If the answer is "yes", I'd be talking to the dealer about doing a "let's send this one back and you give me that one over there instead" type replacement.
That might work with an inventory vehicle but one just ordered for customer delivery, I'm not so sure. I figure they'd have to go through the process for lemon laws in the state. I don't think they treat transmission issues any different than, say a faulty brake light. Of course, to the customer, transmission issues at day 1 are bit concerning.

We have our family truckster at the GM dealer right now with transmission woes...2 weeks before power train warranty went out though. (Whew!)

OP, best of luck and let us know what they find. Hopefully just something small that'll have you back on the road in no time.
