Unhappy Transmission prob with my 2013 Outback 3.6

Having a transmission problem with my 2013 Outback 3.6, and have not been able to find another post about similar problem.

Shifting into Drive when the engine is cold results in a brief but delayed shift, and the shift itself is a pretty hard lurch - even occasionally a rocking forward/backward. The colder (engine and weather) the harder the shift. There is typically a thud type sound - no metal on metal sound. It is only when moving into Drive. Whether it's from Park to Drive, or from Reverse to Drive after backing out of the driveway. Moving into Reverse from Park when cold is not a problem. There are no other noticeable problems with the transmission, and once the engine is a bit warmed up, it will shift fairly smoothly.

I purchased the Outback used with about 35K miles on it. Currently has 130K, but have had this problem for at least the last 50-60k miles. I purchased the extended warranty, so had it checked out couple times pre 100K miles. Have had one dealer tell me nothing was wrong twice, and another had me do transmission flush/fluid change recently which had no effect.

Appreciate any help, thoughts, guidance. Been reluctant to try a Japanese auto specialist thinking the dealer should be best with tranny, but about out of options otherwise.

I have a 2011 outback 3.6r (123000 miles) when the engine is cold, the blue light in the lower left corner is on it idles at approx 1500 rmp as it warms up it drops to 1000 then to 7 - 800 rpm. If i let it warm up properly there is no thud, if i try to go to drive before that 7 to 800 rmp it alway does. This only happens when the car is cold so sitting for 4 hrs or more. It doesnt do it if i go from park to reverse, only when i goto drive.

Did you get the P1710 (and P0700) codes?

East Coast Outback, Thanks this sounds about right. I dont have a blue light, but otherwise seems right on. Just seems off to have to warm up a car these days. Wonder if there is some adjustment/programming that needs to be made so the engine does not rev so high when started.

awd-gg, she's not throwing off any error codes presently.
