transmission or engine pulses and jumps mpgs between the 25-45 as if racing when i shift gears and in gear
My 2004, 3.5 Liter, V6 does the same thing. (Forty-one years ago I had a 1974 AMC Gremlin that did something similar.) In my Vue, it seems to happen when traffic is moving along at one of those speeds in the range where the transmission normally shifts to the next gear, but the surrounding traffic isn't accelerating, so the car pulses back and forth between the two gears. My husband is retired and I'm unemployed, which makes it impossible for us to get it diagnosed or repaired. GM needs to make an official recall.

SHAKES AND FEELS LIKE LIKE IT WONT GO LOOSES POWER IT SEEMS
My torque converter on the transmission was replaced by GM. If you're having this problem, get it to a dealer for repair! I spent months with independent repair shops trying to figure out the problem when all along GM was aware of the problem and just not announcing it. I finally got a card in the mail from GM stating they would take care of the problem. Once the converter was replaced, I had no more problems. Now have over 90,000 miles.

Slow to shift out of gear, terrible shake/shimmy between 40 & 55 MPH. Still intermittent though. In process of having it diagnosed.

When driving steady between 20-45mph the rpm bounce. Also a terrible clunking noise from front end. I've replaced several parts according to 'mechanics' problems still there
My vehicle makes a funny noise between 35 to 45 Mph. It is like driving over a grid. I took it to a local Chevrolet dealer because it was a recall on this issue. They were not able to fix the problem. The said the problem is the drive shat. The vehicle has a lot highway miles but it is in a perfect condition.
