The actual gear changing is normally done well before the clutches engage/disengage.
I know but maybe the forks take longer to select gears maybe delaying the clutch. But you are right since its slow from 1st to 2nd as well (both already selected). I guess maybe the eletric motor gets stiffer while really cold.

I think slightly slower shifting in cold has been true with every automatic I have had.

Just needs to warm up a bit.

When its really cold I take it easy, feeling (right or wrong) like I need to ease my car into it, like easing my body into running in the cold. I don't even turn the speakers on until its warm inside because (again, right or wrong) I think the cones are more brittle in the cold, too.

Hi folks,

Remember, if you're concerned, you can always bring this up to your dealer the next time you stop by. They'll be able to determine if your vehicle is behaving normally.

Stay warm!
