I have found D mode to be hesitant even after it learns your style. I guess its the price of making it idiot proof(litigation proof). I have driven a number of other new cars, rentals while traveling and the drive by wire "designed for hesitation" seems to be an epidemic in new vehicles. Audis, nissans, VW's all have it, ughhh!
