My MY12 XC60 with the T6 shifts well with one exception: the second to third shift under light acceleration.

It feels like having the air sucked out of the engine: the car momentarily slows and then begins to accelerate.

You can make it go away, of course, by manually shifting.

But what the car REALLY needs is the Sport program that was in the manual and in the online specs...until it wasn't.

What a shame that we have two polar opposite choices: a shift program so far on the side of economy that you might as well be in a gutless Honda four cylinder or the overly sensitive throttle response of the manual program.

Damn shame, IMO.

I had that complaint prior to my first service interval and listed it in my issues. After picking it up, the problem is no longer there so this may be something the dealer can fix or there may be a software update. Now mine is not a T6 but it now accelerates quite smoothly across a range of throttle positions where before it shifted to early.
