Well, we will take it in and see what happens. We've thought about opening a file with GM, but are afraid of pissing the dealership off. Especially in a small town, everybody is connected one way or another.

It is a tough situation, but be assertive, not aggressive.SnowItch said:I hear you. I've lived in small towns - definitely changes the dynamics.
Snowitch, do you have a link to that particular thread?SnowItch said:Your problem sounds like an issue that someone reported on GMInsiders with a 4. An engineer actually traveled down to ride with him, experienced the issue, and flashed his ESM right there, and it took care of the issue.
You're kidding right?Mobius said:So the dealer checked it over and went for a road test, and I quote, "the road test seems normal for the new six speed transmissions[/color]." They reflashed the ECM, but it was current and updated, no change. The tech also said that the throttle lag is normal for the V6.
I'm not sure I agree with either statement, but I guess we'll have to wait and see if anyone else has a similar issue.

I wonder if this is related to a TSB that was put out about the front springs???? Anyone want to dig that TSB up????Mobius said:The second problem appears when trying to accelerate in a moderate to hard fashion, say when turning onto a highway, going from low speed to highway speed quickly. Before the Terrain went into the shop, the vehicle would accelerate and shift smoothly, usually hitting 5500-6000 RPM before shifting to the next gear (50-70% throttle).
Now, with the same throttle input, it will stay in the same gear until it nearly redlines, then it will blip (shifts up, down, then up again). It's kind of jerky, and feels like you're driving the piss out of it even when you really aren't. My parents were down to visit yesterday, and before they came down they were test driving an Equinox with the V6 as well, and even they noticed it. So it's not just me.
Tell her, It was the tranny shifting hard.TerryG said:We are up to about 5800 miles and maybe a half dozen times I have had the tranny do a hard shift into 3rd or 4th gear. This seems to happen under light to moderate acceleration. Doesnt happen often enough to be able to pay attention to when it happens. Its obvious enough when it happens that my wife says "what was that" Maybe someone can tell me so I can tell her. Thanks.
My 2011 Nox has a similar issue, I have the 4 cy, and when I accelerate from 2nd-3rd gear or 3rd - 4th there is a lag...almost a bog in the motor, then jerks when it picks up. Its not a strong jerk, but enough for my wife to say "why did you pump the gas just now" I didn't honeyTerrainKamchi said:I am so glad that I saw this post. I have had my 2011 for just under 2 weeks now, and twice when getting on the highway to go home from work, my transmission has been stuck in what I believe to be 5th gear when going 55, 60, 65 + mph, even though I had light throttle input - it definitely should have gone to overdrive / 6th gear. I am bring the car back today because it won't hold air in the front left tire either, always ending up at 5-7 psi lower than the other 3 (checked the pressure in the tire to make sure it wasn't the TPMS that was off... it was the tire). I traded my Infiniti FX35 in for this, which I had for 7 years without one issue, and this is a little scary after less than 2 weeks. Welcome back to American! At least they have good coffee and bagels at the dealership... I might be spending some time there!!
