Hi! I'm wondering if anyone else is experiencing this same noise. When the Atlas up shifts (usually in gear 6-8) after acceleration to cruising speed that last gear that drops the rmp usually creates a "thud" sound that appears to come from the tranny. Its not super loud, its faint but it has me concerned. Up-shifts at high rpm seem to be ok, just when it up-shifts from say 2500rmp to 1500rpm. Maybe its an overdrive but It does this in auto and manual mode.

anyone else experience this? wondering if I should take it in...

Yes. I have heard it under those conditions. Infrequent. I'm going with torque converter lockout...but who knows.
