I guess I shouldn't assume that a used car had the update done.
I will try to bring the car in for service to update the firmware. Once I get it scheduled, I'll try to report back on the results.
see if it chatters in gears 3 and 5 when it chatters in 1st, if you may accelerate in a break in traffic. Will point to the clutch, if it does.
Anyway, it should be looked at to see if there's an issue, for sure.
