Also told Jim McKay to keep it for 4 or 5 days to test drive it. I also told the service guy that I will come and drive it and have one of the techs ride with me.

well #392of 409 If and only If none of us purchased another GM car we can make them feel it, like we have to feel it. just keep telling folks and at some point gm will have to face the loyal customers they screwed! I'm so pro 'non" gm. funny how the dealers know this and will try to get you to buy this crappy car (I know) another of my family members went to gm up in nj rt 22. needless to say when I was done they went across the road and picked up a honda. sorry gm I can't sit back and watch you do this to people.

Take it from someone who knows....I have just had my 2007 SS Impala Transmission rebuilt and not by GM since they said the company that last did the routine transmission servicing caused they problem. (the transmission company management were as shocked to find this out as I was but held on to their integrity with me by fixing it at just the cost of the parts to completely break down the transmission.
I am afraid from the description you provide that you have about 3,000 miles left before the transmission begins to lurch from standing still. Start recording this problem now with GM. If it is not covered under the ORIGINAL 3 year warranty, more than likely, they will not cover it or find a reason not to. They will offer you an option of purchasing a new transmission at about 3,000. Do not accept this offer. The transmission must be broken down. There is a flaw in its design. That is the reason the new transmission is cheaper than rebuilding it. Sorry for your problems. I know how you feel, but I don't think the flush will work.

To all that are having problems at between 60 and 70K miles on their impala transmissions of these years, please note this.
When you take it to the Chevy dealer of your choice, which is what the gm customer service department will tell you to do, they will offer you a "deal" of putting in a new transmission at around $3,000.00 with a "warranty". Do not accept this option and get out of there if you have to have your car towed to a reliable transmission specialist.
Ask any transmission company who just handles transmissions and they will tell you how many of the Impala transmissions (also in other gm vehicles) they have fixed. What gm does not want you to know is there is a design flaw in the transmission itself so the option of putting in the same flawed machinery is not as good as it sounds. In order to fix it, it has to be broken down. Now my Impala runs better than it did when it was brand new. It has the feel of so much more responsive power like a car from the late 60's. However, I own this car because it was my dad's last vehicle. I WILL NEVER OWN A GM PRODUCT AGAIN.
GM blamed my transmission specialist who just did routine maintenance on the car for the beginning problems with the transmission. (NOTE: I HAD ALREADY STARTED A DIALOG WITH GM CUSTOMER SERVICE PRIOR TO THE TRANSMISSION COMPLETELY BREAKING DOWN) Expect this response if your car has been near any other service source.
Forewarned is forearmed! Buy Ford or a foreign brand!
