2016 First impressions and problems
Just got a 2016, it's my first diesel truck. I've got 2000 miles on it. Loving the truck so far, but I've come across a few things I'd like to throw out there and see what the smart folks here think about them.
1. Occasionally I get the hit from behind feeling when coming to a stop. Feels to me like the tranny downshifts to 1st right after I've come to a stop. It's happened maybe 6 times.
2. Weird shift from 4th-5th. This has only happened 4 times, but it's a lengthy shift (1-2 seconds) that also has a loud groaning noise. This has happened when the truck is warmed up and when it's cold.
3. This just happened this morning for the first time. I had the exhaust brake on and was going down a hill. I tried to apply power, but the truck wouldn't come out of the slow-down mode and continued to upshift to slow me even though I was trying to accelerate. I had to turn off the exhaust brake to get things back to normal.
I plan to mention all of these things to the dealer when I take it for the first oil change, but I'd like to be armed with some unbiased advice from the board when I go in.
Thanks in advance. I'm looking forward to being a part of the forum.
