Still no improvements, it appears it's getting worse. Shift hesitation and grinding lasting longer than it should. I will give it till 1K mileage than I am taking it in again. Dealer told me if I bring it in again, I will get the same response. It's worrying me to the point of it being unsafe to drive, last night I attempted to make a turn ahead of oncoming traffic and the hesitation on launch was not responsive as it should be, I now am afraid to make that move again something of which where I live is very common.

I love the car besides this but the transmission is an integral part of the car to the point where I am now regretting buying it along with the dealer's corrective action plan. Regardless what they say, it does not behave like a manual, drive like a manual or even sound like one.
