Default 05 Sebring 2.7l Transmission issue

I have a 05 Sebring 2.7 v6. I just pruchased it in Feb. with 8000 miles. It ran fine for a while then the trans started to shift funny. When I take my foot of the gas and slow to around 30 mph, the trans does a hard upshift.When you stop, there is a clunk. I took it to the dealer and they did a fast relearn of the computer and uploaded the newest flash. I the dealer said that is all they could do and they hope that this fixes the problem.

WELL: It seamed to be fine for a few days then, back to the same issues. Can you pull the battery cable to reset the computer. I know this works in Ford's.

Any help!!!!

I think i may have figured it out...
my mom has the same year sebring, 'cept it is convertable, but hers does the same thing. The gear for 1st is bigger than it should be and the gear for 2nd is smaller, so on the downshift it hits againts the 1st gear and pops back onto it, hence the hardness...nothing with anything electrical, purly mechanical

by the way...this is just a hunch, heh
