I had the original reflash done and noticed no difference whatsoever. I personally don't think the dealer did it, they have yet to produce any paperwork saying that it was done- and I've asked them 3X in the last 6 months. I think I'm going to take it to another dealer for the 20k service and see if they will do the latest reflash.
Let me describe a problem and see if any of you V6 guys had this and the TSB fixed it. When I come to a stop sign and make less than a total and complete stop, it's like the car shifts to 1st and then jerks badly when I take off. If I'm sitting at a light and take off, then it shifts fine. It like the trans should have gone to 2nd at the stop sign but went to 1st instead. It's impossible to take off smoothly if I don't come to a total stop and sit for several seconds.

Anyone else had this problem?? Thanks
