Silverado 3500 8-cyl

Truck downshifts to passing gear such as entering a highway on ramp and stepping down to enter slower traffic engine revs to red line on tach because it does not shift into any gear leaving you hung out to dry in traffic until you figure out what's goin on you have fully let up for it to find a gear by this time your speed came drop 10 mph very dangerous, had to two different dealers twice both said it has no problem one said it was the torque management system and it was normal.but if I wanted it to go away take it some where and have the program wiped from computer but warranty will then be void.also truck slams into gear when slowing down to go around a corner.when starting vehicle it jumps forward so bad I am afraid to keep it in my garage. Spoke to two different Chevy reps both are like talking to a wall, they are not employed to help you just to run around in circles until you give up.research all Chevy products before buying. Silverado have alot of transmission issues. Just a horrible truck.
