Think I found a cure for the hesitation problem, car shifts to 2nd gear rate at take off and that causes the car to hesitate and shift 1-2-1-2 trying to gain speed for 3. Fooled around with it for a week now and discovered that it has traction control (go figure, I didn't know it had it and salesman never mentioned it) The traction control is starting the wheels out slow as you would on ice. You start fast on ice and the front wheels will skid. There has to be a fault with the detection. SOOOOO I turned mine off through the driver assist menu. (ALTHOUGH I have to do this every time I start the car.) WOW VERY little if any hesitation and the RPMS go zooming up when you press on the gas! The problem isn't really the trans, it is in the computer control program that if it is allowed to persist will cause damage to both motor and transmission. Fix it and I will be happy!
