Hello everyone. Just got my new blue 2007 Mini Cooper with the new 6 speed auto about three weeks ago. I commute to work and have noticed that automatic seems to get lost at low speeds. I'll be coasting along traffic and when I accelerate it'll hesitate before shifting up. Sometimes this shifts can be rather abrupt, almost like a slip. Using the paddle shifters, no delay. Anyone notice this?
I've just taken delivery of an S and I am really happy with it, beautifully put together, really classy cabin, sensational performance and roadholding. I have had 3 earlier minis and this one blows them away.
In D when pulling away from standstill the car hesitates and then suddenly it lurches forward except if I am ultra cautious on the gas. That is quite disconcerting at junctions.
Should I expect this 'feature' to diminish as the car gets run in?
