After about a week of driving, I have a question on this CVT thing. Here's what I am noticing. When in drive and just driving normally, lets say I let off the gas and coast.
About 7 seconds after coasting, I feel the car slow down, like it has been put in another gear. In other cars, after letting up totally on the gas, you ....coast and the car slows down (mph) simply by loss of forward motion due to weight, wind, etc.
This is different.
When using straight drive mode, meaning put the CVT into drive....the car seems to "grab" downshift or something immedately after you let up on the gas. I don't get to "coast" freely. I am not in the autostick mode, just in "D" drive.
Is this normal, or you think an adjustment is necessary? Your car do this?
I just looked at your profile. Do you have a Sport or a Limited? The floor mats are standard on the Limited (not the premium ones) and you show 18" wheels which are also part of the Limited package. Did you get those wheels as an option or did they short you the floor mats?
Artificial intelligence is no substitute for natural stupidity
Just took delivery of my compass and love it so far, one issue i have is when coasting up to a red light (or anytime for that matter) if my foot is not on the gas the car seems to want to slow me down,,, tough to explain but its like the car doesnt let you just coast, its almost like it downshifts and the transmission is trying to slow you down? any ideas?
