Thanks- it seems to be more of a nuisance than anything else; I can certainly live with it but was just worried that my transmission was on the verge of offing itself

Weird ďkickĒ when coming to a stop

2020 turbo4 / A8

Anyone else notice a weird ďkickĒ sometimes when coming to a stop? Like the car lurches a bit when the transmission downshifts to 1st gear when coming to a stop sign/light/etc.

Engine pulsing at startup?

Iíve had a few situations my 2.0T (a8) will pulse a little but at cold startup/reversing out of my garage- almost as if I was lightly tapping my foot on the gas and revving the engine slightly. It...

Car upshifts too much when turning?

So Iíve noticed a strange behavior with my 2020 Camaro (2.0T / A8)- sometimes when turning (say, from a stop light/sign), the transmission will upshift during the turn, leaving the car a little...

Now that it’s cooling off, I’ve gotten 5.8 seconds on my stock I4 automatic.

Can’t touch the SS numbers obviously, but for a $24,000 car I can’t complain :)

Yeah, the dealer claimed they couldn’t hear it, and I don’t think I can stand another 3 days in one of their loaner Equinoxes. Maybe I’ll see if the guy that changes my oil can diagnose it.

My 2020 LS makes a bit of a ticking noise under acceleration- starting around 2000 rpm and getting louder as engine speed increases. Itís not very loud; Iíve tried recording it with my phone and it...

So I got my first oil change over the weekend- the sound is still there but seems a little quieter now.

Should I just not worry about it?

2020 Camaro- first shift always rough?

My 2020 Camaro LS (2.0/A8) always has a delayed/harsh shift from 1st to 2nd the first time I drive my car each day. After that it’s butter smooth.

Is this normal?

Also, totally unrelated...
