Saturn Transmission

Recently bought a 2001 Saturn for my daughter. 105k miles and car runs fine. Very recently the automatic transmission has started to shift very harshly. Even with my foot on the brake, shifting into drive from park the transmission bangs into gear. Any ideas on what may be the issue. It was a little low on fluid but topping it off did not have any effect.

Thanks

Bob
