"Suspension is extremely stiff. When I test drove the vehicle I was told that it hasn’t been prepped yet and it would soften up"
whoever told you that is a complete a______, what were they going to do in prep to soften up the suspension ? they don't have adjustable shocks/struts and they aren't going to replace them on a 32k car so that my friend was a complete bs line to get you in the car.
unless there is something wrong with the suspension or the previous owner changed the springs, the only option is that the tires are overinflated or you just don't like the ride. i'd do like was suggested, leave the car at the dealer and see if they'll give you another car as close to yours as possible to take home, that way you can see if there is any difference in the ride.
if you get a bad vibe from this dealer, find another one if you can and take the car to them. the trans thing does not sound normal and like nipper said, if it doesn't do it consistently, they are going to need to keep it for a few days.
