Shifting harshness and shuddering issues related to the operation of the automatic transmission have been addressed by factory service bulletins. The shuddering can feel like the vehicle is being driven over rumble strips.

Hesitation in shifting and then a hard shift usually between 1st and 2nd gear when accelerating. Had codes reset, but shifting harshness still exists.
Loud jerking while shifting gears. Last thing was van rolled backwards after ignition was turned off. The trans has always worried me.

Everytime it shifts the second time, it hesitates and then jerks before going into gear again. Every other time it is a smooth shift. Took it in and had the codes reset and rebooted, but 2 days later the harsh shifting is back.
