I really need your help here,

My shift lever seems to be loose and hard to control, the problem I don't know how the new one feels like to judge if there is a problem or not.

It is ok in P, but when I shift to D, it seems to sway back and forth between N and just below the D position.

When I shift back to 4, and then push it back towards D, it locks on near D, but cannot go back to 4 until I press the button again, then it moves back to 4.

Is this normal? does anyone else feels the shift lever is loose and hard to control?

Mine is nothing like that. Something is wrong.

thank you chazglenn3,

I took the car this morning back to the dealer, the senior technician took a look at it, and lift up the car, there was some adjustment not done well after they have installed the linkage, I guess.

It is ok now.

P > R, press button
R>N>D
D>4, press button
4>D>N
N>R, press button
R>P, press button
