Car starting to feel a little loose and transmission wanting to be kind of lazy. Compensating by using sport mode in an attempt to condition the car to shift tighter. May take in for service and alert dealership soon.
odd automatic transmission performance, sometime "hyper" sometimes too lax
Like others, lazy shifting in standard mode, with "lag" between 1st and 2nd, 2nd and 3rd, and occasionally 3rd and 4th.
I have experienced the same problem. Glad to know the solution.
