Hello all,

I have a 2014 coupe l4 CVT with 43,000 miles.

Today I was getting on the freeway and I shifted from D into S and clicked one of the paddles to switch into paddle shifting mode. I immediately lost some engine power (maybe half?) and the transmission wouldn't shift into another gear. The check engine light started blinking. After a few seconds the car decided to shift and started lurching forward. I put the car back into D and I still did not have full power so I pulled off the freeway and shut the car off. When I turned it on everything was normal again. D, S, and paddle shifting all worked.

Has anyone experienced this or know what this could be? Is there reason to worry? Also if I took it in to the dealer would they be able to tell me what happened?

Thanks

This sounds like a case of user error which caused the engine to over rev and go into limp mode to protect itself from further damage.

Then what was my error? I didn't do anything out of the ordinary. Just a normal shift into sport and then one click on the paddle before the madness occured. I was only at around 3000 rpms in sport mode before using the paddle.

Naw. The transmission won't execute a downshift that would over-rev the engine. I'm calling bull poo on this one.

I don't know what you did. I wasn't there.

Okay. I'll let you tell it.
