Transmission hasitation before full stop

Hello everyone,
After our car's first oil change we are noticing that our GC hesitates to stop before fully stop when breaking. This happens when you have driven for at least a couple hundred feet and you press the break pedal after that to stop the car. We tried to isolate the case and it seems the problem does not exist if you put the transmission to idle when breaking and before the car is fully stopped. Therefore we believe that this could be a transmission issue. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Have you had the tranny update? Read this, solves the tranny shifting problem:

Thanks. I read this, however I think in our case it always happens when you are trying to stop the car and you can see that the transmission downshifts to 1 but still the car hesitates to stop just before the fully stop.

Re: Transmission hasitation before full stop

I guess I got confused by the wording of "hesitating to stop when fully stopping".

When fully stopping, mine would hesitate to shift down when fully stopping, and I could see when it happened on the dash as it tried to shift from 2 to 1 right when it stopped. But you said you can see it already in first gear when you are stopping so I guess not the same symptoms as I used to have.

Maybe someone else will chime in.

Re: Transmission hasitation before full stop

Can someone confirm that the transmission learns the driving style and tries to adapt to it?
During our summer vacation we were using sport mode most of the time and in that time frame the problem started showing up.
In the last couple of months we are using the normal drive mode and it seems that the hesitation issue is becoming rare and rare.

Olivia,

Yes, the transmission is adaptive, so it learns!
