Your car is under warranty, after it is diagnosed and repaired please post back and tell us.


#3

Is this every time after starting the vehicle or just from a cold start?

from a cold start

after the first shifts it goes back to normal

Ask the dealership if they have any software updates (re-flashes) for your car’s computers. Otherwise this seems like some kind of transmission or engine/transmission interaction malfunction. It might be something pretty simple to fix though. Does your speedometer seem to be ok, especially when this is happening?


#7

Again, what is your service department saying? Keep all copies of your service orders and your dealers reports.


#8

This sounds like a sluggish valve in the valve body. Try letting the engine idle for about 30 seconds right after a cold start before putting it in gear. If it doesn’t slam on the first shift, then it is most likely the valve body. I would not mention this to the dealer if it works because they will then tell you that a 30 sec warm up is required. It is not required and they need to fix the issue.


#9

Unknowns are mileage, whether or not the transmission has ever been serviced, and whether or not the car has ever been driven hard. I know; Corvettes don’t get flogged.


#10

mileage 10,000km no trans service
as far as driven hard been there done that

im 75 and now take it easy, plus my wife is usually with me…

Again I ask, have you talked to the dealer as this is a warranty problem.

i wanted it on my work order to establish a history.
