Looking for advice on driving a QTronic
Just to be clear, I'm only looking for advice on the 6 speed semi-automatic mode, not the full auto - that's easy :-)
Anyhow, when I flip my box to semi-auto and shift up manually, I find it's constraining me : I can't shift beyond 3rd gear at low to mid speeds (say 50-60 km/h). I get a "ping" every time I try. Is this normal? Or should I get the box looked at?
My old A Class Merc had a 5 speed semi-auto mode, and unlike the Alfa it freed me to shift up as early as I wanted. It would sometimes refuse to shift down if my speed was too high, which seems normal, but never when shifting up, which is perhaps where my confusion comes from.
Any advice welcome. Thanks!
