Hey,

I bought a new 2010 and have about 3000 kms on it. Recently I noticed that the transmisson won't downshift to 1st gear unless I absolutely floor the gas. Anything else and it won't downshift.
Does anyone else have this problem?

Thanks

You might have some sort of winter mode turned on.

Some vehicles have a snow/winter mode which once activated does not let the transmission go into first gear most of time to avoid wheel spin.

I don't think 05-10 model has the snow mode, at least my 05 does not have it.

At what speeds do you notice the problem of not going into 1st gear.

yeah I don't think the car has any winter mode. Basically if I'm in a higher gear and I press on the gas to pass a car, it won't downshift to first for more power. Well unless I absolutely mash the pedal, anything else and it will remain in second

I'm pretty sure it's the gear ratio that's causing it. My 05 never downshifted either around ~20mph unless I floor the pedal a bit.

Turn off TCS, see if it drives any differently.
