Same here. Mine is quite sweet. I test drove 3 times and had no surprises. Test is as much as you want. The dealer won't mind. It is not random, at least in mine (and others too as it seems).

No, don't do this... based on reports that 550 starts off in 2nd gear in D, that to me is a complete show-stopper. I love mine when pulling away from the lights.... 1st....2nd... 3rd... Always the same (unless it's a turn), always predictable, simply sweet...
