I'm confident Tom's tune will extend the life of the transmission greatly. You can feel the slip they program into it on on the stock tune, even without the shudder present.

I was told it's so the launch feels more comfortable. Seems immensely dumb if you ask me. Even if a custom tune is less comfortable (and Tom's is the opposite) I'd take reliability over a comfortable launch any day.

Has anyone else had their car randomly surge while driving? Was on my way to work this morning and the car revved from 2-3k while cruising.

I swear, these cars. They're so weird. A quick Google and quora question said something about transmission solenoid. Hopefully the damn TCM isn't starting to go out again. Was replaced in February of 2017 while rental agency owned it.
