2008 Pontiac G6 won't move in drive but will in manual

I have a 2008 Pontiac G6 and I put it into drive (out of park) and it only revved the engine, and didn't move. Then I put it into manual and it did move flawlessly and I was actually able to drive it all the way back home (about 10 miles). Reverse works as well. No check engine lights. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Check your linkage, it may not actually be going into drive. There was a TSB on some models a few years ago. Transmission is probably ok if you can drive in manual and reverse. Could you shift ok while in manual?
