I just test drove a 2009 Sonata SE 4cyl Auto. Noticed a Problem (?)
with the transmission that concerned me. Up shifts were very firm. No
slipping or delayed shifting or slamming into gear. Just a very
noticeable shift between all gears. My other cars are both GM products
and the transmission shifts are almost unnoticeable, sometimes I have to
check the tachometer to figure out what gear I am in.
Is this rough shifting an indication of a transmission problem or just
the way the transmission is designed?
