My car has an automatic transmission.
Failure of the transmission speed sensor is a likely cause of this behavior. You have remarkably few miles for this model year! Replacing the speed sensor may be a good time to change the transmission fluid and filter as well - simply because of age and hot/cold weather cycles. A certified professional from YourMechanic can assist you with a diagnosis of the shifting problem and can replace the transmission speed sensor if this verified as the problem.
