I also had my dealer do a flash software update on my trans, ever since I have not felt that hard shift, it used to happen frequently after I first started it up.

Took it in...
They could not get it to re-produce the problem, since I had to warm it up by driving there, but I needed my service done anyways.
They checked for any available updates and mine is equipped with the most current, so they said as far as they can see, everything is normal.
I have been driving it like normal ever since, and I have noticed it getting a LITTLE better, but if it continues another 1000 miles, I'll leave it there overnight so they can see what I mean.
It is what it is for now I suppose...

Did you ever get this issues figured out? I am having the exact same issue you described with my brand new 2015 Sport. I'm not liking the hard shift into second..Thanks

Default Hesitation on up-shifts between 3rd and 4th....

Okay...I guess my truck is fitting in this category and pattern except mine does the same thing on the 3rd to 4th up-shift when cold! My Longhorn was built in April '15 and shifted beautifully until about 3,300 miles. Now when the transmission is cold it has a lousy hesitating up-shift between 3rd and 4th....very jerky. When the tranny is fully warmed up it is back to as smooth as butter. What's with this? The weather is colder now so maybe that is a factor, but this sucks! Shouldn't do it. Haven't taken it into the dealer yet as it just started this. Will a new valve body perhaps eliminate this issue? Is there a TSB our on this? Any thoughts and suggestions are welcome!

My truck does the same thing Stax. I have learned that if you accelerate in first to about 1800 rpm and then left off the gas, it will shift into second smooth. I have started doing this and I don't have any issues.

strange. Mine might shift a little rough at 50 below zero but once I have been driving for like 5 minutes she's fine.
