Is there a long term solution? I have seen some people describe turning traction control off, I am not interested in doing that. The product should function properly with the safety features turned on.
One of things dealers will tell you that is true is that clutches can take a bit of mileage to "break-in". I wouldn't worry about it until you have a thousand miles or so on the car. If it's still misbehaving then a trip to the dealer is in order.
