- 2016 Regal AWD T
2016 Regal turbo AWD. 11XXX miles. I’ll start by saying I’m aware of adaptive learning and how much fun it can suck out of a car. I’ve pushed the car a few times but not much in the week I’ve had it. Anyway today I decided to do a 0-60 sprint to see what the car will do. I left it in drive, turned off traction control and stability control, put my foot on the brake, brought the RPMs up until I heard the turbo and launched. Car left hard but then proceeded to short shift thru each gear at about 4500 RPMS. I thought that was odd so I then floored it at about 20 and it shifted at 6000 but it wasn’t a solid shift. There was a noticeable slip from 1-2 and 2-3 at WOT. I dropped into manual mode and the shifts were fine. Car is under warranty I just want to know if this is something normal or if it warrants a trip to the dealer. Judging by the mileage and tire scuffs I’m pretty sure the car was owned by an elderly person so maybe adaptive learning?
