At first I thought I missed 2nd but as I got accustomed to driving this car, it became more obvious that the car was making the decision. Under normal or aggressive driving you'll never see this happen
I agree, the 1st to 4th has only happened about three times in 700 miles. You really have to be going SLOW to activate this. It might happen in a parking lor or turning behind grandma after the light goes green. It is really a non issue in normal driving.
