    This is my 1st posting as a brand new member. My transmission has a tendency to slip briefly whenever I accelerate after slowing down eg. going around a corner. It happens too if I had stopped and had it in neutral...when I select D it sometimes will take a second or two to engage. A mechanic told me it's a factory fault. Does anybody else have this trouble? Can it be fixed?

    Welcome to TW! Sounds like the tranny is a little low on fluid. Have the dealer adjust it, as you should still be under warranty.
