I just bought a 2017 Mirage ES with the CVT transmission. I've noticed on occasion the trany will seem to "disengage" while I'm stopped at a light UNTIL I step on the gas. This has caused some problems if I'm on a slight uphill, as the car will roll backwards a little until I step on the gas. Is this normal, or do I have a "developing" problem?
Idle Neutral Logic. However, you should have Hill Start Assist that holds the brakes for a few seconds while you move your foot to gas to prevent the rolling you describe.
CVT owners... what is "Idle Neutral Logic"? And what is it like to drive?
Keep in mind it is one of the early threads on this forum, started when there weren't many of these cars available in our market. In fact, it might be helpful to know that this forum was started about a year before the car made it to North American shores.
I also wish I could set the hill angle before HSA kicked in and set the duration of brake application before it let off.

Zero, my 2014 ES Plus gone but not forgotten. We're driving the Beetle of the 21st century

I don't know if anyone else has noticed this but, the remotes don't work when the engine is running. On frosty mornings, I like to start the car, get out, and lock all the doors so some nim-nod can't easily drive off with my car. Every previous remote-equipped vehicle I've owned allowed this, in a couple of models I could even arm the security system.
If I learn how to reprogram the ETACS, would this be something I could change? There's a few little software quirks I'd like change.
