me the important thing was to fluctuate the rpm's, don't keep it at the same pace... accelerate a little harder sometimes, then go softer others...

look on the bright side, if it happens 2 more times, you can lemon the sucker out, get all your money back...
