2013 Dodge Charger- AWD4,000
Hard up and down shifts in first 3 or 4 gears. Seems worse when during first few miles after starting.
Slippage when cold, intermittent hard shifting

Same problem when attempting to accelerate gradually or the road inclines. If I let off of the accelerator or force a downshift, it goes away until the next hill. And when I accelerate suddenly just the RPM move but my speed stays the same. Dealer has looked at it twice and was unable to resolve. Flashing the transmission made no difference. I changed the transmission oil and still acting the same.

Same problem where I hear a rumbling sound from drive train when attempting to accelerate gradually or the road inclines. If I let off of the accelerator or force a downshift, it goes away until the next hill. Dealer has looked at it twice and was unable to resolve. Flashing the transmission made no difference. Waiting on a call back from dealership to schedule an appointment so the regional service rep can take a look.
