Vehicle Electronic Control System II)  - Starting and driving - Mitsubishi Carisma Owner's Manual - Mitsubishi Carisma

Designed for optimum control and equipped with adaptive control capabilities, the electronically controlled transmission optimally matches gear shifts to almost all driving and road conditions.

CAUTION

This system is strictly intended to provide supplementary functions. When travelling downhill under certain conditions or immediately after starting off when the automatic transmission is cold, no automatic shiftdown may be made. The driver should shiftdown to a lower gear to use engine braking. Try to drive safely at all time.

NOTE

During running–in period or immediately after reconnection of the battery cable, there may be a case where gearshifts are not made smoothly. This does not indicate a faulty transmission.

Gearshifts will become smooth after the transmission has been shifted several times by the electronic control system.
