I printed it and tried to show him, but, they still didn't want frustrating. So, I waited for 2 hrs and the Tech manger said we applied an update to fix the hesitation and shifting. It was TSB 11-10-2! I can say the throttle is much more responsive and the RPM's hold higher..very noticable. I just hope this doesn't lower MPG's. I'll post back after a few tanks of gas. So far, I very much like the Update. Only negative is when car is at a full stop, I still feel idle is a little low. But, overall, throttle has come alive with this update.
Damianinpa, is your throttle response better because it operates at higher RPMs or is throttle response better generally?

I ask because my December build has pretty poor throttle response when fully warm. Wonder if they are continually tweaking the programming and went backwards on this part.
