2009 AURA XE
09 Aura XE, 6-spd transmission question
Good day Everyone.
I bought a 2009 Aura XE (2.4 liter, 6-spd) about 9 months ago from an elderly gentleman. It had 22K on the odometer, now about 33K. Generally speaking it's been an okay car although I don't think I'd buy it again. It doesn't get the mileage we thought we'd get...... but I digress....
The thing that bugs me most about the car is the transmission performance. It's just plain sloppy / bad. It seems the tranmission is always 'searching' for the right gear, it tends to shift hard on downshifts (like you're popping the clutch into a lower gear) but shifts too soft on the upshifts (1st to 2nd to 3rd....etc). I am assuming, however, that this transmission is operating exactly as designed by GM Powertrain.
My general question for you transmission experts is: can this 6-speed transmission (or the electronic brains that run it) be 're-programmed' to make it operate any differently? Is there any flexibility / adjustibility in the way the transmission operates?? If so would this have to be done by a GM garage?
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.
