I suspect the fuel economy is because its a very heavy, big car with a small *mismatched" turbo engine. I suspect this causes the turbo to be exploited constantly when accelerating at all times. That said, with the small four, you will use less gas if you idle a lot including at stop lights. Too bad it didn't have a start/stop system. if the tranny fluid change doesn't improve shifting and there are no known electro-mechanical issues out there, if it were my car, I would try adding a bit of "transmission honey". I have used the Lucas product successfully in the past. Don't add it straight, always dilute with tranny fluid so it won't temporarily block a oil passage. Please keep in touch with the board since your experiences will help many new owners into the future.
