Outlander Transmission Problems
1. the auto seems to "hunt" for the right gear way too often when going uphill. instead of staying in the correct gear it seems to try and be more fuel efficent and change up to a higher gear for a short time (say 20 seconds), then realise it needs a shorter gear and change back down. on a longer acsent (not even steep) this can happen several times. i find myself using the manual tiptronic and selecting a gear one down from where the auto chooses and leave it there until the climb is over, then put it back in "drive". do other people experience this? can the computr be tuned to avoide this?
2. when the air conditioner is on, the aircon fan (in the engine bay) continually switches on and off. no problem with this as i figure this is what is suppose to happen, problem is it''s very loud and is noticle / distracting in the cabin. any ideas?
