Start off engagement


New Member
Mine seems to have a rough and not so very smooth engagement and start off most of the time unless I either feather the gas pedal or pin it. It's almost driving me nuts cause I don't know if I need to take it in or, it's just how they programmed it. To be more specific, it either feels like the tranny is slipping so theres hesitation, or it's just a fast and jerking start off.

CVTs are at their best and most efficient with gradual acceleration. They don't "slip", but that's not an uncommon perception among people not familiar with the way they work and comparing it to regular AT. They do tend to jerk somewhat if floored. Only you could determine if your's does it too much... Also remember it's just a 132hp car.
