MPG never went down for me, only improved as the gearbox changed smoother and as required.

MPG will either stay the same or improve, not get worse.

Yes sure, how do I do that? Should I simply generate a new message?

Just add it on here, admin read & check on a regular basis (but only when the pubs are closed) ?

HI Steve

Did the MPG which went down ever normalise Steve? I was thinking of resetting the auto gearbox but might give it a miss if the MPG is at risk of getting worse;
Hi Kismet. Yeah, the mpg went back to normal. Probably had the low mpg figure through a combination of a heavy right foot and short journeys with a cold engine. ?

Here are the instructions on how to re-set the memory on your Automatic Gearbox.

1) Press Start button but don't turn on the engine.
2) Press the Accelerator down to the floor for about 15 seconds.
3) Hit the start button again to turn off the power.
4) Remove foot from Accelerator
5) Waity for 2 Mins.
6) Start the engine and Drive.

Simple but very effective- you WILL notice a difference- it re-sets the learnt driving/gear changes back to factory- re do as and when required.

Hope this helps.
Maffy you are a complete star 😜 Don’t know why I’ve come across this old post but I’ve just followed your instructions and shot up the lane like a rocket. I kept saying to my hubby the engine is not quite as responsive as my Freelander 2.Well now it leaves it in the ditch although I might end up in the ditch myself if I’m not careful 😊

I am pleased to have been of service, do it every so often as the gearbox recognises driving style and sets itself up-so if your in town the driving stye will be differnt than being on the open road a t speed.
glad you like it.

Thanks Maffy - it worked like a charm for my SD4. Much more reactive and smoother than before.
I was a bit disappointed by this 9-speed auto, but no longer :)

Wow, I came across your post Maffy and after reading some of the comments I thought I’d try it, what a difference! Jerk on take off when hot has gone too which is a bonus 😊 if you’re up in Liverpool anytime mate I’ll buy you a pint 👍

Does the 9 speed auto in the current New Evoque also learn driving style over time?

@Redfranx Welcome to the forum.

It's worth putting your Evoque year and spec. in your forum profile so people can see what you've got :)

Yes, I was told it does when I took the car in for the Balance Shaft replacing. I asked, they did however tell me that it could only be reset by them using a computer, which they did for me, even though I don’t think it needed it, and I didn’t notice any difference when I got it back 🤔

Hi Redfranx, I live in Chester, so you can post me a Coke Zero-LOL
glad it worked for you, does make all the difference.
enjoy and do the reset about knce a month as the gearbox learns your routine very quickly.
cheers.

Not sure if this was answered definitively, but does this trick work on the new Evoque with 9 speed auto gearbox?
