Picked mine up today from the dealer and took the side streets home as that is where alot of my issues surfaced. I must say it is considerably better than before the TSB update. The shutter is reduced and every once in awhile I feel a hint of it (not a deal breaker now like it was before though). The RPM comes up and it definitely has more pep in city traffic. From a stop I let off the brake and within a second or two you can feel the vehicle engage and move forward. Will have to wait a few days to see if the adaptive learning strategy changes anything up as the dealer said it may be a little stiff in regards to shifting the next couple days. All in all the TSB took a car with issues and made it 100% better than it was, Now just wait and see if it reverts back after awhile. Will report back in about a week about any changes either good or bad.
