We've got a 2007 3.0, and the transmission sucks. It never seems to be in the right gear and half the time, when starting from a stop, it gives a sharp clunk as my foot transitions from brake to accelerator. I've got a call into my SA to bring it in. I'm hoping they have a software update. Sport mode makes it worse, try to stop smoothly in sport mode and the transmission downshifts too much leading to engine brake. Other than that the car is great.
