After 2500 miles, here are my initial thoughts.
The 1st to 2nd shift programing is ridiculously quick. Your into 2nd gear at 10mph.
Wouldn't this depend on the gas pedal/throttle position? What is the RPM in 1st gear when the shift to 2nd takes place? If you floor it, I'm guessing it will reach much higher RPM (and speed) before it shifts to 2nd.
But in general, in leisurely driving, I think lots of auto transmissions shift out of 1st gear very early. 1st is basically just to get moving. It's no different in my Charger and in wife's Q5. The Charger can actually be in 3rd gear when rolling at 10 mph.
Thanks for the review. Are you happy with it overall?
