It finally went into gear after a few attempts, but then said power was reduced by X% and would not up shift. I pulled over after about 200 ft and shut the car down. After starting back up all was fine, and I continued on my way with all systems normal.

I chalked it up to any, or combination of letting it sit for so long, the cold weather and possibly the angle of my driveway (although I park at the top where it is nearly flat).

Intend to just wait and see if it occurs again before taking it in.
