09 auto problem

My friend with I think an 09 3500 srw auto trannie is not happy because the exhaust brake when towing downshifts so hard it is brutal. I asked on this or another dodge forum and the answer was a reflash on the trannie.

He asked his dealer and he was told nothing can be done. I saw him last week and he is so unhappy he said he is going to trade it for a manual.
what do you guys think that have the new 6 sp auto. I was and am surprised of how mad he is.

mine did the same thing at first, give it a while and it will get better. Try running the break all the time at first to learn how to feather your foot on and off to make it stop hard or just feather out like its not on... I dont think there is any problem at all with it.

It was a buy back and he had the manual and liked the trannie but not good service on the truck. Auto was at the dealer but he has owned this truck for at least one year. I want to help him but I also might not see him for months.
