2008 Astra XE
Default Shift Flare in Automatics

Does anybody notice this too? AUTOMATIC ONLY.

Whe starting from a complete stop (after the car is warmed up) when your AUTOMATIC Astra is shifting from 2nd to 3rd gear (which I notice occurs about 2800 rpm) there is a slight shift flare. Mostly I feel it when accelerating slowly to moderately.

I tried three different automatic tranny Astras and they all do it at the exact point.
