After reading your post and taking note this morning from my own experience, BA wagon and Territory RWD, the 3-4 gear change is probably the smoothest of all change points under light to moderate throttle and sometimes the tacho drop/noise is all that gives it away. The only clunking I experienced occurred when slowing down to a crawl, auto changes back to first at the same time as you press to take off again, say like approaching a roundabout with traffic in front and moving slowly but not enough to come to a full stop.

I would say it's not normal and needs a look at.

Re: BA xr6, tranmission

Sometimes when engaging Reverse or Drive from Park, my transmission clunks into that gear. I also guess this is normal - correct me if I'm wrong.

The BA doesn't exactly have the latest or greatest auto in the world - it will never be as smooth as the latest Jap or German boxes. But in normal driving should be pretty good - but can thump a bit from 4-3 under power. I'd suggest that you get a dealer to look at it as the car should still be under warranty?
