That sounds a lot like what my Outlook was doing before it gave up and shut down. It wouldn't shift out of second even after I shut it down and started back up. I turned around and planned on going back to the dealer before it just died in the road. I'd do the 30 day return policy if the dealer (or surrounding delaers) had something I liked. Either it's barebones 2WD models or ones that are totally loaded with Nav and Sunroofs. Thanks for the advice, I'll post back here when I figure out what I'm gonna do.
