Is this safe to drive? It does not happen everytime I start and drive the car.

At low speeds it seeps like the transmission is ‘slipping’. I excel slowly to about 25-30mph and or 3,000 rpms and it drops down fast and the car jerks. Or in traffic, or going up hill sometimes I’m flooring it and doesn’t want to go after it jumps.

Service manager said since there are no lights coming on, it’s fine to wait 2 weeks for an appointment.
Stopped by dealer tonight in hopes of catching someone still in the shop and a sales guy standing along with 2 mechanics agreed to take a quick ride. He said definitely don’t keep driving it, then offered to sell me a new one :rolleyes:

I have a video I’ll post the link below. There is a seatbelt to the car seat that is clicking/banging so that metal on metal sound is that

I can't tell much from the video-but suspect the change between gear ratios isn't happening perfectly. So the car gets stuck between gears, in neutral before the next gear is selected.
How many miles on your car?
