Average Mileage: 45,000 mi (35,000 mi - 60,000 mi)


A condition may develop where the shift feel of the automatic transmission becomes to firm or too soft. Revised software for the EGS (Transmission control module) is available which can correct this issue.

    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.
