Hi all, my girlfriends FJ has been in for warranty work two time for shifting problems. The problem starts out as a slight hesitation before shifting in to the next gear (usually 3rd) under light acceleration. It progresses to hard shifts at or near 6k RPMs. Both times they replace a bad solenoid on the tranny. They said they were not the same solenoid. The last time it was in the shop was just 2 weeks ago. Yesterday it stated doing it again.

Has anyone heard of this issue before?

That's a new one for me.

Colorado requires 4 times within the warranty period or one year from delivery of the vehicle, which ever is earlier. She has had it just over a year already. I'm not sure if that one year limit applies if it was brought in for service the first time before that.
