    Default 2.2 direct auto 'sticks' in first when towing

    towed my caravan a couple of times and noticed occasionally when moving off that the box will not change up until its revving the nuts of the engine. It doesn't do it all the time and is not always associated with gradients or quick getaways. It does it with leisurely move offs on the flat as well. Any ideas? Its still under warranty but thought I would get a few wise words from here before I go down the dealers!

    thanks

    Does it change up a gear if you lift off slightly?

    no, I have tried lifting off completely but it stays in first. I can put it in to manual and shift to 2nd that way.
