They did all outstanding recalls and updates. And, as I imagined, the only issue is the transmission...
Shifting quality has degraded, but not drastically. I notice lower gear lags and rougher shifts 1-2, 2-3, 3-4 and down as well, and I end up with 3rd gear during rolling stops and revs with little power about half the time.
I have also seen about a 2 MPG drop in mileage. Although I have yet to make a decent highway trip to see if anything is different there.
It is not a radical change, just what I had been trying to avoid, as my trans was doing beautifully up until I took the plunge.
Hopefully its just a lirttle AL because of that update. I know I was a bit sluggish and lost 8th after my only update and took a while to return. My MPG was down also but returned after a while. In my case 7th rather than 8th on the highway was the reason mostly.
