That trouble code is the input speed sensor. It is bolted on externally. If you have had any recent work in the area directly above the trans axel, someone may have unhooked it. It is located at 12 o'clock right about the middle of the trans.

A good diagnostician with a scanner can hook up and drive and be able to see the impulse from that sensor. It can be replaced without a major amount of work, however it is a little hard to see. (I think you will find it under the cooler lines, but it has been a few years since I worked on one.

Hope this helps.

Code 315 involves the crank sensor, and code 715 involves the speed sensor in the transmission.
Both sensors would need to be checked, and I would think the car is still covered under the factory warranty.

Someone would need to check the sensor and possibly replace it.
