Another dealer. Same response. I was told by the customer service manager for this region that there was a new version of MFT released in December. Service tech told me that was BS. Same issues. Same answers. Cannot duplicate. I'm really not surprised at. Annoyed I wasted another 3 hours of my life on this pile of shit, though.
Was turning a corner a couple days ago, traffic was coming so I got on it. The car sat there for 3 seconds before it could figure out what gear to put it in. Then it shifted so low in the power band it crawled for another 3 to 4 seconds, jumped into another gear before downshifting and actually getting out of peoples way. This is normal operation. The grinding and missed shifts are all normal operation.
