Hello.....want to get some opinions/thoughts from this group. I have a 2016 Premium Plus Q3 and have about 1,600 miles on it now. I've had a handful of instances that the vehicle would not upshift despite high RPMs and continued acceleration. All three times have been when accelerating from a complete stop, shifts up once, twice, then seems to "stick". I take my foot on the accelerator and it seems to then correct itself on a second attempt. Secondarily, I've had a few downshift instances that have felt like clunks...seems to have happened most often in the 45mph or under range. Honestly, the "clunks" bother me more because it seems more frequent. I have discussed with the dealer and didn't get much feedback other than "we'll monitor it". Am I overreacting? Thoughts?

I wouldn't say you're over-reacting - but at the same time, 1600 miles is not much to wear-in. Give it another 1-2K and see how it goes - in other words, monitor it ;)

Thanks, Roger.....appreciate the feedback. I don't think I need to explain how disheartening it is to have the slightest bit of doubt about the vehicle already. It seems everyone has differing opinions on the wear-in topic which makes it that much harder to understand what is ok and what is concerning. I will say that when I hit the 500 mile mark, it started to drive so much smoother so I'll try to be patient for a little while longer.
