The automatic gearbox changes gears very hard, sometimes it doesn't want to shift to the third gear.  It maybe has been like that, more and less, since the breakdown in 2002.
Any ideas aboat it?

I bought the car from Minnesota in February this year.  It ran good before the automatic gearbox breakdown this summer.

*The car is painted copper metallic with black roof and black scallops, but according to the VIN plate (AUU) it should be painted vice versa.  The car is repainted once, but I´m sure it has been repainted in the same color combination it was from factory because it is copper metallic inside the doors, trunk and floor.  It must have been painted wrong from factory, or wrong vin plate.  I met Mr. Phil Skinner this summer in Västerås Sweden, and he saw it.
