Auto Gear changes- second and third gear change jerks when it engages with a little acceleration.. (especially second gear)
Everyone/anyone notice these ?
When using the paddles .... gear change is very smooth.
Can't comment on the gear shift as I have a poor man's 2012 Overland, however the increased engine noise as she is loosening up is normal. I nurse-maid mine until the moment the temp gauge moves then drive "normal". Mine made the same noise around the same 2000kms mark but has not got any louder since (now sitting just below 40k). Kinda like the CRD "tick" as it adds to the robustness of the vehicle. Congrats on the CRD. Good choice
.......PS Paddles? you mean yours floats?
