Read your codes and have the transmission rechecked under the warranty. You say the engine idles rough "up and down", Is that with the transmission in Neutral or in Park ? The transmission should have nothing to do with the "engine idle condition" if the transmission is in PARK. Look things over for loose vacuum or electrical connections as well.
