Q: Transmission shifting funny in traffic

asked by on

I just bought a used 2010 Camry LE 4cl with 40k miles. The car was fine on the test drive, but I've now noticed that it shifts erratically in stop and go traffic and just in general at lower speeds (under 15 MPH). So annoying! I feel like I'm getting whiplash. Also, it seems to happen only after driving for a little while. Which would make sense considering it didn't happen on the test drive. What's going on?
