Just thought I would put this out there and see if anyone else has noticed this.
Basically I hear a click/clunk when shifting the auto from R into D, I hear it when the box engages 1st.
Same thing happens when coming to a slow stop from 80ks after the box has been in 6th gear.

Took it to the dealer, got the usual BS line it's normal compared to a similar vehicle line with no explanation to what causes it. I don't think they know to be honest. :hmmm:

The box feels fine and shift nice etc but I feel it's getting worse and now happens all the time.

Hmmm, hate that line. Saw some nice advice from another forum member that was basically "if it's normal, can you show me on one of the other cars here please". I've never noticed such a thing, but mines an A5 and sometimes I need to be hit in the face by something before I notice it. Good luck.

If the noise was normal it would be in all the vehicles not just your car. Sounds like they have no clue or cannot be bothered trying to find a fault. (I don't have this noise in my series 2 VE).

Options -

1. Go to another Holden dealer service centre and see what they diagnose. If you get the "it is normal" and in other cars I would ask them to show you a written advice from Holden indicating that this is normal in their gear boxes. As above would also ask them to show you another vehicle same year as your car with the same fault.

2. You may like to try a reputable transmission specialist and see if they have an opinion as to what it is. If they do, pay them for their service and get them to give you a statement in writing on the fault. Then give it to Holden and ask them to rectify it assuming your car is still under warranty.

(Just be sure it is a gear box issue and not a clunking diff you are hearing.)

I've got the same issue: only the opposite. I notice a clunk from going D to R however it's fine other than that. I have a 2013 VE S2 SV6

Thanks for the feedback all.
I have done the rounds the dealers before and know how they operate. It's bloody pathetic really and they wonder why people get upset.
I have the car booked in at a trans place already once I get the report from them, dependant on what they say. I will call customer assistance and go from there.
My view is if it's normal it would have done it from day one not when it's got 60K on the clock.
