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.
Like others, lazy shifting in standard mode, with "lag" between 1st and 2nd, 2nd and 3rd, and occasionally 3rd and 4th.
