SOURCE: my car is jerking while accelerating and reaching certain RPM

I would look for a fault in the ignition system such as a cracked spark plug. Might need a scope check to put your finger on the problem

SOURCE: engine or transmission knock / rattle upon

I had the same problem on my 2006 Lucerne and it was the engine mount located on the front of the vehicle behind the radiator.

How is it you have the issues & the dealer never drives it,
to experience the same thing you are?

They are jerking you & don't care to resolve

Either leave it there,try a different dealer or have the
factory rep come & work on it

The engine sputters when in drive but runs smooth in park


You have a Idle air control valve,but it would not stall you out when you accelerate,A badly plugged airfilter can stall you as you acclerate, A plugged exhaust or catalytic can do this but you would not be able to rev the engine, and you would has power loss on acceleration.The only thing that comes close to what you are experiencing would be the MAF (mass air flow) air duct taking in false air check to see if there is any torn that can cause false air.
