hesitation in D

looked for a thread about this, but didn't see one.

all of a sudden today with 1,600 miles on the car, the tranny is acting up.

I put the car in R, backup, put it in D, add some gas, no D, more like N, and a hesitation as it has to "think" about going into D.

not a consistent issue, but enough of one to cause concern.

there are times when it slams into D to get going, of course depending on how much pedal I'm pushing.

got an appt for next week at the dealer.

anyone else have this problem?

Have you installed any USB or cigar lighter cables under the shifter?

I have had mine twice now refuse to shift into 2nd at full throttle and just bounce off the rev limiter in 1st, but haven't had any issues simply getting into drive.

The only type of port for that is in the dash itself, and I'm using the lighter as a charging port with a USB cable for my iPhone.

How does that affect the automatic trans responding to pedal input and a lag in response?

Quite simple. My question was have you routed any cables UNDER the shifter. If so, you could have unhooked or slightly unhooked the connector for the gear sensor.

I see what you mean now. No, I have not.

No, I have never had that problem (I haven't had any issues with the auto transmission), so sounds like something is wrong with yours, maybe it's just a software glitch, but a good thing You have booked an appointment for it.

That sounds like a recurring nightmare I have, where I keep pushing the gas and nothing happens! Haha

Haven't had that issue with the CX-3 though.

well today was a bit of a surprise and yet not:

took the car in, tech could not find source of problem and it did not throw any codes.

tech called Mazda, which said to pull that tranny out and send it to Mazda!

Mazda wants to inspect it and see what's going on.

My 2.5 month old CX-3 gets a new tranny this week.

this is the price of having a brand new model...they have bugs!
