Default TSB for 2008 tranny

Just got my 08 PT vert turbo back from dealer. A slight, intermittent shudder in 2nd gear.

They flashed the tranny chip. They said there's a TSB. So, if you have an '08, perhaps you'd like to know about the TSB.

I only drove it 3 miles after picking it up, but since the problem was few and far between, hard to tell if this fixed the issue.

Quick update: drove the car 20 miles today. My gas mileage JUMPED by more than 3 mpg! I called the dealer. They didn't flash the tranny chip - they flashed the PCM with a tranny update. But it seems to me there was another update embedded in that program. I could hardly keep the car under 65, and I was barely touching the pedal to do that! The car has a bunch more power at low end, and the trans is silky smooth.

I have some more driving to do - let you know if anything changes.
