So got the car back yesterday. The TSB was applied and have to say I did not really notice much on the ride home. However this morning to car was very smooth through the gears pulling very steady. The low speed gear noise or chatter is still there and the Service Manager who I trust very much said it in fact is normal at low RPM shift ~(2000-2500). The front end clunk from the strut, sway bar or spring was not noticeable when on smooth roads, but I did hear it on rougher roads. Very faint. The gas mileage at 65-67mph was ~40mpg which is my sweet spot. The car definitely has changed for the better, but was not really bad in the first place.
