There is something seriously wrong with the 8 speed transmission. Several problems have been observed where the torque converter does not work properly. It slams into gear from reverse to drive, it will sometimes buck and surge forward when trying to accelerate, and it also makes an occasional grinding sound and causes the auto drive to get confused and loses the ability to accelerate from a stop light.
Sometimes when you backup and put the vehicle into drive it will go ahead a little then make a noise in the rear end like it is slamming into gear. It does it speratically and when I take it into the dealer they are not able to duplicate the problem. It happens once every two or three days, however, it is very embarrassing when you have other people in the vehicle, as it is brand new and I am concerned that it will have a negative effect on the transmission or gear box. I have asked the dealer to have a mechanic take it home overnight so they can duplicate the problem when they are in the vehicle. They refuse to do so.
