Re: 2014 5.7 Throttle Lag

Re: 2014 5.7 Throttle Lag

went by dealership to pick up plate.. as soon as i started to mention the throttle issue, my rep finished my sentence.. told me that the adaptive transmission takes about 5000 miles to break-in/adjust

Re: 2014 5.7 Throttle Lag

Whats adaptive transmission??? Sounds like a bunch of hooey to me, as mine seems about as responsive as any vehicle I have ever driven. It may simply be that the last car you drove was more responsive, but 5000 miles before a transmission is responsive sounds like your rep has had to calm a few people down in the past and that is the best they can come up with.

Seems good to me, and you aren't even in sport mode although I see eco mode is off. Try the same in sport mode and traction control all the way off and I bet you lay tracks.

video is showing unresponsiveness.. it has been very noticeable when trying to pull out in heavy fast traffic where split seconds count

Re: 2014 5.7 Throttle Lag

Maybe it's b/c I'm driving a turbo 4, but that seems plenty responsive to me. Did you try in sport mode?
