I am still on my second tank of gas. But my automatic LS model has a bad hesitation at partial throttle between shifts. It almost feels like the brakes are applied between shifts. Maybe not that bad. It's not as noticeable under heavy throttle. It reminds me of an older car with the vacuum advance hose off. It even irritates my wife.

I've heard the car may "learn" my driving style. Even if that's true, it should start from a better base line than this. Anyone else have this issue?

I do, I posted a thread about this. This is due to the brake assist system. I have 2,200 miles on mine and it still does it.

If you have any answers please let me know.

If it has to do with the vehicle learning your driving style then maybe with some way to reset it that might solve the problem

Yea this is a problem reported by more than one person. It would be cool if the car learns your driving style, but i wouldn't hold my breath for that.

Do you know if its possible to disable the brake assist system? Or even purchase the car without it? I'm still interested in getting a Trax but I would also get very irritated if the car forever has a lag..

Hi Doogle,

We can imagine how frustrating this may seem for you. Have you brought this to the dealership's attention yet? If you need additional assistance with this, we can certainly communicate this to the dealership as well. Let me know in a private message!

Lively and quick are not words I have heard used to describe the Trax, but now that has changed. Just wait till you get into an actually powerful vehicle. You'll have a ball.

I have 2 quite powerful cars, the Trax wasn't meant to compete with either one of them.

Both cars I own are over 400 hp.

The Trax is nimble and quick it reminds me of a Jeep wrangler I had years ago, that was why I bought it.

I have a 2014 Chevrolet Trax and dont have that issue with mine. I will say that I am trying to find a group that is willing to go in with me and split a workshop manual.

I presently have about 700 miles on my 2016 Trax LS AWD, and started to become aware of the hesitation problem at about 400 miles. At first I thought it might be a bad batch of gas, but am now halfway through a refill of brand-name gas and the hesitation seems to be getting progressively worse. It's most prevalent at slower speeds and light throttle (How I drive most of the time). But yesterday it really got my attention when I was making a left turn under light throttle, saw I had misjudged the speed of the oncoming traffic, and punched the gas halfway through the turn. There was virtually no response for about a full second before it "took" and got me out of there; at that point I realized the hesitation was more than just a nuisance, but potentially a safety hazard.

Thanks for the posts on the problem, it will give me some support when I talk to the service department.
