Trany would slip then suddenly bang into gear,actually shaking the car.Mainly transitioning from going downhill then making your way uphill.Almost like the trasmission did not know the gear it was suppose to be in then catches. No trouble found. Dealer reported torque converter fluid seal was torn and leaking. A side note, I park in a garage and noticed no fluid leaks on the floor. Dealer removed some suspension, along with transmission. Replace seal and cleaned underside of vehicle.
