Steve -- I have also experienced this with my 3.0. I think it is a suspension noise, rather than a tranny noise, because, like you, I have noticed it with sudden weight shifts with deceleration at low speeds. I noticed it very early on (first few hundred miles), but I decided I was being paranoid and ignored it; it's still there, I think, but certainly hasn't gotten worse (3300 mi. now), and I'm not too worried about it. I will be interested to see what Jon's dealer has to say, too.

I've occasionally noticed a slight, very minor throttle hesitation when revving from idle; maybe I'm not being enough of a perfectionist, but I don't think of this as a major problem in what is an otherwise superb engine. I would be interested in hearing others' experiences, though, and if this is a malfunction which may get worse with time, I would like to hear about it. Till then, I'll be out driving ;) .
