Last night, the hesitation on acceleration was so bad, it felt like had a case of whiplash........
Hey fatfocus -

I received your PM and sent a reply to you. Please send me your VIN, mileage, phone #, and dealer info; I'll forward this to your region's Customer Service Manager for review.

Taking it to the dealer will always be the best choice!

As well, is there no adaptive leaning procedure to be carried out as part of the update by the technician after this "recall"? Or is the vehicle just supposed to learn over the next 1K KM as I drive around?...

The dealer will advise you on the adaptive learning procedure when you pick it up. If you'd like, drop me a line with your VIN, mileage, phone #, and dealer info; Iíll loop in your regionís Customer Service Manager.

Hey Kaaru -

Since it's behaving well, are you planning on taking it out for a nice night on the town? This would be an excellent sign of approval!

...Well 1000 miles later my wife wants her old car back. the car now hesitates/bogs down. When you are driving along and give it a little more gas it hesitates and makes a throaty sound then finally (couple of seconds) accelerates and or downshifts. the noise sounds like a fully opened carburetor starving for gas. We never had any roll back issues. Now when you put the car in park and shut it off about 5 seconds later it rolls back about 6 inches. then when you start the car back up it shakes and makes a funny noise for a few seconds...

Welcome to the conversation! Have you seen the dealer about looking into these issues some more? I'd like to escalate this to the Customer Service Manager in your region. Please PM me your VIN, mileage, phone #, and dealer info; I'll get it started.

If anyone is still experiencing issues with the transmission since the 12B37 update, please PM me and include the same info; Iíll forward this to your CSM too.

Have a good day all,
