Transmission noise

My 2019 Jetta with 8 speed automatic makes a grinding noise at low rpm shifts under light load. I read about other complaints online. Any others experience it and anyone get VW to fix it?

Went to Gunther VW today for recall #90L4 and to complain about transmission noise. They heard noise and said it was normal referencing TSB 23-18-01 “no repair needed at this time” Also showed me TSB 32-18-01TT that says “This is a normal character of the torque converter stator as the torque converter clutch is applied. “ I was told something may be done after enough customer complain. He mentioned the VW 800 number. I am not happy.

I have a hard time believing issues like this are normal.

If anyone is up for it, getting a second opinion from another dealer or even an independent service shop could help.
