I own a 2004 Honda Civic Hybrid (automatic), approx. 65,000 miles. It's been a wonderful car, no major problems, and continues to give us awesome gas mileage.

This past winter we noticed that it was harder to shift from park, to reverse, to drive. But it quickly resolved itself after we had a tune-up and we were fine for a few months. However, this past month we've had a VERY difficult time trying to engage the automatic gear stick. There hasn't been any "grinding" noises, and there's been no changes in driving (no sputtering or stuttering). You almost have to throw your weight into it! I keep telling my husband to take it in, but he has yet to do so. I hope there isn't a problem with the tranny, and I hope its a simple fix. So what's up?
