Seems to depend on whether or not the driveline is "tight". IE, if I back up, shift to N, then to first, it'* a pretty rough ride. However, if I've been going forward, stop, shift to N then back, it'* fine? Maybe the chain is getting loose?

Well got the GXP back from the dealership after a 1534.00 Bill. Dont worry the extended warranty picked that up! Things that were fixed or replaced, the amp 340$ plus labor, the forward wiring harness for the fog light $299 plus labor, motor mount for the shifting problem(that really got me) it was like $450 for the labor and $100 for the mount. Anyways drives good sounds good and I got my chimes back. $2000.00 warrenty purchased to last me until 100k and 2012. I think it was money worth spending so far. I am already close to 2k on repairs and I only had the warrenty for a couple of months

I am almost at 37K. I should look into getting this from what all of you are saying. If not I may be in for some big expenses!

I had to have both housings replace before it would stop blowing bulbs. They replaced drivers + harness and it still kept blowing until I insisted they go back and change the passengers side housing. Not sure if this was just my car or not, but it helped stop my problem.
