A harsh 4-3 downshift or other shift quality issues may develop. Revised transmission control module (TCM) software has been released to address these concerns.

    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.
