#3622 of 3623 Transmission shifting to higher gear to soon

2007 Montego 6 speed trans. 31,000 miles. Transmission shifts into higher gears to soon. Engine tends to lug at lowwer speeds, gas milage gone as I have to down shift to soon. Love the 6 speed, gets 30mpg at interstate speeds. Anyone had this problem.

I've got 49k on a 2005 Montego with the same transmission problems. I've read TSB 06-11-4 and a lot of my symptoms coincide with the bulletin. I'm going to take it to the dealer this Friday (still under an extended warranty) and see what they think.
The vibrations in low rpm speeds have gotten noisier to the point of annoyance.
