automatic transmission is Boggy, sloppy & unsorted! Grrr.
I know our G8 Gts are plagued with an automatic tranmission that bogs in a tall gear, hesitates, shifts reeeeeally soft, and at times "hunts" for the right gear. Mine seems to do all the above. I have never felt a tranny that seems to "fight" the car as much as the G8 automatic tranny does.
Mine is stock and unless I am in manual mode....the car is frustrating to drive aggressively.
In the regular and sport mode, it oftens bogs in a high gear and does not drop a gear in order to get moving when I hammer the gas.
Only exception is if I am driving either 20-24mph and hammer it or about 45mph and hammer it. Then it takes off and rips. But just about any other speed, it bogs in a tall gear.
Is that pretty typical??? I feel the need to get a cortex tune...(I have no custom tune shops where I live) do you think a cortex tune will help.
This transmission really annoys me. It just seems to fight the car.
