View Full Version : Question about our transmission

This might pertain specifically to the C6.5 but I figured I'd keep general since all C6's have the same 6 speed zf tip transmission. Basically, I noticed that if I floor it at a light till about 50mph, the car will shift from 1st into 2nd and stay that way until the rpm's come down to like 2.5-3k, which it will then shift normally into 3rd and 4th, etc, etc. I am in normal "Drive" mode, but this feels more like sport mode. If I take off normally, then all the gears will cycle through without any kind of delay. Any reason for this?

Mine does that as well when letting off after a full throttle jump. I think it is a function of the pressure of the fluid keeping the car in gear. Once the pressure drops, the transmission will then shift as normal.

All 6-cylinder C6s have 6 speed Tip. Don't forget about the CVT.

And as for the shift mapping, the computer considered how quick you got on it and changed to a more aggressive mapping, yet still within the scope of Drive mode. Then goes back after a bit.

normal. but the real reason is that rather than immediately shift up when you release, only to have you 'smack it' again it stays in the lower gear to avoid a lot of unproductive but high stress (re-) downshifts.

said differently, it thinks you are in a situation where you will need the more aggressive mapping (for longer than just the one hit). you can always paddle shift out when you know that you are done.

Provided your car had the paddle option box checked when it was built, or added later :) .

Yup, I stated that at the beginning. As does the 4.2 and S6. :P

I'm starting to miss the paddles that my previous C6 had. Can't have paddles and a heated steering wheel at the same time d'oh!

I just meant that there are some C6s that Do Not have tiptronic (2.0T all have CVT transmissions) . Just nit picking since you said the word "all". [emoji39]
