My TH starts off in second under normal conditions. I don't notice any bogging-down. When I do shift it manually from 1st, the engine revs so fast that I'm shifting at 15 mph. So 2nd gear starts seem pretty good to me.
Yup, I'll be waiting at an intersection, I'll be sitting for a few minutes sometimes. I'll see a gap, hit the gas, and I do like 1 mph into traffic and everyone goes flying around me and honking, lol. Today I even floored it when it did that and it sloooowly gained speed.Are you coming to a complete stop before pulling out? If not, that might be why the trans is in 2nd gear.
I'm honestly not sure, I will try and glance down next time it happens. Going to try and get to the dealership first thing tomorrow morning."Today I even floored it when it did that and it sloooowly gained speed."
That sounds like it is starting in 5th gear (1:1) instead of 1st or 2nd. Are the RPM's really low (less than 500) when it does this?
