Unfortunately, this is normal. The tranny is just downshifting. I've found that it happens more if you press the accelerator hard. I've learned to keep it easy on the gas. Or, you can drive in S3 mode. This puts the tranny at different shift points, and the problem is much better.


: I've noticed this a few times this month:

: From a slow rolling speed of about 20, if I decide to accelerate quickly I have noticed a hesitation and then a jerk as the car finds its gear....is this a timing chain issue or a slipping tranny?

: Either way I am sure I am looking at big bucks.....just in time to eat up my bonus....Ug
