When I test drove my car with the transmission tech, he demonstrated to me that with this transmission, you need to maintain throttle during gear changes in the low gears. This transmission has some manual transmission gearing qualities- they're called "dog gears."
Mind you, this is all because of US-mandated mileage requirements. I think by the year 2025, combustion engine vehicles are required to get something like 55 mpg, so this transmission is the first step in that direction.
In all honesty, my car has been evening out (I think) There is only shift hesitation about 2 or 3 times a week, and that is usually due to a condition, such as accelerating through a downshift scenario on hill descent or something like that.
Keep it mind that this car is all "drive by wire". The transmission is operating mostly off of data. So if you look at it in that respect, I guess you can expect these anomalies. The days of the "call and response" feel of an automatic transmission are essentially gone- or until they perfect this technology in heavy cars, like the JGC. These same transmissions are prevalent in many European sports cars, but those cars are lighter, sport-tuned, etc.
According to the service manager at my dealership, he strongly feels that this transmission is the wrong transmission for the JGC. And I would have to agree with him.
