It's a little kick you get when you are about to fully stop. The older software tells the gearbox to change to 1st just before the car comes to a stop so you feel a kick. Some say with the new updated software it does not change to 1st at all and starts from 2nd. but in my case it waits for the car to fully stop and then changes to 1st. As I said this is only 100% effective when it is done along with tranny fluid, guibo, etc. However you feel the difference right away.
