Automatic box Fault

To GT and GT-P auto slammers;

I have found a problem in my auto. This may be only confined to my box, but keep a check on yours.
The service guys have contacted BTR, and they will be replacing one of the solenoid valves.

Here is the situation, it started at about 3500 km

Cold startup, low (conservative) normal auto selection. 1st changes into 2nd, revs drop to normal then the revs flare (technician speak for revs going up to 2000 then back). I equate it to something similar to slight band slippage, or low fluid level.

Once warm, sweeeeeeeeeet.

BTR told the service team that they will replace the solenoids, and that should have it operating normal.

Will keep you posted.

Re: Automatic box Fault

mines been fine, 11,000k now and not a hitch.

My only complaints are usually from my passengers as they climb back into their own cars, realising their own cars are not as fast and also doing quick check/replacment of their underpants.

what build number is yours Paul?

GTP Auto.
