    Default civic 08 auto gear info needed.

    i wanted to know if the gear off the civic 08 is completely smooth during shifting gears or does it give slight jerk?


    today i tested a 08civic auto. when changing from 1st gear to 2nd , the car gave a slight jerk . somthing like the 2000 auto civic gave. so is tht normal?

    i drove 2008 auto civic many times. almost negligible jerk...unnoticeable during smooth driving.

    though its more pronounced when revving the engine ofcourse. but not like old cars
    The SUB will do what the BOX tells it to do!

    The car u have driven, most probably was on CNG. If no, then there is some problem cuz on petrol, the jerk is very very slight and on CNG, its quite noticeable sometimes

    mm well it jerks a bit cuz it doesnt have a CVT technology.. i had 1.6 lancer (auto) n believe u me its really a pleasure to drive that car as it doesnt give jerk.. once i drove my cousin's civic 1.8 auto n i got dissapointed as its quiet expensive car and still the jerk thingie hasn't been removed.. new vitz also have CVT technology, i havnt drove it yet but hope that it wud be smoother too..
