I bought the 2011 v6
AT against my better judgment. All along, one of my only stipulations was that the 'Stang be a MT. I was even willing to consider GTs in order to get the elusive MT since most V6 models seemed to come with AT. Well, I finally caved since I found the EXACT V6 model I wanted (silver, stone interior, premium, MCA package) except that it had AT. Ultimately, it meant my wife could drive it, though, since it wasn't a stick.
For the most part, I've enjoyed it. Living in ATL, an AT is very nice for when 85/75 becomes a parking lot. No more Texas
2-step to move 1 foot in traffic.
What I've noticed, though, is a weird throttle response where stepping on it has about a second or two disconnect between sending gas and getting any response from the engine. Maybe that's a bit of hyperbole, but it FEELS like a second or two between mashing the gas and moving.
Another thing I've noticed are some really weird shift points where sometimes coming out of a turn at low speed (around 15 mph or so) leads to a bit of a jolt as I guess the car maybe downshifts from 3rd to 2nd or 2nd to 1st?
Has anyone experienced these two things and have any sort of solution? I have thought about talking to the dealer, but I wanted to get some input first.
