How many miles do you have on your Rebel? I thought mine was a software update too. Took it back to the dealership, they updated the software and driving home it happen a couple times. I just kept driving it. I now have 3500 miles on her and she hasn't done it in the last 1000 miles or so. Haha, I'm just going with mine needed to be broken in.

It also has to do with the trasmission software learning to shift. It is very complicated software the will tailor its self to how you drive somewhat. Any time the programming gets reset it can be a bit off or harsh. it can take several hundred miles to get it all sorted out.

With that being said it's probably best to stick to a consistent driving pattern, maybe that will help with the system picking up on the pattern sooner than being thrown off with some inconsistent patterns.

I have heard that the software will take a bit to 'learn' how you drive..could be something mixed up with that?

Try the old "reset" trick, to set the transmission back to stock. Some say this is poppy-****, but I've felt a difference. Of course, it goes back to it's old ways in a few days, but still...

Turn the ignition on, but do not start it. Wait until all the lights go off, and then slowly press the gas to the floor, hold for 5 seconds, and slowly release. Then turn the truck off.

If it goes away temporarily, then you've got an easy argument about the software.
