I'd try the battery disconnect and see how that works. Just remove it for ten minutes to reset all computers.

It's also not a bad idea to test if this happens using the paddles.

Monitoring the transmission temperature can be done through the vehicle EVIC. It would be a good idea to check the temperature when driving to see if it's excessive.

Let us know what you find out.

I can teach it to you but I can't understand it for you.

Took her out last night as the weather was great and the Mrs loves the ride. First issue, after pulling out of the driveway the tranny struggled to shift into 2nd, haven't experienced anything like it in other vehicles. It was a jerky, hesitation but after it shifted it didn't happen again the rest of the night.

What did happen is on the way home we have a few back roads we love to drive *spirited*. I turned left and punched it - the RPM jumped to 7K but no shift, almost felt like the tranny was disconnected. When it did grab it was the roughest shift I've ever felt in a car. As she accelerated it felt like the car was pulsing.

Haven't experienced this before and hope others have experienced it and there's a software update or something available to fix the issue.
Hi ChargedUp78,

If you decide to visit your local dealership I'd be happy to follow up with them for you if needed. Just PM our page with your VIN and let me know!
