    My guess is, if they do anything, is that it's in the tune. Hopefully they don't just say "they all shift like that" and fluff it off.

    I'm the type of person that won't accept that! Especially for spending $40k for a car and only a 1000 miles on it! BTW they gave me a loaner ATS with the 2.5.... This thing has no power at all my scion XB has bigger balls then the loaner ATS.

    I'm hoping you get it straightened out with no issues, I'm anxious for the results.

    I have the same issue. $50 says they can't find anything wrong.

    Kidding on the $50.

    Re: 2.0 auto hesitation

    Another Update: Service guy called me yesterday afternoon and told me there is an issue with some bolts that were not torqed correctly at the factory on the Turbo and actually came loose. The Technician was working on it yesterday and hopefully will hear from the dealer today. He was hoping this may correct the issue with the hesitation, but wasn't 100%.

    Re: 2.0 auto hesitation

    Final update: Picked up the car from the dealer last night, service guy went over the things that were done to the vehicle. Apparently the technician that was re-torquing the Turbo bolts broke a bolt while replacing the heat shield… idiot!!! He extracted the broken bolt and replaced it, and they also replaced the coolant in the turbo??? I haven’t noticed the hesitation as much but it seems like the car likes to hold 1st gear while slowing down, I guess it’s kind of nice as I don’t have to break as much when the tranny is doing it for me.. :-/ Anywho, glad to have the car back and hopefully I can get the Tune from BNR soon!!

    sidenote: the techniction was not able to duplicate the hesitation issue(of course he wasn't) but i have some kind of ticket # for the issue so we can refer back to it when the issue comes up again. Thanks guys!!!
