The bucking problem in 1st gear is now gone.

It cost me $150 because the update wasn't done to fix a specific problem. I just wanted to have it done. However, I bet I could have gotten them to pay for it if I told them my car was bucking.

If you are running very old software you need to have it upgraded. Don't spend too much time thinking about it, just do it. I'm actually a little pissed off that the car didn't run like this when I bought it.
Wow, $150 to upgrade everything seems very reasonable. I hear stories of dealers asking $100s and saying the customer is responsible if the dealer burns out any modules in the process.
