I have an 06 that I bought in Januaray of this year [2015]. A few days ago, as we were driving to Texas from Florida, utilizing the cruise control, I noticed that the tach was jumping slightly and when I looked down the A/T temp light was on. As I was pulling the car off the road it started "neutralling out" somewhat and when I pulled the dip stick it was really hot and had a slight burn smell. We called a tow truck, took it to a mechanic who hooked it up to a computer and found nothing wrong. By this time the A/T light was no longer on and since he couldn't do anything for days anyway we decided to try and limp to our friends house a few hours away. Long story short, we made it all the way to Texas, over 900 miles, without any recurrence. Any ideas anyone?

I hate to ask such a stupid question, but did anyone check the transmission fluid level? Do you have the external trans cooler installed. What was the outside air temperature? Significant hills, or long and flat roads?
