this car is not driven that often, it only has 85000 miles, only 12000 miles within the last three years. this morning,after starting the vehicle and backing it out of the garage,it was put in drive,and given some gas ,but it was very hard pulling foward. I let the car set for approx.1 hour,and drove it with no problem. the car shifted just fine,just like it always has. what caused it to pull hard?

Poor quality low speed transmission shifting may be noted. Our technicians tell us updated transmission software is available which may correct this concern.
