Rolling into the throttle tends to help. And I've also heard that you can go in and they can load in a slightly different TCM map to change the shift points.

When I had my loaner 2017, I did that and it performed nicely.
But the pre-programmed "gears" that work in automatic mode (not the manual shift mode) annoyed me since... it does do away with the CVT advantages.
I did multiple launches in that loaner, and sometimes it would use the virtual gears, and other launches, it would be full-CVT.
As for transmission codes, I presume an SSM is needed to look into that.
