2014 Mustang Select Shift Issues

I just bought a brand new mustang and have been having issues using the select shift. It won't let me shift down or up at times. Anyone else having this issue???

How far down and how far up? You cannot take off in 4th I believe. Downshifts are locked out too after a certain point if I recall.

If it is brand new, I would take it to the dealer without hesitation.

Isn't the select shift supposed to not let you shift into any gear other than 4th after you go out in 1st? I think it tries to make you go from 1st-4th-6th to save fuel. Also, it doesn't let you downshift either since that technically uses more fuel than coasting in neutral or pushing the clutch in.

I saw this under the title of "selectshift" in the 2014 owners manual (page 163):

Note: Some models have a blink feature (if equipped). If manually
selecting a gear that is out of the current vehicle speed range, the
vehicle will not make the requested shift and will blink the current gear.
