Buick LeSabre Problem
Average Mileage: 106,288 mi (40,000 mi - 169,545 mi)
The transmission pressure control solenoid may fail causing erratic shifting. Our technicians tell us that partial dis-assembly of the transmission is necessary to replace a failed pressure control solenoid.

Hard shift once the car reaches normal temperature.
It started around 125000 miles. It only happens when it is cold (usually below freezing). When I shift into reverse to back out of the garage the first time in the morning it really goes into gear with a wham. After that it usually doesn't do it again until next morning. I don't know if it is doing any harm or not. It hasn't been fixed.
