Na. Combination of no cigar, and the wrong song on the radio. Ya' just gotta get tough with these auto shifters. They're meant to be slammed! The harder ya' hit em, the more juice goes through the wire.

Not slow at all. It moves through the gears fast enough.

I can't help but think over the lifetime of the vehicle, that would be somewhat detrimental to it.
There's no muscling at all. Simply push it fwd or backward and hold it there until you get the gear you want. Less effort than ratcheting through the "clicks".

From Allpar: "When you pull it back to move into gear, the shifter does not stay in place instead returning back to the middle position. As you shift from Reverse into Neutral and then into Drive or Sport, the shifter clicks through the gears but always returns to the center position of the shift console."

Push the shifter all the way forward and you get park. Pull it all the way back and you get drive.
Read what I wrote above. This is not rocket science.
