Default Re: Transmission Jumps

This really isn't anything to be worried about. Basically what you are doing is fooling the car into upshifting, and then quickly forcing it to do a two step downshift when you step on the gas. There are many cars that behave exactly the same way as the Outlook, they just probably aren't a six speed auto and don't have to haul 5200 lbs of car around.

As was mentioned previously, much of this unexpected behavior disappears with time as the software "learns" your driving style. I wouldn't be worried about this at all.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
