I find that to be a PITA first thing in the morning when still cold. I pull
out of my driveway and turn up a hill and it just sort of hangs for a few
seconds when it shifts. I've not tried to manually shift it to see if it is
Seems to be a long lag when going from drive to reverse also. Another minor
PITA when backing out of a parking space, or when backing into my driveway
when there is a car coming up behind me.
If "drive-by-wire" is that much of a pain, I think I'll stick with cars
with mechanical throttle controls. ;-)
One would think that this should all be correctable with a simple
software change. I wonder what's taking Hyundai so long to deal with it?
I would like EVERYTHING manual except the transmission.
But, I think ESC requires an electronic throttle.
BTW, my throttle and shifting are fine. Not too sensitive, not too
numb. Or, maybe the last 2-3 vehicles I have owned have all had
similar throttles and I'm used to it.
