Ya I can't really look at men for too long in traffic. They start following me home unless I trick them and get off an exit earlier just when the exit is about to end. Works every time. Women on the other hand, we usually become traffic friends or haters.
Traffic friends hahahaahah!

The chick wit the neck tattoos in the Chevy TrailBlazer that LOVES your car asks for a lighter and proceeds to follow you into the parking lot and get into an argument with a homeless person and yells rather explicit sexual things that she would enjoy doing to you, to said homeless person.. all while you are just trying to hit up the Taco truck. 🌮:clap::fistbump:

what annoys you? legit question, not being a d1ck, just trying to get insight. ive heard this before and im curious as to what exactly about it annoys you or how you drive it in daily driving. do you leave it in sport or sport +?
Its ok on the interstate and high speed backroads. I usually paddle shift in sport mode then and its enjoyable.

But in the city in drive it trips all over itself. It hunts constantly, always in the wrong gear, and jerk shifts every time I slow down. Sport mode is better here, but then that introduces other annoying things. Revving way too high when your barely moving. Its just too many gears.

This transmission does not like being gentle. Driving normal is when it acts the worst. Its actually much smoother when your beating on it but can't really do that in the city.

Again this all comes back to the programming because the A10 in my wife's Explorer is a joy to drive in the city.

That's some story right there. Both weird and awesome at the same time.

Had me at neck tattoos and Trailblazer. Bet that Trailblazer is a few different colors with a spare that's been driven like a permanent tire too. Perfect candidate to park next to in the Target parking lot.

That's interesting because I don't have those issues with mine. I spend about 75% of the time in drive, 25% in sport. When I'm in the city I have a very comfortable ride and don't have any hunting; it's always where it needs to be. And it's super smooth...no jerking. If I step on it, there is a very slight hesitation as it finds a gear but nothing worse than the Fusion, Edge or any other autos I've had. I use Sport when I'm having a fun-run through the canyons or whatever and it's certainly a different experience, and definitely not smoother than Drive for me. I wonder if a reflash would help.

Interesting. I've found it much more tolerable and tame in D/normal mode. Though sometimes if I want to get moving quickly it will delay downshifting more than I'd like. Simple enough to use paddle or put into sport.

But to each :rockon: I've had my '19 on 1 track so far and i liked how it shifted entering and exiting turns. I'd love to try a manual with the revmatching sometime to see how it compares to the T5 im more used to. Far superior im quite sure

Manual windows or auto windows IIRC.
I had an older 90's Nissan truck with manual everything and took my niece to lunch. I asked her to lock the door when she got out and she stared blankly at the door till I came around to show her. Funny to me how there are drivers out there now who have never used a manual window roller and smashed their knuckles on the arm rest or burnt off a layer of skin on the upholstery. There are drivers now who have no clue about holding the handle up so the door actually locks. I barely know about using a choke to start a car haha.
