I park in the driveway, full sun, level ground. It is just hard to maneuver the shifter out of park. Sometimes I have to pull so hard it feels like I am going to break off the handle. The gears themselves sound fine, no harsh bumps or loud noises. I think the problem is in the handle going into the steering column itself - but not sure. Hoping this is not the early signs of a big transmission problem. The lever itself is hard to move.
My car was getting hard to shift out of park. All I had to do was start applying the emergency brake and that took care of the problem. Thanks for your help.
