Transmission downshifting hard into 5th

I tow a car hauler that is about 8000 lbs. on my last trip occasionally when the truck would downshift into 5th under a load, it would bang in there pretty hard. Not a smooth transition, not every time just some times.

Just wondering it that was normal or the start of a potential issue.

Anyone experience this?

Sounds to me like maybe a trans solenoid issue. I know there have been several that had them replaced due to shifting issues.

I don't know if they went through a redesign or something.

I recommend bringing this up during your next dealership visit, ftodaro; they'll perform an inspection and make any needed service recommendations. Let us know what you hear from them; should you need my assistance, just send a PM my way.
