Hi, my name is Chris and I am writing you to see if you got your problem fixed on the tC. I just bought the 07 tC and I have the same problems. What did you do to fix it or did you get it fixed. Please email me back asap so that I may find out whether I need to take it in for service. Thank you.

mojo712.. how many miles do you have on it now? if it's under 1000 then i'd say let the car learn how you drive. the computer that controls the engine and transmission will learn how you drive. There is "grandma mode" where if you have to "get on the gas" quickly the car will act like it doesn't know what you want.. Then there is "sport mode" where it will aggressive select the gears. How do you get it in either of these modes? well.. if you drive aggressively the computer will always enable (once it sees on average how you're driving) the "sport mode" as i call it.
The "grandma mode" can give the sensation that the car has lost its mind and isn't responding to your inputs. Sorry to put grandma down like that
Only 2 ways to clear "grandma mode".. One is if the car is past break in, then drive a little more aggressively, the computer within about 2-3 days of driving (about 300-400miles) will catch up with what you're doing. The second way is take it to the dealer and have them clear the ECU memory of what the car has learned for the transmission. And then you can re-teach it how you drive. Hope the helps..
