Man, that stinks, but on the bright side you have a diagnosis and a treatment plan. That's huge
! I'm surprised and impressed--you must have a competent dealer and service staff looking at the car.
Again, I'm sorry that it's going to take time to fix, but at least you haven't been left with the frustration ("can't reproduce/there is no problem") so many have been left with. I hope they can "find" a transmission soon-- it's Jersey, you never know, one might fall off truck....
