Angry That Damn Torque Converter!

Just like many people on this forum, I am too getting that growling noise and from what I read on here it might be the torque converter. Does anybody know if Chrysler is aware of this problem and if they will issue a TSB on it? The noise gets very annoying especially while towing. Also, just wondering. With alot of talk about the eco boost on here what do ya'll think about the double clutch feature instead of a torque converter?

I can only offer up some conversation on the first part. I am certain CJD is aware that some customers are complaining about the noise. Will they issue a TSB? Maybe...if they get enough complaints. They will definitely issue a TSB if transmissions start to fail.
