i went to my Charger forum; i have an 08 as our main car and did a quick search on Chryslers new 8 speed auto tranny. Sounds like the same problems you guys/ladies are experiencing. (SEE LINK BELOW) The clunk mentioned is also on my car but only if the car is driven differently from the last time you drove. E.G. spirited driving will produce the clunk once or twice as the ECM learns whats going on. As i mentioned before i expect this problem to be widespread across manufacturers as they adapt to new standards using multi speed trannys for mileage gains. Until the technology catches up with the growing pains of these new designs this is going to be around at least for ahwile until they figure it out. BTW i talked to a new 2013 37x owner at the golf range the other day. He had not experienced the problem in his new car. He has owned it for a couple months though and he said its smooth and fast in traffic with no lag. Either his car doesn't have it or they have improved it on the new models. I'll keep checking.

how weird - i was going to type this -
2007 C203 Sport shifting question.
From a Benz forum and this is from 2007!
I purchased an new 2007 C230 Sport with the 7speed auto transmission. I have an issue and wondered if any one experienced it.. This is a new car with 1k miles, so i will be taking it tomorrow for the 1K suggested diagnotic service. My issue is that in "S" mode, which is standard mode, I slow the car down to a stop and when the car is stopped at a traffic light, it lunges forward, almost feels like is still in gear and dropping to the start gear ? any ideas ? The service tech thinks its a program glitch and might need to have anew program downloaded. It doesn't happen on "C" mode.
i will update tomorrow.

I'm ready to purchase a new car and have been seriously considering the 2013 G37x. Is this the same transmission as those having trouble from 2009-2012? I've been driving an I30t for 15 years and love it, thus went to Infiniti first. Now, I'm concerned...

As far as I know, there have been no major changes since 2009 on the G37X. A friend of mine had a 2009 G37 2-door coupe (NOT AWD) which had a 6-speed transmission that seems to be trouble free. Based on my experience with the G37X's 7-speed transmission, my advice is "stay away." If you can deal with 2WD and 2 doors, consider the coupe. Too bad, I love everything else about the G37X, but the transmission needs to work! A couple of my co-workers have Mercedes C300 and C350 4MATIC's and love them. No issues with those, as far as I know, and the price is not as bad as you might think. Best of luck!

I have a 2010 Coupe that has the transmission issues discussed on this thread. I also have a 2012 Sedan that has no issues.

i have only talked to later model owners who said they dont have a tranny shift problem so i suspect its been worked on and improved in the later models. Good luck?
