So i have just over 10,000 miles on my T5 S60 and i have to ask you guys what you think about the shifting on the car in regular drive mode in gears 1-3 especially 1-2. It seems like the shift is never consistent and i really need to feather and be mindful of the accelerator. It feels like once it shifts into 2nd gear that the rpms jump right back up instead of building from lower rpms and is quite jumpy. Then once it shifts into second the power going into third is not consistent and hesitant.

Has anyone else noticed this? Do you think there is an issue? I know that the shifting pattern of gears 1-2 is nothing that i have ever felt. I am coming from a 2007 VW Passat which had really decent shifts.

I got the impression from driving that the gearing is not very linear -- by that I mean a big difference between 1/2 and 3, normal progression 3/4/5, and a bit of a stretch to 6.
