Well, my wife traded her S40 in for the XC. We got a leftover 2012 R-design and she now has 1800 miles on it. A few days ago, it started what feels like premature downshifting when braking. It is very noticeable below 30mph as it drops a couple gears. It almost feels if you were downshifting early in manu-matic mode. Can't really describe it any better. I thought she was exaggerating until I took it out myself and sure enough, it is. If you switch to manu-matic mode, but let the car downshift itself, it is smooth as it should be, but go back into 'D' and it becomes aggressive again. She works 2 minutes from the dealer so she took it over this morning for diagnostic and they found nothing. I can't find any related posts, so I'm hoping someone else has experienced this and can shed some light. I suppose I might try an ECU reset tonight, but I see that as a temporary solution.
Why couldn't they make this in a 6-spd. ? :)
