Automatic gearbox on my 62 plate Q3 keeps either changes early or holds gears for a huge amount of time, it also jumps into hill disent mode to a huge raw of the engine when coasting down long slopes.
Has anyone got the same issues?
Hi. I found you have to be very lite on the throttle to get it to change gear properly. As for the down hill thing. The car tries to maintain the speed at the top of the hill, to do this it changes down the gears to maintain the speed. this in turn pushes the revs up considerably. I cancel this action by changing up manually. Seems to work.
Having had many top marques befor other systems are smoother and less aggresive.That said i have what i have so will try tapping accross to manual even though I would like my Automatic to be just that.
HI, to keep you posted.The car is in now, they have had it for two days and called three times to check i will authorise staff to test drive it, i did three times i said (nobody has yet).I gave a full discription of when the faults occured so requested some one had it for the weekend. with any luck they will find the fault because it has been a total pain of a car and i am fed up.After reading other peoples posts i realise i have vibration others are complaining about but thought nothing about, i think i'll stick to big issues.
