While slowing to a stop, there was a giant thunk sound and a jolt like I was rear ended. Stabili-trac and traction control went off-line and transmissionwent out of gear and would not re-engage. Dealer said problem was open draft ssensor The shifting is very harsh in lower gears, especially between 1st and 2nd and when the transmission is warm. Dealer said it is normal, but the loaner Acadia they gave me shifted so much better it's like it wasn't even the same transmission
