Never noticed any jerking or "clucking". Only 4k on mine though. I did have a couple incidents but I think they were due to the potholey roads. I'm ultra sensitive to sounds that seem out of normal, because I have this fear that it's gonna break down on me, all the time. I've had too many junker cars.

yeah mines an automatic and there is no jerking at all..... not even the slightest jerk that i could possibly compare this too for you. not to hijack, but i have a question as well. Why on all automatics (or at least toyotas & scions), when you have an automatic, can the shift go from Drive to Neutral without having to hold the button down? And then why can it go from Reverse right through Neutral to Drive without holding the button down? I could never figure this out.

Even after i manually shift it during racing (Autocross) i don't get the "jerk" you speak of. Get it checked out, oh and i also have 20,300 odo.

Shouldn't be anything too major, simple fix usually does it when it comes to this sort of deal.

holy crap! how many miles did you have on that thing? i've got 7100k on mine and i can sometimes here it downshift. weird, maybe i should have it checked.

on the other question, i don't think you'd want to have that option of it going into reverse or vice versa without the button because you'd ruin the tranny going one direction into the other. imagine if you were going at a fairly good speed, accidentally hit the lever and it goes into reverse? hope you have triple A.
