Government agencies didn't so much as overreact, but saw a huge source of revenue. CARB, specifically. It had little or nothing to do with the environment.

I mean, they have to figure out those...

Yup - get a hitch rack.

The 1up is nice. If it's MTBs, look at a ReconRack, too.

Brake flush is every 2 years. That's a pretty standard thing to ensure there's no moisture in the fluid (that does absorb moisture). I think they figure the average miles per year is 10K, so at 40,...

If you accelerate briskly past 35mph, it'll move beyond that limit and be relatively normal, if "reluctant" in its shifting behavior.

You know, I just re-read the booklet and I'm thinking that maybe it would be covered.

No, I just read the booklet and it doesn't look like the extended warranty would cover a bell housing link.

But... I just had the oil changed on one of mine and the crush ring didn't seat properly...

I'm guessing your CD has had the fix applied.

The not shifting out of 3rd below 35mph is part of the fix and is engine/transmission temp related, not outside air temp related. At 35mph it will,...

Interesting theory. They've reflashed it twice now, since I bought it. You'd think they'd have checked and reflashed the TCU, too.

I'll have to ask next time I bring it in.

Definitely something wrong there.

Post fix it'll go down some, but within the range they say. That's even in my '15. The adblue recall shouldn't have any impact at all on your mpg; something is...

Not sure what you mean by getting the additional 4/48K. If the vehicle was sold before the stop sale, it had an extra 2 years added to the warranty, up to 100K miles. If purchased (punched) after...

Have both a '14 and a '15. The '14 did OK with the fix. As expected and as they said.

The '15, however, has the dead throttle on roll-on acceleration. Slow for a red light that changes green...

Hoo, boy. In Grand Junction right now and the lag is really bad now! I'm going to make a video this week to add to the others I've got lined up.

Off the line at home hasn't been an issue, but...

I think I'd almost take the buttons. Cleans up the center console from the little nubbin sticking up and not really doing anything more than being there. And performing the exact same functions as...

Around town, it will shift down as far as it can go and hold that gear for as long as possible, even going up minor hills.

40 mph, 7th gear and...

Yup, same here.

Time to make a video to document all of this. Slowing for turns, accelerating out of corners, passing, etc.

And, maybe because it's just starting up again, it seems like it's...

That's where it sounds like it's coming from, to me. That general area. I haven't messed around in there or under there yet. Kind of hard to do that when you're driving!

It's been in again for the same buzzing.

I've actually got 2 distinct buzzing issues. First one, at 1500 RPM (+/- about 75), the dash buzzes like crazy. Under load only, though. Or maintaining...

Looks like it as just minor stuff, so maybe as long as there was not structural damage, it fits into CPO criteria?

Except it's not a "stick", it's an oversized switch. Nothing more. You're no more shifting than you are cranking the engine over by turning the key.

They're hiding their frustration at someone just a tad too lazy to do any research themselves on the subject.

Huh, with the DS06's on the '14 (in 18" size), the vehicle is better in every aspect. Noise, wet, snow, handling.
