I know I'm not driving a 70K truck, but my Land Cruiser before my Ridgeline had a buttery smooth transmission. This one seems to require a bit more pressure to put it into reverse or drive, and at that, it sometime makes an initial loud 'clunk' when doing so. I haven't noticed anything unusual in the way it drives. Is this a normal operative sound? Anyone? If I'm parked on an incline, it's a sure bet to get that sound every time.
