Mountaineer Gear shift
I've noticed this with my mountaineer:
When I usually put my mountaineer in gear, it takes a little bit for the transmission to catch on, is this normal?
Also, I am one that when going in reverse I like popping my car into N (neutral) and going with that motion, pressing the breaks and going into D (drive). With other cars that i've had this process has always been really smooth, but with the mountaineer when i put it into N while going in reverse it kind of slows down or shifts funny, and then when I brake and pop it in D, it takes a bit to catch on, is this normal with this vehicle?
It's something that I don't really like but I don't know if its something that this type of vehicle does.
Ps. Acceleration on the mountaineer is also kind of crappy, and loud, at times it feels like the motor might fall off (it's not horrible but again I am used to cars and trucks that accelerate quite fast and without much noise).
Is all of this normal? I'd like to hear your guy's opinions, I really appreciate your input.
