Bumpity bump bump for 2 new TSBs... one for a bumper retaining clip change (later production dates only), and a TCM update that deals with the way trans behaves in 3rd gear in sport shift mode (automatics only).
Before you ask, I don't know if this is the long-awaited TCM update that solves whatever problem people are having regarding shift quality or ESC interference or whatever. I haven't ever experienced a problem with my auto trans. at all. Apparently some people have experienced an unwanted automatic downshift when getting on the throttle hard in third gear in sport shift mode.
However, I was going to update my ECU anyway today. Hooked my car up to the GDS, started the update procedure, and... wait... what's this? The GDS won't even LIST this update, like it doesn't even exist. It shows ZERO update events under "ECU Upgrades". After asking a couple of the guys in the shop, we all came to the conclusion that we just haven't received the update for the GDS that includes this information. I did the WebUpdate on the GDS, but apparently it's a CD that will contain this info. Being as the TSB JUST came out today, the actualy update apparently hasn't filtered down yet.
So... please don't go storming into your local dealer tomorrow with this TSB in hand asking for the update to be performed. They may not have it yet either, and they will look at you like you've lost your mind until they DO get the actual update. As soon as I can get it to work on my car, I'll let you know. If anybody else gets it before then, let us know how it goes. I am really curious to see if this makes any other difference in the way the car drives besides the 3rd gear issue.
