2015 New Altittude,Hard Shifts...Dont Tell Me!?

Aloha all...I have 2000 miles on a 2015 GC Altitude.Plus and minuses so far,but the trans is driving me nuts! Hard shift into second,specially after lifting foot before second engages...BANG. Same with 5th and hard downshifts into 5th.
Am I doomed!? My fear is our dealer in Spokane will fix one thing and cause 2-3 others?
I do have a friend that is involved in Dodge after-market stuff and can program trans and engines with hot-rod software. Do you boys think the trans program might help, or make things worst?
Thanks in advance with any idea's...just dont want to be a Chrysler Trans victim. Haaaa...cheers!

Ah the infamous hard shift into 2nd.

I've had a few Jeeps do this... I've just learned to live with it and try to avoid it.

Guarantee the dealership will find "no problem"

If the friend unlocks the computer, your power train warranty will be voided. I would try the dealer updates first. Such a shame the V6 transmissions have been problematic.

I had exactly the same issue. Hard bang shifts into second from every stop sign. I was so unhappy. Called my dealer and they said to bring it in for a software update. Did that and smooth as silk ever since. I now enjoy my jeep. Get the software update.
