I have a 2005 Vue 3.5 V6. My Vue sits outside overnight. I live in a cold weather climate. When I start it in the morning, it starts just fine. It sounds like it started in the cold, until it has had a while to warm up. It goes into gear just fine. When I start driving it, the first shift is a little harder than the others. And only the first shift, for the first time driving it during the day. The RPM's sort of linger around 3,000, then it sort of lunges as it shifts gears.

I had the transmission fluid replaced and it didn't really make much difference. Could this something due to the cold weather climate I live in?

Does it do this when it is warm? It sounds like you may have a shift solenoid going bad.
