I asked to have my A8 reflagged with the new program listed in the TSB and they said not unless I have a problem...


WTF??
Read the TSB. Then instead of referencing the TSB tell them you are experiencing these problems sporadically. List some of the problems outlined in the TSB. Bet you a coffee it works.

TSB repairs get back billed to FCA, and are to be done, only if certain symptoms and/or problems have been reported. I agree to describe the symptoms instead of the TSB nuimber... Think of it as FCA having to pay for a repair that may not be needed, or fixing something that was corrected as a running change on the assembly line.....

I was under the impression the TSB were posted so dealers would fix these things when cars were brought in.
Sometimes it's better to play dumb. I don't think some service guys like having tsbs shoved at them.

I say I have x problem. Do you know of any fixes. Then they are the hero

Told that dealer to pound salt. Found a new dealer today. Level 3 tech, I stay with car, they did the updates.
Let me know how you feel after driving with the update applied. I'm most interested in Track Mode, keep in 2nd gear and come to a stop. When it shifts to 1st gear is it violent? Mine on the Challenger is, and sometimes doesn't want to upshift in D (regardless of transmission mode). Both symptoms covered by the TSB and mine was built in December.

I can definitely tell a difference with the Charger, which was built in February and must have it already applied. I just want to see if Challenger owners with it applied have similar feelings that I do on the Charger.

I'm going to get mine flashed soon regardless, most likely.

Now, after flash, In track mode, when you come to a stop in 2nd the car softly shifts to 1st.

Thanks, just what I was looking for. Looks like I'll be stopping by the dealer at some point soon.
