car   Noises During Shifting problem 3
Failure Date: 12/22/2003

I am complaining of a clunking sound and a hard shift coming from the transmission in a 2-3 upshift in a 03 Silverado automatic. I have taken it to the dealer many times and they tell me that gm says the noise and shifting is normal. I have driven many cars and nothing I have driven shifts like that. I wish gm would have to do a recall and correct the problem.
