    2015 Evoque Transmission

    Anyone experiencing a problem with the 4-5 downshift when shifting manually. Mine hesitates the revs pick and then the gears engage and you feel the braking effect. While all this is going on the car is free wheeling very disconcerting when going down hill the car can accelerate up to 5+ mph. Dealer acknowledges it doesn't seem right but so far no explanation. Issue now in Land Rovers hands. Want to understand if it is just my vehicle or do other have the same issue

    This is normal. The transmission completely disengages between 4th and 5th (and vice versa). More explanations here: Ur-Turn: Saturation Dive Into The ZF 9-Speed - The Truth About Cars

    "Downshifts

    The only real kink when shifting up through the gears is that the 4 to 5 shift might have an objectionable torque interruption"

    My 2015 model with 2k miles has a jerky shift from 4th to 5th before engine and transmission reach normal operational temperature, typically 10 - 15 minutes of driving.

    Happened to me yesterday while driving in automatic. It would stick around the 4/5th gear and rev to 5 rpm then drop to 1 rpm when the next gear kicks in cause the car to jerk as if its going to stall. The problem corrected itself when I shut the engine off and restarted. Got some other issues to that pop up and then resets when you turn the car off. I don't think I should be having problems when driving.

    Local dealer dropped in the Q450 transmission software upgrade. Shifts smoother but still have the 5-4 engagement delay. Not happy

    Got the Q450 letter in the mail a couple days ago. Can't say I've experienced the 5-4 delay but will be taking the Evo in for the remap today so we'll see what happens afterward.

    Just had the Q450 update. Biggest change I've noticed so far is that it seems to downshift to (first?) when rolling up to a stop. Hadn't noticed that before.

    After a few hundred miles, seems like the reprogram settles somewhere between S and D of the old program. Seems to be in the correct gear more often. e.g. when turning onto a side street, where it used to be in one gear too high causing a slightly jerky downshift, it now seems to be in the correct gear.

    That's good news. Taking my 2015 Evoque to the dealership tomorrow to have this service action done. I was a bit surprised by the default transmission feel when I got the car after coming from a Infiniti FX50S. Hopefully this SA will make the driving experience more refined.
