Software Updates Will Help Harsh Shifting

Software updates are available that may help with harsh shifting issues. Software updates are commonly more effective on newer vehicles. It is possible for a mechanical failure to also cause a harsh shifting problem. Whenever mechanical transmission repairs are performed, the software should be checked and updated as necessary.

Clunk or Popping Noise From Intermidiate Steering Shaft

A clunk or popping sound heard while turning may mean the intermediate steering shafts need realignment. Replacement of the upper intermediate shaft may be necessary.
