I just did a 2000 round trip drive to Canada. Overall the car worked well, but I did notice some things that bothered me. In 7th gear (touring mode) doing above 65 when I putting it under additional load, I got this feeling that the car was missing, no codes, pulled away fine, just did not seem to feel right. I did have a run for about 60 miles at between 95 MPH and 105 and except for this miss/lugging feel issue everything was great. Also I noticed that the console door is not really that counter balanced and once it gets past the opened locked position, it just slams shut. I don’t recall this happening in my C6.
Also I’m not a big fan of the econ mode, not sure it really buys much unless you are driving on the salt flats. It’s kind of annoying when it kicks in and out and I can feel and hear the difference.
Anyone else noticing these things?

Pete; Just to cover the base: Check your coil-pac wires to the spark plugs. I've read similar complaints from other owners that found a loose spark plug lead on at least one cylinder.
I read that also and have check the ones I can get to without taking the engine bay apart. All is well as far as I can see. Im going to put my code reader on the car and see if there are any codes.
Just checked for codes, none! Have to see if I can reach the other packs and check if the are loose.

I do see the springs in the console cover, but not sure they do much except slam the cover harder.

Thanks Jim
Can you keep code reader going while simulating issue?
I can as its a Scan Gauge which allows you to get info live from your ODB II port for cars that don't have that info available as they are too old. I'll give that a shot on my next long run. You think codes are not stored if they trip one?

Thanks Jim
